“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
Nutrition is not only the maintenance of health and vitality, but also the treatment of specific disorders by using food as medicine. With the fast paced stressful lifestyle of our society, many of us are eating highly processed and refined foods. This does not supply us with the variety of fresh natural foods packed with nature’s balance of nutrients needed to restore and maintain good health. The naturopathic nutritionist provides advice on the use of fresh whole-foods and supplements to re-establish optimum nutritional status required for good health.
Joanne’s mantra of utilising “food as medicine” is founded on the belief that our diet can be medicinal when eating the right foods as nature intended in their natural state. Chemically altered or refined foods on the other hand, are incredibly detrimental to our immediate and long term health.
In a consultation, the client’s existing diet will be examined to identify the changes required to facilitate optimum health.
If you are not sure about what foods are healthy and those that aren’t because of sneaky marketing, advertisements and fad diets that come and go, then Joanne can identify what foods can help you achieve your full potential and vibrancy!
