Nutrition – Food as medicine

Your body’s cells and chemistry are made of what you ingest from the food you eat. The way you live your life and the food you eat determine your future health and wellbeing. As Hippocrates said “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food”. According to Dr Bernard Jensen an american Naturopath a large number of cancer deaths may be linked to diet.

Other conditions that also can be linked to diet are cardiovascular diseases, allergies, digestive disorders, arthritis, diabetes, neurological conditions, just to number a few.
All diseases and the process of aging are eventually a breakdown of the body’s immune system. Nutrition aims to fortify, to increase and to restore the immune system to optimum function leading to optimum health.

Optimal health is the pathway to longevity and anti-aging. None of those generative diseases that were mentioned before are inevitable, even in those individuals who have strong family genetic history.

Nutritional medicine, has the ability to change your genetic make-up, optimize your wellness and well being.

Your body needs the correct amount of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates and lipids to function properly. Nutritional medicine restores the body’s biochemistry with macro and micro nutrients that are native to your biochemistry.

I use special diets that will suit your health condition and will improve the function of your body’s systems. In addition, depending on your health condition I may prescribe the use of complex mix of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, anti-oxidants, bioflavonoids, herbs and amino acids in carefully selected combinations and doses.
