What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional therapy is rooted in medical science yet looks at the body in a holistic way. It works on the principle that each person is biochemically unique and has different nutritional requirements.
Who can it benefit?
Everything we eat has an effect on our wellbeing and therefore improved nutrition can benefit almost any condition, including digestive conditions, weight problems, arthritis, skin disorders, mood disorders and stress, asthma, and hormonal imbalances.
How does it work?
Treatment involves tailor-made programmes that enable the body to achieve optimum health. Allergy testing can be conducted to detect food sensitivities as well as other imbalances that may be affecting the body. The allergy testing is done by the Vegaexpert machine, which does full health screening. This machine works at a bioresonance level and is non-invasive.
Whether you suffer from a condition, wish to detox safely and maximise energy, or just want to enhance your life, healthy eating is a cornerstone of preventative health care as well as treatment for maintaining quality of life, even into old age. www.westportclinic.net
