My approach

Types of health concerns nutrition can support

Nutrition therapy can support a wide range of health issues.

Nutrition is the cornerstone of health and well being. A balanced nutritional program seeks to assist your body’s innate healing ability. Small changes can have a large impact on your energy levels, your total state of well being, maximizing your potential for wellness and vibrancy, hopefully improving the quality of ur life, and where possible prevention of disease.

Nutrition has played a significant role in your life, even from before your birth, although you may not have always been aware of it. Nutrition will continue to affect you in major ways, depending on the food you select, your inherited strengths and weakness (your genes) and what you do and the way you live (your lifestyle).

You are not alone ! There is an ever increasing number of foods and products to choose from, some healthier than others. Perhaps the available time you have to prepare food or even to eat seems to shrink, and you are often eating on the go. To make matters worse, there is an overwhelming amount of seemingly contradictory advice on what to eat from experts, and reports in the news which routinely report results of the latest studies. Magazines regularly promote one diet or another. New diet and health books seem to hit the bestseller lists with regular frequency.

Working at the forefront of nutritional science, balance ur bod nutritionists keep abreast of  health and nutrition research literature, as well as governmental, nutrition/health association, and academic guidelines and recommendations.

Just as no two snow flakes are alike, no two humans are alike (unless you are an identical twin). We are as different on the biochemical level deep inside our bodies as we are in our appearance. This biochemical uniqueness is represented by the foods and food combinations that make us feel best:  the food or the proportions that nourish you may not be the same as someone else. There is unfortunately no ‘one size fits all’ diet.  Life would be simpler if there were, but also probably more boring…we aim to support you in sorting out what food mix works best for you in support of your health goals that fits into your life.
