What is Nutritional Medicine Anyhow?
Put simply it integrates science and principles of natural medicine into a distinct approach to nutritional practice.
Nutritional Medicine examines disturbances in body chemistry caused by nutritional imbalances, resulting from improper diet, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal dysfunction, inflammation and environmental toxic agents, that contribute to the patient's illness. Once identified, nutritional balance can be restored with a diet based on whole, natural foods, that are seasonal and organic (where possible), and are integrated with ongoing treatment and education.
The practice of nutritional medicine may employ the use of:
Behavioural and lifestyle counselling
Diet therapy with consideration to nutrient interactions
Food preparation and medicinal cooking
Therapeutic application of foods with specific functions
Digestive function and efficiency
Prescription of nutritional supplements
Analysis of drug-nutrient interactions
