Clinical Nutrition and Acupuncture is an holistic, patient centred approach, combining research based Clinical Nutrition and ancient Chinese Medicine. Your therapist will look at the underlying disease and the biomechanics in each individual, using ancient techniques such as pulse and also modern diagnostic tools. It aims to determine the root cause of your health concerns, be it hormonal, digestive, or emotional.
In many instances there is often a biological imbalance that can be corrected with targeted interventions, such as dietary alterations, vitamin and nutrient supplementation, Chinese Herbal medicine, Acupuncture and relative lifestyle advice.
During the session the practitioner look at the individuals specific health concerns and any imbalances they may have, including nutrient deficiency, poor diet, sleep disturbances, exposure to environmental pollutants, such as heavy metals and hormone disrupting plastics. Using tailored techniques they will aim to rectify these problems, which can cause illness and disruptions to all the systems including the endocrine system.
Many people suffer from conditions such as fatigue, weight gain, mood imbalances, a suppressed immune system, digestive complaints; to name a few. Stress has also been shown to have significant impacts on these health concerns. Stress may have a negative effect on our adrenal function, influencing our physical, mental, psychological and even spiritual sense of wellbeing.
In combination, Clinical Nutrition and Acupuncture can be effective for relieving stress and working with digestive, hormonal, energy and mood related issues as well as general health concerns.
