What is Nutritional Therapy?
"The preservation of health is easier than the cure of the disease"
The British Association For Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine, BANT, defines Nutritional Therapy as the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual self-care.
We are all biochemically individual therefore there can be no 'one size fits all' approach to illness and disease.
There are no quick fixes with pharmaceutical drugs, no miracle 'cures'.
The environment we live in is more polluted than ever. We are exposed to stressors from toxins in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the homes we live in.
And this is having a massive toll on our wellbeing and longevity.
We are living longer now than ever before but we are 'sicker' than ever
(with death from dementia, Alzheimer's Disease and liver disease in males and females taking over death by stroke and lung cancer).
The underlying principles of Naturopathic Medicine allows me as a therapist to analyse each individual clients case by seeking answers:
What are the underlying causes of the symptoms?
How is the body dealing with these symptoms?
What interventions are needed to support self-healing?
How can I educate my client to understand why they are ill or living with undiagnosed disease and sub-optimal health?
My top three Values are Honesty, Kindness and Reliability.
I am also empathetic and a good listener and I truly want to inspire people to achieve better health.
Work with me and allow me to create an individualised diet and lifestyle protocol for you, supporting body and mind and inspiring you live your life with vitality and energy.
In good health,
Patricia Alexander-Bird, BSc, Dip NT, mBANT, CNHC.
