" The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well. Our food should be our medicine. Our medicine should be our food ". Hippocrates
What is nutritional therapy? how can it help?
In the holistic world, we believe that the body constantly thrives to be in a healthy state and that each being has a self-healing power that one can activate by putting the body in the right conditions.
Generally speaking, elements such as the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, where we live, the rest we get, and our posture or relationships can all impact our health in a negative or positive way.
Nutrition is one of the core aspects of nutritional therapy as the body uses the nutrients we eat to make itself, activate metabolic functions, and generate energy production.
Moreover, it is important to add that beyond what we eat, we are what we absorb hence the importance of having a healthy and optimally working digestive system.
Unfortunately, the mass production of industrial foods combined with other problematic factors (artificial lights, stress, toxins, etc.) is highly contributing to the numerous chronic diseases and symptoms we observe & experience today.
