Nutritional Therapy is a dynamic holistic therapy. Holistic nutrition is going to look at the full picture, yes a big part will be nutrition but there is also an emphasis on the other aspects of your life. How is stress affecting you how can we learn to manage it? Where are you at with exercising? What do you do for fun? What makes you laugh, love and live?

We will educate, guide and support people as they adopt healthier eating and lifestyle habits. We will advise and encourage people as they explore better food choices and start to enjoy the benefits. It is great to see clients start to develop the awareness, knowledge and skills to make more conscious and better informed choices around food, exercise and lifestyle for the benefit of their own and family’s well-being.

Women’s Nutrition

Many health problems that women face throughout their lives are due to too much stress, hormonal imbalances, an unhealthy diet, lack of exercise and poor lifestyle choices. Isn’t it time to take care of yourself, so that you will feel more vibrant, full of life and a general sense of wellbeing. When is the last time you woke up feeling good from the moment you got up to when you went to bed, the feeling that life is good, that you can cope, and that you have the energy and stamina to deal with your day?

Maybe you would like to go on a detox programme as you are just back from a holiday where there was plenty of indulgence. Or after Christmas you need a good detox regime for the body.

Men’s Nutrition

There are a number of health issues that affect men at different stages of their lives and contrary to belief it’s never too late to help yourself. From boys in their teens having acne, to older men eating the wrong foods thus increasing the risks of obesity, inflammation, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Stress is also a big factor which can cause a number of health concerns if prolonged. As men get older signs can start to show if they haven’t been taking care of themselves.

Maybe now they aren’t playing sports as they used to. Men need the correct nutrients that can help them maintain immune function, bone density, prevent muscle loss, and oxidative damage from the environment. We have to look at providing an overall healthy lifestyle including getting regular physical activity. The body needs a regular consumption of a good healthy diet, rich in a variety of essential nutrients.

Children’s Nutrition

All parents want to see their children happy and healthy. One of the single most important things you can do for your child is to give them optimum nutrition. Starting early encourages good eating habits in later life.

There are so many fun ways you can encourage your kids to eat healthy. Bring them to your local food market and get them to choose some healthy foods. Then when you go home get them to help you cook the food-you will be amazed on how interested they will be in eating it. The farmers market is a great place to go with the whole family and gives an opportunity to learn about nutrition. You will also be able to eat foods that are in season and support local farmers.

Sports Nutrition

Being successful at sport depends on a number of different factors. The food we eat can directly affect our performance. Exercise is great and in general can improve bone density, sleep, depression and decreases body fat. Many of the principles of a good healthy eating plan can be applied to sports nutrition.

The key additional element is adjusting these to achieve maximum performance. The requirements will vary from person to person depending on the type, intensity and frequency of sport or exercise you do. Here at Nutrition4Living we will tailor your nutritional needs to the needs of your training programme.
