Nutrition

Nutrition is the relationship of foods to the health of the body. Good nutrition means that all the essential nutrients: carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals and water are supplied and utilised in adequate balance to maintain optimal health and well -being.

Good nutrition is essential for:

  1. normal organ function                                           

  2. normal reproduction

  3. resistance to infection and disease

  4. facilitating repair following injury


We all need the same essential nutrients, however, our individual requirements are influenced by a range of factors such as:

  1. our age and gender

  2. diet

  3. body volume

  4. health status/illness,

  5. activity level and lifestyle.


It is important to remember that good nutrition is more than just supplying the body with good fuel, as the foods eaten by humans are chemically complex and need to be broken down into simpler forms (nutrients) which can be absorbed and transported to the cells. An efficient digestive system that processes and metabolises effectively is essential to good health and well -being.

When the system is disrupted by illness or trauma, its ability to function effectively is diminished, leading to digestive or absorption abnormalities and metabolic irregularities which can result in deficiencies of essential nutrients and lead to illness and disease.

At such times a therapist may recommend supplements to assist repair, re-establish intestinal flora balance and generally support the client as they progressively retain their original health and well-being.
