Nutrition is the intake and metabolism of food and specific nutrients, considered in relation to your body’s individual needs. And Clinical Nutrition is the science of nutrients and how they are digested, absorbed, transported, metabolized, stored, and eliminated by the body.
Depending on your stage of life, existing health conditions and digestive abilities, the nutritional need differs from person to person. Contrary to what the media would sometimes have you believe, there is not one diet that suits everyone!
Underlying nutritional deficiencies, biochemical imbalances or food intolerances can lead to a wide range of symptoms and can be addressed with a Personalised Nutritional Prescription.
