Nutrition therapy or nutritional therapy is at the heart of what we do. Nutriscope provide the very best nutrition therapy in London. When something's not working quite as well as we'd like, it's just common sense to evaluate whether there's a spanner in the works preventing it from working properly and/or if it has everything it requires to work optimally.
WE ARE ALL UNIQUE
Unless someone has met you or otherwise spent time assessing you, there is no way they can give you tailored nutritional advice. It is impossible to give sweeping one size fits all nutritional recommendations that would benefit everyone. We are all unique. Our faces, DNA and our chemistry differ to the next person's, sometimes quite dramatically. One person’s need for a particular nutrient may be 20 times higher than another’s. Our needs vary depending on our genetics, sex, size, constitution, our upbringing, our life time exposure to toxins and other stresses, our current psychological environment, how much we exercise, how stressed we are, our age, whether we are ill, our current exposure to pollution, etc, etc…
One of the key differences between a nutritional therapist and a dietitian is a nutritionist endevours to assess your needs on an individual basis. Whereas a dietitian is likely to only give advice in keeping with current government guidelines, a nutritionist may incorporate clinical experience, critical thinking and findings of certain research relevant to a particular client to formulate recommendations geared to maximise health.
WHO ARE THE EXPERTS?
When it comes It always important to get an idea of how much training and what sort of training our "experts" have had. This goes for many otherwise very accomplished health professionals. Others are often tied in with the food industry or industries that make very huge profits from a large proportion of us becoming and remaining ill. Most importantly, however, how do they know?
Our food has changed dramatically over the last few hundred years, with the biggest changes taking place over the last 60 years. Some reasons for this include:
• The overprocessing, refining and denaturing of foods.
• Depleted minerals in the soil, due to intensive farming since Worl War 2.
• Premature harvesting, long transits and storage, which all reduce nutrient levels in our fruit & veg. A shop bought orange may contain anywhere from 80 to 0 milligrams of vitamin C.
• Modern animal rearing techniques & feed mean that even the “low fat” chicken may have many times more fat than the olden day chicken and this fat contains far more damaging fats, & far less of the beneficial types of fat.
There’s more but you get the picture!
Even if we ate organic wholefoods, we may still only be getting a fraction of the nutrients that our ancestors would have gotten from the same foods. On top of this our bodies need to process pesticides and thousands of other man-made pollutants in our air, water, food, personal hygiene products & many other house hold products. Such chemicals, also increase our nutrient requirements so that we can defend and detoxify ourselves.
Nutrition therapy in London will always be geared more towards the frantic pace of life that is part of London life. We will work with you to provide nutritional therapy that works for your sepcific circumstances.
