Nutritional therapy: a healthy, specific diet
If you ask anyone about the meaning
of nutrition, the answer, without any hesitation, is going to be food. Could
this one word describe all the nutrition we may need for our daily life, are we
really in deep need for a nutritional therapist and what do they do?
Nutrition is a science, not just a
word describing food as it studies the correlation between the diet the person
may intake and how healthy this person is. In other words, nutrition is what
you eat to keep you healthy. Sometimes, all what we need for greater life and
health is only the right diet. Such diet may even help preventing diseases such
as diabetes so, having unhealthy diet may reflect badly on our lives, in the long
term, without even noticing that slight negative effect such unhealthy diet may
produce day after day so, is nutrition important? Yes, but anyone can eat healthy
food and avoid the troubles of the unhealthy diet one may follow. If it is so
easy, why don’t we do it ourselves? As every human being differs from one another,
this may lead to a great difference in the nutritional process of each so,
every person needs a particular type of nutrition. This may lead us to the term
of “nutritional therapy”.
Nutritional therapy is a
consultation therapy done by a nutritional therapist, asking some lifestyle
questions, in order to allow him to choose the right diet for everyone but do
you have to be a patient to need the help of a nutritional therapist? No,
anyone can benefit from the consultation of a nutritional therapist, just like
anything in life, you can fix what is broken or you can prevent it from being
broken from the beginning. Nutritional therapy can help you prevent diseases,
maintaining a good state of health, by a good healthy nutritious diet by just
telling your therapist the symptoms you may suffer from, without any side
effects form this prescription, if you want to call it one. So, who is a
nutritional therapist? And is he qualified for helping patients?
The nutritional therapist is a personnel
with a 3 year diploma in nutritional therapy, studying physiology, biochemistry
and pathology with a high training of medical practice which makes him more
than qualified for the outpatient clinics and trained to meet patients and help
them, either in one to one consultations or in groups.
After all, we don’t just need food
to fill our stomachs whenever we are hungry, however, it is more than this. Food
is the energy that helps us grow and keep healthy. So, a healthy diet is all
what we need for a healthy life, preventing diseases. And all of this may be
true with the help of a nutritional therapist that will choose the right diet
for you during a consultation called nutritional therapy. Is it obvious now that
all we need is the right diet??
