Why is nutrition essential to our health & wellbeing?
The area of health and nutrition is incredibly vast, it can be confusing to know which foods groups, nutrients and specific diets are best for our individual health needs. We each lead different lifestyles and are exposed to a variety of environmental stressors, toxins as well as different day to day physical and emotional demands in life. Our diets therefore need to be tailored in a personalised way to suit our unique makeup. Imbalances in our nutritional needs, whereby we may be consuming too much or too little of certain nutrients from food, can manifest in many different ways. Changes within our body can develop affecting our physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, leaving us vulnerable to illness. If you are not putting the correct fuel into the cells of your body to enable you to feel rested after sleep, to have balanced energy and alertness during the day, and generally looking and feeling your best, this imbalance over time can create problems. What may start with low grade fatigue, a little joint pain, or stomach discomfort now and again, if left untreated, may become chronic, leading to more serious health conditions down the line. The right nutrition can be a very powerful tool, providing the body with natural defences to fight off disease, heal itself and feel a sense of overall wellness.
