Nutritional Medicine

Nutritional Medicine takes an all-inclusive approach to the interactions of both nutrition and environment on human health. It is a known fact that nutrients are the body building blocks. Hence, when the body gets the correct nutrient balance, it remains healthy. Every human is unique in terms of genetics, anatomy, metabolism, and biochemistry. So also, our internal system differs in gut flora, the integrity of the intestinal wall and the immune system. All these affect the ability of our body to process foods, absorb nutrients, detoxify and expel wastes.

Assessing nutritional status include evaluating exposure to toxicity from heavy metals, fertilisers, pesticides, synthetic chemicals including pharmaceutical and recreational drugs. More so, food additives, flavourings and colourings or particular foods themselves may lead to sensitivities, allergies and intolerances.

By living an optimally healthy lifestyle, the body is provided with the best conditions to avoid as well as heal from disease states. And living optimal life comes by improving our diet by consuming more fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and also drinking lots of filtered water is a good start.


What a Nutritional Medicine practitioner does is to provide you with dietary advice as well as prescribe nutritional supplements that can help in a broad range of health conditions.


Nutritional Medicine can assist in handling a wide range of health issues, such as:

  • Poor immunity to high cholesterol,
  • Issues with pregnancy, breastfeeding or menopause,
