We are very pleased to announce Nutritional Therapist, Lenka Freharova will be joining us here at The Core Zone from September.
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Wide range of tools is used to asses and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows the therapists to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Nutritional Therapy treats the body as a whole while seeking the root cause of health concerns, rather than simply treating the symptoms. It promotes the benefits of good, wholesome, unprocessed foods, supplements and changes to lifestyle to promote optimum health. This therapy works in synergy with your body, ensuring that you have all the nutrients needed to support your natural healing mechanisms.
Nutritional Therapy can help you understand how your existing diet may be impacting your well-being.
It will teach you how to nourish your mind and body by understanding the nutrients you need – specific to your lifestyle or health conditions.
