ABOUT NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

Can you imagine how it would be to have optimal health and vitality, abundant energy, while being your ideal weight?

The aim of The Well Life Lab is to assist you in achieving your health goals. Our goal is to educate and inspire you to take responsibility for your own health.

 

Nutritional therapy can help us get to the bottom of our health concerns by addressing the root cause of illness or 'unwell-ness'.

This can be achieved by assessing nutritional balance and lifestyle, and supporting the body towards optimal health.

 

Personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes are recommended as opposed to a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Functional medicine principles are applied, which entails addressing the body as a whole, instead of looking at a set of isolated symptoms. 

Modern research is showing us that good health begins in the gut, and it was over 2000 years ago that the Greek philosopher Hippocrates said “all disease begins in the gut”. 

 

This statement is still very relevant today, unfortunately, the modern world that we live in exposes us to an increasing number of factors which compromise the optimal balance of beneficial bacteria in our guts (known as the microbiome). These factors include medications (especially antibiotics); dietary factors; toxin exposure, and stress.

 

Studies are showing us that having a healthy microbiome is key to a healthy life. Many of the chronic diseases, so prevalent in today’s world, can be prevented by addressing the underlying causes of poor health, and in most cases, this means 

addressing our diet. 

Who can benefit from Nutritional Therapy?

 

Nutritional therapy is relevant for anyone wishing to optimise their health and well-being, and also for those living with chronic health conditions.

 

If you experience:

  • Digestive complaints

  • Chronic pain

  • Skin conditions

  • Fatigue

  • Excessive stress

  • Insomnia

  • or any other health condition or symptoms

Nutritional therapy is relevant if you:

  • are trying to manage your weight

  • are planning a family, are pregnant, or breastfeeding, or approaching the menopause, or even post menopause

  • would like to support your health and well-being now and for the future

 “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”  

~Hippocrates
