Did you know that over 80% of your immune system is in your gut? Or that immune system dysregulation or anaemia can stop you from losing weight? Or that getting into remission from an autoimmune disease may be prevented by cross-reactions to specific foods, chemicals or pathogens? Or that depression, dementia, anxiety or ADHD symptoms can often be significantly improved or corrected with nutrition and herbal medicine?
Food is the primary source of fuel for your body. The foods you consume, after being broken down, actually make up the chemical structure of your body tissues. The quality of fuel (food) you consume, the breakdown into individual nutrients and assimilation through the body’s ‘metabolic engine’, can influence your overall health and how well your body functions and resists infections and disease.
In the Western society, we seem to put up with ‘Adequate Health’. A state of ‘imperfect’ health where we don’t suffer with any serious illness, but yet put up with niggling, repetitive, regular symptoms of different conditions. Symptoms can present as headaches, arthritic pain, skin conditions (acne, eczema, dermatitis), digestive complaints (bloating, constipation, diarrhoea), menstrual symptoms (water retention, abdominal or back pain, menstrual migraines, PMT), menopausal symptoms, anxiety, depression, food intolerances, and the list goes on. And, of course, many of us spend way too much time worrying about our weight or spending way too much money on fad diets which always disappoint.
Using a Naturopathic Approach to Nutrition, Maya can help gradually bring you out of a state of established disease or ‘Adequate Health’ towards a healthier, more balanced state of ‘Optimal Health’. You will learn how to achieve, enjoy and most importantly, maintain continuous health.
