The Basic Therapeutic Diet

So giving the body the vitamins and minerals it needs to keep us happy and healthy is crucial.  And the old addage of “5 a day” should be more like 10 a day for us to even get a proportion of the nutrients our bodies need for optimum health.

There are so many diets out there today and it can be confusing when trying to decide which one is the best one for your health.  I take an individualised approach, looking at a person’s case history, symptoms and their genetic make-up, as there is no one diet out there that is right for everyone.

The Basic Therapeutic Diet looks at using foods and fluids to hydrate the body and reduce inflammation.  It also looks about how we can maximise your nutrient intake through the foods you eat by adding nutrient dense foods in. The aim is not to restrict, but to find alternatives to inflammatory or harmful foods that you may be eating.  Once you have transitioned onto the Basic Therapeutic Diet, we can then explore how to use food and fluids to detoxify.  This is when people can start to see a real shift in the level of their symptoms.

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring!  We look together at the things you like to eat and draw up some ideas from there.  I can provide recipes and meal plans where required too.  I know from my own personal experience how stressful and demotivating being given a list of foods you can’t eat without alternatives or ideas can be.

So contact me today to book a free 15 minute consultation to find out how you can incorporate a healthy eating plan that is individualised to you into a structured health and wellbeing programme.
