Everyone accepts that a balanced diet is important for good health. What most people don't realise is that different people at different stages in their lives need different diets.
As part of a holistic approach to healthcare, an optimum nutritional intake ensures that the building blocks of health are available.The complementary medicines like homeopathy and acupuncture can be seen as making sure the building blocks are put in the right place, or that the architect’s plan is correct, However, you do need good quality material which a well-planned diet and supplementation programme can provide. Some patients benefit from nutritional review to stay healthy, particularly at times of change – as in pregnancy or with ageing. Other patients use a nutritional approach as an adjunct to other therapies when they have a particular health problem.
