Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition is the science of food, the nutrients in foods and how the body uses those nutrients. It includes the process of ingestion, digestion, absorption, metabolism, transport, storage and excretion of those nutrients

It is more than just food

It also includes the environmental, psychological and behavioral aspects of food and eating. The six classes of nutrients include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water.

Today we have identified compounds in plant foods called phytochemicals. Although not technically identified as a nutrient, these compounds have been associated with a variety of health benefits when consumed as part of a balanced diet. Examples of phytochemicals include lycopene in tomatoes, isoflavonoids in soybeans and capsaicin in capsicum. Research of these compounds is showing phytochemical is an important part of a healthy diet.

Good nutrition throughout life

Nutrition principles are applied throughout the life cycle from the time of conception to our later years. Areas of nutrition emphasis include pregnancy, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and the ‘older’ adult. The relationship between diet and health is strong. Diet is a crucial factor in heart disease, stroke, hypertension, cancer, diabetes mellitus, and obesity. Nutrition is offered alongside services like herbal medicine.

  • (Sensible) sun buddies. Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin 🌞

When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes vitamin D from cholesterol. The sun's ultraviolet B (UVB) rays hit cholesterol in the skin cells, providing the energy for vitamin D synthesis to occur.

The best time to get the good rays is before 10am or after 3pm for 10-15mins. 
An experiment with 3 groups each had either sunshine, Vit D supplement and oily fish, found all groups had their vitamin D increase around the same amount. 
Vitamin D is crucial to a healthy immune system with majority of us deficient to a certain degree. 
The sun is free, just be careful you don’t over do it!

  • The Acne Face Map👩. The acne face map originates from Chinese/Ayurvedic medicine theory. 👉So often your skin will break out in certain areas on your face and those areas are sometimes related to certain organ systems in your body. 
Sometimes your acne is actually telling you that there are certain imbalances from within that you need to address.

  • You know what’s better than a bucket load of supplements...? eating a rainbow 
You may have read how important vitamin C is for a healthy immune. With most suppliers sold out... orange trees are still producing fruit 🍋🍊🍒🥝 and although toilet paper is fairly scarce you can still get your hands on a heap of fresh produce.

Vitamin C is found in citrus, capsicum, kale, kiwi’s and cherries to name a few. 
Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system.
