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.

  • My heart goes out to all Australians facing devastating fires. If you can help, donate to the Red Cross, RFS or WIRES.
  • What a year, farewell 2019, looking forward to all good things in 2020 🥳 Happy New Year!
  • My poor lungs...! Ugh I’m still sick. 
So the next solution (I forgot all these magical remedies when I’m sick) is 3 or 4 garlic cloves, crushed and infused in oil. Olive or coconut oil will do. 
Rub the oil on the soles of the feet and wrap them up in socks. An oldie but a goodie 🧙🏼‍♀️

  • 🙋🏼‍♀️ my next few weeks. Today’s my last day in the clinic until the New Year. 
It’s been... different to return to work after having a little baby! It’s been stressful - does my brain still work?! Wonderful - being back in my element and helping people. Challenging - getting my work mojo back, sticking to times and pumping milk between clients.

But it’s been so good to be back and helping people get healthy!

I’ll be taking some time off, resting, playing and having family time to return January 13
Looking forward to 2020 ❣️ #holisticliving #holistichealth #holisticwellness #balance #naturopath #wellnessclinic #holisticlifestyle #healthmatters #wellnessjourney #mindbodyspirit
  • 🥦🥒🥬🍏🥝🥬🥒
Greens are a great for detoxing, reducing inflammation and supporting healthy digestion. 
Leafy green vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet. Leafy greens including kale, spinach, arugula, and chard are the undeniable superstars of the food world. Low in calories, yet high in fiber, vitamins, and phytonutrients, greens are incredible for your health in more ways than you would even suspect.

Whether in whole food form, smoothies, or organic greens powders, greens have the power to make you look and feel younger, and can even support healthy aging. 🥦Improve Inflammatory Response
Though this may be a no-brainer, I want to re-emphasize how important it is to support a healthy inflammatory response in order to protect yourself from a battery of chronic illnesses. Leafy greens contain antioxidants and polyphenols, the disease-fighting compounds found in plant foods. 🥬Greens are expert detoxifiers, thanks to chlorophyll–the pigment that makes greens…green! Chlorophyll-rich foods such as spirulina, chlorella, parsley, and alfalfa bind to heavy metals and toxins in your blood and carry them out of your body. Chlorophyll also helps cleanse your liver to support your body’s natural ability to detox.  #holisticwellness #holisticliving #holistichealth #healthmatters #acne #clearskin #skin #fitlife #wellness #nutrition #health #acntreatment #skinhealth #iamwellandgood #mindbodygreen #mindfulliving #holisticlifestyle #intuitiveliving #mindbodyspirit #holisticmedicine #naturalhealth #healthyhappylife #greenlifestyle #organiclifestyle #pimple #pimleprevention #skincare #breakouts #womenshealth #beauty
  • Clay the emergency fix 🚨 for angry breakouts 
Christmas time often equates to later nights, alcohol and diets that are a little off track. It only happens once a year so let’s not feel too guilty. 
But what to do when giant mountainous eruptions break through!?
1) relax
2) ensure you are hydrated 
3) keep up the fiber to get things moving 
4) topical green clay to draw out, reduce inflammation and speed up healing 
5) moisturize with lavender and frankincense in a carrier cream

White clay is all I has :/ Benefits of Green Clay💚
For oily, combination and acne-prone skin, Green Clay is ideal for restoring balance. Green Clay works overtime to soak up the excess oils that clog the pores and lead to acne and imperfections, plus it doubles as a powerful deep cleanser that helps to balance pH levels. One of my favourite qualities of Green Clay is that it stimulates cell regeneration to leave you with a seriously glowing complexion.  #cleanliving #greenlifestyle #healthmatters #healthyhappylife #holistichealth #holisticlifestyle #holisticliving #holisticmedicine #acne #clearskin #skin #pimple #pimleprevention #foodforhealth #skincare #breakouts #womenshealth #beauty
