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 top oils when it comes to break outs! 
When your skin is red, hot, inflamed and sore. 🌷Lavender oil works to kill bacteria, and this can prevent and heal acne breakouts. It unclogs pores and reduces inflammation when you put it on your skin. 🌷 Frankincense known as the king of essential oils, in ancient times frankincense was considered to be one of the most valuable commodities. ... Frankincense will soothe and reduce inflammation and can also help prevent acne forming thanks to the boswellic acids it contains which are capable of killing bacteria associated with acne.

Wash your face in warm water, a drop of each oil in a plain moisturizer - like QV, massage gently into your face before bed.

At all costs do not pick! The last thing you want is scarring. .

  • Omega-7 fatty acids are unsaturated fatty acids found in certain fish, like salmon and anchovy, and oils such as olive oil, macadamia oil, and sea buckthorn oil.
Omega 7 is also vital for healthy hair, skin and nails. It works to control free-radicals and to reduce inflammation in the skin, thus helping to control and reduce acne breakouts. Consuming Omega 7, either through your regular diet, or by supplementation can have very positive effects on skin condition such as acne.

I like to use this topically. ⠀⠀
Use 20ml sea buckthorn with a drop of lavender and a drop of frankincense, massage over affected area after a shower, before bed. ⠀⠀ #fitlife #holisticliving #holistichealth #holisticwellness #wellness #healthmatters #nutrition #health #acne #acntreatment #skin #skinhealth #clearskin
  • Post pill acne.... 🏔🏔🌋🏔 generally erupts 2+ months after coming off the oral contraceptive pill. 
And at its worse from 3-6months, just when most women have had enough, they jump back on the pill - not addressing the root cause. ⠀⠀
Post pill acne is often made worse by certain types of pill... Diane, Yasmin; we find after suppressing the hormones, a surge will happen as the hormones bounce back into action. The androgen hormones in particular. A good way to help the phase pass with ease; a clean diet, water and sweating. But also zinc, to help reduce androgen hormones and heal the skin. Best taken for a few months at night, right before bed to maximize absorption. Lx .

  • When it comes to skin care.. there is a huge amount of fad products; often expensive and ineffective. ⠀⠀
There are some simple things you do at home to help improve your skin. One thing I love is a good green juice. When we want to improve our skin, think fiber, vitamin c and antioxidants. ⠀⠀
Try this;
Slice of ginger (anti inflammatory)
Apples (prebiotic)
Coconut water (hydrating)
Blueberries (antioxidants) 
Mint for taste ⠀⠀
I do like a dash of cinnamon for healthy blood sugar levels and also some protein powder. Try this for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. Taking the burden off digestion with something light and loaded with nutrients will help support healthy skin. 💁🏽‍♀️. #eatclean #eatwell #eattherainbow #eeeeeats #foodart #forkfeed #healthydiet #healthyeating #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #healthymeal #plantbased #cleanliving #greenlifestyle #healthmatters #healthyhappylife
  • 🥝Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of ALL body tissues.

🍓🥬🌶🥦🍒🥝 I’m seeing more women present with post pill acne. Escaping acne in your teens only to have outbreaks in your 20-30’s. 🥝First we look at balancing the hormones, getting healthy periods and reducing outbreaks. But also helping to heal the skin and reduce the chance of scaring. Vitamin C can help reduce scaring; the best place to start is the diet but with severe acne and a tendency of scarring, consider a supplement. Chat to your naturopath first to see if this is good for you 👩🏼‍💼🌱
