WHY NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Scientific research continually reveal that our body function is significantly affected by what we eat; so much so that it is becoming common practice for people to turn to prevention by nutritional therapy to help manage a wide array of complications, or to simply improve the way they look and feel.
Today’s obesity levels are more than three times what they were in 1980, when only 6% of men and 8% of women were obese. Being overweight or obese increases the risk of a many serious illnesses, such as type II diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, as well as cancer.
Compared with a healthy weight man, an obese man is:
- five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes
- three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon
- more than two and a half times more likely to develop high blood pressure – a major risk factor for stroke and heart disease
An obese woman, compared with a healthy weight woman, is:
- almost 13 times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes
- more than four times more likely to develop high blood pressure
- more than three times more likely to have a heart attack
The best way to lose weight is to combine a healthy, reduced-calorie diet with regular exercise. A physical activity approach alone isn’t recommended.
The objective of Nutritionist team of HB PHYSIO is to work to identify what imbalance or dysfunction is at the heart of a specific health condition and manage it in a sustainable way.
Our Nutritionist has helped countless individuals make changes to their diet and lifestyle to achieve personal goals or, in many cases, address various health issues which have been shown to be influenced by nutrition.
At The HB PHYSIO we address the root cause of your health issues, not just the symptoms, and help you achieve your true health potential. By taking a comprehensive health and lifestyle history and coupling that with the results of body composition assessment we tailor a specific programme just for you focusing on diet, sleep, stress reduction, exercise and supplement support.
At the HB PHYSIO we are experts in getting people to lose weight healthily and we say healthily, we mean getting people healthy first before they lose the weight as health has to come before weight loss.
Are you ready to discover your unique personal diet to reclaim the health you deserve?
Personal nutrition advice takes into account that although the genes play important roles of health and illness, many chronic illnesses that have been shown to have a genetic basis are mostly triggered by diet and lifestyle choices. Nowhere is this more evident than in today’s major health problems of cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity and arthritis. There is a vast of study that has shown the correct diet, lifestyle and nutritional medicine can prevent these from any further complications.
Conventional medicine does not allow much time with clients: the average ‘consultation’ with a Family Physician is 5 minutes. This provides no ability to address the reasons why the patient has arrived at their state of illness. Using the functional nutrition model make us able to take enough time to listen to patient’s health history and provide personal nutrition advice. On top of this we also make comprehensive lifestyle recommendations.
