Why A Nutritionist > Nutrition Versus Conventional Medicine
Nutrition Versus Conventional Medicine

Conventional medicine is essential for our well-being and saving lives, however where it fails is in prevention.

Conventional medicine tends to treat the symptoms instead of getting to the cause of the condition, which triggered these symptoms in the first place.

E.g. a person may be suffering from headaches, bloating and skin problems to which a doctor may prescribe painkillers for the headaches, laxatives for constipation and steroid cream for the skin. Once you stop taking the prescribed drug the problem returns!

As a naturopathic nutritionist using the functional medicine approach, we treat the trigger. E.g. it could be the digestive system isn't performing correctly and has become sluggish.The resulting constipation would cause a collection of toxins that could be causing the underlying headaches and skin issues.

There are many health problems; however most are triggered by the same mechanisms

  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • External and internal stress
  • Hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances
  • Free radical damage & inflammation,
  • Toxins & poor detoxification
  • Poor digestive disorder or microbiological imbalances
  • Immune imbalances and microbes or viral infections.
  • Structural imbalances  from cellular membrane structure to the musculoskeletal system

Our job is to find the trigger, rebalance the cells functions so optimal health is achieved and then sustain maintenance of well-being.
