Mandy Nott –Naturopathy and Holistic Nutrition in Belconnen, Canberra
Hi, I’m Mandy and I offer Naturopathy and Holisitic Nutrition in Belconnen, Canberra. So, what does that mean? That means that I work with nature’s resources to bring about healing and cleaner living for my clients.
Firstly, I follow the principles of Naturopathy to help me understand what my client’s health ailments are; and then I prescribe a tailored blend of herbs, and any nutritional supplements required, to assist my clients with their healing and recovery; and finally, I work with my clients to create a diet and lifestyle plan, based on the principles of Holistic Nutrition, that will bring them greater health, energy and wellbeing.
For me, personally, the Holistic Nutrition component is crucial. So many people are feeling unwell because of what they are eating. One of my main goals, as a Naturopath, is to help my clients have a greater understanding of the principles of nutrition and healthy, balanced eating.
What is Holistic Nutrition?
The classical Greek physician Hippocrates famously said: “let food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” These days, we say ‘we are what we eat’.
Whichever you use, the premise is the same – eating healthy, nutritious food will have you feeling healthy and well. It is this belief that forms that foundation of Holistic Nutrition – a complete way of improving physical, emotional and spiritual health through diet, that combines ancient wisdom with modern knowledge.
As more and more people realise the healing power of food, Holistic Nutrition is gaining popularity, influencing lives in a positive way and encouraging healing naturally.
How can Holistic Nutrition Heal the Body?
Modern medicine often aims to cure aliments through the use of pills, compounds or surgery. In contrast, Holistic Nutrition seeks to improve health through introducing a diet rich in natural foods and cleansing liquids.
A holistic diet includes foods like organic vegetables, whole grains, fruits, nuts, fish, beans and seeds.
The body’s immune system, and ability to repair itself, is linked to nutrition; and by improving what you eat, you can encourage greater healing as well as helping to prevent ailments developing.
The Health Benefits of Nutrition
Holistic Nutrition has many health benefits, including: a strong and balanced gut; healthier skin; higher energy levels; and control of weight.
One of the greatest benefits, however, is finding mental and spiritual balance. Because so many ailments are linked to emotional stresses like anger or worry, by improving the diet you can improve the mood. This in turn helps people to cope and even master problems that come their way – making them happier and more able to live well.
How Can Holistic Nutrition help with Chronic Illness?
Holistic Nutrition has many benefits for those that suffer from chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and arthritis. There are also benefits for those who are managing heart conditions, living with asthma, or dealing with cancer and the growth of tumours.
Many studies have shown that processed foods can increase the risk of disease. By eliminating processed foods, and following a diet based on the principles of Holistic Nutrition, you can achieve the proper balance of vitamins, proteins and other nutrients to achieve a peak of health and energy.
