Clinical nutrition is the cornerstone of Naturopathic Therapy. It refers to the use of food as medicine. A balanced diet with the correct amount of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants is essential for your body to stay healthy. Clinical nutrition is used to identify any nutrient deficiencies, excesses and food allergies. Food and nutritional supplements are used to prevent and treat illness and also to achieve optimal health.
Plant substances have been used as powerful medicine for ages, long before the development of synthetic pharmaceuticals. Botanical medicine can be used in a variety of forms such as tinctures, capsules, essential oils, and teas. When selected appropriately, botanical medicine offers an effective approach to healing with few side effects.

Learn tools for living a healthy life, protecting yourself against the harmful effects of stress, and preventing minor illnesses from turning into more serious, chronic degenerative diseases.
