What Is Nutritional Therapy?
At the Body Clinic we have a very dedicated and experienced nutritional therapist working with us, Lotty Sykes.
Nutritional medicine involves the use of vitamin and mineral supplements in combination with diet to gain optimum health. There are a whole series of trace elements such as zinc, magnesium and chromium and a number of vitamins which, if deficient, can lead to disease.
Dietary recommendations made by most Western governments tend to be more focused on the specific intakes that avoid deficiency (RDI) rather than those which promote optimal health. We believe that good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are central to fertility and to improving each stage of reproduction.
What Is The Treatment?
During your consultation, Lotty will look at your individual diet to ascertain your current balance of nutrients. Through individual tailoring of your diet and nutritional supplements we will work together to obtain the right balance of nutrients for you.
