Nutritionists and natural health practitioners assist patients, friends and family to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle, and to restore their energy and wellbeing, through good healthy nutrition. Nutrition feeds the body, mind and spiritual wellbeing. Adequate nutrition can assist in the recovery from minor or major health conditions, from recurrent colds to chronic diseases, and establish the foundation of healthy fulfilled and meaningful lives.
