It promotes the benefits of good, wholesome, unprocessed foods for optimal well being, as well as the therapeutic effects of particular foods for specific health conditions. Nutritional Therapy can help everyone both young and old. Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body.
