The link between nutrition and health may seem obvious, but our present-day food culture presents us with an overwhelming amount of choice and often conflicting advice when it comes to diets and the nutritional benefits or dangers of particular foods. In addition, the medicinal value of certain foods, drinks, herbs and spices are often overlooked, even though they may have played an important role in healing illness for thousands of years. A nutritionist can assess your diet and suggest changes to treat a range of issues including digestive, skin and hormonal problems, poor immunity, women's and men's health issues, as well as intolerances. They can also create healthy eating plans and give advice and support on creating meals that support rather than undermine your wellbeing. Some nutritionists will also advise on the use of food supplements to promote specific aspects of your health.
