Nutrition therapy is the therapeutic approach of treating the disease condition by adopting healthy tailored diet under the supervision of a registered dietician, nutritionist or a physician. Nutrition therapy helps in restoring balance and vitality of an individual. Nutrition therapy is an evidence-based approach to maximize one’s health potential via adopting suitable nutritional and lifestyle changes. The major advantage of adopting nutrition therapy is that it treats the body from the root source of illness and not only the symptoms. Nutrition therapy is helpful in curing several health concerns such as digestive problems, weight problems, cardiovascular health, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, autoimmune diseases as well as mental health & general wellbeing. Nutrition therapy also helps in curing infections, surgery and trauma conditions. The major reason for adopting nutrition therapy is that the food which we eat has a profound effect on our physical, mental and social wellbeing.
The aim of nutrition therapy is to prevent the macro and micronutrient deficiency as well as maintaining body tissues and functioning plasma protein. Along with the dietary changes, natural supplements are also recommended for complimenting the conventional medicines and make the treatment more effective.
