My Nutrition Philosophy
At the core of optimal health and wellness is balance and vitality. This is often achieved by being in tune with your body and nature.
At The Nourished Network, I advocate a balanced and holistic lifestyle underpinned by the Seven Pillars of Health and the Seven Pillars of Support.
Seven Pillars of Health
Fresh Air. Deeply and slowly from the diaphragm.
Safe and adequate exposure to sunlight. Improves mood.
Relax, restore, rejuvenate, mediation and mindfulness.
Real, nutrient dense, wholefood to nurture your mind, body, soul
Daily. Strength, stamina, move with joy and purpose.
Family, friends and the local community
Seven Pillars of Support
By working with me, you will be supported nutritionally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
Individualised Approach and Treatment Plan
An individualised Treatment Plan will be developed based on your needs.
Mix things up every day at every meal with foods from all five food groups. Include lots of colour and different textures.
Nutrient dense and wholefoods
My food philosophy is based on nutrient dense, wholefoods with minimal processing and intervention. Choose nutritious foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meats, poultry and seafood, nuts, grains and seeds.
Build positive relationship with food.
Everything in balance and moderation! It’s important that your food choices are varied, exciting, affordable and sustainable.
Manageable & Sustainable lifestyle changes
I will introduce you to small manageable and sustainable changes tailored for your life. I don’t believe in overloading you with heaps of information and recipes that you will never make or can’t afford. We will look at your lifestyle, timetable, dietary preferences and finances to ensure that suggestions are within reach.
Encourage you to practice mindful eating. Explore the behaviours and emotions behind your food choices.
I will provide you with ongoing support while you are a client. This will include scheduled appointments, emails and phone calls.
The Healing Power of Nature
Nutritional Medicine is a distinct and complete system of healthcare, which treats the ‘whole’ person. The practice is based on the ‘food as medicine’ philosophy designed to regulate nutritional deficiencies and stimulate the natural healing energies (vital force) of the body to promote harmony and balance.
At The Nourished Network, the practice of Nutritional Medicine is based on six foundational core principles:
- First Do No Harm
- Treat the Whole Person
- Doctor as Teacher
- Identify and Treat the Cause
- The Healing Power of Nature
