Nutritional Therapy and Diet

Diet & Nutritional therapy

It’s simple enough, as Michael Pollen the author of one of our recommended books “Food Rules” says

“Eat food, mainly plants, not too much”

But as with many things, and for many people, it’s easier said than done. We are without doubt at Balance Performance that what you eat is not only of major importance to your overall health but also hugely influential on your efficiency to recover from any illness or injury. So many times our injured clients report that they have either put weight on when injured or have lowered the quality of their eating – often because of some change in their motivation. We would encourage a more proactive approach and show you that its an opportunity, and could be a major incentive for you to further IMPROVE what you eat. The majority of us are, after all, interested in resolving problems of injury, illness or surgery, and overcoming challenges to health as fast as possible.

Nutritional Therapy can help you with:

  • Blood-sugar management and type-2 diabetes
  • Cardiovascular health including high blood-pressure and cholesterol
  • Digestive and gut health
  • Food allergies and intolerances
  • Healthy ageing, in particular joint and bone health in the elderly
  • Mood, stress and anxiety
  • Pregnancy requirements and infant nutrition

What do you feel you need?

  • Do you need to lose bodyweight to improve your health in some way? to reduce the risk of diabetes for example.
  • Do you need to maximise your opportunity to reduce pain and come back from injury?
  • Do you feel that improving your diet is needed to reduce the symptoms of a particular illness or condition you are suffering – IBS, adrenal fatigue, low energy, chronic pain
  • Do you want to reduce bodyweight or body fat to simply feel better, to be more mobile and agile?
  • Do you want to reduce your body fat for sports performance, or making a weight division?
  • Are you preparing for an event – marathon, ultra distance run, bike or swim, trek and need to meet increased energy demands and the challenges to recovery that come with an increased volume and intensity of training
