Department of Nutrition and Alternative Medicine

Nutritional therapists can advise on healthy eating, and can put together eating plans to address a huge range of conditions from IBS to candida, from under active thyroid to infertility. A major theory is that health is achieved through balancing yin and yang and disease is caused by an imbalance leading to a blockage in the flow of qi.
