We implement an integrative health and wellbeing approach that includes Nutrition, Supplements and Natural Remedies, Lifestyle Improvement and Exercise Therapy. We design a personalised programme for your specific needs.
What Optimal Nutrition Is
Optimal Nutrition is defined as eating all nutrients in the right amounts, and distribute them adequately during the day to achieve the longest possible lifetime in good health and the best physical performance. A balanced nutrition should ensure optimal intake of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre and water. Furthermore, optimal nutrition should include phytonutrients, as these substances are naturally occurring in plants and some foods, and are important to support bodily functions and help disease prevention. However, unhealthy diet leads to obesity, loss of energy, fatigue and increases the risk of developing a number of diseases, including type II diabetes, stroke, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, osteoporosis and nutritional anaemia. In order to create the Optimal Nutrition Plan, we consider a number of factors, including your age, gender, body composition, health, level of physical activity and genetic makeup. This enables us to create a Nutrition Plan that is designed specifically to provide you with the optimal amount of nutrients that your body needs. We also design specific nutrition plans including:
Weight loss and weight management
Detox and skin care
Increase energy levels
Improve cardiovascular health
Boosting the immune system
Balancing hormones naturally
What Supplements Are
A wide range of nutrients is required in order to ensure optimal bodily functions, and maintain good health. Many surveys that have been conducted suggested the majority of people do not get sufficient intake of vitamins and minerals daily. This results from poor diet and also because the content of mineral and vitamins in food is falling compared with few decades ago. Studies have shown that such micronutrients decreased due to consumption of not fresh and refined food, and depleted soil as a result of intensive farming. Furthermore, the Daily Recommended Allowance of minerals and vitamins are set to prevent vitamin deficiency such as rickets and scurvy. However, in order to ensure optimal health, higher amounts of these micronutrients are often required. For instance, in case of infections such as flu, higher dose of vitamin C is required to strengthen and support the immune system helping to combat the infection. While, insufficient sunlight exposure leads to low vitamin D levels requiring supplements to ensure calcium absorption and healthy bones. In addition, vitamin D deficiency may cause joint pain or stiffness, and muscle cramps. These are just some examples, and there is a large body of evidence suggesting that optimal daily intake of minerals and vitamins is crucial for health and wellbeing.
What Natural Remedies Are
Natural remedies are bioactive compounds found in plants and some foods, which are often included in herbal medicine, and have been used for many centuries, especially in countries of the South-East Asia Region. Many natural remedies are extracted from plants such as leaves, flowers or roots, and also from certain foods. They contain bioactive compounds that help the body function optimally and promote healing. For instance turmeric is a spice that contains an active compound called curcumin, which has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. Recent trials have shown that arthritic patients benefit from turmeric intake. Passionflower, is used to treat anxiety, restlessness and promotes healthy sleeping patterns. These were just a couple of examples of the many natural remedies used to help the body function optimally, treat various conditions and promote health.
What Lifestyle Improvements Is
Lifestyle refers to a set of habits and customs of an individual. It has been shown that unhealthy lifestyle often results in poor physical or mental condition. Lifestyle improvement focuses on helping individuals maintaining good health and wellbeing.
What Exercise Therapy Is
There is a burgeoning body of evidence suggesting that physical activity is a key component in maintaining health, physical and mental wellbeing, and disease prevention. In contrast, physical inactivity is linked with a number of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, colon and breast cancer, lipids disorders, osteoporosis, and low mood and anxiety. Exercise therapy involves prescription and guidance to an individual for the performance of a specific training programme. The primary purposes of exercise prescription are to provide an effective and valid guide for optimal health and improve fitness. Exercise prescription can be very specific according to the needs and objectives of the individual. The variables of exercise training include specificity, progressive overload, frequency, intensity and duration. We utilise these variables to design exercise training programmes in order to elicit the physiological adaptations and attain the desired results. The exercise training programmes can be performed at home, in open air such as parks, or in the gym.
We design various training programmes, including:
Weight Loss & Weight Management
Improving Body Composition
Strength and Conditioning
Improving Posture and Flexibility
Increase Self Confidence
Improving Self Esteem
Increase Energy Level
Improving Sport Performance
How It Works
We take into consideration that each individual is unique and provide careful guidance, knowledge and motivation that each person needs to reach and maintain his/her optimum health and fitness. Also, we offer a wide range of Nutrition, Anthropometric, Health and Wellbeing Testing and Lifestyle Assessment tests to help us to establish the personal needs, calculate the Total Daily Energy Expenditure, and assess the causes of ill health.
