with Dr. Diaz
Clinical nutrition is based on the principle that food can be used as therapy and nutrition science can be applied in the promotion of optimal health. As a result of increasing scientific research evidence, whole foods and nutritional supplements have become increasingly effective in maintaining health and treating disease. In fact, food components are now being investigated for their role in chronic degenerative diseases such as heart disease, auto-immunity, cancer, and dental health.
Nutrition is concerned with how food affects the body, from fetal development to immunity, mental function, and sports performance. In addition, nutritional science and molecular biology are increasingly interconnected, which might explain the cellular actions of food components and the diversity of cellular responses in humans.
In nutrition research, the focus has increasingly been placed on achieving optimal health and preventing chronic degenerative diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
After analysing your case, food diary and possibly functional tests, Dr. Diaz will apply her evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle knowledge to identify possible imbalances on your nutrition and physiology and help you achieve good health and wellbeing. This will be achieved by the advise of an individualised plan on functional nutrition, practitioner grade supplements, and lifestyle changes to help you maintain or restore health.
