'If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health.” - Hippocrates
Nutrition is the study of how the body uses nutrients from food and the connection between diet and health or disease. There is a growing body of scientific evidence supporting how diet and nutrition can promote optimum health. Nutritional Therapy considers the role of how our diet and lifestyle, genetics, environmental toxins and stressors all play a role in our health and well-being. Combining a healthy diet and lifestyle can help you to reduce the risk of chronic disease and illness while promoting overall health and wellness. No matter where you are on your health journey, Nutritional Therapy can provide you with the tools and support needed to reach your health and wellness goals.
Good nutrition is vital for a healthy body and a healthy reproductive system in both men and women planning to conceive. It is advisable to have a healthy varied diet prior to conception as it can take three months for eggs to mature before ovulation and similarly three months for sperm to develop.
A study conducted by the University of Surrey showed that couples with a previous history of infertility who made changes to their diet and lifestyle had an 80 percent success rate. If you are planning a treatment cycle of IVF, ICSI or IUI, then it is important that you provide your body with the best nutrition possible to provide the correct raw materials to support both egg and sperm quality and boost your chances of success with treatment.
