“Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food” – Hippocrates, 431 B.C.
Let simple nutrition become the most natural way to treat and prevent any health issues you may be facing.
Maya can help you by offering advice on simple tools you can use including dietary and supplement advice, simple lifestyle changes, yoga based breathing practices and meditation (where appropriate) to help you enjoy the benefits of maximum health.
By treating the cause of any symptoms you may be presenting with and by treating you as a unique individual, Maya can help improve your quality of your life in its many aspects.
You are what you Eat, Digest and Think
What you eat, the way you digest, think, live and love greatly influence your health and wellbeing.
Food is the primary source of fuel for your body. The foods you consume, after being broken down, actually make up the chemical structure of your body tissues. The quality of fuel (food) you consume, the breakdown into individual nutrients and assimilation through the body’s ‘metabolic engine’, can influence your overall health and how well your body functions and resists infections and disease.
In the Western society, we seem to put up with ‘Adequate Health’. A state of ‘imperfect’ health where we don’t suffer with any serious illness, but yet put up with niggling, repetitive, regular symptoms of different conditions. Symptoms can present as headaches, arthritic pain, skin conditions (acne, eczema, dermatitis), digestive complaints (bloating, constipation, diarrhoea), menstrual symptoms (water retention, abdominal or back pain, menstrual migraines, PMT), menopausal symptoms, anxiety, depression, food intolerances, and the list goes on. And, of course, many of us spend way too much time worrying about our weight or spending way too much money on fad diets which always disappoint.
Using a Naturopathic Approach to Nutrition, Maya can help gradually bring you out of a state of established disease or ‘Adequate Health’ towards a healthier, more balanced state of ‘Optimal Health’. You will learn how to achieve, enjoy and most importantly, maintain continuous health.
