Holistic Diet and Nutrition

Chinese Nutrition Therapy Certification

Adequate intake of nutrients is necessary for the body to achieve full growth, maintain good health, and protect itself against a variety of diseases. Unfortunately, few people realise this fact that they do not pay much attention to the food they eat, more so the diet they engage in. As a result, they are at risk of running into a variety of health problems including muscle cramps, fatigue, anaemia, balance impairment, osteoporosis, memory loss, and poor growth, just to name a few.


Helping the body receive the necessary amount of nutrients always starts with proper knowledge of nutrition, including its sources and recommended intake. Equally important is to develop a positive relationship with food and doing changes in one’s eating habits.
