Did you know that your:

  • Skin replaces itself every 28 days?
  • Red blood cells live for 120 days before being replaced?
  • Liver rebuilds itself after 5 months?
  • Bones are replaced every 10 years?

Good, healthy and wholesome food is the corner stone of all things naturopathic – It’s why one of the guiding naturopathic philosophies is ‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’. Our body uses the nutrients, vitamins and minerals parceled up in our foods to heal, strengthen and revitalise our body.

It’s important to be eating a balanced, nutritious diet to ensure you have all that is required for your body to function optimally.

So what is the perfect diet?

The truth is, there isn’t a perfect dietary plan out there and that’s the exciting part!

You’ve probably heard of several diets being touted as the next big thing…The Paleo Diet, Sugar-Free, The 5:2 diet, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Yeast-Free, Wheat-free, Anti-Candida Diet, The Mediterranean Diet, Juicing, Grain-Free…. The list goes on and on, and it’s easy to see why so many people get confused!

Rebecca will combine her practice as a naturopath and nutritionist to establish a nutritional plan that is right for your body and life. Sure, there are some key principles to healthy eating that you will probably find common throughout many programs, but it’s important to look at how your nutrition can be customised to ensure it’s the right fit for you (not just something a friend or family member told you about).
