Medical Nutrition Therapy refers to the treatment of diseases or disorders with the help of proper nutrition. It includes diabetes, PCOS, fatty liver, elevated cholesterol, hyper/hypo thyroidism. Basically, most of these issues arise because of hormonal imbalances.
Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers that help control every physiological process in our body. This includes metabolism, immune system, menstrual cycle, sleep, stress, reproduction and more. Without doubt it is important for this system to be balanced in order for us to function optimally.
Additionally, hormone related problems are multifaceted and could be caused by a combination of factors. Genes, diet, environmental toxins, deficiencies, stress, and lifestyle are some of them.
