Nutrition Counselling


Nutrition counselling is the provision of information, educational materials, support and follow-up care to help an individual make and maintain the needed dietary changes.

Today’s major health care problems are increasingly the result of acute and chronic conditions related to poor nutrition. A large portion of the so called life style diseases - heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, stroke and cancer can be attributed to unhealthy eating habits and obesity. Nutrition and HIV/AIDS are also intricately linked. Infection with HIV can lead to malnutrition and progression of disease can be exacerbated by poor diet. Good nutrition also plays a significant role in supporting a healthy mind and mental health disorders. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), anxiety disorders, Depression, and early phase psychosis can benefit from optimizing the nutritional quality of the daily diet. Further Nutrition principles can be applied to delay the effects of aging and disease and to aid in the management of physical, psychological and psychosocial changes commonly associated with growing old.

Nutritional wellness can therefore improve lives of millions of people struggling with physical chronic diseases and mental illnesses.
