"The 360 Team prepared a dietary plan in the week leading to the ride which was complemented by making me a range of very yummy sustained-energy food snacks that could be consumed easily while on the bike...

 

I could have kept going at the end.

 

The post-ride recovery guidance also meant that I was fully mobile the following day!"

Nutritional Therapy

 

Nutritional Therapy is a holistic but science-based approach to health and illness, which addresses the cause of ill health not just the symptoms.

 

This approach promotes optimum health, wellness and peak performance by identifying and then rectifying nutritional imbalances. Unlike the current medical model of "one size fits all" you will have experienced, nutritional therapy is a personalised practice.

Every health issue has an underlying cause. Registered Nutritional Therapists are trained to identify these using a wide range of tools and then enrich your nutritional status to improve health. Using nutrition science we develop personalised nutrition plans to support you every step of the way. 

 

Studies show that this approach works across a diverse range of issues – increasing fish consumption can improve school grades [1,2,3]; a low glycaemic diet is as effective as the most commonly prescribed Diabetes drugs [4]; adjusting B vitamins levels may relieve depression [5,6].
