Minerals are essential for health and wellbeing. They provide structural support in bones and teeth, and they maintain the body's acid/base and water balance, nerve activity, muscular activity, energy production and enzyme reactions.
Ideally, we should get all the minerals we need from the foods that we eat. Unfortunately today this is rarely possible. Australian soils, in particular, are low in several important minerals, which reduces the mineral content in our food. As well, food additives, pollution and stress can also affect our body’s nutrient balance.
Nutritional deficiencies may contribute to:
- Weight gain/loss
- Muscle weakness
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Hormonal imbalance
- Learning difficulties
Your Registered Acupuncturist may prescribe nutritional supplements, alone or alongside other therapies, to bring your body back into balance.
Nutritional supplements will not be supplied without an appointment.
