One-on-one consultations are at the heart of the services provided by Lindsay. Lindsay focuses on the individual and how to mitigate disease and enhance health by improving nutritional status, and correcting metabolic imbalances.
Specific ailments or conditions can be alleviated through nutritional therapy – after all, what you eat and how you ‘fuel’ the cells in your body is bound to impact how well your organs and body systems function. Each individual has different nutrient requirements and they are handled by the body in diverse ways according to your state of health. By analysing the nutrients in your diet and how well you are able to utilise them, Lindsay can specify a dietary plan for you which will help improve your condition and reduce further risk of disease.
Lindsay offers a complementary integrated nutritional service, providing dietary services to support medical treatment, and reduce the risk of chronic disease through optimum nutrition.
