Clinical Nutrition is a specialist branch of Nutrition & Dietetics that demonstrates an inherent understanding of how nutrients play a role in alleviating disease via nutritional biochemistry pathways. It is a science of how nutrients are metabolised, stored, digested, eliminated and absorbed and how this plays a vital role in one’s health and well-being.
Clinical Nutrition also encompasses the relationships between food and the human body and also how the nutritional breakdown of our dietary consumption influences our daily health. Clinical Nutrition Therapy consists of Dietary advice, correcting deficiency states, therapeutic inclusion of supplements, lifestyle modulation and meal-planning. Clinical Nutrition can be successful in conditions ranging from mental health disorders, children health, Fatty Liver, digestive health, endocrine disorders, sports medicine, and weight loss.
