Diet and Nutrition - Naturopath Zeina Raya's naturopathic practice

Diet is one of the most important factors to consider when getting in shape and in the best health possible. Although a healthy diet contributes to overall good health, a naturopath can adjust your diet to satisfy your particular needs. Nutrition can be divided in different categories: sport nutrition; pregnancy nutrition; weight loss nutrition and vegetarian nutrition. 

"The nutrition advice provided during a naturopathy consultation allows you to get a menu that is best suited to your needs, to reach your goals and your optimal shape!" 

Nutrition advice varies greatly according to the set goals. Your naturopath will of course consider your health condition and illnesses (diabetes, hypertension, food intolerance or allergies, infection, digestive problems, etc.) before proposing you a diet.

Within the same diet category (sport, pregnancy, weight loss, vegetarian), one must not forget that each person has their own metabolism, i.e. different energy requirements. Your metabolism varies according to your genetic background, your level of physical activity, your gender and age. For example, some individuals have a carbo-oxydative metabolism, this means that they “burn” carbohydrates more efficiently than others. On the contrary, some individuals burn fats more efficiently (lipo-oxydative metabolism). According to your metabolism type, we will recommend to you certain types of food. However, many other factors affect your metabolism: your level of stress; your nervous system; your hormonal system; your intestinal functions as well as your medical history.

Consulting a Naturapath helps you reach your goals more quickly and, in a healthy way, while taking into account your health condition and metabolism.
