Food is medicine and is the primary way we fuel our body system for energy production and rebuild, repair and recovery.
“You are what you eat” and that is why you will find the finest ingredients sourced for our Gaia guest meals, combining modern dietary science with the wisdom of traditional dietetics. Practitioners assess individual dietary needs and give nutritional advices and plans to suit your specific needs.
What you eat today has a deep and profound impact on your future health. Nutritional medicine is the building block of health. Nutrients are the driving force behind every function in the body and therefore boost the physiological as well as mental and emotional functions of the entire body.
With expert knowledge and where indicated, nutritional supplements can make dramatic changes to your health and wellbeing. Individual protocols are assessed and recommendations are made when indicated.
Iridology is used as an analytical tool to study the coloured part of your eye called the Iris. Known as the blue print of your body system, Iridology is used as a map of the body system assessing its delicate fibres and tissues, which can tell a story of the physiology and hereditary predispositions.
The Iris can show both inherent and acquired aspects of your body, giving indications of potential hereditary strengths and weakness of the body system. This is an important tool used for helping to understand the way an individual body functions.
Herbal medicine, known as Natures pharmacy is a gentler and more supportive way to effectively address health complaints and enhance vitality and the prevention of illness and disease.
