Revitalise your health and skin with an Integrity Nutritionist
At Integrity Skin Clinic we understand that the health of your skin not only reflects what you put on your skin, and treat it with, but also what is going on inside your body. To give you and your skin the best chance of optimum health the support of a qualified and experienced nutritionist is invaluable. Hence, the introduction of our new specialist Nutritionist service.
The role of a nutritionist in improving health
A nutritionist is a health scientist that has studied at a tertiary level the correlation between human health, disease processes and nutritional biochemistry. By definition ‘nutrition’ is the branch of science that deals with nutrients and nutrition, particularly in humans including the process of taking in food (the digestive process) and using it for growth, metabolism and repair. The nutritional digestive process includes ingestion, digestion, absorption, transport, assimilation and excretion.
Every process in the body needs certain nutrients in (good conditions/environments) to perform its biochemical job. A lack of these essential macro and micro nutrients for a length of time through poor diet combined with lifestyle or environmental stressors can result in nutrient deficiencies, which can over time diminish your health and influence or exacerbate (dis)ease (meaning not at ease).
Other factors affecting the health of your body and skin include genetics, dehydration, medications, poor gut health, food allergies/intolerances and so on can. All this in turn can reflect on your skin presenting as conditions such as eczema (dermatitis), psoriasis, acne, rosacea, facial redness, premature ageing and so on.
We are all responsible for what we put in our mouths, how we move and what we put on our skin. A qualified nutritionist with clinical experience can empower you to address and improve all these areas!
How our nutritionist works: a synergistic, holistic approach
An Integrity nutritionist will consider the whole picture from the outside-in, to work synergistically and in conjunction with topical products or paramedical treatments to give you the best and fastest results possible. She will encourage you to promote your skin healing, strength and health through the right nutrition, prescription supplements, diet and lifestyle choices and by implementing change to give you optimum results – not only for your skin but your whole body.
Our onsite nutritionist works in conjunction with our team of paramedical skin practitioners using specialist equipment, medical imaging and pathology testing such as blood or hair analysis to ensure accurate and precise detection to prescribe the best treatment options. At Integrity we dispense prescription only, science-backed, nutritional supplements, therapeutic and prescription-only skincare to help you achieve optimum results and healthy, younger looking skin.
Your private one-on-one consultation with our nutritionist in our specialist suite will be tailored to only you and your concerns. You can expect an initial consultation to last about an hour. During this time our nutritionist will carefully take your case history and formulate a prescription including:
• diet and lifestyle changes
• nutritional supplementation (where required)
• a short- and long-term treatment plan to help you achieve your health and skin goals.
