Nutrition: A practical approach explains nutrition in an understandable, interesting and straightforward way. It is suitable for use on a variety of nutrition courses including those offered by VTCT, ION, ITEC and the Home Study Nutrition Diploma Course written by the author and accredited by Vocational Awards International. It is also ideal for those studying a nutrition module on therapy-based courses such as the VTCT Holistic Diploma or NVQ 3 in Beauty Therapy. It is excellent reference material for health practitioners, holistic therapists or anyone with a general interest in nutrition. Divided into 3 parts, Part 1 covers the basic theory for nutrition. It covers macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats), micro nutrients (vitamins and minerals), herbal remedies and superfoods. It also covers diet, supplements, food labels, food myths and nutrition of specific groups of people, such as the pregnant women. Part 2 covers nutritional influences on body systems and explains over 100 everyday symptoms including fatigue, loss of concentration, aching joints, bloating, heartburn, PMS, endometriosis, arthritis, candid and insomnia. Symptoms are listed for each body system and an explanation of how diet affects each system is given. From the digestive system through to the urinary system, recommendations are given by way of supernutrients, herbal remedies, superfoods and lifestyle changes. Part 3 helps you get started in the field of nutrition. It covers topics ranging from diet planning principles to calculating Body Mass Index and The Weakest Link questionnaire. This simple questionnaire is quick to complete and helps you ascertain your client's weakest body system. This enables you to provide effective home care advice regarding the system which needs most support in association with Part 2 of the book.
