A dietician is trained in dietetics or human nutrition. A dietician will review and alters a patient’s nutrition based upon their medical condition and individual needs. Dieticians are licensed and regulated to assess and diagnose, nutritional problems and then recommend treatment by way of food intake.
Dieticians recommend changes in diet based upon their knowledge of nutritional biochemistry.
Energy Balancing describes the relationship between what energy we put in our bodies and what energy comes out. In a metaphysical sense and in a direct caloric sense.
An EB practitioner would ask us to take into consideration the first law of thermodynamics; The total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another but cannot be created or destroyed.
This is because at the core of this modality, balance is sought between what we put in our body and what comes out. That energy entering our body is routed into three major “destinations”: work, heat and storage affecting your whole body and all of its functions.
Nutritional Therapy is more of a nutritional intervention. Practitioners critically alter a patients diet to create biological conditions for a medicinal purpose. The Gersin Diet is a good example of this type of therapy. Prevention of illness is one of the core principles of this healing modality. Nutritional therapy is used for diets to gain or loose weight, to detox the body in general or for the detoxification of specific organs.
Orthomolecular medicine uses vitamin and minerals in higher volumes than recommended by regulatory agencies. This form of alternative or complimentary therapy is often used by patients with immunological conditions. At the core of this healing modality is the idea that an optimum nutritional environment in the body will fight disease and rejuvenate environments of illness. This healing modality is used to correct “imbalances or deficiencies based on individual biochemistry”.
