Katherine Tudsbury is an experienced Cape Town-based Nutritional Therapist focusing on the prevention and cure of chronic, metabolic and degenerative diseases. Believing we can take full responsibility for our own wellbeing, she says: "Education is the key which will open the doors to healing by encouraging patients to accept responsibility for their health and embark on a healthy lifestyle."
Nutritional therapy is a system of healing based on the belief that food can cure ailments and maintain a state of health. It is characterized by its drug-free approach, respect for the body’s self healing ability, use of supplements to maximize an individual’s health and recognition that nutrition affects all the bodily systems, including mental health.
We asked Katherine for her thoughts on Baobab superfruit powder:
"Baobab powder is a nutrient-dense superfood that I recommend for bio-available access to vitamin C and synergistic minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium.
We know that the health of gastrointestinal tract is strongly linked to various chronic illnesses, including depression and autoimmune conditions. The dietary fibre in baobab powder is a prebiotic food which supports the growth of trillions of healthy bacteria in the gut. These bacteria have a role in synthesizing vitamin K, producing certain hormones and promoting digestion, absorption and elimination.
Baobab powder is unprocessed, raw and 100% natural which makes it a great addition to the diet. I suggest that clients use baobab powder in smoothies for an easy and great tasting breakfast."
Many conditions may benefit from nutritional therapy, such as chronic fatigue, energy loss, insomnia and depression, digestive disorders, skin complaints, asthma, and headaches.
