No matter you minor or major health challenge, body battle or disease you may be facing, your body is presenting you with symptoms of an underlying issue. Your symptoms are your body’s way of trying to tell you something isn’t right. So usually, you seek medical help to overcome the symptoms. Pain. Skin alterations. Weight changes. Hair loss. Fatigue. Muscle weakness. Allergies. Joint inflammation. Whatever the symptom; these are common causes for medical intervention.
What sets Mana Health apart from many mainstream treatments, is we strive to help the underlying cause of your condition.
We treat the body as a system, not just the symptoms.
Mana Health aims to restore your body to its optimal state through the prescription of specific nourishment for your body through foods, vitamins, minerals, supplementation and / or lifestyle protocols to help you overcome the challenges you are struggling to overcome the root cause of the issue, rather than simply band-aid the symptoms.
Absolutely. Sometimes we may not realise there are simple improvements we can make to our health to increase energy and vitality and maintain longevity; preventing disease and illness later in life as much as possible.
Even if you are feeling “well”, why not book in for a consultation to consider learning more about specific nutritional needs for your health and your body.
All initial consultation commences with an extensive questionnaire which will query the heath of all body systems, a history of your health and discuss current symptoms or challenges. A protocol will be provided at the end of the session or via email after the consultation, which will include directions for foods to include or exclude, specific nutritional supplements (such as vitamins, minerals, probiotics etc) to aid in your healing process and lifestyle recommendations, to restore your health and vitality!
All follow-up sessions will include a review of your health, the progress made and the effectiveness of the prescribed treatment protocols.
Every single person is different though it is recommended, when the prescribed treatment plan and protocols are followed as close to the recommended guidelines as possible, the best possible outcomes are available to you.
However, in respect to everyone’s individual history and body, absolute guarantees cannot be made.
