V-Healthy::The Vegetarian Society

V-Healthy::The Vegetarian Society

Harley Street Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston applies the science of optimum nutrition to a plant based diet at the request of the UK Vegetarian Society at the risk of vegetarians becoming as smug on health issues as they already are on environmental issues.

Vegetarians and Vegans have long since apparently assumed that they have the healthiest possible diet. In fact many people embark on a vegetarian diet assuming it's healthier.

Generally that's true but the basic principles of health still have to be followed - pizza, pasta and chip butties are all vegetarian foods but there are many nutrients missing from the average examples of those foods.

There are just one or two important nutrients  that you don't get "by accident" the way it's easy to do in a meat based diet so it's even more important for vegetarians to eat a varied diet to achieve an optimal nutrition balance. Ironically meat eaters are often low in the nutrients (such as iron and vitamin B12) that feature in the myths about inadequate vegetarian diets.

Probiotics For Optimum Nutrition

Healthy Eating &  Nutrition News: Mainstream Medicine Catches on to Nutritionists Tools Bottom Health  - "Getting to the bottom of digestive health involves more than just a pot of probiotic yoghurt" Says UK Nutritionist.

Leading London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston says "It's great to see mainstream medicine catching on to something nutritionists have been banging on about for many years. A recent report on probiotics by the British Nutrition Foundation should alert mainstream health professionals in the NHS about a more common sense approach to digestive health."

"They even seem to have grasped the concept that probiotics are not a one size fits all silver bullet solution too. As nutritionists we use therapeutic strength probiotics in a very targetted way. We test the gut to see exactly whats going on in there , looking not just for infections and parasites but also measuring levels of good and bad bacteria."

"It doesn't stop there however. Even once the inmmediate problem has been addressed with therapeutic strength probiotics , for long term health you have to create an environment that will sustain a flourishing culture of good bacteria and discourage bad bacteria from repopulating the gut. "

"Many of the problems we deal with such as stress, lack of energy, IBS and other digestive disorders, skin problems, weight gain and even hormonal and fertility issues often lead back to an unhealthy digestive system and fundamental dysfunction that led to reduced effectiveness and nutritient absorbtion"
