Nutritional medicine involves the correction, as far as possible, of various medical conditions by the introduction of sensible dietary measures. Dr. Pitts has been a member of the Australian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine since 1984; see Links for URL
It is likely that in the world of the future it will be possible to treat most diseases by foods, aliments and various waters, however for the time being it is certainly necessary to modify the diets of many patients as the main contribution to the restoration of health. Many conditions are in fact the result of the patient having eaten various foods and drinks in the wrong proportions, thus leading to a diseased state.
There are many diseases common in medical practice where a diagnosis has been established but the allopathic treatments have been of limited use and the patient still has symptoms which are unresolved.
It has become possible to manage such conditions by wise dietary changes.Diseases such as eczema and psoriasis, urticaria and itchy skin rashes, irritable bowel syndrome and colitis, arthritis and rheumatism, headaches and migraine, bladder problems and recurring cystitis, MS and Parkinson’s disease, and and fatigue have been found to be associated with certain foods and food groups. These diseases can often by cured or greatly alleviated by treatments using dietary modification.
Other treatments for menopausal symptoms and endometriosis in women, and some ageing conditions in men can be well managed using hormone creams, obtainable on prescription from compounding pharmacists.
