What exactly is nutrition therapy?
Lack of vitamins and minerals causes many ills! Increasing scientific research in the field of nutrition clearly demonstrates relationships between particular diseases and illnesses and the therapeutic and curative effects of foods. There is evidence nutritional therapy was used as early as 1500 B.C. during ancient Greece. Until the 20th century, most nutritional therapies were administered based on simple observation. Hence in the 18th century it was discovered that fresh fruits and vegetables cured scurvy. It wasn’t until the 20th century that Vitamin C complex was identified as the scurvy curing agent.
