WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL HEALTH CARE?
Nutritional Health Care is the use of nutritional and naturopathic methods in order to promote treatment of underlying disease causing and/or contributing factors. It is not seen as a complete alternative to mainstream medicine, it is more aiming to promote the underlying health of an individual, therefore contributing to disease prevention and treatment.

LOW LEVEL LASER THERAPY
Drug-free pain relief and healing.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries to stimulate cellular repair and tissue healing. Unlike surgical or aesthetic lasers, it does not cause your tissues to heat up. Light frequencies reduce pain and promote tissue healing.
It is painless, safe, non-invasive and has no side effects.
Low–Level laser has an analgesic effect, which reduces the pain signals going to the brain. After a number of treatments, the nerves in the affected area become less irritable and pain is reduced. By blocking the pain over a period of time muscles in the affected area become more relaxed and tissues heal.
To sum up Low Level Laser Therapy
- Provides pain relief by treating the cause and alleviating the symptoms
- Accelerates healing, getting you back in action faster
- Reduces inflammation and swelling, meaning less discomfort after an injury
- Reduces reliance on pharmaceuticals (under medical supervision)
