Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and sense of wellbeing. Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health, and determine people’s response to changes in the environment. Under certain circumstances and in some individuals, diet can be a serious risk factor for a number of diseases. Common dietary chemicals can act on the human genome, either directly or indirectly, to alter gene expression or structure. The degree to which diet influences the balance between healthy and disease states may depend on an individual’s genetic makeup. Some diet-regulated genes are likely to play a role in the onset, incidence, progression, and or severity of chronic diseases. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirement, nutritional status, and genotype offers personalised nutrition that can be used to prevent, mitigate or cure chronic disease.
