Freda Dunn, qualified Nutritionist
Freda Dunn’s Acupuncture and Natural Therapies Clinic is one of the most successful clinics in Queensland. Also one of the area’s largest clinics, Freda Dunn’s has been operating for 25 years, 20 of which have been in Noosa.
Freda became an accredited practitioner 24 years ago and is involved with Natural Therapies, having served as a Director of Australian Natural Therapies Association (ANTA) for several years. She is also a member of ANTA in Diet & Nutrition, and was awarded a lifetime membership due to her outstanding service to the organization, its members and the practice.
Did you know that some processed foods, loaded with saturated fats, sugars and salt, is actually linked to being overweight and suffering from chronic disease? Nutrition is important because it fuels our bodies. Much like our cars need the right type of fuel to function at their best, our bodies need the same. Knowing what to eat and how to create a balance can be a challenge, however.
Nutritionists aim to help us create that balance by making sure we get enough nutrients from the five food groups, as well as helping us realize which foods should be discretionary and enjoyed less often. These may seem like small changes, but science shows they can not only help us live healthier lives, but it can help us live longer lives as well.
Children and teenagers will have special nutritional needs due to their ongoing development, and older people will need to adjust their diets for their activity level. This is where a nutritionist can help! They can also help you determine the best way to plan these guidelines in your diet based on your lifestyle.
Why eat healthy
Most people consider losing weight the number one reason for eating healthier. But should it be our top priority? Research typically shows that in most cases, healthy weight follows healthy choices, but those healthy choices have benefits that far exceed simple weight loss. For example, proper eating habits can lead to a decreased risk of some cancers, heart disease, chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetes.
As children grow and develop, and teenagers begin leading active lifestyles, they feel better and have fewer developmental problems with a proper diet. In adulthood, women who become pregnant will benefit the growth of their baby by choosing foods that are rich in nutrients. As we age into later adulthood, we often need less calories and more nutrients, as we no longer burn fat at the same rate.
