Biochemical Medicine also known as Nutritional Medicine is the smart alternative to drug therapy. Biochemical treatments use natural body chemicals rather than “foreign” drug molecules. This model leads to the belief that many diseases result from disordered body chemistry, whether genetic or acquired, and that healing is best achieved through correction of these chemical imbalances.
Biochemistry, sometimes called biological chemistry, is the study of chemical processes within and relating to, living organisms. By controlling information flow through biochemical signalling and the flow of chemical energy through metabolism, biochemical processes give rise to the complexity of life. Today, the main focus of pure biochemistry is in understanding how biological molecules give rise to the processes that occur within living cells, which in turn relates greatly to the study and understanding of whole organisms.
Biochemistry is closely related to molecular biology, the study of the molecular mechanisms by which genetic information encoded in DNA is able to result in the processes of life. Depending on the exact definition of the terms used, molecular biology can be thought of as a branch of biochemistry, or biochemistry as a tool with which to investigate and study molecular biology.
Each part of every living being is biochemically connected. Biochemistry is at the heart of life science. It is a fascinating, diverse and sprawling discipline; which makes it near impossible to pigeon-hole or define concisely. Many look upon biochemistry as a science that underpins and explains the essential processes of life, impacting on:
Biotechnology – Bioinformatics – Cell biology and Signalling – Development and Disease – Energy and Metabolism – Genetics – Molecular biology – Plant Biology
Nutritional Medicine is also called biochemical medicine. Nutritional Medicine focuses on helping symptoms of –
Blood tests and urine tests are undertaken and analysed and a tailored treatment regime is developed with specific nutrients and vitamins to treat these symptoms.
There are also opportunities to do combined consultations with a qualified Naturopath to integrate mainstream medicine with natural methods to diet and nutrients to provide holistic solutions to suit your health needs.
Should you consider Nutritional or Biochemical therapy? What are the costs involved? What kind of results can you expect? Our patients have many questions and we find they are best explained by a medical professional that can refer to your particular condition and symptoms. We are here to help you find the best solutions to help with a fast recovery with the minimum of fuss.
