We're all about POSITIVE EATING here at the Albany Street Clinic. Eating well is much more about adding in the good stuff than taking out the bad stuff (with the exception of sugar). There is so much that can be done to improve your nutritional intake and the results are a more robust immune system, more energy, weight loss, better skin & hair, balanced hormones (that goes for men and women) and balanced blood sugar levels.
Come in and see our nutritionist Dr Jane Jamieson and find out how you can improve your health.
