Ruth is a diplomate nutrition therapist. In her clinic, she treats different types of life style diseases such as obesity, diabetes, arthritis and hypertension. Ruth has a three months treatment program that consists of a diet as well as advices about exercising, sleeping habits and other life style related issues. Traditional herbal medicine is also used in the treatment. During the ten years Ruth has been in business, the clinic has treated more than 6 000 patients.
Uganda might be mostly associated with infectious diseases such as Malaria and HIV. But thanks to medical progress and increased living standards, the problem with these diseases is declining. Unfortunately, higher living standard and increased life length is associated with an increase in life style related diseases. Therefore, there is a growing demand for competences such as Ruth’s. One of Ruth’s dreams is to start a school for nutrition therapists so that she can share her knowledge with more people.
