Nutritional Therapy

 

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.


Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.


Nutritional therapy is most relevant for individuals with a chronic health issues as well as those looking for support to maintain and enhance their own health and vitality.

Some people may simply want to check that they are on the right track with regards to healthy eating. Others may struggle to lose weight, feel stressed and tired too often, experience digestive problems, disturbed sleep pattern or lack of energy.

A nutrition expert can make a highly personalised diet and wellness plan for you to help you achieve your health potentials. 

Please note that the number of visits required is dependent on your goals and your progress. It can be discussed and agreed as we go along.

*If you are suffering from any health condition you should contact you GP first. Functional tests look at how well your body is working.
