Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional therapy is the therapeutic application of nutrition and the latest scientific research in order to optimise physical and mental health, alleviate a wide range of health conditions and can play a role in the prevention of disease.

Nutritional therapists take a holistic, functional medicine approach, considering the body as a whole and addressing the underlying causes of problems, not just the symptoms.

Each person is considered as an individual with unique dietary and nutritional requirements subject to age, gender, genetics, dietary habits, environmental and many other factors.  A nutritional therapist will consider an individual’s health, medical history, nutritional status and where possible test results before suggesting specific actions to redress nutritional imbalances and support optimum health.

Recommendations may include changes to the client’s diet and lifestyle, natural detoxification, optimising digestive function, identifying and removing toxins and allergens and the appropriate and safe use of nutritional supplements.

Whilst some health problems require specific medication, a wide range of health concerns including chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, headaches, energy loss, insomnia, stress and depression, weight management, skin conditions and hormonal imbalances may be alleviated with nutritional therapy.
