What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.
Nutritional therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms, goals and health concerns. Using this approach allows me to work with my clients to address nutritional imbalances and help to support the body to heal itself.
Nutritional Therapy is widely 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 well-being. As a registered nutritional therapist I consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. I 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. I regularly work alongside medical professionals and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in my client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided, if and when needed.
