What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is a complementary or alternative medicine. It is a powerful route to embrace healing as well as prevention of any health concerns. It is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional Therapy incorporates genetic science, our biological body systems uniqueness and how they are related and affect each other. It provides an understanding of how dietary, lifestyle and environmental factors influence emergence and progression of disease.
Nutritional Therapy assesses and identifies potential nutritional imbalances and understands how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. It is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with or consult a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other suitably qualified healthcare professionals.
Nutritional Therapy is an evidence based individual approach to healthcare that considers the biological individuality of each client. It aims to stimulate the body's own healing mechanisms by personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes. Nutritional protocols aim to restore biochemical imbalances by incorporating nutrient rich foods and supplements which are recommended on an individual basis rather than a ‘one size fits all’.
