WHAT IS Nutritional Therapy?
Scientifically, Nutritional Therapy is an evidence based approach to support health through individually devised changes in nutrition and lifestyle.
Nutritional Therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to symptoms of ill health, both mental and physical. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards optimum health.
It may become confusing when so much information about the “best diet” is bombarded at us from the media. The point is, because each person is unique, no one diet may be perfect for everybody. Our genetic makeup and lifestyles may have a direct impact on the nutrients that our bodies use. Chemicals and molecules in food may have differences in impact on the body’s processes.
Nutritional therapy considers the whole picture of a person, rather than a set of isolated symptoms, taking the time to unpick your current and specific health story. This is the key to a creating an individual programme of recommendations, to motivate you to sustain a positive and effective outcome.
