Nutritional therapy is the application of nutritional science in the promotion of optimal health, peak performance and healthy ageing.
Working through your daily diet and tracking any symptoms that you may be experiencing is the first step.
Functional testing allows us to explore underlying imbalances more accurately allowing us to further target your support.
We then tailor your personal program according to your symptoms and test results, providing a comprehensive nutritional strategy, which may include food plans and a supplement protocol to support optimal vitality.
Nutritional therapy seeks to identify possible imbalances in the body through a variety of tools, and understand how these may contribute to presenting symptoms and health concerns. This allows for a very personalised approach focusing on what is important for, and most relevant to, each individual client. Nutritional therapy recommends an individual nutrition and lifestyle programme, which aims to address the imbalances.
Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to health care have been shown to support all the major systems of the body, including skeletal, muscular, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, immune and endocrine.
Nutritional therapy is recognised as complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions as well as those looking to optimise their health and well-being.
Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with concerning signs or symptoms to their medical professional. Nutritional therapy very often works alongside the medical profession and practitioners will communicate with any medical consultants that the client may be currently working with.
What to expect
I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation to gain an understanding of where you are at and how I can help you move forward.
Before the first consultation the you will be requested to complete a health questionnaire, which also contains a three-day food diary. An initial consultation lasts 90 minutes during which we further discusse your current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment to date.
Your medical history, family history, lifestyle and exercise levels will also be discussed.
Follow-up consultations are flexible and are scheduled anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks depending on support needed.
These aim to monitor progress and make any corresponding changes to your programme.
