Nutritional Therapy is the application of wholesome, personal nutrition plans to achieve optimum health and wellbeing.
Good nutrition is the foundation for great health. What we eat has a powerful and long lasting effect on our well being. Our bodies are built, repaired and fuelled by the food and drink we choose to consume. A Nutritional Therapist can help us understand how our current diet and lifestyle may be contributing to our health concerns, and how by adjusting what we eat, and therefore our nutrient intake, concerns around conditions of ill health can be alleviated or prevented, helping us to look and feel fantastic and perform at our best.
Nutritional Therapists recognise that we are all unique in terms of our biology, lifestyle and preferences, and therefore in our individual nutritional needs. What suits one person may not necessarily suit another. For this reason, every Nutritional Therapy treatment plan is tailored to meet the individual specific nutritional requirements, likes, dislikes, lifestyle and practical considerations of the person it is designed for. Supplementation and diagnostic testing may also be recommended where appropriate.
A person does not have to have any underlying health condition to benefit from Nutritional Therapy! It is equally relevant for those who are looking for specialist advice to support an aspect of their lifestyle such as those looking for sports nutrition, weight management or specific disease prevention advice and also for those simply wishing to pursue a healthier lifestyle and feel great.
Nutritional Therapy is suitable for all at whatever stage in life. It can support management and prevention of a variety of conditions. Some of the most common areas seen in clinic include:
