What is nutritional therapy all about?

Nutritional Therapy applies the science of nutrition to promote health and well-being. By looking at the root cause of a symptom, foods are promoted that provide the right ingredients to help your body heal or improve vitality.

This approach means that Nutritional Therapists can offer personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations. If you look around at all the differently shaped faces that genetics has given us, behind all those different faces is a different physiology.

 

This means that some of us are more predisposed to certain diseases whilst some of us are better equipped to stay healthy. Nutritional Therapists evaluate each individual and tailor their unique nutrition and lifestyle programmes accordingly. Nutritional Therapy is not a replacement for medical advice. More often we work alongside other healthcare professionals to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.
