What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy is a complementary medicine that uses nutrition science and the latest evidence to optimise your health. I use food, lifestyle changes, supplements and functional tests to guide you in reaching your health goal.
Nutritional therapy is not a ‘quick fix’ or a ‘one size fits all’. It doesn’t use fad diets. Instead we find a way together to use food and nutrition to support life-long good health and well-being.
Who is Nutritional Therapy for?
Nutritional therapy is for people who would like to take more personal control over their own health and well-being. I work with clients of all ages with IBS and digestive issues and those looking to gain more energy and to generally feel their best. Nutritional therapy works alongside conventional medical practice to support the body and mind through nutrition. Clients are motivated to make changes to their diets and lifestyle and sometimes carry out testing to address the issues that may lie beneath their on-going health complaints.
How it works
Everyone is unique in his or her nutrition, diet and lifestyle needs. Typically I see clients with numerous health issues that have developed over several years. When it comes to supporting you with nutrition, we don’t just look at food. We look at your health and well-being through birth to the current day. We discuss signs and symptoms, lifestyle, stress and emotion, exercise and food intolerances. It can be a challenge to change the way we eat and so I provide as much support and coaching as you need to help you during this process. I suggest we work together for at least 3 months, working on what you eat, how you eat, and lifestyle changes. In more complex cases we may work together for up to year. However, the aim is that after I have supported you, you will have reached your health goal and be able to manage your health and well-being with nutrition independently. Nutritional therapy is about investing in yourself.
