What Is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is a science-based, therapeutic approach to supporting optimum wellbeing, by way of dietary and lifestyle interventions. Rather than just blocking or dulling the manifestation of localised symptoms, Nutritional Therapy takes a whole-body overview to seeking out the root cause of health concerns by focusing on the intricate biochemical reactions that exist uniquely within each of us. Factors such as diet, sleep, stress, exercise, environmental toxins (from cosmetics to pesticides) and genetics can all impact on these reactions. The aim is to reduce any negative impact and enhance the positive impact that each of these factors has on your wellbeing. Subtle though it may seem, the combined effect can be life changing. With such a variety of factors to consider, each client is assessed individually, recognising that their make-up is unique and that ‘one size’ does not fit all. Nutritional Therapy is suitable for everybody, from the young to the elderly and from the sick to those individuals simply looking to optimise their wellbeing.
What is a registered Nutritional Therapist?
A registered Nutritional Therapist is professionally trained in the application of nutrition and lifestyle medicine to optimise the integrity of the body and mind. Registered Nutritional Therapists are qualified to offer supplementation and functional laboratory testing as part of your programme. Nutritional Therapy works well in conjunction with conventional medical approaches and your chosen therapist can work with your doctor to support any dietary and lifestyle considerations during your recovery from ill health.
