About Nutritional Therapy
Each of us is unique! We all have different genetics, environments, lifestyles and preferences, and there is no one size fits all approach to optimal health. Nutrition and lifestyle factors, including exercise, sleep and stress levels, can all have an impact on our health and pre-disposition to disease.
Registered Nutritional Therapists consider each client as an individual, taking a holistic view of the body and the interaction between systems. Engaging with clients in a clinical setting, the therapist will work to understand the potential imbalances in diet and lifestyle, and identify strategies to address them. Applying evidence-based principles of nutrition, therapists identify a tailored, individual approach to diet and lifestyle to optimise health and wellbeing.
Nutritional therapy can support in the optimisation of a variety of areas, including digestive issues, hormone imbalances, skin complaints and poor energy levels. Therapists use a functional medicine approach to identify the potential underlying causes of health issues, rather than simply addressing symptoms.
Nutritional therapy is a complementary approach and if appropriate, a therapist will work alongside your GP or other health care professionals to ensure a comprehensive approach to your health. Concerns about potentially serious symptoms would always be referred back to your GP.
