Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is a natural healthcare system that encourages the body's own healing through the promotion of a healthy diet and lifestyle

How does it work?

Nutritional therapy helps people on many levels by addressing nutritional imbalances and supporting the body towards maintaining health through the promotion of healthy eating and lifestyle

Why use Nutritional Therapy?

You may simply want to check that you are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. Alternatively, you may want to lose weight or get help with your symptoms. Nutritional therapy practitioners recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach

Dietary Information and Nutrition Advice

The focus of our sessions together will be on helping you to improve and sustain an optimum level of health and well being by finding new and better ways of eating that is right for you. We will work together to enable you to make the changes you agree are appropriate and achievable, and progress is made at a pace that is right for you. A summary of recommendations and advice will be given in writing

Nutritional Supplements

Although the focus of our sessions will be on food, advice and specific recommendations for nutritional supplements may be given. Supplements can help to balance nutritional levels that may be associated with your symptoms and provide extra nourishment to help promote health

Nutritional Health Testing

Additional health tests may be recommended to investigate nutrient or hormone levels, food sensitivities, levels of gut bacteria, parasites or yeasts, or to review digestive function. These are non-invasive tests from stool, urine or salvia samples, or may involve a blood test. Home test kits are used and samples sent to the laboratories for analysis. Results are returned to your therapist, normally within 14 days. Results will then be discussed at a follow-up consultation

Nutritional Therapy Consultations – What to Expect

Before the first consultation, you are asked to complete a short health and nutrition questionnaire. The initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes. The practitioner evaluates individual needs and uses the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme. Follow up consultations are generally after four weeks in order to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation
