What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy combines the latest nutritional science with a personalised approach to offer targeted support for health and wellbeing

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is a complementary therapy, and is based on scientific evidence which can be used to enhance and optimise an individual's health and wellbeing.

Combining simple nutritional advice with small lifestyle changes could result in better health, improved sleep, weight loss and increased energy.

Nutrients within our food help us to grow, repair, support, function and thrive. 

Supporting the body nutritionally, physically and emotionally is essential for a healthy and fulfilled lifestyle. 

No two people share the same nutritional status, therefore a personalised approach is essential for a successful outcome.

Functional Medicine

Nutritional Therapy is based around the Functional medicine model.

Functional medicine seeks to find the root cause of symptoms, and uses these symptoms as indicators of underlying imbalances within the bodies systems, such as digestive, endocrine and immune system. 
 
From a Functional medicine perspective, our body systems are interconnected, therefore, an imbalance in one system may lead to imbalance in others. Conventional medicine generally makes a diagnosis based upon a patients symptoms and will aim to treat the symptoms with pharmaceuticals or other treatments available via the NHS.
 
By gaining a greater understanding of a persons individual genetics, health history, lifestyle and diet coupled with a understanding of how each body system is functioning provides insight into the potential root cause of the symptoms a person may be experiencing.
