What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutrition Therapy is a science-based, complementary medicine that aims to promote and optimize health, peak performance and disease prevention by application of nutrition science.

 

It is a comprehensive approach to health that helps to identify potential nutritional imbalances and lifestyle factors that may lead to development of suboptimum health. Nutritional Therapist work with clients to devise a dietary and lifestyle programme that supports the client’s specific needs.

 

 

A personalised and holistic approach

 

It recognizes that we all have unique health requirements and thus It's not a 'one size fits all' approach but a tailored and personalized nutrition plan for each client, that takes into consideration their personal health history, laboratory tests, symptoms, dietary habits and lifestyle.

 

The environment we are surrounded by, our genetics, the life pressures and the food we consume may contribute to the depletion of the vital nutrients our body cells require to grow, repair and heal as well as to the disruption of a very delicate balance between various systems in our body. All these may lead to various health problems. The research driven dietary and lifestyle changes may provide the tools to support your whole body in regaining this balance.

 

As a Nutrition Therapist, I will assess your diet, symptoms, lifestyle and health history to find out what nutrients you may be deficient in and what body systems may be imbalanced leading to various health concerns. The findings will be explained to you and an achievable plan of action tailored to meet your needs will be agreed with you.


I take a holistic approach to support your body by looking for the root causes of your symptoms rather than trying to mask them. I will guide you in your personal journey towards your optimum wellbeing explaining what impact certain foods and lifestyle choices may have on your health. This will allow you to make long lasting changes and take better control of your health and wellbeing.

 

 

Nutrition Therapy is complementary to your medical healthcare and therefore, it should not be treated
as a replacement for a medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
Always speak to your medical health care provider if you have any health concerns.

Realistic Expectations


While most people see some benefits from Nutrition therapy relatively quickly, it is important to understand that the longer you have been suffering from an ailment the longer it may take for you to feel better. Everybody is different and may respond to the protocols in a different way. Nutrition Therapy is not ‘a pill for an ill’ but a lifestyle change and an empowering journey giving you an insight into how your body works and what it may need to thrive.
