What Is Nutritional Therapy?
Functional Nutritional therapy uses current science and evidence-based research to prevent disease, alleviate illness and promote optimal health. It identifies and treats the root cause of a health problem, not just the symptoms. It takes into consideration the web-like connections of all bodily systems and recognises each person as an individual, working with their own unique physiology.
It uses carefully chosen dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements and lifestyle advice to help maintain or restore health to the body and the mind. These recommendations are professionally tailored to each person’s individual requirements and goals and are suitable for all ages and conditions.
It works very well alongside conventional medicine . It enables you to feel and look better by making the right food choices and gives you the tools to help make healthy choices in the future.
Nutritional therapy is about what you can eat, more than what you can’t. It is about finding foods that you enjoy and making small, easy, sustainable changes to your diet in an achievable way.
You will be surprised at the differences you can experience from making small changes. You will be provided with practical advice, recipes and ongoing support to help make these changes that promote optimum health.
