Nutritional Therapy

What is Nutritional Therapy and how can it help me?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition and health science to enable individuals to optimise their health potential. It is a client centred and a systems based biology approach that focuses on finding the root cause of ill health. 

Nutritional Therapy may help to alleviate a wide range of conditions and support recovery using food and – where appropriate – dietary supplements. It is intended to compliment conventional medicine and to support your medical practitioner’s diagnosis and treatment plan. Dietary changes may be made under the supervision of a medical doctor.

A fully-qualified Nutritional Therapist holds a minimum of a three-year Diploma in Nutritional Therapy and is trained in biochemistry, physiology and pathology as well as supervised clinical practice. Nutritional Therapists are qualified to work in private practice and to see clients on an individual or group basis.

How can Nutritional therapy Benefit me?

Nutritional Therapy is suitable for everyone, young and old, for those who would like to alleviate specific symptoms, as well as those who would just like to improve their overall health and wellbeing. In a nutshell, Nutritional Therapy helps you to identify the foods that make you look and feel your best.
