What Is Nutritional Therapy?
It is the application of evidence-based science to promote excellent health. Nutritional Therapy can help those seeking help with chronic conditions, but also those wishing to achieve and maintain health and wellbeing.
Our health depends on the lifelong interplay of dietary intake, environmental input and genetics.
Nutrient imbalances and environmental factors can influence our genes. They can also have a detrimental effect on our health, which in turn can lead to disease.
Specific nutrients are essential for the body to function at its best. Without these nutrients the body can malfunction, metabolic processes can be impacted and signs and symptoms can develop. Indeed, chronic conditions are the result of a gradual decline in the optimal functioning of the body’s systems.
The aim of Nutritional Therapy is to identify deficiencies, excesses and imbalances in your body, and work with you to correct them, and resolve symptoms.
Nutritional Therapy involves us working together in a therapeutic partnership with my support and guidance. We jointly create nutrition and lifestyle plans which are aimed at long-term health, so once you understand what is needed for your body to function at its best you will always have this knowledge.
What is possible?
When the focus is addressing the root cause of signs and symptoms, correcting deficiencies and imbalances, decreasing our body’s exposure to detrimental environmental factors the body can self-correct and begin to deliver optimum performance.
