What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutritional science using a range of clinical assessment and diagnostic tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and how these may contribute to an individuals health concerns and presenting symptoms. The tools used in Nutritional Therapy include a comprehensive case history, physical examination and functional testing (if appropriate).
I use a functional medicine approach and put together personalised nutrition plans to recommend improvements to diet and lifestyle, while providing education about nutrition, support in the form of guided shopping, recipe ideas and supplementation where required to achieve optimum health and wellbeing.
There is more and more research being done into the benefits of eating a healthy nutritious diet which is why I attend seminars and webinars to continue my learning.
