Nutritional therapy aims to encourage the body’s natural healing mechanisms to support and help prevent disease, through the holistic application of nutritional science. Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations are support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health and tolerance to a broad range of food groups. Nutrition is a cornerstone of health and recovery, many people find that their well-being and recovery from all types of illness are improved when utilising an individualised approach to food selection.
What do I need to do?
Prior to your consultation you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire and a 3 day food diary. Through careful analysis of your nutrition and lifestyle, your health history, genetic predispositions, environmental inputs and physiological processes we will aim to identify what elements may be contributing to your symptoms and ill health.
Further laboratory tests may be recommended to determine levels of nutrients, hormones, toxic minerals or possible food allergies or intolerances. You will be provided with your Nutrition and Lifestyle Programme tailored to your specific needs and circumstances using foods and specific nutrients to help optimise physiological, emotive, cognitive and physical function.
