What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy assesses the connection between all the body systems and how decreased function in one can affect your overall health. The impact of your environment, emotional state, sleep and stress levels are all considered, as these are known to influence our ability to heal and repair. By assessing your diet and lifestyle from all angles, a Nutritional Therapist not only aims to reduce any current symptoms, but also addresses any underlying causes, supporting you to become as well as you can possibly be.
Nutritional Therapy is also beneficial when there is no current “ill health” state. A holistic assessment transforms simple dietary and lifestyles tips into guidance, which can then be implemented long term. I advocate a food first approach but may also consider therapeutic supplements depending on your particular needs.
