What is Nutritional Therapy?
Are you confused by endless contradictory messages on what to eat for optimum health? Are you frustrated by the constant stream of new diets claiming to change your life? Does walking through the aisles in a supermarket makes you break out in a cold sweat because food has become more of a threat rather than a pleasure?
If you can say ‘yes’ to any of the above questions and if you are looking for a simple, enjoyable way of eating that will help you put the spark back into your life, then Nutritional Therapy is for you.
Nutritional therapy is a proactive, science based approach to advising people how to make informed choices in relation to diet, lifestyle and nutritional supplements. All recommendations are professionally tailored to each person’s circumstances and requirements with the aim of managing chronic disease and/or promoting optimum health.
Nutritional Therapy does not diagnose health conditions nor does it treat them. It is the appliance of nutritional science in preventative and therapeutic healthcare, which can involve clinical testing if required.
Your therapist is trained in human physiology and biochemistry, and where appropriate can liaise with your medical doctor.
The benefits of Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy
You are not what you eat. You are what you eat, digest, assimilate, and eliminate!
Nutritional therapy is a thorough investigation of your bodily systems and offers a simple and realistic approach to health and life balance. Nutritional therapy is the application of nutritional science which comprehensively assesses the individual’s diet, health and lifestyle to promote health and wellbeing and to prevent disease.
Your nutritional therapist will help you to address all of the following conditions:
Fatigue / tiredness
High blood pressure
It can be difficult to eat healthily, and a nutritional therapist will help the client to do this in a non-judgemental and personalised way, taking into account the client’s current lifestyle. What you eat should not only be wholesome and right for your individual needs but should also support your body and digestive system so that it can receive and make use of the fuel you provide it with.
In this way, nutritional therapy supports the individual to develop a healthy diet and life balance.
