Nutritional therapy involves applying nutrition science and using a wide range of clinical assessment and diagnostic tools, including comprehensive case history, physical examination and functional testing (if required) to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances. Then to understand how these contribute to an individual’s health concerns and presenting symptoms. I use a functional medicine approach and personalised nutrition suggestions to improve diet, digestion and absorption of nutrients, while providing education about nutrition, support in the form of guided shops and recipe ideas, and supplementation where required to achieve optimum health and wellbeing as quickly as possible. This includes hormonal, neurological and immune function.
Why use nutritional therapy?
Some people want to learn more about healthy eating, others want to know how to prevent chronic diseases that they may be susceptible to, how to lose weight so it stays off, or how to manage symptoms and find relief. Most people have access to a ton of information but aren’t sure how to pull it together in a way that is relevant to them. The solution? Consult an expert. A tailored approach is required as every person is unique and has their own requirements and lifestyle commitments.
Typically, priorities include support to achieve optimum energy levels and blood sugar balance, improve stress resilience, tolerance to food groups, gastrointestinal health and emotional wellbeing.
