What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is a science. A Functional Science meaning it is based on how the body works, and what the body needs to function.. that is.. the whole body!

Where possible it is evidence based and extensively researched. It can best be described as 'application of nutritional assessment and personalisation for optimising bodily function through the life stages to enhance wellness and vitality in a person'.

From personal experience and scientific evidence I can assure you that a compromised digestion affects our nutrition levels, this in turn compromises how the body responds, each and everyone of us will respond differently by way of little signs or symptoms.

You might experience new or different reactions that don't seem to be connected or you may be witnessing changes in vitality of a loved one, all of which may be subtle signs of altered nutritional state. Nutritional Therapy compliments your existing healthcare. It is not a replacement for medical advice. Please contact your GP for health conditions.

Specific functional testing can be recommended if appropriate and is often used in Nutritional Therapy to underpin and justify the 'whys' of dietary recommendations. Tightly regulated approved laboratories are used and will incur additional costs.

The practice of Nutritional Therapy is tightly regulated by BANT the (British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) of which I am a member. For more information see link. I comply with the government approved CNHC (Complimentary Natural Health Council) which is our professional practice committee regulating our codes of conduct, our performance measures and ethics. For more information see link.

Symptom Map

A functional approach to supporting your health is based on your health history, so the more you can share on the questionnaire, the better the picture we can work with!

I am looking in particular for 3 aspects to your health history. 1) Inherited Conditions 2) A Trigger Point and 3) An Underlying Deficiency, Sensitivity or Imbalance that is preventing you from getting well.

Signs and symptoms on your questionnaire appear like a map or scatter graph to me, which then informs how and where we are best to start to support you nutritionally.

Coaching for change

The therapy element of my work is often the most challenging as the emphasis is on you to understand not only why the dietary changes will help you to feel better and eliminate those unwanted symptoms, but how to incorporate them into your everyday life without fuss!

Changes may not need to be as severe as the common diet approach would have you believe, eating well is not about punishment and reward
