What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutritional science in the promotion of good health, peak performance and sense of well being. Nutritional Therapy will identify nutritional imbalances and how these contribute to symptoms that prevent the attainment of optimum health.
This approach allows the Nutritional Therapist to work with people on many levels by addressing their personal nutritional imbalances and supporting the body towards achieving optimum health.
Why Use Nutritional Therapy?
Some people simply want to check that they are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. Others may want to lose weight or need help with their symptoms.
Nutritional Therapists recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
- Are you confused about what a healthy diet is?
- Are you lacking in energy or vitality?
- Are you having trouble sleeping?
- Do you have digestive issues or suffer with Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
- Do you need support with heart health?
- Do you have diabetes?
- Do you have eczema or psoriasis?
- Do you suffer from headaches or migraines?
- Do you need to lose weight?
- Are you training for a particular sporting event?
A Nutritional Therapist can help you address all of these issues in order to achieve optimum health through good nutrition.
What To Expect From A Consultation?
A Nutritional Therapist’s work starts with a client consultation that involves:
- Detailed analysis of your dietary and nutritional intake
- Detailed health and family case history
- A strategy for health – linking symptoms to nutritional imbalances and providing support and encouragement to change diet and lifestyle
- Action Plan – personalised advice for diet and lifestyle changes
- Supplement Programme – details of any recommended nutritional supplements if required
- The recommendation of clinical tests if needed, to help ascertain any suspected underlying conditions
How it Works
The client completes a three day food diary prior to their appointment and brings this to the first consultation. This initial consultation usually lasts one hour following which a personalised nutrition plan is emailed to the client within a week, together with details of any supplements that may be advised.
After following the nutrition plan for approximately 4-6 weeks, the client returns for a 45 minute follow-up appointment.
Most clients will require 2-3 appointments, although this may vary.
Skype consultations are also available. Please telephone 07887 880190 for further information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
