What is Nutritional Therapy?
The food we choose to eat is our most basic way of fuelling our bodies, giving us health and vitality.
Nutritional therapy is a way of looking at the whole person to explore diet and lifestyle factors which may be contributing to both health and illness.
It uses up-to-date and evidence-based advice to provide personalised, in depth nutrition plans based on agreed and achievable goals. There are no diets, detoxes or quick fixes – just real, practical guidance to help you achieve sustainable results.
At some time or another, we may all fall into less than ideal eating and drinking habits or we may become unwell and need to address the way food could be contributing to ill health.
Nutritional Therapy involves working with you as a unique individual to give you the knowledge and confidence to choose foods which maximise your health and vitality. It provides you with ongoing support to make meaningful, long term improvements to your diet and lifestyle.
What to expect?
Initial consultations (usually 90 mins) are based on an in-depth questionnaire and food diary sent to you prior to the appointment. We will devise an agreed set of objectives and goals with a specific plan, written information, shopping lists and recipes (where appropriate). Harnessing the power of food and good nutrition is the primary focus but good quality supplements and appropriate testing may be recommended where necessary.
Follow-up appointments (usually 45 mins) allow for progress to be monitored, goals to be celebrated or re-aligned and for further support to be arranged.
