Nutritional Therapy

What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy involves the use of food, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplements to make improvements to your health.
Nutritional Therapists usually work with clients in private practice although GPs can and do refer their patients to us. Nutritional Therapy is a scientific discipline that requires extensive training, is nationally regulated and is used safely alongside conventional medicine. Nutritional Therapists base their clinical recommendations on respected, peer reviewed and published scientific research.

How Does Nutritional Therapy Work?
A nutritional therapist works with you to gain a full understanding of your particular health concerns. With this picture, realistic and effective changes to your everyday habits are recommended resulting in improved symptoms and wellbeing.
Before your first consultation you will be given a questionnaire to fill in. The nutritional therapist will then analyse your answers. In your first consultation, a nutritional therapist will dig deeper into your personal health, lifestyle and preferences. This kicks off the process. Gaining a good understanding of you will enables effective changes that can help you towards better health.
Although the general public are now well aware of the health benefits of healthy eating, optimal nutritional requirements can vary greatly from one person to the next. Healthy eating alone cannot take into account food intolerances, your particular health issues and your genetic predisposition, for example. A nutritional therapist will offer you a bespoke plan involving the therapeutic use of food to improve your health.
Nutritional Therapists can also access a range of functional laboratory tests that identify nutritional deficiencies and underlying causes of imbalances in the body. These tests are not normally available from a GP and include: female hormone balance tests, full thyroid screening, food intolerance testing and more. It is common for nutritional supplements to be recommended alongside dietary and lifestyle advice, although these are NOT compulsory.
