NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.

Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

The Functional Medicine model

I follow the Functional Medicine approach to supporting health. Functional Medicine involves identifying and addressing the root cause/s of disease. For example, depression may have a number of causes such as: vitamin D deficiency, omega-3 fatty acid deficiency, blood sugar imbalance, or hypothyroidism. Or, depression may be one of many symptoms, including arthritis, diabetes and heart disease; the root cause of which may be inflammation.

By addressing the root cause of your condition, it becomes possible to improve your health from the ground up. Lasting health comes from regaining balance, not temporarily relieving symptoms. However I can also look to support any symptoms at the same time, depending on your condition.
