Nutritional Therapy Explained
Nutritional Therapy is based on a Functional Medicine approach which focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of your illness. The precise manifestation of an illness depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression.
Orthodox medicine often focuses on treating the symptoms of a disease. This has its place but often leads to a lifetime of medication to simply function from day to day.
A Nutritional Therapist will look at all the systems in the body and aim to identify the imbalances that are occurring. For example, it is common for an imbalance in your gut to affect your skin or cause allergies, similarly stress can have a huge impact on your hormones and your sleep patterns.
A Nutritional Therapist offers personalised diet & lifestyle advice which is tailored to your individual health needs and goals. This includes carefully chosen dietary recommendations, practical meal suggestions and recipes as well as tips on how to incorporate the changes into your lifestyle.
Nutritional Therapy is suitable for everyone, young and old, for those who would like to alleviate specific symptoms, as well as those who would just like to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
A qualified Nutritional Therapist holds a 3-year diploma in Nutritional Therapy and is trained in basic biochemistry, physiology and pathology as well as undertaking 200 hours of supervised clinical practice. As such, a Nutritional Therapist is qualified to work in private practice and see clients on a one to one or group basis.
