What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy is a drug-free approach that treats the whole person. When attempting to bring about positive change for the client, nutritional therapy takes into account a wide range of factors; such as the individual’s diet, digestion, nutrient absorption, levels of stress and medical history.
Inappropriate diet, stress, poor digestion, malabsorption, and inadequate toxin elimination can manifest in many symptoms of ill-health and disease. The nutritional therapist will work with the individual to achieve a tailored approach in order to promote control over their own health. In doing so, body system imbalances can be given the support they need and health can be reclaimed.
Nutritional therapy can work well alongside other therapies and orthodox medical treatment.
Who can benefit?
Nutritional therapy can be of benefit for anyone who wants to review their current diet in order to simply feel healthier, more energised, and have more vitality. It aims to address the root cause of presenting symptoms and recognizes that conditions may have seemingly unrelated causes, so can also help to alleviate symptoms associated with existing conditions or complaints.
The consultation process
The initial consultation will last up to one and a half hours. A detailed case history is taken which will cover aspects including: medical history, past and present dietary patterns, digestion, sleeping patterns, and emotional and physical stressors. Clients will be asked to bring along a three-day food diary to assist the assessment process.
At the end of the initial consultation, appropriate dietary and lifestyle recommendations will be made that can help address nutrient imbalances, relieve presenting symptoms and offer support that can improve long term health.
Most conditions should respond well to between 1-3 consultations. Chronic or long-term health problems, however, may require further support.
