Nutritional Therapy

Helping you gain control of your health and wellbeing by making more educated food and lifestyle choices. Restoring the balance of body and mind.

Overview

Introduction

It is not about depriving yourself, but to help you form a relationship around food to suit your individual needs by becoming more informed of the nutrient value of food and how your body is working and utilising those nutrients.

Areas of Focus…

negative habits

imbalance

It is not only what we eat and drink that can cause imbalance but also how the body utilises the vital nutrients that they contain.

ROOT CAUSES

Working to identify root causes rather than just treating symptoms.

Lifestyle

Stress, sleep, lifestyle and emotional health, along with toxin exposure, are all key factors that need to be assessed.

Chronic conditions 

Chronic conditions can be supported and improved significantly with Nutritional Therapy.

health & wellbeing

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is a recognised complementary medicine using the application of nutrition science to assess and identify potential nutritional and biochemical imbalances and understand how they may be affecting your current state of health.

Some of the body systems analysed for potential imbalances:

  • Gastrointestinal function – digestion and absorption of nutrients
  • Liver function – processing of toxins
  • Blood sugar level control
  • Hormone regulation, such as sex hormones, adrenals and thyroid
  • Immune system and inflammatory processes
  • Metabolism of nutrients for energy production
  • Nervous system health and regulation of brain chemicals
  • Musculo-skeletal health

Why is Nutritional Therapy so relevant now?

Many of us lack the basic raw materials from our food and drink to function at our best. Intensive farming, pollution, stress, stimulants and an over-reliance on processed foods are just some of the reasons for us being deficient in vital nutrients.

It is important to understand the basics of healthy eating but also to recognise that foods which can be good for one person may not be good for another. Many of us eat a supposedly ‘healthy’ diet but still suffer with symptoms such as poor digestion, energy slumps, headaches, cravings and reliance on stimulants.

Factors such as toxin exposure (from bacteria, parasites or chemicals), impaired digestion or absorption, hormonal imbalance, brain chemical imbalance or an overburdened immune system can all impact how we utilise nutrients.

A nutritional therapist will work to identify potential imbalances that may be contributing to your health problems.
