What is nutritional therapy and how does it work?

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

Nutritional therapy is an evidence based expertise and offers a powerful tool that can help optimise your vitality, performance and quality of life. It includes a range of options to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. Functional tests can help explore underlying root causes, monitor improvement and help with a more targeted approach.

A personalised approach offers individual support based on a 7-day food diary, full health history, current symptoms and life style and aims for sustainable habits that provide a nutritional balance to improve and maintain overall health.

Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary therapy. Registered Practitioners are registrants on a Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) accredited register held by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Please note that nutritional therapy does not diagnose or treat medical conditions and is not considered a replacement for medical advice. People with 'red flag' signs or symptoms will
be advised to consult with their medical professional. Working alongside a medical professional or other healthcare professionals is always an option.
