What is nutritional therapy?

Good nutrition is essential for good health, but you don’t necessarily have to deny yourself the pleasures in life to achieve this. Nutritional therapy is a combination of naturopathy (natural, drug-free medicine) and science (nutritional and biochemistry), with the aim of returning the patient to better health.

How does it work?

Nutritional therapy is holistic, treating the body as a whole - addressing the causes of problems, rather than merely relieving symptoms. Following an in-depth health questionnaire and an energetic scan that includes evaluation of organs, acupuncture meridiens, digestive system, food sensitivities and nutritional status an individual treatment plan is developed.

By discovering the underlying causes of a patient’s health concerns Sue, our Nutritionist, aims to give you the expert advice and support that you need to help you realise your full health potential.

Who is it for?

Being optimally nourished can help you increase your energy levels, enhance your physical and mental performance and boost your immunity.

What can nutritional therapy help with?

Nutritional therapy is used to help with a wide range of conditions, including:

  • allergies and food intolerance
  • digestive issues
  • lack of energy
  • stress, anxiety and depression
  • poor memory or cocentration
  • skin and joint issues
  • immune issues
  • sport and performance

Nutritional therapy looks at how nutritional status impacts directly on our
health and sense of well-being. It focuses on the fundamental underlying
factors that influence our experience of health and disease. Such as:-

  • Nutritional deficiencies and imbalances
  • Digestion and absorption of nutrients
  • Balance of flora in the digestive tract
  • Food sensitivities
  • Environmental allergies
  • Hormonal regulation
  • Elimination of environmental toxins
  • Production of energy and blood sugar control
  • Immune system function
  • Inflammatory responses
  • Structural integrity
  • Emotional and spiritual balance

All of these processes are influenced by both environmental factors and our
genetic make-up. When they are disturbed or imbalanced they lead to
symptoms, which can then lead to illness if effective interventions are not
applied. Your body has the amazing ability to heal itself - if it has the
tools that it needs to do so. Your consultation will help you to discover
the factors that you need to work on to optimise your health, wellbeing and
vitality.
