Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition and health science to enable individuals to maximise their health potential. Nutritional therapy can help alleviate a wide range of conditions and support recovery from ill health.
Nutritional therapy practitioners recognise that each person is an individual with unique dietary and nutritional requirements. These requirements depend on a number of factors, ranging from inherited strengths and weaknesses to lifestyle and environment. Nutritional therapy practitioners work with the client to assess nutritional status and functional capacity in order to manage chronic health problems and advise on disease prevention.
The practitioner will take a comprehensive client history, and may use biochemical and other types of clinical assessment to formulate an individualised nutritional therapy programme.
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 outcomes.
Nutritional therapy can work well alongside other therapies and orthodox medical treatment.
