Nutritional Therapy uses a combination of good nutrition and carefully targeted supplements to bring about a return to health.
Everyone has different dietary needs based upon factors such as their own individual make-up, nutritional deficiencies that may have developed and toxic overload. Nutritional Therapy aims to support with food and supplements to cleanse, rebalance and strengthen the body.
Without good nutrition the body can never be truly healthy as nutrition provides the building blocks for every part of the body and every bodily function is dependent upon nutrients. Nutritional Therapy can assist a wide range of conditions such as
- Food cravings and allergies
- Heartburn and acid reflux
- Hormone imbalances including thyroid
- Skin conditions – acne, eczema
- Heart disease, blood pressure and cholesterol
- Weight loss and eating disorders
The initial consultation looks at present and past diet, present symptoms and past conditions and their treatment, as well as lifestyle and family medical history. From these findings the patient will be given a dietary prescription together with a purpose directed supplement programme if necessary.
