Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is a form of Complimentary Medicine which can help with many different conditions. It seeks to alleviate or prevent illness through dietary modification. 'We are what we eat' is remarkably true. 90% of the body renews itself every 3 months and the building materials come from the food we eat. This is why good nutrition is paramount to good health.

Most of us try to eat a healthy diet but get confusing messages from the media about what we should and shouldn't eat and which supplements we should be taking.

Prior to your first visit

Prior to the consultation, you will be asked to complete a simple questionnaire detailing your symptoms and health history together with dietary and lifestyle habits.   You will need to return this prior to your first visit.

Your first visit

The initial consultation lasts about an 1 hour and a half. At the end of the first consultation you will have an initial programme to start working with.  This will usually involve dietary changes plus supplementation or herbs to help support the programme.

Follow up

A follow-up consultation usually occurs about 4 weeks later and lasts approximately 30 minutes. This will involve a review of the progress so far plus formulating a further programme if necessary

About Nutritional Therapy

The Nutritional Therapist will provide you with an individual programme, suggesting foods that may improve your health and if necessary recommend nutrients or herbs to help rebalance your body and strive towards optimal health.

Nutritional Therapists believe that everyone functions differently, has different nutritional requirements and tolerates foods in different ways. To help understand more about how you function, biochemical testing is sometimes used to help target the appropriate treatment.

Most conditions may be helped through Nutritional Therapy.  Some of the most commonly encountered conditions are:

  • Low energy or chronic fatigue
  • Headaches and migraines
  • IBS or other digestive disorders
  • Weight Control
  • Reoccurring thrush or cystitis
  • Male and female Infertility
  • PMT
  • Menopause
  • Frequent colds and infections
  • Childhood hyperactivity
  • Arthritis or joint pain
  • Acne, eczema or psoriasis
