About Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition and lifestyle medicine sciences in the promotion of health and individual care.
Nutritional therapy is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis; anyone with persistent digestive issues or those wishing to support an autoimmune condition, as well as those looking to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Nutritional therapists assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. An individual’s health journey, health goals and dietary preferences are taken into consideration.
Practitioners consider individuals to be unique and recommend personalised programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. The practitioner may use functional tests to inform the recommendations that are based on unique biological individuality.
