Our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves and a Nutritional Therapist is trained to provide you with the tools to help to achieve this. Nutritional therapy is based on the scientific principle that food, as nature intended it, provides the nutrients needed to heal the body and to help bring us back to a state of optimum health and vitality.
Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and to understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. A Nutritional Therapist sees the body as a whole, integrated system rather than separating it into different organs, focussing on causes rather than symptoms of ill-health and using lifestyle changes as central part of your recovery. While it is still scientifically evidence based, and does not shun conventional medicine where necessary, nutritional therapy can be a very effective and powerful tool.
With nutritional therapy you will work with a therapist to design a realistic programme that will help you reach your health goals. The approach is personal and tailored to your specific needs and environment.
Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations include support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood-sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health, alleviating hormonal imbalances and intolerance to a broad range of food groups.
In order to feel and look your best, and to live your life to the full, you have to be putting the right fuel into your body. When you work with me, we will take the latest scientific research and combine it with your unique needs to develop a healthy lifestyle plan. With the correct nutrition as a base, we will also incorporate supplements, and exercise recommendations, mindful eating techniques, stress management and supportive sleep tips, in addition to helping you bring the enjoyment of cooking into your busy life!
Food is so much more than just a source of calories. Food is information for our bodies. Foods can harm or heal, and you get to make that decision every day via what you put on your plate.
