Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health and wellbeing. It involves using a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional or physiological imbalances, to understand how they may be contributing to your symptoms.
As a Nutritional therapist I do not ‘diagnose’ or ‘treat’ disease. Instead I work with you (and other medical and healthcare professionals) to address nutritional imbalances and support the body towards optimal health.
Whilst nutritional therapy is not a replacement for medical advice, by making changes to their diet and lifestyle, many people find they are able to manage or overcome health concerns and reduce their dependence on pharmaceuticals.
Nutritional therapy is relevant if you have a chronic health condition, or if you are looking for support to enhance your health and well-being.
Trained in nutrition from a naturopathic perspective, I aim not just to alleviate your symptoms but also to identify and address the root causes of ill health and support you, the person, as a whole. Naturopathic nutrition is based on the premise that good health is more than just the absence of disease; it’s about being in optimal health, feeling the best you can, and being in control of your own life and well-being.
Working with all aspects of you as a person, looking at diet, lifestyle, genetics, environmental factors, exercise and your relationship with food, I provide personalised nutrition and lifestyle recommendations, meal plans, recipes and continuing support to help you meet your health goals. No dieting, no deprivation, no judgement or food guilt; just delicious whole foods to nourish and restore.
I identify predisposing factors, triggers, continuing drivers and future risks to your health.
Address imbalances to improve health and proactively mitigate your risks for the future.
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to nutrition. Every person is unique, both biochemically and in their relationship with food. My advice is tailored to your individual needs.
Working together in a therapeutic partnership, I aim to provide you with the knowledge you need to make healthy choices for yourself in the future.
Making meaningful long-term changes to your diet can be a gradual process. It doesn’t happen over night and nobody eats perfectly all the time (not even nutritional therapists!)
Explaining my recommendations and making your plan realistic and manageable whilst supporting you along the way is a really important part of the process.
What we eat is fundamental to all aspects of our health. Nutritional Therapy can therefore help to support and improve all manner of health conditions, such as:
