What is Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional Therapy is the application of the science of nutrition in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional Therapy can identify potential nutritional imbalances and how these imbalances may contribute to an individual’s symptom’s and health concerns.
This approach allows the nutritional therapist to work with individuals to address these imbalances and help to support the body towards maintaining optimum health. We are all unique, a personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme will be recommended rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Nutritional Therapy is never recommended as a replacement for medical advice and nutritional therapists will always refer a client to their medical professional if they are concerned about signs or symptoms a client may have.
About Nutritional Therapy
Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health and determine a person’s response to changes in the environment. Under certain circumstances, and in some individuals, diet can be a contributing factor for a number of diseases. Common dietary chemicals can act on the human genome (our DNA), either directly or indirectly, to alter gene expression or structure. The degree to which diet influences the balance between healthy and disease states may depend on an individuals genetic makeup. Some diet-regulated genes are likely to play a role in the onset, incidence, progression and/or severity of chronic diseases. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirements, nutritional status and genotype, can be used to prevent, mitigate or reverse chronic disease.
Why Use Nutritional Therapy
Some people simply want to check that they are on the right track with regards to healthy eating. Others may want to lose weight or may have particular symptoms they want to address.
Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body, skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary (skin, hair, nails). Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations include support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health and support for a rang of inflammatory conditions.
