Nutritional Therapy FAQs

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy focuses on the overall nutrient value of a client’s diet to ensure optimal well being and sustained health. The therapy also encompasses lifestyle and environmental factors that might contribute to or detract from ultimate well being. During this process a client is educated as to the benefits of dietary and lifestyle intervention, so that they can feel empowered to take charge of their own health following the necessary amount of consultations.

Who might benefit from Nutritional Therapy?

The answer is simple – anybody! From those that want to simply improve their overall diet, to individuals with more chronic health conditions.

What happens in a consultation?

As a Nutritional Therapist, I will normally assign an initial appointment of 60 to 90 minutes. During this time, I will take a detailed case history from you, and ask questions that will give me a sound idea of your nutritional health.

As part of the consultation, I will ask you about diet, lifestyle, sleep quality, bowel movements, general habits and behaviours. This information will help me understand where nutritional support can be provided and thus personalised to you.

After your initial consultation,  I will create dietary recommendations and a lifestyle plan personalised for you. This may include dietary modifications, lifestyle and environmental adjustments. I may also recommend specific supplements or laboratory tests.

Follow up consultations tend to be shorter and can last 45 minutes to an hour depending on the complexity of your health goals.
