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.
Increasing nutrition will never have a negative effect on a person and for this reason there is no person that will not gain some benefit from the advice of a Nutritional Therapist.
Some of the Common complaints that Nutritional Therapy can help with:
As a Nutritional Therapist, I will normally assign an initial appointment of approximately 60 minutes. During this time, I will ask questions based around the health questionnaires that you will have completed beforehand. This will give me a sound idea of your nutritional health and goals.
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.
During this consultation we will discuss and agree some initial dietary modifications and lifestyle changes personalised for you. I may also recommend specific supplements or laboratory tests. A short manageable action plan will then be agreed which will be emailed to you after the consultation along with supporting information guides, a personalised recipe pack and supplement plan ( where appropriate).
Follow up consultations tend to be shorter and can last 15 minutes to an hour depending on the complexity of your health goals and time commitments.
