Nutritional Therapy

Improve your mental and physical health, boost your energy levels, and feel better with nutritional therapy.

What we eat has a huge impact on how we feel. Yet in today’s society, it’s all to easy to turn to convenience and junk food. Our unhealthy diet is taking its toll though, leaving us feeling lethargic and with a whole range of health complaints from obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes to bad skin, insomnia, and digestive issues.

It doesn’t take much to feel better though. Small diet changes can make a big difference. Though, with so much conflicting information, diet advice and complicated labelling, it can be hard to know what changes to make. But that’s where nutritional therapy comes in. Altering your diet and lifestyle with the help of a nutritional therapist can:

  • Ensure you’re getting the right balance of nutrients
  • Help you to lose weight
  • Increase your energy levels
  • Improve skin conditions
  • Boost your immune system
  • Balance your hormones
  • Relieve the effects of food intolerances
  • Improve digestion
  • Relieve symptoms of illnesses such as IBS

About Nutritional Therapy

The idea that food impacts our health and how we feel is not a new concept. In fact, more than two thousand years ago, Hippocrates said…

 

Let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food.

Yet, despite our awareness, obesity and other diet related issues are on the rise. Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science to promote health and optimal performance. Taking an individual rather than ‘one size fits all’ approach, nutritional therapists consider unique requirements and address nutritional imbalances through the production of personalised nutrition plans. It’s not a replacement for medical treatment but can run alongside conventional medicine to support treatments and relieve side-effects.

What to expect at consultations

Before our first consultation, I will ask you to complete a health questionnaire and five-day food diary. We’ll discuss the results in your first appointment along with your medical history, diet, and lifestyle. The appointment will last between 1.5–2 hours.

I’ll then put together a tailor-made diet and lifestyle programme for you to implement at home. I may recommend supplements to support your body while you make changes, for which there is an additional charge.

If you need support, you can contact me over email or telephone at any time. Otherwise we’ll meet for a follow up appointment 4–6 weeks after your initial consultation. It’s a good time to review your program and discuss any adjustments. I can also run tests, including food intolerance, hair analysis, urine, and stool analysis, to get a more complete picture of how your body is functioning, though they do come at an additional charge.
