Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science to promote health and wellbeing. It is a drug-free approach that treats the whole person. When attempting to bring about positive change for the client, nutritional therapy takes into account a wide range of factors; such as the individual’s diet, digestion, nutrient absorption, levels of stress and medical history.
Nutritional therapy considers how nutrients from food and supplementation interact with the body’s tissues, organs and systems in order to promote a natural balance and positive health outcomes.
Inappropriate diet, stress, poor digestion, malabsorption, and inadequate toxin elimination can manifest in many symptoms of ill-health and disease. The nutritional therapist will work with the individual to achieve a tailored approach in order to promote control over their own health. In doing so, body system imbalances can be given the support they need and health can be reclaimed.
Nutritional therapy can work well alongside other therapies and orthodox medical treatment.
