“Break free from chronic complex health conditions"
What is Nutritional therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach (1) to maximising health through personalised diet and lifestyle advice, which is tailored to the health needs and goals of the individual. It takes into consideration the whole person, including the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of that person, and recognises the interconnectedness of these parts in achieving optimal health and well-being. In addition, in line with the principles of functional medicine (2), Nutritional Therapy seeks to discover the root cause of an individual’s health concerns, not just focusing on alleviating symptoms.
Nutrition is not a quick fix, but more of a gradual modification of your diet and lifestyle to transform your health and vitality. Most chronic conditions did not come on overnight, and could have been troubling you for years if not decades, so may take time to improve. Science is constantly confirming the importance of a “whole body” approach-we cannot ignore the effect of other factors such as our emotions, sleep patterns, exercise and general sense of well-being upon our physical health. Committing to new habits and ways of eating for life can reward you with sustained and measurable changes.
