Nutritional therapy is a professional approach to health which focuses on YOU as a whole person. There's no 'standard menu' because we formulate bespoke diet and lifestyle protocols specifically and uniquely for your needs.
Using a Functional Medicine approach, I look at the underlying causes of your symptoms: the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’. I consider the systems of your body that may be under strain and support their self-regulating and recuperative processes. For example, digestive health can have a profound impact on mood and mental clarity.
After researching your individual needs and history, we create food and lifestyle plans to promote your body's health. This could include increasing or reducing certain foods, or improving your intake of specific vitamins or minerals. These steps are remarkably effective. In addition, instead of 'side-effects', people often notice 'side-benefits' to their health.
As a ‘complementary’ practice, nutritional therapy aims to operate in concert with mainstream medicine. Whether or not you already receive medical care, nutritional therapy can offer you holistic support.
