“I work with clients to reinstate nutritional balance”

What is nutritional therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. I use a wide range of tools, including diagnostic tests where necessary, to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows me to work with my clients to reinstate nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. I view the body as an orchestrated network of interconnected systems rather than individual systems functioning autonomously and without effect on each other. For example poor diet, compromised gut health and chronic stress can all bring about hormonal imbalances and supporting these issues may have a positive effect on hormone balance.

I consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. For example there is never one definitive reason someone may have trouble conceiving, so it is important to look at each person individually in order to get to the root cause of the issue and address any imbalances that may be occurring.

Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

 

I never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. I frequently work alongside a medical professional, for example my client’s GP, and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in my client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
