NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

What is  Nutritional Therapy and how would it benefit  you?

Nutritional Therapy is the art and science of becoming well and being healthy and happy, not only through the use of food and drink, but also through  all the other elements of everyday life.

Nutrition is food; the nutrients and food components that influence our body functions and systems, helping to protect us against disease and optimise our health. Everything we put in or on our bodies affects us somehow, whether positively or negatively. Being conscious of these effects and the needs of the body to function in a positive, healthy and efficient way is the underpinning of Nutritional Therapy. Ergo; we are what we eat (and drink, and breathe and put on our skin).

The purpose of Nutritional therapy is to help maximise your own potential to maintain health, feel well, support lifestyle choices,  overcome physical and mental boundaries, educate, re-balance and breathe. It looks into our relationship with, and understanding of,  food;  it is how we eat, what we eat and when we eat. When we eat seasonally, we remain in balance with our environment leaving us better equipped to stay healthy and tolerate the changing climate.

Nutritional therapy is now recognised as an integrative medicine and is now being used as  a very useful and beneficial approach to promoting health and wellbeing. Not only does it have the capacity to work alongside people living with chronic conditions, it can be used to help with;

  • Fatigue (tiredness, poor concentration)
  • Digestive Problems (Food allergies/Intolerances, Constipation, Diarrhoea, bloating, IBS, Reflux)
