How does it work?
We combine the wisdom of healing through traditional natural approaches, whilst learning about you as a person; caring about what your life is like, how you sleep, are you happy and fulfilled in your work and personal life.
From this a complete picture is built in order to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances which maybe contributing to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. It offers a client-centred approach to health, putting you at the centre of the consultation, recognising your unique biochemical status.
According to the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT)
Nutritional Therapy is the “application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care…it 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”
“Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health, and determine people’s response to changes in the environment. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirement, nutritional status, and genotype (i.e., “personalised nutrition”) can be used to prevent, mitigate or cure chronic disease”.
