What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional therapy engages scientific principles to identify whether your body is receiving the necessary nutrients it requires to repair and rebalance itself. This is achieved through the utilisation of individual and personalised programmes which assess and where necessary, modify your diet and lifestyle to encourage your body to heal itself. Nutritional therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies to promote optimal health.
Nutritional therapy is based on the latest scientific research and clinical findings. Seemingly small adjustments and changes to your diet and lifestyle can be very powerful in creating changes in your health status. Your body is an amazing and complex system which has a fantastic ability to keep itself in perfect condition if it is given the right nutrients and environment.
How can nutritional therapy help you?
Your entire body, from your hair and bones to your skin and toenails, is constructed entirely from the food you eat, and also provides the energy with which your body is able to function. Therefore consuming the right foods in the correct proportions is key to ensuring that your body functions correctly, without depriving your body of the key components necessary to maintain health. It is currently estimated that less than 10% of the UK population currently obtain the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals. In the absence of essential nutrients, metabolism is compromised, hormones and brain chemicals cannot be produced and repair processes slow whilst ageing accelerates.
