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.
Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns.
This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.
Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body: skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary
(skin, hair, nails).
