What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional therapy is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on using food and nutrients to support the body's natural healing processes. It recognises that our foods profoundly impact our overall health and well-being. Nutritional therapy aims to optimise nutrition and address imbalances or deficiencies to promote better health and support the body's natural healing processes.

Nutritional therapists often work with individuals to create personalised nutrition plans based on their specific needs, lifestyle, and health goals. Personalised nutrition is about tailoring your diet and nutritional choices to meet your needs and goals. It recognises that everyone is unique, with different metabolic rates, genetic predispositions, and lifestyle factors that can influence our nutritional requirements. By considering factors like age, sex, weight, activity level, and health conditions, personalised nutrition aims to provide an optimised and balanced approach to food intake.

The concept of personalised nutrition goes beyond the traditional "one-size-fits-all" approach and recognises that what works for one person may not work for another. It considers your specific dietary preferences, food sensitivities or allergies, and even your cultural or ethical beliefs, ensuring that your nutritional plan is effective but also enjoyable and sustainable.

To achieve personalised nutrition, various tools and approaches can be utilised. These may include genetic testing to identify specific genetic variations that can impact nutrient metabolism and advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence to analyse and interpret the collected data. Personalised nutrition can also involve working closely with a registered nutritional therapist who can guide and support you in customising your diet plan.

By guiding proper nutrition and dietary choices, nutritional therapy aims to support the body's ability to heal, improve energy levels, promote mental clarity, enhance immune function, and achieve optimal health.

Functional Test

It's important to note that the specific tests used in nutritional therapy will depend on the individual's unique needs and health concerns. Working with a qualified nutritional therapist can help determine which tests are most appropriate for you and how to interpret and apply the results to optimize your nutritional status.

Functional Skincare

Functional Skincare is an approach to dermatological care that focuses on treating the root causes of skin issues rather than just addressing the symptoms. It considers the overall health and well-being of an individual, as skin conditions can often reflect internal imbalances or underlying health issues.

PCOS & Hormonal Imbalance

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is defined by the accumulation of numerous cysts on the ovaries associated with hyperandrogenism, oligo-ovulation/anovulation, and polycystic ovaries. Inflammation has been shown to increase androgens and exacerbate PCOS even without insulin resistance. If you get recurrent infections, this could be an indicator that you have chronic inflammation.

IBS & Food Sensitivity

IBS affects about 5% to 20% of people worldwide. Diagnosis is based on symptoms of chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits, in the absence of overt organic disease. Diarrhoea or constipation may predominate, or they may alternate.

Detox (Biotoxin, Metals & Chemicals)

The latest trend in alternative medicine is a “cleanse” or a “detox”. While most of us have an understanding of the definition of detoxification, the process in the body is usually unknown and often misunderstood by the general public.
