A little bit about nutritional therapy.
First things first. Exactly what is nutritional therapy?
Well, the official explanation that appears on the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (or BANT’s) website is very official indeed. “Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.”
It’s also something that done the right way, can help you feel totally amazing and give you that fuzzy feel good factor again.
To get you to a place where you’re feeling all of that good stuff, a nutritional therapist will use a wide range of tools, to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances, and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms or health concerns.
A therapist will then work together with their client, to create a nutritional plan or strategy to help combat these identified problems.
A form of complimentary medicine, nutritional therapy is relevant for lots of different people. From those who suffer from chronic conditions, to those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing - and everywhere in between.
Nutritional therapy is not a replacement for medical advice, and ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms will always be referred to a medical professional.
