What Is Nutritional Therapy?

Unsure what Nutritional Therapy is?  Read on.

Symptoms and the Healing Process

When we talk about disease we spend a lot of the time talking about symptoms. Headaches, tiredness, aches and pains, they all tell us how we’re feeling however they don’t offer many clues about why we might be feeling that way. While medication can help us more comfortable it may not always be appropriate in each and every case.  This may even be something you’re experiencing yourself with the medication you’ve been prescribed not be giving the results you hoped for . It coud could even be resulting in some undesired side effects.

Our bodies have a natural ability to heal. However, with long-standing health conditions the natural healing processes are hindered.  Reasons for this include nutrient deficiencies, inflammation, environmental toxins, poor sleep or immune imbalances. It is by bringing these back into balance we can support our own natural healing processes.

Nutritional Therapy focuses on you as an individual with a unique set of challenges and works to bring changes that last.

A Holistic Approach

If you’re walking down the street and you notice a small stone in your shoe digging into your foot what would you be inclined to do?  Would you take a pain killer to numb the pain or stop, slip off your shoes and remove the stone? It’s a simple analogy but these aches and pains are signs that something isn’t quite right and it’s important that these signals are listened to.  This is what nutritional therapy aims to do.  It’s my job to figure out why these signals are being sen. By connecting the dots between seemingly unconnected symptoms and get you back to feeling great.

Complex gut conditions they may have developed over years if not decades. This means I rarely see clients for “one off” consultations as I don’t feel this approach offers a realistic or meaningful approach to allow you to regain your health.

If we want to chop down a tree, trimming the branches isn’t going to get us very far.  Short term it might work but give it a few weeks and the branches will be back stronger than ever.  To remove the tree for good we need to dig up the roots and address the underlying issue. Health is no different.  It’s about digging, understanding what mechanisms are at play and making the most appropriate interventions.  Here we address any foundational and fundamental imbalances in your gut.  I call this root cause resolution and this means you’ll see lasting change.

 

Where We Focus

There are a number of areas of your health and broader wellbeing that we’ll examine to understand the root cause of your symptoms:

  • Gut health
  • Environmental toxins
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Genetics
  • Nutrient status
  • Immune function

The Consultation Process

Before we meet for the first consultation I will ask you to complete an in-depth health questionnaire.  This will give me a clearer understanding of the current state of your health. This will also allow us to make the best use of our time together during the first consultation to dive deeper and set out and the best way to move forward.

Consultations Include

  • A full in-depth health assessment to investigate the root of your symptoms.  This includes dietary assessment, medical and family history, sleep, stress and more. 90 minute duration.
  • Follow up consultations where we assess progress, monitor any changes in symptoms and discuss test results.  Here we refine our approach and make any appropriate changes to the plan. 45 minute duration.
  • Investigation of potential food triggers and working to understand which foods to eat and, if indicated, which to avoid – and why!
  • Personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme based on your symptoms..
  • Practical, adaptable recipes and resources.
  • Additional support in person, via email, text or messenger according to your needs.
  • Health coaching to help you fully understand your health needs, navigate the programme, identify and overcome potential challenges.
  • I may also recommend some additional supplements and/or diagnostic testing to investigate potential imbalances. *

* The cost of these is not included in the programme fee.
