What is Nutritional Therapy?
The aim of nutritional therapy is to identify areas of imbalance and create an optimal, individualised nutrition programme to help improve health and wellness, based on a holistic functional medicine approach. This may be achieved via either nutritional or lifestyle interventions, supplementation or indeed a combination of approaches.
Where necessary laboratory tests may also be required in order to assist in uncovering potential underlying causes of any symptoms that an individual may be experiencing. These may range from IBS type issues to low energy, weight gain and skin conditions.
How does the process work?
Clients are required to complete a Nutritional Health Questionnaire, in addition to a 3-5 day food and mood diary prior to attending the first appointment. The initial consultation is 90 minutes in duration and allows the therapist to investigate the individual's symptoms in much greater depth. This can potentially uncover any underlying nutritional imbalances, digestive, detoxification, hormonal or immunity issues and as a result, some initial recommendations will be negotiated in order to address the symptoms.
Follow-up appointments are 45 minutes in duration and are generally 4 - 6 weeks apart, in order to allow the recommendations to take effect. The goal of these is to further alleviate the identified symptoms and help to achieve client goals with an even more tightly focused approach. This is based on a thorough case analysis, functional assessment of progress made between appointments and if necessary any required further research.
Telephone and email support is also provided free of charge between appointments.
How much does it cost?
Initial consultation (90 minutes) £65
