Nutritional therapy is an individual-centred approach to healthcare that employs functional assessment and intervention using nutritional, lifestyle-based and related health sciences in order to assist you in optimising your physiological, emotive, cognitive and physical function. The use of food and life style changes are recognised as a principle component of achieving and maintaining optimal levels of health. Research is increasingly recognising that foods have nutritive value beyond simply caloric or macronutrient quantity and quality. A nutritional consultation can help determine the best food selection for your personal needs.
“We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are” - Adelle Davis
Assessment includes the use of appropriate tests and observations, such as a thorough case history, body measurements, physical and physiological signs, laboratory tests and nutrition/lifestyle analysis to determine an optimal nutrition programme. Assessment also provides for the basis for referral to a licensed physician or other healthcare professional if necessary.
Recommendations may include, among other information, dietary/life style modification, supplementation and education on physiological/biochemical pathways to promote deep learning and self-healing. Coaching is offered in support of an optimal outcome.
