What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional therapy is a holistic treatment that supports individuals in working towards optimal health.
Wholefoods, supplements and lifestyle adjustments are used and the process is structured over several sessions, allowing for body systems to be worked on separately and for sustainable diet and lifestyle improvements to be made.
I believe that reconnecting with good food and regaining health should be an enjoyable process and worth the challenge of learning new habits. Clients are often pleasantly surprised to find that I encourage a relaxed approach, focusing on quality and inclusion rather than restriction and calorie counting.
What happens during a consultation?
There is a short questionnaire and a diet diary to complete before each consultation.
In the first consultation, lots information is gathered, including the medical history, the family's medical history, an overview of all the body systems and any other treatments or medication. This helps me build a complete picture of a person's health and find the underlying causes of any health problems. Health goals, preferences and the type of support required are also discussed.
During follow up consultations, we evaluate progress, changes in symptoms, aspects that were enjoyable or challenging and reassess the health goals.
What happens after the consultation?
You will receive your nutritional therapy plan by email within 48 hours of your consultation. Each plan includes:
Diet Diary Feedback
How many consultations will I need?
The number of consultations required varies according to the individual. Initially it is best to book 3 sessions over 3 months, then book more as needed.
Are there any lab tests?
I usually recommend some lab tests, referring to the GP at the initial consultation. If further lab testing is required that is unavailable on the NHS this can be arranged privately.
