About Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional Therapy is about more than just food
So, what is Nutritional Therapy and what does a Nutritional Therapist do? Well, I work with clients using the functional medicine model which means that I consider your wellbeing from a holistic (whole-being) point of view. For example, if you are experiencing insomnia, we will look at how internal and external factors (e.g. diet and lifestyle choices) may be impacting your ability to fall, and remain, asleep.
As a Nutritional Therapist, I work with you to uncover all aspects of your health and get to the root cause of any troubling issues you may be experiencing. You might find it odd at first that I ask questions around your personal history but, in my experience, all questions are relevant (whether it is to allow for consideration or to rule things out) and all information you provide is kept completely confidential in line with my responsibilities as a therapist.
It might be that you do not have any particular concerns, but are interested in ensuring that you and your baby are getting key nutrients, at the right stages, to give them the best start possible and help you feel the best you can be. I’m here for that too.
As illustrated in this BANT infographic, all aspects of your life – from external environment to internal gut function – can impact on your wellbeing and it is these areas that we seek to optimise in Nutritional Therapy.
