What is Nutritional therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.
Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
What conditions can good nutrition help with?
Gaining advice from a nutritionist could improve:
· Digestive issues such as IBS
· Weight loss
· Lower cholesterol
· Reduce the risks of diabetes
· Increase energy levels and improve sports performance
Good nutrition and how we eat can make a huge difference to our daily lives. By using fresh, whole, unprocessed, nutritious foods and some supplements, symptoms of many conditions can be reduced or eliminated, nutritional deficiencies corrected, food intolerances resolved, energy boosted and digestion improved – which is key to good health.
