What is Nutritional Therapy?

Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine, and let thy medicine be food”

Nutritional therapy is the use of food as a medicine to bring the body’s systems into balance, promoting natural healing capabilities and optimum health. Food is a very powerful healer and the body has an amazing ability to repair itself. When the body is provided with the right nutrients from good food sources some conditions may be completely reversed or symptoms substantially reduced.

Nutritional Therapy’s holistic approach incorporates the whole person, their environment and their circumstances, and combines it with the science of the body’s biochemistry and disease processes. The fundamental view of nutritional therapy is that many common diseases arise from imbalances in the biochemistry of the body’s natural systems, and that, in principle, balance can be restored by careful tailoring of the natural substances in the diet.

There isn’t one specific diet that is ideal for all; nutrition is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Everyone has different needs, wants and requirements. Here at The Nutrition Studio I use a functional approach towards healthcare. This means that programs are designed to prevent illness as well as identify and address any underlying cause of health problems, instead of simply focusing on symptoms.  I will help you achieve your full potential by designing a nutritional and lifestyle program that is specifically tailored to your individual needs. One that is realistic and can fit into your everyday life taking into consideration the time you have available, and what you do and don't enjoy eating and cooking. My priority is to get your diet right, and if appropriate, nutritional supplements may also be recommended. I will endeavour to provide local stockists of all the products I recommend, making it as easy as possible for you to put into practice any dietary changes. Nutritional Therapy is NOT about restricting large numbers of foods or recommending ‘fad’ diets. I focus on providing practical advice and ongoing support to help you make long term dietary and lifestyle changes in order to promote optimum health.

The Nutrition Studio can help you by offering:
  • A comprehensive nutritional program specifically tailored to your individual needs
  • Practical advice on dietary and lifestyle issues
  • Laboratory testing and nutritional supplementation if required

Nutritional Therapy can be undertaken alongside conventional treatments from your GP or alternative therapies. It can be a wonderful addition to your treatment plan and path to health. Often an integrated approach to healthcare can be the most effective. If you are seeing a GP, consultant or alternative therapist you are advised to inform them you are also seeing a Nutritional Therapist.
