Good nutrition can support your health and wellbeing 

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. Practitioners consider everyone to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their healthcare professional.

Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations include support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health, and tolerance to a broad range of food groups.

What does a Nutrition for Wellbeing session involve?

Before the first consultation, you will be asked to complete a health and nutrition questionnaire. Please return this to us a few days before your appointment so that we have time to review it.

An initial Nutrition for Wellbeing consultation typically lasts 60 minutes, and in this time the practitioner asks detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet. The practitioner then evaluates individual needs and uses the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.

Follow-up consultations may be recommended to assess improvements and how further changes to the diet could help.
