Registered nutritional therapists are trained to assess an individual's nutritional status in the context of their specific needs and requirements.
In a consultation, I will consider the genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that influence the function of the body's systems and progression of disease, and apply the latest advances in nutritional science to deliver a patient-centred, integrative approach to healthcare.
I use a comprehensive model to identify and address the factors underlying chronic disease, engaging a wide range of tools (detailed health questionnaire, medical history, family history, symptom analysis, lifestyle and dietary analysis, and functional testing) to identify biochemical, hormonal and microbiological imbalances and understand how these may contribute to your symptoms and health concerns.
Nutritional therapy is not intended as a replacement for medical advice. Clients may be referred to their GP when deemed necessary. Nutritional therapy practitioners frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client's care to ensure the best possible health outcome for a client.
