Nutritional therapy identifies potential nutritional imbalances. I use a variety of tools, including a health questionnaire and food diary. This helps me to understand what may be contributing to your symptoms and health concerns.
The health questionnaire gives you an opportunity to answer relevant health questions. At the same time this helps me make an assessment of your health and nutritional requirements. Similarly it gives you a reflective chance to identify your own health concerns in more detail. Assessing what, when and how you eat can help us both towards finding useful solutions for maintaining and optimising health and well-being.
Nutritional Therapy can be practiced alongside other suitably qualified health professionals and is safe, all registered nutritional therapists are trained to recognise ‘red flags’ (health conditions that may indicate something more serious).
Before the first consultation you will complete a health questionnaire and a food diary. We will review and discuss at the consultation. This lasts up to 90 minutes. Finally you will take away a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.
You will receive recommendations, relevant handouts and recipes. However there is a responsibility for you to put the changes into practice for the best results. I love it when clients come back and give me new ideas and recipes to try!
Nutritional therapy advises on functional testing. Common tests are: stool testing, adrenal stress tests, thyroid, cardiovascular profiles and vitamin D levels.
I recommend clients return for follow-up consultations. It is an opportunity to discuss how you have been and if there are any adjustments that need to be made. It is a journey as well that needs usually more than one session.
I advise on lifestyle changes that include breathing techniques, ways to relax and energise the body, my personal recommendations of complimentary therapists and toxin reducing strategies such as advice on make-up, deodorants and other toiletries.
A free 15 minute phone consultation is available. This is a good opportunity to find out more and if this is for you. Furthermore we can discuss briefly your health concerns and how nutritional therapy will support you and your goals. Get in touch today.
