Nutritional therapy is based on the scientific principle that food, as nature intended it, provides the nutrients needed to help bring us back to a state of optimum health and vitality. Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these imbalances may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns.

I use a naturopathic approach that takes into account all aspects of the individual including the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing to deliver a suitable protocol incorporating food, supplements and lifestyle. This holistic approach aims to support the person as a whole and understand the root cause of any symptoms rather than simply suppressing them. Nutritional therapy is considered effective for many health conditions which can include but not limited to:

  • Allergies and intolerances
  • Digestive disorders
  • IBS
  • Mood imbalances
  • Boosting immunity
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Eczema
  • Hayfever
  • Insomnia
  • Energy levels
  • Anxiety
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Thyroid issues
  • Migraines
  • Child behavioural problems
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol
  • Weight management
  • Stress management
  • Fertility
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin conditions
  • Performance nutrition
  • PMS
  • Menopause
  • Female health
  • Male health
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Eating disorders

Nutritional therapists do not diagnose, nor claim to treat or heal and advice given is not intended to replace the medical advice given by the NHS. We work alongside your GP and at times we may need to refer you to your GP or other medical professional if necessary.

The stresses of modern life, such as working long hours, meeting deadlines, having to eat on the go and the speed at which we live, can cause the quality of food to become less important and more of an inconvenience to our busy lifestyles. This unfortunately puts a strain on the body and in the long run may have a significant effect on our health. Most supermarkets are stocked with ready meals and highly processed snacks, which are more often than not low in nutritional value. In turn, even though we are eating, we are not giving the body the building blocks needed to maintain health and vitality. Nutritional therapy uses food and supplements to give the body the nutrients it needs to thrive, while investigating the foods that may be causing adverse effects.

Each individual is given a personal protocol to follow, as everybody is unique and I believe one person’s food is another person’s poison. Following a nutritional therapy protocol does not mean deprivation, it’s about making simple, practical changes that become a way of life; to put you back in control and give you a natural balanced focus. Nutritional therapy is not a one pill wonder; it is a change in lifestyle to bring your body back to optimum health. Although you may see some immediate improvements it can take the body time to come back into balance.
