In today’s fast-paced world, buying convenience and processed food is commonplace for many. However, vital nutrients are often lacking or lost by the time our food hits the supermarket shelves. And our time-poor lifestyles mean we don’t have enough time to think about whether what we are eating is actually optimising our health and the health of our family.
However, a nutritionally unbalanced diet can wreak havoc with our health and wellness, sparking issues from IBS, general fatigue, food intolerances and allergies to more acute health conditions and even disease.
Registered nutritional therapists apply the science and practice of understanding and consuming the right foods in order to promote optimal health and vitality. Using a wide range of tools, they assess theirs clients individually to identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may be contributing to any symptoms or health concerns. They will then create a personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme.
Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional.
