What Is Nutritional Therapy? 

 

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health. 
 
Considered a complementary medicine, nutritional therapy is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions as well as those looking for support to enhance their health  
and wellbeing. 
 
Nutritional therapists use a number of tools to assess and identify nutritional imbalances and understand how these may be contributing to symptoms and  
health concerns. 
 
Personalised diet and lifestyle programmes are then devised to meet the health  
needs of the individual. 
 
Practitioners do not recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and will refer any clients with “red flag” signs or symptoms to the medical profession. They will often work alongside healthcare professionals involved in a client’s care.

Why Use Nutritional Therapy? 

Some people want to make sure they are on the right track with regard to eating healthily. Others may want to lose weight or get help with specific symptoms. 
 
Typically, nutritional therapy can support a number of diet related conditions including digestive discomfort, acid reflux, bloating, constipation or poor immunity. 
 
Other specific support is for child and teen nutrition, women’s nutrition including PMT, menopause, bone health and vegatarian and vegan diets. 
 
Typical priorities in nutritional therapy include support to achieve consistent energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological well being as well as good gastrointestinal health..
