Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health. Nutritional Health practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.
Nutritional Therapy is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions.
Practitioners look at each person individually, sometimes assessing their state of health or imbalance with a test or screening machine, and then recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes.
What does a nutritional therapy session involve?
Before the first consultation, the practitioner usually provides a health and nutrition questionnaire for the client to complete. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and in this time the practitioner asks detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet. The practitioner then evaluates individual needs and develops a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.
One follow-up consultation is necessary in order to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.
