What is nutritional therapy?
Many chronic illnesses have been linked to poor nutrition. Ensuring that we get the nutrients we need to feel well physically, mentally and emotionally is an important step towards better health.
Drawing on principles derived from current biochemical and physiological scientific knowledge, nutritional therapy aims to stimulate the body’s powerful healing capacity to restore good health through a personalised healthy eating plan. Often just small changes to diet and lifestyle can bring significant health improvements.
Nutritional therapists recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan, rather than a “one size fits all” approach.
Nutritional therapy provides non-invasive approach to health. Members of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) abide by the BANT code of professional practice. This code is designed to ensure that members of the public receive consistent, professional and safe experience when visiting a qualified nutritional therapist.
