What Is Nutritional Therapy?

The science and art of improving your health

Nutritional Therapy – the science

Evidence-based nutritional science.

The key focus is keeping your body in balance through diet and lifestyle. Food choices can make a huge difference to the way you look, feel and think.  Even small changes can have amazing effects. I also look at genetics, health history, environment and lifestyle choices which may impact your overall wellbeing.

Nutritional Therapy – the art

Here’s where a great practitioner can be a blessing.

I apply Functional Medicine principles to assess your health. This approach looks at you as the whole person and not just your symptoms or diagnosis (IBS is a diagnosis of exclusion).  I’m looking to find the root cause. Or causes – it’s rarely just one thing. This is often due to nutrient deficiencies or functional imbalances in body systems. These systems are not discrete; they are an intricate network of connected systems and all have a profound effect on each other.

We’re all biochemically different.  It’s my job to find out how YOUR individual circumstances are affecting YOUR health.

I use the 5R protocol to achieve lasting digestive health – REMOVE, REPLACE, REPAIR, REPOPULATE, REBALANCE.


Nutritional Therapy – for digestive health

Your gut can be a tricky thing to feed.

Processed foods, alcohol and sugar are well-known to cause havoc in your gut.  But there are also lots of super-healthy foods that can upset your gut.   Most clients are just so frustrated at not knowing which foods to eat and which to avoid – it’s different for everyone and that’s my job to find yours.

Delivering a personalised programme just for you

I provide you with a personalised programme that is tailor-made for you.

It’s like a big jigsaw puzzle for me to slot all the pieces in the right place. We work as a team, so you feel more in control of your wellbeing and are more likely to make sustainable lifestyle changes to improve your health.  That’s a win/win in my book.
