What Is Nutritional Therapy?

We offer a Nutritional Therapy service in and around Oxfordshire aimed at improving health and wellbeing through a scientific approach to diet.

Nutritional Therapy Explained

Nutritional Therapy is an approach to healthcare that centres on the individual.

Assessment and interventions are based on nutritional, lifestyle-based and related health sciences. This assists the individual to optimise their emotional, cognitive and physiological function. The assessment may include the use of appropriate laboratory tests and but also observations such as case history, physical signs and nutritional/ lifestyle analysis. Assessment can also provide the basis for referral to a licensed physician, or other healthcare professional.

The key focus of Nutritional Therapy is to achieve well being and good health by balancing and sustaining the function and structure of the body. This approach recognises that diet and lifestyle are among factors that profoundly influence the body. Nutritional and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary [skin, hair, nails]). Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations are support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological well being, optimum gastrointestinal health and tolerance to a broad range of food groups.

A recommended program may include, among other information, nutritional / lifestyle modification and nutritive supplementation. A qualified Nutritional Therapist will work with you to achieve the best food selection or your personal needs.
