Discover how you can regain your energy and transform your life
THE INITIAL CONSULTATION
You will be asked to complete a comprehensive Nutritional Therapy questionnaire before you visit. During the first session, (which will be approx. 60 minutes long), we will talk about your health goals and your current concerns. We will take a look at your medical history and talk about your diet and lifestyle. This will include your likes, dislikes, special dietary requirements and when and how you eat. Everything we discuss will be in complete confidence and without judgement. By the end of the consultation we will have agreed on a plan of action to get you started.
Functional testing may be helpful in understanding the underlying cause of your symptoms. Possible tests include comprehensive stool analysis, nutritional status and food intolerance testing in addition to a comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites. The results often add an overlooked piece to the puzzle to discovering the link between your symptoms, your diet and your lifestyle.
WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Nutritional Therapy is a complementary approach to promote health, optimum body function, and individualised care which is informed by scientific evidence and functional testing.
A Registered Nutritional Therapists will investigate and address nutritional imbalances by understanding the root causes of an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. Nutritional Therapy is relevant for those looking to optimise their health and well being, in addition to those with chronic health conditions.
Body function, protection against disease and environmental changes are all influenced by the nutrients we eat and the lifestyle we lead. In certain cases they can be a risk factor for many diseases. Though an individual’s genetic makeup can influence the degree to which diet can affect our health, many nutrients can positively affect our gene expression. Therefore, dietary intervention combined with lifestyle adjustments such as sleep and managing stress levels can be very effective in helping prevent or alleviate chronic disease.
