Nutritional therapists work with individuals to enhance their health and general wellbeing through diet and nutrition. They use their specialist knowledge to conduct a holistic assessment of a client's nutritional requirements and then suggest specific changes to their diet in an attempt to prevent or alleviate illness and to promote good health.
Nutritional therapists also work with patients with chronic health conditions in collaboration with other qualified healthcare professionals.
Nutritional therapy is a complementary therapy and is often used alongside conventional medicine.
What does it help ?
Conditions helped by nutritional therapy range from relatively minor health problems, such as fatigue, to more chronic complaints, such as depression, arthritic joint pain, skin disease, childhood development disorders, migraines, eating disorders and asthma.
