Nutritional Therapy


Overview

Our bodies need the correct balance of nutrients to function well. Nutritional therapy recognises that we are all biochemically unique and is about creating a bespoke programme of diet, lifestyle and where necessary nutritional supplements. Nutritional therapy will provide an optimal and individual nutrition programme.

Approach

I use detailed case history and where appropriate laboratory tests to help me provide optimal nutrition advice. My recommendations will work support the channels of detoxification, enhance the digestive function, balancing blood sugar, addressing food intolerance or sensitivity, building natural immune defences and resolving hormone or neurotransmitter imbalances.

I help you to integrate my recommendations into your life, making it realistic and achievable. My recommendations will include meal ideas, recipes, shopping lists, targeted nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes.

Nutritional Therapy is not a replacement for medical advice. I will always recommend that you consult with your GP for a serious health condition. Nutritional Therapy can and is frequently used along side conventional medical treatment, either to support treatment or to alleviate some of the side effects.

There is good scientific evidence to support the use of nutrition to alleviate health problems and to help in the prevention of chronic disease.

Expectations

Nutritional therapy isn’t a magic, one-pill-fits-all-solution. It can take time for the body to respond and come back into balance, although you can expect to see some immediate improvements. Remember this is about resolving the underlying factors involved. I recommend a minimum of 2 nutritional therapy sessions and find that most clients require 3 or 4. I allow 90 minutes for the initial consultation, follow ups are 60 or 30 minutes. Prices and locations can be found here.

Expertise

At my London clinic I see clients with a wide range of health issues but I have particular expertise in improving digestive health, toxin avoidance and detoxification support, weight loss, improving energy, supporting the endocrine and immune systems

Before the consultation, I need you to complete a health and nutrition questionnaire. This can be completed online and a link will be sent to you once the appointment is booked.
