What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy combines science (biochemistry and nutrition) with naturopathy (natural, drug-free medicine) in order to return the patient to a state of good health.
Nutritional therapy recognises food selection and preparation as a healing art that seeks to address imbalances in the body. It is designed to treat the body as a whole - taking into account the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of the whole person when assessing health problems and working to address the causes of problems, not just the symptoms.
By creating the most favourable conditions to stimulate and enhance the body’s natural healing power through diet, lifestyle and possibly supplementation, a nutritional therapist can help with a range of health problems.
Nutritional Therapists aim to seek out and advise on ways to remove or reduce the cause of disease, rather than simply suppressing the symptoms.
