What are the benefits of Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
The practitioner considers each individual to be unique and recommends personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. The programmes are designed following in depth one-to one consultations where the practitioner gets a detailed picture of your health history, your symptoms, possible body imbalances and lifestyle habits.
The aim of the consultations is to empower you to take control of your own wellbeing. The practitioner will motivate and support you along the way.
