What is Nutritional Therapy?



Nutritional Therapy applies nutrition science in the promotion of health. It seeks peak performance and optimum health, utilising dietary intervention where appropriate and the sensible use of dietary supplements. It supports recovery from ill health and alleviates a wide range of conditions. Nutritional Therapists and nutritionists work alongside numerous other healthcare practitioners and G.P.s, always referring a client to a medical practitioner where necessary. Nutritional Therapy can aid in the prevention of disease and it can provide support for anyone with an existing chronic condition.


My London nutritional therapy consultations focus on an overall assessment of the client with questions on health issues and dietary and lifestyle habits, beginning as far back as childhood. Interactions between nutrients, food, genetics, environmental and lifestyle factors are considered. The recommended protocol is client-centred and is aimed at influencing long-term health concerns. It identifies nutritional imbalances, which may be contributing towards a client’s health concerns. Protocols may include a combination of dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements, exercise, stress-management techniques and various lifestyle considerations. I am a registered Nutritional Therapist CNHC and a registered nutritionist mBANT.


BANT and CNHC are registered organisations which outline the parameters in which registered Nutritional Therapists operate. The short video below gives some useful information about BANT and what you should expect from a Nutritional Therapy practitioner.
