What is Nutritional Therapy?
The tools of nutritional therapy enable you to discover the drivers and mediators of your current state of wellness. Adjustments to diet and lifestyle can have a profound effect on your health.
An often over-looked fact is that food is medicine and equally it can be poison, depending on your completely unique 'body machinery'. I can offer professional help at my practice near Nottingham to help you make those adjustments can be highly beneficial and lead to profound change.
What conditions can it help?
The following conditions can be alleviated through professional nutritional therapy; issues concerned with digestion, IBS, nervous system, joints, muscular pain, stress, detoxification, tiredness, energy, sleep, hormone balance, healthy fertility/pregnancy, memory and concentration, skin, menstruation, inflammation and immune system can all be supported through good diet and lifestyle choices.
Getting to the root cause...
Through detailed medical history taking and functional laboratory testing it is possible to discover the root cause or causes of your current issues. I use the functional medicine model to unearth which body systems are in trouble and apply supportive measures to restore balance through diet and lifestyle changes and short-term therapeutic doses of professionally targeted supplements.
The goal of functional medicine is person-centred rather than disease-centred to establish lifelong optimal health, not just absence of disease.
A long-term approach...
Drugs and medications treat symptoms of disease without necessarily addressing their cause; it's like putting a sticking plaster over a dirty wound and expecting it to heal well. So using nutritional therapy and the functional medicine model
I look for the roots, drivers and triggers of your condition for long-term results for your physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Reach me here in Derbyshire!
