What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of science behind nutrients and wider food components, and their influence on your health and wellbeing. Understanding the impact of food on the function of your body, protection against disease, restoration of health and determining how you are able to respond to environmental changes.
There are 5 key principles which underpin Nutritional Therapy:
recognition of evidence that supports a personalised approach to nutrition and wellbeing – not a one-size-fits-all approach
recognising and understanding the variation in metabolic function between individuals. This may be genetic, epigenetic or environmental differences
BALANCE OF INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL FACTORS
understanding that balance is important for physiological harmony
PROMOTION OF ORGAN RESERVE
enhancing health through the maintenance of physiological health
your physiological health functions as a network of systems rather than individual systems functioning independently.
