What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional Therapy involves the application of nutrition health and science in order to promote optimum health and prevent disease. It usually involves dietary intervention and, if appropriate the sensible use of dietary supplements. Nutritional therapy can help to alleviate a wide range of conditions including weight loss, chronic fatigue, lack of energy, food intolerances, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes yype II, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and eczema just to name a few. Nutritional Therapy considers the underlying causes of a condition, and treats the person as a whole, not just the symptom.
Vitology Nutrition also offers individual personalised nutritional advice and support including Nutrigenomics and DNA Testing (covering aspects of health ranging from weight management to analysing metabolic areas associated with chronic disease).
What to expect
Prior to your appointment you will need to complete a health questionnaire and 3 day food and lifestyle diary which should be returned prior to your first consultation, so that a full clinical history can be obtained. The consultation process will last for one hour. Once I have established what may be the underlying cause of your condition, we will work together on formulating an individually tailored nutritional and lifestyle programme over the coming weeks. This may include lab testing and/or the recommendation of supplements if deemed appropriate.
I will then arrange a follow up in approximately 4-6weeks’ time, at which point we will discuss how you have been, what benefits you have seen and if there are any changes that need to be made to your programme.
In order to see the full benefit of your nutrition programme, and to give your body enough time to heal, a minimum of three consultations is usually required.
