Nutritional Therapy is the appliance of nutritional science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Practitioners of nutritional therapy use a range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances, therefore understanding how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and to help support the body towards maintaining optimum health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine. It is relevant for those individuals who are looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and also for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with or consult a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other qualified healthcare professionals.
