Nutritional Therapy is a science-based field of healthcare that uses nutrition to obtain peak performance.

It manages chronic health problems by acknowledging and treating the ‘whole person’.

Nutritional Therapy applies the appropriate use of optimal supplements, nutraceuticals and medical foods at therapeutic doses that are individualised to each person’s unique needs.

It acknowledges the emotional state of the patient and encourages a positive attitude which is crucial on the road to recovery and optimal health.

It is not about ‘fad’ diets and calorie counting or drastic restrictions, rather it focuses on practical science-based advice and the principles of Functional Medicine are applied.

Lifestyle changes are suggested and the person is encouraged to eat a varied ‘rainbow-coloured’ diet where optimal nutrition can be achieved.

There is a respect for the vitality of cells & tissues and the body’s ability to heal itself the way nature intended.  Our inner healing force is activated when it receives the right natural substances to enable the body to function at its fullest potential.
