What to expect
A nutritional therapist’s work starts with a client consultation, which involves the setting of wellbeing goals, a detailed analysis of your diet and lifestyle, and medical case history.
A therapist will then piece together a holistic health picture and indentify any functional imbalances in order to create a individual strategy for optimal health that fits into your life. A nutritional therapist will not only give you advice and guidance but also support and motivate you through the process. Short to medium term supplement programmes are often suggested; your nutritional therapist will talk you through all advice and make sure you have a clear plan which suits you. Taking control of your diet and lifestyle is the best way to help you to take back control of your body and wellbeing.
