Nutritional Therapy is a science-based, individual-centred approach to healthcare that applies nutrition, lifestyle and health-based science to promote optimum physiological health, emotional wellbeing and disease prevention.
We all know there can be an direct effect of what we eat and drink on our health. yet here is more to nutritional therapy than just being told what to should or shouldn’t eat or what foods are good for you. Nutritional therapy takes into consideration the complex balance of internal and external factors which can have an influence on the working balance and homeostasis in body as a whole. It recognises that our bodies are each biochemically unique so foods beneficial to one person may not necessarily be so to another, the importance of providing the body with the correct nutrition for it to function optimally. as well as lifestyle-related issues, including environment and movement, and genetic predisposition.
In short Nutritional Therapy focuses on the person, not the ‘one size fits all’ healthcare approach, to identify any imbalance or dysfunction that might be contributing to a specific health condition , and help manage it naturally so as to restore healthy body function.
Making any change to diet or lifestyle, even with the knowledge that it could enhance your quality of life, can be challenging. Jo provides a supportive environment by working closely with you to develop a personalised plan over a suitable time-frame tailored to your individual needs. Jo will keep you motivated and inspired so that your plan is enjoyable, achievable and easy to follow.
Nutritional Therapy is a recognised complementary therapy which can be used on its own, or alongside any other therapies. In the interest of safe management and to ensure a proposed nutrition plan is compatible with a clients’ medical history, including careful consideration to drug-nutrient interactions, Jo works to exchange relevant medical information with the General Practitioner and medical team responsible for her clients’ care.
If you are looking for support to make changes to your current diet to help improve symptoms of ill-health, or simply to focus on promoting health to optimise energy levels, performance and maximise your wellbeing and longevity then nutritional therapy may be right for you.
