Naturopathic nutritional therapy and how it may benefit you
Nutritional therapists can profoundly help those who want to take positive action to improve their health through better dietary and lifestyle choices.
Naturopathic nutritional therapy is a science evidence-based, integrative healthcare discipline which supports the health and wellbeing of the whole person by identifying the root cause of ill health rather than simply treating the symptoms.
What we eat has a profound effect on our health and well being. As a nutritional therapist, I recognise that the nutritional and biological make-up of each person is unique, therefore, every person is holistically treated as an individual with dietary advice tailored to your specific needs.
I work closely with clients to identify and address nutritional and other underlying imbalances that may be preventing you from enjoying optimum health. I will create a personalised, practical and achievable nutrition, supplemental and lifestyle programme that fits around your daily life.
The Philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic nutritional therapy focuses on the interconnectedness of body, mind, emotions, social factors, and the environment, using natural, non-invasive techniques that promote health by supporting the body's own healing processes.
Principle 1: The healing power of nature - the body has the power to heal itself.
Principle 2: Identify and treat the cause - seek the underlying cause of a disease rather than simply suppressing symptoms.
Principle 3: First, do no harm. Only safe and natural therapies are employed.
Principle 4: Treat the whole person - an individual is seen as a complex interaction of physical, emotional, social and other factors.
Principle 5: The therapist as teacher - educating and empowering patients to adopt a healthy lifestyle and diet.
Principle 6: Prevention is the best cure.
Principle 7: Establishing health and wellness.
My goal is to empower you to take control of your health, helping you to understand the underlying cause of your ill health and the steps needed to take in order to address these issues.
