It is my belief that symptoms and disease are an expression of underlying functional imbalances within different systems of the human body, i.e. our body communicating with us that something is out of sync. Simply treating these symptoms or disease states with pharmaceuticals may temporarily disguise the expression as a plaster might hide a graze. However, we might have failed to address why that symptom or disease has occurred in the first place and therefore we can expect it to keep coming back. I believe that through every forkful, we have the ability to alter the functioning of our physiological processes in order to find balance in expression of those symptoms and it is our aim to support you in doing just that. This is Nutritional Therapy.
However, even when we achieve optimal nutrient potential through Nutritional Therapy, we may not necessarily be benefiting from our efforts. This is because we are all unique in the way we absorb, process and utilise the nutrients we consume.
How do we know which area of our health needs support the most and if we are absorbing and utilising our nutrients? Work with a dietician or BANT Registered Nutritional Therapist, these are the ONLY nutrition titles that are qualified to work with you on a one-to-one basis.
I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist, registered with The British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), a voluntary professional body for Registered Nutritional Therapists.
