Benefits Of Nutritional Therapy

While it’s really amazing to see the difference dietary changes can make with such serious conditions, nutritional therapy is not limited to these conditions. The list below expands on the areas where positive dietary changes can help improve the quality of your life:

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight

Supporting good mental health, benefiting mood, reducing anxiety etc

Improving energy levels and supporting better sleep

Digestive issues including IBS, dysbiosis and leaky gut

Female reproductive health including PMS and menopause

During the initial consultation we will take time to go through and examine your existing diet and lifestyle. Recommended dietary and lifestyle changes can be implemented at your own pace (agreed during the consultation).

My goal is to effect diet and lifestyle changes over a period of time that will last. As our bodies get used to eating “real” foods they will begin to want these rather than the processed alternatives. You may even be surprised at how easy it is to make these changes and how much you enjoy eating what may have seemed unpalatable six months ago.
