Using the Functional Medicine Model LDN Nutrition works with a wide range of clients and use diet and lifestyle education and advice to help support their health.
What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individuals’ symptoms and health concerns.
We consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
What does a Nutritional Therapy session typically involve?
Before the first consultation, we provide you with a health and nutrition questionnaire to complete. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes and in this time we will ask detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet. We then evaluate your individual needs and develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme for you.
Please note that Nutritional Therapy is in no way intended as a replacement for medical advice.
Practitioners frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the clients’ care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
