What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is a patient-centred and evidence-based approach to healthcare that recognises the biological uniqueness of each patient. In Nutritional Therapy, protocols are tailored towards maintaining health and promoting vitality and wellness by identifying biochemical imbalances and nutrient depletions, and by incorporating nutrient rich foods and supplement protocols.
Nutritional therapy is based on a Functional Medicine framework, which addresses the underlying causes of disease by treating the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. The framework uses a personalised approach that empowers patients to take an active role in their own health, and offers a powerful clinical model for assessment, treatment and prevention of chronic disease.
