Nutritional Therapy: a scientific approach
Nutritional therapy is a science-based, individual approach to healthcare that promotes health and wellbeing using nutritional analysis and lifestyle assessment.
Nutrition refers to the food people eat and how it nourishes their bodies, whereas Nutrition Science is the scientific knowledge that looks at nutrient requirements for body maintenance, growth, activity and reproduction.
Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual's symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

The Science of Nutrition
There are two areas of science, biochemistry and physiology, that help us to see how nutrition relates to our physical health and well-being. Good nutrition promotes health and reduces the risk of adverse conditions such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.
A Nutritional Therapist will evaluate a person’s individual needs and uses the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.
