Is the use of nutrients, from food and from supplements, to influence the function of the body, protect against disease and restore health if there are symptoms of disease.
Many people make dietary changes and self medicate with supplements but do not feel better for doing so. A Nutritional Therapist will thoroughly assess a patient's health and provide the specific nutritional information needed to help them feel well.
Nutritional Medicine can help those conditions that are treated by conventional medicine on the NHS. The difference is that Nutritional Medicine works to restore the function of your body rather than stopping a symptom with drugs. It gets to the root cause of the illness. We see many people who have been through the NHS or private health care and have found some relief but are looking for a way to heal the condition rather than simply stopping symptoms
