A nutritional therapist assesses a person’s nutritional needs to achieve normal physiological function. This means the maintenance of homeostasis, a position of wellbeing we all seek, but many fail to achieve. Nutritional therapy is not a one pill wonder: it is a change in lifestyle to bring your body back to optimum health. Although you may see some immediate improvements it can take the body time to come back into balance.
We look at – Previous medical history, Prescription medications – past and present, Herbal and natural supplement, Family history. We dig deeper into our body systems – such as gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, endocrine function, reproductive systems, allergies and immunity, respiratory tract, urinary tract, cardiovascular system, musculo-skeletal system, skin. We discuss food intake.
If time allows Susan will also send out a two week food diary, since focusing the mind on what you really eat will assist in the consultation.
Following on from your consultation you will be provided with a personalised plan, discussing the consultation and providing advice to support you nutritionally.
Assessments are also available via post and e-mail for those that are unable or attend a Skype or phone consultation.
