WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN BOOKING A CONSULTATION?
Before the consultation, you will be sent a questionnaire regarding your current health concerns, medical history and lifestyle. You will be asked to keep a 4-day diet diary. Once this information is returned, a nutritional therapist will assess this information and will make up rapport and analyze the diet and current health. During the consultation, the nutritional therapist will do more in-depth questioning and then discuss a patient-centered nutrition plan, based on this information. A nutritional therapist will always try and create a plan with the client that suits the dietary needs, as well as the preferences of the client.
Nutritional Therapy focuses on natural unprocessed whole foods which heal the body and boost overall health. Where necessary, a Nutritional Therapist may also prescribe natural supplements in safe doses e.g. probiotics, vitamins & minerals to help alleviate certain symptoms or optimize nutritional status. However, natural foods are always the first line of treatment.
Nutritional Therapy is not intended to replace conventional medicines but to complement them, and, where necessary, dietary changes can be made under the supervision of a Medical Doctor.
