What is Nutritional Therapy?
A Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) applies the latest research in nutrition and health sciences to manage chronic disease and promote optimum health. NTP training includes studying scientific principles about how the human body functions and the nutrients that it needs to thrive. Nutritional Therapists believe that all the systems of the body are linked and that chronic illness is preceded by physiological imbalances in a number of these systems. Focus, therefore, is on identifying and addressing these imbalances.
Every client is treated as an individual, with their own unique physiological makeup taken into account.
Nutritional Therapy can be beneficial in addressing many health concerns including:
- Low energy/ fatigue/constant tiredness
- Hormonal and reproductive issues, such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menopause and peri-menopause
- Mood related conditions, such as stress, anxiety and depression
- Children's health, learning and behavioral issues
- Digestive conditions, such as irritable bowl syndrome (IBS), constipation, diarrhea and bloating
- Weight management
- Skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
- Cardiovascular conditions, such as high cholesterol and blood pressure
- Musculoskeletal conditions such as rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis
- Food intolerances and allergies
These concerns can all be helped (and in many cases, alleviated) by making simple, yet effective improvements to your diet and lifestyle. A nutritional therapist can advise you on and support you in making these changes. It can be difficult (and confusing!) to know how to eat healthfully and in a way that nourishes your body, but Amy can help you do this in an easy and achievable way.
