Understanding Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition and health science to enable individuals to maximize their health potential.

Nutritional therapy aims to improve the health of the individual by changing diet, lifestyle and using dietary supplements. This is done by assessing symptoms and lifestyle as well as current diet and by looking for the effects of nutritional deficiencies, food allergies and toxins.

The aim is to deal with the underlying cause of the illness not just the symptoms.
