Nutritional Medicine provides a holistic outlook on how nutrition impacts health, the relationship between diet and disease, as well as a focused understanding of how nutritional, dietary and lifestyle factors impact ones wellbeing.
Nutritional Medicine combines food as medicine traditions and dietary therapy with recent scientific advances in nutritional biochemistry and therapeutics. We view food, diet and nutritional supplements from the perspective of their therapeutic potential. We provide dietary advice to our clients and prescribe nutritional supplements, to assist in the treatment of a broad range of health conditions.
As well as dietary planning, we may also recommend high quality, therapeutic strength Nutritional supplementation to help correct any biochemical imbalances in the body. We will use testing where necessary to establish baseline measures of specific nutrients and formulate an individualised supplementation plan accordingly.
A recognised Nutritional Medicine qualification covers in‐depth study in areas of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, research, nutritional biochemistry and clinical nutrition, dietary medicine, clinical case taking, communication and professional interaction.
