“My work is not prescription, but rather description. We need education far more than we need medication.” (Andrew W. Saul)

Nutritional Therapy

As a Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist, I promote health, optimal performance and personalized care through a system of applied nutrition science. I am trained to use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances, and understand the impact they have on a client's symptoms and health concerns. This integrated approach allows me to work with my clients to address any nutritional balance issues, and assist them on a journey towards achieving and maintaining whole health.

Each client that comes through my door is totally unique, and can expect to be treated as such. I encourage clients to provide me with a full and detailed picture of their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, and work with them to offer personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes tailored to address their particular concerns.

Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complimentary medicine, with a long-term focus on improving the individual's overall picture of health. Rather than simply medicating to suppress symptoms in the short term, our goal is to seek out, and advise on ways to reduce or remove the underlying cause of the problem.

As such, this approach is particularly relevant for those with complex, chronic conditions, as well as those simply looking to support or "fine-tune" their overall health and wellbeing. I believe in open and honest collaboration with all health care providers and where appropriate, work alongside medical professionals to ensure my clients are receiving the most comprehensive care available. I never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice, and am trained to recognise symptoms and signs that require assessment by a conventional practitioner.

Nutritional Therapy is suitable for people of all ages. An initial consultation will last about 1 to 1 1⁄2 hours and I will ask you to keep a three day food diary and complete a health questionnaire before your appointment. If you require a follow up consultation these usually last about 1⁄2 to 1 hour. In addition to your personalised nutrition program I may recommend further testing and/or dietary supplements.
