What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing. Nutritional therapy may be helpful for a number of things including, but not limited to:

  • Optimising energy
  • Optimizing digestion
  • Improving ability to adapt to modern life-style pressures
  • Maintaining healthy blood sugar balance
  • Maintaining healthy body weight
  • Optimizing the immune system
  • Promoting healthy sleeping patterns
  • Supporting mental well-being
  • Promoting healthy skin and hair
  • Supporting the endocrine system (hormonal and adrenal system)
  • Generally promoting well-being and maintenance of health

Nutritional Therapy is not a substitute for general practitioner/medical advice or treatment, and Mette will refer patients to their general practitioner or other health care practitioners where necessary.
