Nutritional therapists recognise that every person is unique and, therefore, has an individual set of dietary requirements. It is a nutritional therapist’s job to establish what improvements or changes an individual can make to their diet and lifestyle to help support problems that they may be experiencing or in working towards specific health goals.

Nutritional therapy is recognised as complementary medicine, appropriate for both those with chronic conditions and those looking to prevent future illness.

Key points about nutritional therapists:

  • Can help to play a role in the treatment of symptoms caused by an illness, and in the optimisation of good health.
  • Often work with chronic conditions such as allergies, digestive and bowel disorders, hormonal imbalances, weight loss, stress and low energy.
  • Help individuals to meet their health goals.
  • Take into account the unique dietary needs of each individual.
