What is our idea of being healthy? The World Health Organisation's definition of health is ‘a state of complete physical, mental and social
well-being, and not merely the absence of disease.’
What is Nutritional Therapy?
It applies evidence based nutrition science to promote health and wellbeing in the individual.
Every person is biochemically unique and as such has different nutritional requirements; nutritional therapy looks at the body as a whole, aiming to bring it into balance and support optimal health.

The cells in our bodies are carrying out thousands of vital functions every minute of every day. Sometimes it is a challenge to know the right foods to eat to achieve balance within your body so that you have optimal health, vitality and energy to enjoy life.
Often, just a few simple changes in the foods that you eat can result in significant benefit to both your physical and mental health.
Nutritional Therapy is a complementary medicine supporting those with chronic conditions as well as those who wish to enhance their overall health.
Nutritional therapy is not a replacement for medical advice.
Why do I need supplements when I eat a healthy diet?
Soils today are sadly depleted in many areas. The food industry has been known to process foods, then process them a little bit more...and this takes out a vast number of the naturally occurring nutrients, ones that we really do need on a daily basis.
We might well be eating a good diet but we are using up nutrients at a vast rate in our busy frenetic lives - at a much faster rate than our parents and grandparents did.
Also, stress can be a factor in depleting our essential nutrients. So sometimes we need to take supplements to boost the body’s internal repair mechanisms.
