Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of the science of nutrition to support the biochemical and physiological processes that are crucial to health. This approach recognises that diet and lifestyle are among the factors that most profoundly influence the body, and it recognises biochemical individuality. The key focus of Nutritional Therapy is to achieve wellbeing and good health by balancing and sustaining the function, structure and energy processes of the body.

Who can benefit from Nutritional Therapy?
Anyone! Your first action should always be to see your GP to rule out serious disease and get the medical treatment or advice you need.  Having done that, seeking advice to optimise your diet is the next step towards optimising your health.  And, you don’t need to be unwell to see a Nutritional Therapist.   If you are a sports enthusiast you may want to give your performance that competitive edge.  Good nutrition is fundamental to health and fitness.

How long will it take for me to feel better?
It really depends on what you want to achieve. How quickly you respond will also depend on how committed you are to making the recommended changes.

Will I have to take supplements?
Not necessarily and not if you don’t want to.  However, if you have nutrient deficiencies then using the correct supplements may speed up your recovery.

Where do I buy supplements?
These can be ordered for you and delivered to your door.  Only the highest quality supplements are recommended by Nutritional Health Solutions.

Will I have to take a lot of tests?
Again not necessarily, but under some circumstances tests can help a great deal in deciding the best programme to help you get better.  If you have any worries or concerns let your Nutritional Therapist know.

What if I am taking medicine prescribed by my GP?
This is fine, but it is very important that you let your Nutritional Therapist know what you are taking and how much because some supplements and medications interact.  Please do not stop taking any medications without the consent of your doctor.  You need to keep your doctor informed at all times.
