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. This approach allows us to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.
Nutritional therapy is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with or 'consult' a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other suitably qualified healthcare professionals.
Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. We will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
What is Accessible Nutrition?
Nutrition advice and good health should be available to all, not just to those who have the time, energy and resources.
Some nutrition advice may not be realistic for those with reduced mobility or energy. Vitamin Dina welcomes individuals with additional challenges and helps them achieve their health goals, taking lifestyle, budget and ability into consideration.
Get nutritional support from a practitioner who understands those challenges and provides tailored support for each unique situation, making nutrition plans achievable and even enjoyable, by maximising nutrition with minimal effort.
Whether you have a disability, you’re a busy parent or generally low on time and energy, accessible nutrition can provide you with creative and practical solutions to help you optimise your health and embrace your uniqueness.
Reduced mobility and energy can be linked to many aspects of our wellbeing, such as:
Joint pain and inflammation
Decreased bone density
Constipation & bloating
Anxiety & depression
These symptoms can be supported with healthy lifestyle habits and don't have to be accepted as the norm. We are all wonderfully unique and there is no 'one size fits all' approach, nutrition advice can be tailored to work with your unique situation and lifestyle.
