Nutritional Therapy is suitable for adults and children alike. Nutrition Science is considered to be a complementary therapy, which can be used alongside conventional medicine.

What is Nutritional Therapy?
A Nutritional Therapist works closely with their clients, usually on an individual basis, to conduct a holistic assessment of their nutritional requirements. First, they listen to their clients’ symptoms and health concerns. Then, they use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand nutritional factors affecting their health. Finally, they compile an individual programme for diet and supplementation. They let their patients understand how these may contribute to alleviate, or prevent illness and contribute to an individual optimal health. In this way, it will help them improve their overall health and wellbeing.

How does Nutritional Therapy work:
What happens in a consultation?
- Prior to the consultation, you will receive an online questionnaire to complete.
- The first consultation lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes. Emily will use this time to find out more about your health, health history, symptoms, diet and lifestyle. She will discuss whether functional tests would be useful to determine underlying causes or nutritional deficiencies. Then, she will recommend nutritional supplements where appropriate.
- Following the consultation, Emily will send you a comprehensive Health Optimisation Plan summarising your health goals and providing dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
- You will also receive a Supplement Plan where relevant.
- 3 to 4 weeks later, you will meet again to review progress and adapt any advice. Following the consultation, Emily will create a new Health Optimisation Plan
- Further consultations will take place depending on the how quickly your body responds to Nutritional Therapy and the severity of your symptoms
