WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of optimal health. It identifies nutritional and biochemical imbalances in the body that lead to ill health. Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body. Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations include support to achieve optimum energy levels and gastrointestinal health, maintaining a healthy blood sugar balance, supporting emotional and psychological wellbeing, and better understanding tolerance levels to a broad range of food groups.
Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is suitable for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and overall wellbeing.
Nutritional Therapy can support with a wide range of health concerns, including:
- Digestive issues
- Food sensitivities (allergies and intolerances)
- Hormonal imbalances (including female specific issues, PMS)
- Stress management (including sleep disorders)
- Mood fluctuations
- Lack of energy
- Immune dysfunction
- Skin complaints
- Healthy ageing
Michaella has a special interest in chronic pain and fatigue conditions, autoimmunity and female health.
