YOU NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

Nutritional Therapy

The whole concept of a personalised nutrition plan is centred around the concept of individuality. We are all biochemically, anatomically and psychologically unique – which means that a nutritional approach, even for the same condition, will vary between individuals.

Nutritional therapy is not designed to be a replacement for medical advice; however, as a recognised complementary medicine, nutritional therapists will seek to work alongside other healthcare professionals involved in your care. Clients with any “red flag” signs or symptoms will always be referred to their medical professional.

Functional Medicine

The functional medicine principles used in nutritional therapy seek to find the underlying cause of a disease or illness. This means going beyond focusing on symptoms only; but looking at the interplay of various systems in the body and its environment, your health history and current diet and lifestyle.

Areas for Support

Some common areas that nutritional therapy is used to support include:

  • Weight loss
  • Low energy levels
  • Stress management
  • Digestive Disorders (eg. IBS, IBD)
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Skin disorders (eg. Acne, eczema, psoriasis)
  • Female health issues (eg. PMS, PCOS, endometriosis)
  • Fertility
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Blood sugar control
  • Sports training
  • Immune support

INDIVIDUAL Testing

To help provide a truly individualised nutrition plan and to help identify certain imbalances and deficiencies, laboratory testing is often recommended. As well as identifying particular issues, testing can also help to rule them out, which can be just as important when it comes to providing your personalised nutritional strategy.

The type of test your nutritional therapist may recommend will vary depending on your current state of health, family history or particular health goal.

Some commonly used tests used include:

  • Food Intolerance Testing (IgG)
  • Comprehensive Stool Analysis
  • Adrenal Stress Profile
  • Male and Female Hormone Panels
  • Essential Fatty Acid Balance
  • Vitamin and Mineral Status
  • Genetic Testing

All testing is carried out in external laboratories including Genova Diagnostics, Lorisian, Cambridge Nutritional Sciences and DNAFit.

Testing is carried out at an additional charge to the consultation fee. You Nutritional Therapy receives a percentage from testing charges, which is reinvested into continued professional development.

Supplements

Food will always be the main source of nutrients in You Nutritional Therapy plans. Supplements are usually included also for a variety of reasons:

  • To literally “supplement” the nutrients from food. Modern farming and food production methods mean that foods may not provide the same levels of nutrients that they once did for our ancestors.
  • To support certain conditions additional nutrients may be needed above and beyond what a food plan on its own can provide.
  • To help correct deficiencies that may be identified through testing

You Nutritional Therapy does not promote the sale of any particular supplement brand. This allows us to select the most suitable supplements, based on the nutritional therapist’s professional judgement, from a range of professional, high quality brands.

Clients are provided specific information on which products to use and are entitled to a 15% discount from The Natural Dispensary.

Your health questionnaire, consultations and test results will provide information for your nutritional therapist to take any contraindications and safety into account.

Professional athletes will be recommended supplements from the Informed Sports list to ensure that all batches are tested and free from banned substances.
