What does a nutritional therapist do?
As a Nutritional Therapist I work with both children and adults to optimise their health through diet and lifestyle changes.
There is so much confusion around food today and I help you cut through the conflicting advice so you can feel confident that you’re nourishing yourself and your family in a way that’s sustainable and affordable.
For some clients I might use lab tests to identify imbalances or deficiencies for others we work on strategies to reduce sugar cravings and support weight loss
How I work with my clients:
What is the difference between a nutritional therapist, a dietician and a nutritionist?
Both registered Nutritional Therapy practitioners and dieticians are qualified to review an individual’s main health concerns and diet and make suggestions to support their health.
The main difference is that dietitians are statutorily regulated to diagnose and treat nutritional problems – typically in acute care hospital settings. On the other hand, registered Nutritional Therapists work mostly in the private sector providing individualised dietary and lifestyle recommendations to optimise health. As Nutritional Therapists we look beyond the acute to tackle the diet and lifestyle related risk-factors for chronic conditions like cancer, obesity and heart disease.
Prevention is at the heart of Nutritional Therapy and we use the latest science from genetic, epigenetic and nutrition research – alongside functional tests – to create individual recommendations.
While dietitians must follow Government dietary guidelines, Nutritional Therapists apply the latest nutritional science to each individual case. As a member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) I must provide annual proof that I am continuing my training and have to abide by specific codes of conduct to remain certified.
