Nutritional therapy is a way of allowing people to achieve optimal health through personalised nutrition and lifestyle support. It looks at the whole body and how are systems are interlinked and addresses any underlying root causes rather than just dealing with the symptoms.
It is a food first approach and uses a range of methods to understand people’s levels of health and identify any potential underlying nutritional imbalances that may be linked to their symptoms. Nutritional Therapists may well use supplements, functional laboratory testing and other healthcare professionals such as chiropractors or acupuncturists to support a client where necessary.
Everyone is unique and nutritional therapy treats people this way, as changes to diet work best when tailored to an individual.

The word ‘nutritionist’ is not a protected title and so unfortunately anyone can call themselves a nutritionist and offer services without any training. That is why it is always best to look for professionals registered to accredited governing bodies.
Nutritional Therapists will have studied for many years and be registered with professional bodies such as the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP).
Nutritional Therapists will use evidence and research to back up their advice and plans for every client and continuously learning and building on their knowledge which is also a requirement of the professional bodies, so you know you are getting access to expert up to date advice.
You also get dieticians who will have also studied for years to achieve their qualifications and dieticians are often found working within the NHS to created diet plans for patients with certain health conditions.
