Functional Medicine Nutritional Therapy


Nutritional therapy is an individual-centered approach to healthcare that employs assessment and intervention using nutritional, lifestyle-based and related health sciences in order to assist the individual to optimize his or her physiological, emotive, cognitive and physical function.

Well-being and good health are a consequence of metabolic homeostasis, where the individual maintains equilibrium in his or her throughput of energy to sustain body function, structure and information. Supporting homeostasis is the key focus of nutritional therapy, which in turn recognises that diet and lifestyle are among the factors that most profoundly influence it. Homeostasis is maintained by the constant adjustment of biochemical and physiological pathways by both endogenous and exogenous means.

Functional Medicine Nutritional Therapy


Functional medicine offers a personalised and proactive approach to help you taken an active role in your own health.

The approach considers the body as an integrated system and aims to unravel the causes and triggers of symptoms.

Functional medicine is a personalised approach, which takes a holistic view of the individual to understand the factors, which may contribute to health problems. This involves taking a detailed case history to explore the interactions between lifestyle genetic and other factors, which may influence health.

It offers a proactive and personalized approach working with clients to help them take an active role in their own health.

Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been repeatedly shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous,respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary [skin, hair, nails]). Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations are support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood-sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health and tolerance to a broad range of food groups.
