Nutritional therapy aims to assess the different biochemical and physiological process occurring in an individual and identify where imbalances maybe causing or contributing to health problems. Nutritional therapy uses an evidence-based and holistic approach in its assessment and management of a client’s symptoms in order to facilitate and enhance the body’s ability to heal itself through nutrition and lifestyle changes. Each person is seen as unique and therefore nutrition plans are bespoke.
Louise’s training and use of evidence based practice along with personal experience means she is able to successfully support clients in making nutritional changes that are effective and achievable. Following an in depth consultation she creates a bespoke plan for each client for a specific period of time before they are then reviewed (typically after 12 weeks). In addition to the nutritional changes, supplements can also be advised where appropriate.
Nutritional Therapy can support a wide range of specific health conditions (e.g. high cholesterol, arthritis, hormonal conditions such as thyroid and menopause, IBS, eczema, asthma) as well as non-specific conditions (digestive problems, fatigue, coping with a busy lifestyle). And now with genetic testing readily available nutritional therapy is also an excellent tool for health promotion.
In addition to working with adults, Louise also has additional training and experience of working with children and this is an area of specific interest.
Louise is always happy to offer a free 20 minute consultation to discuss whether nutritional therapy would be appropriate for you, either in person or by phone.
