Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is the application of evidence-based nutritional science to achieve optimal health and peak performance using supportive coaching techniques.

It focuses on the therapeutic aspects of certain foods for the management of several health conditions, and takes into consideration that each client is unique and that there is no one-size-fits-all eating plan that works for everyone.

Nutritional Therapists use several different tools to assess possible nutritional imbalances and understand how these may be contributing to presenting signs and symptoms:

* Explore medical history and health timeline
* Assess biochemistry through functional testing
* Consider any previous tests

By supporting physiological systems through diet and lifestyle, Nutritional Therapy aims to get to the root cause and resolve any imbalances and improve health and daily functioning. This can lead to people moving in the right direction on the health continuum, resulting in more vitality and a greater sense of wellbeing.

Nutritional Therapy is recognised as complementary medicine and registered nutritional therapists study for a minimum of 3 years. It is particularly relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, but also for those aiming to enhance their health and overall wellbeing.

It is never recommended as a replacement for medical advice and I consult closely with medical professionals that may already be working with my clients.

* Eating plans to optimise nutrition
* Shopping lists & recipe ideas
* Behavioural changes & lifestyle management
* Targeted supplement protocols

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NUTRITIONAL THERAPY FOR ME?

Nutritional Therapists are trained to understand how nutrients and other lifestyle factors impact individual physiology, which may result in body systems shifting out of balance, presenting as signs and symptoms of illness.

These imbalances may include hormone dysregulation, challenged detoxification, lack of energy, poor immunity, chronic inflammation and digestive dysfunction. Like peeling an onion, the consultation process starts with exploring your health timeline, symptoms and goals.

The initial focus is to build strong foundations of healthy eating to optimise nutrient intake and rebalance body systems. When necessary we explore more deeply to uncover the root cause of any underlying imbalances.

We can help you address factors that may have impacted your health such as nutrient deficiency, stress, lack of sleep and hormonal changes. Our aim is that together we build a programme that helps you reach sustainable health and wellness.

 Clients Testimonials

I have just completed Ami’s 3 month gut healing programme. I was a bit apprehensive about doing it because I didn’t feel like I had gut problems, but Ami reassured me that it was the right course of action.

I have to say my skin looks and feels so good, my hormonal issues are under control, my headaches have gone, I’m sleeping through the night and I’ve even lost some weight. I haven’t felt this good in so long!

TB

I have just finished the two week Gut Cleanse and Reset program, and I can’t actually believe how great I feel. My mind is much clearer and my energy levels have increased dramatically. Plus I have lost weight without having felt hungry really at all. The food has been easy to make and delicious, with some recipes and ingredients I haven’t tried before. It has rejuvenated my diet and I am definitely going to carry on.

Thank you Ami for your guidance and support!

Last year I got an IBS diagnosis and since then I’ve been struggling to keep my symptoms under control. A friend recommended Ami, so after a very helpful chat, I decided to do her 3 month gut programme. It was so in depth, we worked on areas I didn’t even think of. I now feel really confident managing my IBS and any flare ups and I now know my triggers. This programme has given me so much confidence.

Thank you Ami!
