Nutritional Therapy at Fulham Osteopaths

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, performance and prevention of disease. It is about understanding the relationship between food and health.
Nutritional Therapy focuses on an individual’s medical condition alongside their diet and lifestyle to correct nutritional imbalances. It takes into account the nutritional requirements for your particular age, gender, genetic make-up, medical history, dietary patterns, lifestyle, and other factors. Since these all vary from person to person, the advice is tailored to you as an individual and is given along with practical recommendations to help you achieve your goals.

The body requires over 45 different minerals and vitamins for all its processes to work efficiently. It is possible for the body to make some of these itself but it does require the raw ingredients to make these from the diet. Others it can only obtain from the diet, so it’s essential that these are included in your food intake. Long term nutrient deficiencies or imbalances can lead to more serious symptoms and complications which is why good nutrition is far reaching and can benefit all ages.
