Functional Nutrition

Functional nutrition is a holistic, integrated and individualised approach in assessing clients, their unique health challenges, bio individual characteristics and life circumstances, helping to change their relationship with food and diet to achieve better health outcomes. Functional nutrition fills the gap between the more clinical practice and expertise of functional medicine and the needs of patients to understand their health condition. Its goal is to empower patients to take back self-control, achieve their health goals, and be supported practically and empathetically along the way. Consultations involve collecting and collating detailed information to help the practitioner understand the whole person and to then consider the interaction of biological and environmental factors that may be contributing to signs and symptoms. Treatment plans based on good quality nutrition, enhancement of lifestyle factors and judicious use of supplements, are devised to help resolve underlying root causes. The general therapeutic nutritional approach aims to:
  • improve digestive function
  • balance blood sugar
  • reduce inflammation
  • improve gastrointestinal flora
  • improve liver function
  • reduce toxicity
Feedback from patients helps direct individualisation of treatment plans. It is a respectful, therapeutic relationship.
