What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is a complementary medicine which uses nutrition science to promote health, optimum body function, and individualised care.

Registered Nutritional Therapists address nutritional imbalances by assessing how they are affecting an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. Nutritional Therapy is relevant for those looking to optimise their health and well being, in addition to those with chronic health conditions.

Body function, protection against disease and environmental changes are all influenced by the nutrients we eat. In certain cases diet can be a risk factor for many diseases. Though an individual’s genetic makeup will determine just how much diet can affect our health, many dietary chemicals can alter our gene configuration.  Thus, dietary intervention can be an invaluable tool to help prevent or to alleviate chronic disease.

I consulted Marcelle about menopausal symptoms. Her investigations were very thorough and I found her extremely easy to talk to. She made some great suggestions and I learned a lot of good tips about foods that have really helped to reduce my symptoms, plus I feel so much better generally.
