What is Nutritional Therapy?

Health Advice

Also called Nutritional or Functional Medicine, nutritional therapy differs greatly from from orthodox medicine or dietetics. This long-standing therapy has evolved over the years into a scientific and comprehensive healthcare system. It is about investigating and understanding how and why your health has gone wrong or out of balance and addressing the causal factors of health problems, not just treating the symptoms.Many chronic long term conditions which have not responded to conventional treatment are often the result of underlying biochemical imbalances. These often respond well to professional nutritional therapy.healthy couple
