Nutritional medicine is a holistic approach to the interactions of both nutrition and environment on human health. Nutrients are the building blocks of our physical body. When the body is supplied with the correct balance of foods, vitamins and minerals we remain healthy.
Nutritional medicine draws on a holistic approach to healing which takes into account the whole person – mind, body and spirit. Nutritionists recognise that disease is complex and is caused by a combination of factors. This constitutes individualised care which is the cornerstone of holistic practice.
As a Nutritionist some of our responsibilities are:
- Consult with patients on an individual basis to assessment of their overall health and get a detailed case history from them
- Recommend and analyse laboratory tests, which give indications of illness, nutritional imbalances, functioning of organs such as the liver and the digestive system
- Explain the physiological impact of complex biochemical imbalances and nutritional deficiencies to educate your patient
- Develop a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan, which will include dietary recommendations, environmental medicine, counselling and nutritional supplements
- Conduct follow-up consults to monitor and evaluate patient progress and answer any questions they may have
- Refer patients to other health practitioners such as a GP, acupuncturist etc., as appropriate
- Keep comprehensive notes and records for each patient
- Provide advice and promote nutritional therapy to community groups and charities
- Carry out administrative tasks and business promotion.
