‘Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.’ [CNHC]
At London Bioidentical Hormones, we believe that having a solid foundation of nourishment through food is vital for optimal health.
We believe in the power of real food (whole, unprocessed and unrefined) that is high in quality (grass-fed/wild, organic, local and sustainable) and cooked using healthy cooking methods. No two individuals are the same or have the same needs, however, we believe that meals based on a real food approach, coupled with individual variation, is hugely beneficial for most people.
Through clinical experience, we have seen that often the simplest of changes can have the biggest impact, with this in mind, we start with the basics and work from there.
In keeping with our holistic approach, beyond food, we look at the way our client’s breath, sleep, handle stress, who their community is, their connection with nature, and much more.
