There is significant overlap between the principles of Functional Medicine and Nutritional Therapy. Nutritional Therapy is the application of the latest theories and research in nutrition and health sciences, to individuals seeking to manage chronic disease and promote optimum health.
This approach includes usage of 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. This allows to improve the physiological function of body systems and support the body towards maintaining health and wellbeing.
As with Functional Medicine, in Nutritional Therapy an individual’s genetic predisposition, medical conditions, medical treatments, environment and lifestyle factors are central considerations.
