Nutritional therapy uses nutrition science as a tool to promote health with individual care. Looking at the mind body and soul to see what is going on from every aspect of your life, from diet through to your environment and your physical life style, even addressing your emotions and stress levels can assist in the movement towards optimum health and a general feeling of wellness and energy. Although nutritional therapy can be used for individuals with chronic conditions, it can be used by someone just looking to address their general health and well-being.
Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complimentary medicine and is never used as a replacement for medical advice. Any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms will always be referred to their GP.

A consultation with Kate
Kate sees clients at her home in Wiltshire or via Skype.
Prior to the initial consultation you will be sent a food diary to complete.

Kate may also look at good quality nutritional supplementation at a therapeutic dose, to help your body to correct any imbalances that are there. If this is done she will only suggest researched and tested companies supplements, this is always discussed with the client and as always diet comes first!
