Registered nutritional therapists use a variety of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to individual health concerns and symptoms. Nutritional therapy is recognized as a complimentary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as for those looking to achieve optimum health and wellbeing.
