Nutritional Therapy represents the union between science (as expressed by the branches of biochemistry and nutrition) and naturopathy (drug free medicine).

In its essence, nutritional therapy aims to promote health and optimal condition of one’s body.
Its approach is holistic and it sets to treat the body as a whole instead of just attempting to cure it one symptom at a time.
At first instance, it helps to achieve the sometimes difficult task of nutritional balance, but it does not limit its ambition there; furthermore, it also helps the body to maintain that balance and stay as healthy as possible.
Nutritional therapy is particularly based on the belief that every single person is unique and should be treated as such; the common practice of ‘one size fits all’ is completely disregarded, thus ensuring that every single client gets the treatment they personally need.
The therapy has proven suitable for both individuals who seek to enhance and promote their health and well-being as well as people who suffer from chronic diseases.

There are different levels of nutritional therapy and practitioners: there are nutritional therapists, who are fully independent professionals and who aid people with cronic illnesses that sometimes cannot be addressed adequately via the conventional methods of medicine; dietitians provide adequate eating plans for individuals with various medical conditions; furthermore, nutrition scientists promote scientific research and could provide general information about healthy eating but are not trained to practice clinically; last but not least, there are nutrition advisers who offer general advice on nutrition as part of a healthy lifestyle, to promote weight management or to support another therapy (for example, massage therapy).
