What is Nutritional Therapy?

Basket of fruit and vegetables: nutritional therapyNutritional therapy is a complementary therapy that works with individuals to assess personal nutritional requirements based on factors such as age, diet, lifestyle, symptoms and health history. A nutritional therapist then works with you to develop a nutritional programme that suits you and your lifestyle.

Before your first consultation you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire, providing details of your diet, symptoms, health history and lifestyle, in order to enable an initial assessment to take place. At the consultation, the nutritionist will gather additional information from you to answer any questions raised by the questionnaire and to ensure that all information provided has been fully understood. After discussion, the therapist will outline some of the possible areas to focus on to improve your health.  At The Nutrition Link we work closely with the orthodox medical profession and refer clients to their doctor for medical tests if any areas for concern are identified during the consultation.

“ I came to Paula after enduring a year and a half of immense pressure and strain in my life following the loss of my beloved father. Through her calm approach, gentle nature and a listening ear, we were able to introduce natural supplements to rebalance my body, which in turn helped me rebalance my mind as well”


A nutritional programme will be agreed with you to encompass dietary and lifestyle changes. Supplements may also be recommended. One or more tests may be suggested, for example to identify any food sensitivities or to establish how well you are digesting your food.

Consultations take place at our Hertfordshire clinics at 156 Beech Road, St. Albans and at the Natural Health Store, Welwyn Garden City. It may also sometimes be possible for them to be held at other locations
