Nutritional therapy explained

Nutritional therapy is a science-based, personalised healthcare approach that identifies and treats the underlying causes of health issues. Through bespoke programmes it looks to restore health and improve function using dietary, lifestyle and exercise recommendations and, where necessary, supplementation. As such, it is a holistic approach to health.

Nutritional therapy recognises that we are all bio-chemically unique. This means that each of us has a unique response based on our genetic make up and interaction with our environment, as there exists a dynamic balance between external and internal factors.

The health symptoms that we experience are often a sign of deficiencies and dysfunction in our bodies. As such it is not just about what we eat, but also about how our bodies process and react to what we eat.

Avocado Nutrition’s protocols are based on a thorough analysis of each client’s unique story: their health issues and symptoms, their family medical and dietary history, their social, lifestyle and exercise history and the analysis of functional and biochemical tests.

Recommendations may include guidance on supporting the core systems in the body such as hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances, energy metabolism, detoxification, digestion and absorption, immunity and inflammatory function and structural imbalances from cellular membrane function to the musculoskeletal system.

Ultimately, the aim of Avocado Nutrition is to give your body the raw materials it needs to support the body’s innate ability to regulate and heal itself.

We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are. Adelle Davis
I love Anna’s approach to nutritional therapy. She has a very warm and relaxed but highly professional manner. I had several areas of health to address but Anna’s thoughtful analysis and well-presented, delicious recommendations made it easy for me to understand how they were connected and how I could improve my health by making changes to my diet. She obviously loves good food and has introduced me to new foods, new methods of preparing food and has given me great enthusiasm to continue to improve my diet and therefore my health. Alex, London
