The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) describes Nutritional Therapy as follows:
“Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.
Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.
Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing”.
Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach to maximising health through individually formulated nutritional and lifestyle changes.
