What is Nutritional Therapy?
The application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. At TELondon, we use dietary adjustments and lifestyle changes to improve your health and wellbeing. By analysing your diet and eating habits we can establish what you need more and less of to achieve optimal health. This is a positive approach to health and allows you to take control of your symptoms.

Nutritional therapy is suitable everyone. A full medical history is always taken to ensure that named diseases and pharmaceutical drugs are taken into consideration to avoid contraindications and unsafe practice. Here are some conditions which are commonly addressed with nutritional therapy:

  • Adrenal dysfunction
  • Allergies
  • Cholesterol concerns
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive complaints (bloating, lower abdominal pain)
  • Female hormone issues
  • Fertility (male and female)
