“Food is not just fuel. Food is about family, food is about community, food is about identity. And we nourish all those things when we eat well.”
At some time in our life we all come up against the hurdle of poor health, which can often result in long-term and chronic conditions. Like many therapists, KT’s own journey began with her family’s health, and as such she has extensive knowledge of supporting multiple allergies, ADHD and anxiety which she has managed though dietary and lifestyle modifications. This lead to her pursuing a formal qualification in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy.
Nutrients from our food provide the foundation for life within every cell of the body and KT is passionate about nutrition and helping to empower her clients to engage in self-care by choosing foods which nourish them as part of their own health journey. By addressing the root causes, the naturopathic principles she employs aim to support health and prevent illness, by encouraging the right conditions for the body to flourish.
Through nutritional therapy this holistic approach incorporates diet, lifestyle and other factors to produce a comprehensive assessment of the client’s current health, from which she can create a plan; individualised and tailor made to their needs. KT is comfortable working with both individuals and families.
She is a member of and regulated by the Naturopathic Nutritional Association (NNA) and the General Naturopathic Council (GNC)
WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based approach that uses nutrition science to promote health and wellbeing. Naturopathy is a philosophy and holistic healthcare system that recognises the healing power of nature.
Using the functional medicine model, this client-centred approach will take into account the presenting symptoms but will look beyond for the root cause of ill health and consider influences to health that may be coming from dietary, emotional, mental and structural factors. This truly holistic system to healing treats everyone as an individual. It encourages the body’s natural healing abilities and by doing so may be of benefit to many common health problems.
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.
