Why choose a one-to-one appointment?
If you do a simple search on the internet for the word “diet”
…you’ll get over 500 million results
There is so much nutrition information at your fingertips that you could read for the rest of your life and still not know what to believe!
Truth is, there never will be one diet that fits all…
Yes certainly there is some good nutrition advice out there, some you may even find quite effective (for a short time)…
…but the simple truth is that you may struggle your whole life trying one diet after the next, because none are personalised to your needs.
What makes Functional Dietetics different?
1. Your route to treatment is personalised.
Orthodox (or traditional) nutritional medicine works on defined clinical pathways for treatment, based on the current consensus of scientific evidence.
You turn up sick, get provided the treatment and you (hopefully) get better.
This doesn’t always work…
…what if your concern doesn’t ‘fit’ this pathway?
…what if you don’t look at all the possible causes?
You end up ‘spinning your wheels’ and not getting better.
2. You don’t have to wait to get sick.
The World Health Organisation defines ‘health’ as:
“Health is not just the absence of disease”
Being ‘healthy’ is not just the opposite of not being sick!
Surely you would rather prevent getting sick if you could?
Day to day we all sit on a spectrum of being perfectly healthy and not so well.
This is called the Functional Range.
…and it’s up to You to decide what end of the spectrum you’d like to be on.
…many of us just end up floating towards becoming unwell before we decide to do something!
But You have a choice.
You can take a detailed, personalised approach to your health and nutrition
…forget the fads
…ditch the diets
…figure out the root cause of your health concerns
…take real steps to addressing Your health and be functionally well today
…and help reduce the chance of illness in the future by eating right for you
So let’s start pushing your functional range towards vitality
