Nutritional Therapy 

Jenny follows the Functional Medicine approach when working with clients.


Functional Medicine understands that each client is a unique and complex individual with both genetics and environment interplaying together to influence the development of disease or the maintenance of health.


She believes in biochemical individuality, which simply means that all the individuals have different dietary needs and therefore there is no one diet that suits everybody.


Nutritional Therapy works as a complementary therapy for those going through or finished conventional treatments.  It works to support the individual as a whole.


FUNCTIONAL TESTING

Occasionally, the need for Functional Testing will be required and I may feel it is necessary to recommend a Functional Diagnostic Test. Using innovative and sophisticated clinical testing, and depending on the test chosen, the test provides information on the functioning of organs, systems, hormones, the presence of food intolerance/s, the status of the ecology within the bowel or nutritional imbalances.


Nutritional imbalances are often at the root of many complex, chronic health conditions. Many regular laboratory tests measure the indications of disease, which can be restrictive in understanding the total health picture.


The reason a laboratory test may be recommended will always be discussed with you, along with costs and the time taken to receive results.  Tests are based on saliva, blood, urine and stool.
