WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?

Nutritional Therapy is a practical approach & application of the latest research in nutrition and health sciences to promote optimum health and peak performance.

Also, Blanka is using the Functional Medicine model, which is a client-centred & science-based approach, addressing the root causes of individual health concerns rather than just particular symptoms.

Functional Medicine, takes into consideration your biochemical individuality, diet, lifestyle, environment, mental and emotional state, existing medical conditions and genetic factors.

Holistic approach allows the nutritionist to support your health in a personalised manner so that you can restore the body’s natural balance and prevent disease.

Nutrient deficiency is widespread nowadays leading to fatigue, depression, digestive problems or skin disorders.

It is often due to intensive farming methods which deplete the nutrients in the soil as well as pollution, stressful lifestyle and over-consumption of processed food.

It is the cumulative effect of decisions that we make about our Health & Wellbeing that can lead to many chronic diseases such as :

  • diabetes
  • cardiovascular disease
  • cancer
  • auto-immune conditions
  • mental health disorders

Do you experience regularly any of these symptoms?

  • energy slumps
  • cravings for sweets or stimulants
  • headaches
  • chronic pain
  • gastrointestinal dysfunction (bloating, heartburn, reflux, constipation, diarrhoea)
  • skin eruptions
  • poor cognition
  • poor sleep
  • anxiety
  • negativity and depression
  • weight gain
  • morning stiffness
  • feeling sluggish

Did you answer “yes” multiple times?

Changing eating patterns might seem challenging (especially if you suffer from any chronic conditions).

That’s why a personalised consultation allows you to get tailored nutritional advice that suits your individual needs.

Sometimes we think that we are eating a supposedly” healthy diet”, but foods that may be beneficial to one person might not be right for another.

A professional review of your dietary habits could reveal potential dietary mistakes that may be contributing to your health conditions. Book your FREE consultation to find out more.

What to expect from a  nutritional consultation?

In all cases, a FREE 30-minute consultation is recommended to discuss if Nutritional Therapy consultation is what you are looking for and if your particular health condition is within Blanka’s field of expertise.

After the free introduction, Blanka will email you a Food Diary Form and Health & Lifestyle questionnaire for you to complete.

A holistic approach is necessary to understand your health concerns thoroughly, assess your nutritional status and learn about environmental, genetic and other factors that may affect your health & wellbeing.

The completed Food Diary allows Blanka to customize new dietary routine and prepare an action plan, including your favourite food (whenever possible) so that your new diet & lifestyle change is enjoyable, practical and sustainable.

Other factors such as impaired digestion or absorption, a hormonal or brain chemical imbalance, the compromised immune system might need further investigation.
