Nutritional therapy promotes the body’s natural healing mechanisms to optimise well being and bring relief to symptoms of ill health. It combines knowledge of human physiology, biochemistry and nutrient metabolism to provide the patient with the right balance of nutrients to function correctly.
The nutrition team at Archway House use a functional medicine framework to find the underlying causes of ill health. We assess the function of the digestive, hormonal, immune, neurological and cardiovascular systems and explore the external environmental factors which influence a patient’s health. Because each patient is biochemically unique, functional diagnostic testing may be recommended to pinpoint specific metabolic imbalances.
