Clinical Nutrition is the study of the relationship between the food consumed and wellbeing.
A Clinical Nutritionist assists individuals with their health concerns by tailoring nutrition and lifestyle recommendations to their needs. Therapeutic grade dietary supplements may also be recommended.
Before and during the consultation a Clinical Nutritionist will take a detailed case history, asking questions regarding medical history, family history, and dietary, lifestyle and exercise habits. As much information as possible is gathered in order to construct a holistic view of the client’s state of health.
