The Functional Model
The Nutritional Therapist at Islington's Angel Wellbeing Clinic uses the Functional Model to assess health. This means that she take a holistic approach, looking at the interplay between different systems in the body, your diet, health and medical history and where possible test results (such as hormones, nutritional status, digestive function). The goal is to identify and address underlying causes of health problems, instead of simply focusing on symptoms.
Our Islington based Nutritional Therapist will make recommendations that will be designed with your health profile and circumstances in mind. Advice from Angel Wellbeing's Nutritional Therapist is practical and achievable, providing you with a complete programme including shopping tips, easy to make, tasty recipes and better food choices when eating out. The priority is to get your diet right, but where appropriate, nutritional supplements can also be recommended.
Finally, a healthy nutrition programme that works with your metabolism and is tailored to your goals - what ever they may be.
Working with your Healthcare Team
Nutritional Therapy can be undertaken alongside conventional treatments from your doctor or other therapies. We often send letters to GPs to keep them up to date, especially if working with clients under medical care.
