Should I see a Nutritional Therapist?

You’re exercising regularly. You try to eat a balanced diet. You may even have regular health checks. But despite all of this, you’re still struggling to lose weight, you feel tired and exhausted all the time or you struggle to concentrate on tasks. This is where scheduling an appointment with a nutritionist may help. A nutritionist has a vital part to play in optimising your health and wellbeing. They aim to keep your digestive system and body running smoothly, all whilst making sure you’re getting the proper nutrients by tailoring an eating plan that works best for you – whether your goal is weight loss, learning how to eat healthier, or boosting your vitamin intake to support your health and immune system.

If you’ve been considering whether nutritional therapy is the correct route for you, here are seven reasons why you should see a nutritionist.

You need to improve your relationship with food

If you often skip meals or are looking for help building (or rebuilding) a healthy relationship with food and diet and are trying to figure out how to navigate the world of food and nutrition, looking to a professional is the right way to go.

You’re often sick

If you frequently catch viruses, this may be a sign that you’re not getting all of the nutrients that you need and speaking to a nutritionist will help you optimise your diet in the best way. The digestive system has a significant role to play in metabolising the body’s toxins as part of our natural detoxifying system. In fact, over 70% of the immune system cells are located in gut walls, which goes to show how important good gut health is when it comes to healthy bodily function.

You have diagnosed or suspected food allergies or intolerances

Food intolerances are becoming increasingly common and can lead to a whole host of symptoms, including tiredness, tummy pain, bloating, wind, diarrhoea and itching. It’s essential to work with someone who can guide you through a food allergy/intolerance/sensitivity instead of relying on Doctor Google for answers.

You want to manage your weight

If you’re struggling to lose, gain or maintain your weight, working with a professional will help you understand the best foods to focus on for your unique requirements and help you reach your goals quicker.

You are often tired or low in energy

Feeling frequently tired or low in energy throughout the day isn’t normal and could be a sign that there is something underlying going on. We recommend visiting your doctor in the first instance to rule out any health issues. Fatigue often comes down to diet, so working with a professional can help you understand where you’re going wrong with your diet and general eating habits and what to do to raise your energy levels and feel healthier overall.

You have a digestive complaint

Digestive complaints can include wind, bloating, heartburn, diarrhoea, constipation, stomach aches, etc., which can often make you feel generally sluggish and tired. Working with a Nutritional Therapist can help guide you on the best diet and lifestyle changes to eliminate these problems.

You want to improve your overall health

If you want to ensure that the food you’re eating delivers the correct nutrients and helps towards your health and goals, it could be beneficial to speak to a nutritionist to optimise your eating plan.
