Prema Clinic Nutrition Consultations
Prema Clinic Nutrition Consultation
Why you might choose to see a nutritionist:
- You are interested in natural therapies, wholefoods, environmental wellbeing, mind-body wellness, use of spices and herbs within your diet for therapeutic effect and supplements to nudge you back to wellness.
- You would like to be as well and healthy as you could be.
- You would like some advice and guidance on your current diet including recipes and advice on specific nutrients and foods that may help you reach your goals and are appropriate for your current life-stage and circumstances.
- You would like a holistic wellness assessment and wellness advice especially in regards to diet and lifestyle.
- You would like help to start and maintain your health goals.
Holistic wellness assessment includes: A consultation that discusses every aspect of your health; your present health concern/ health history/ sleep/ environment/ physical activity/ nutritional intake/ stress management/ mind & mood health plus a physical examination that includes taking your blood pressure, urine analysis and a random glucose prick test.
Nutritionists refer outside of their scope of practice for medical assessment and diagnosis or other practitioners as appropriate e.g. naturopaths and herbalists for herbal medicine prescriptions.
Nutritionists can support you if you have health concerns such as;
- abdominal discomfort
- food intolerance
- passing lots of gas
- lack of energy
- not sleeping well
- lacking concentration
- problems losing or maintaining a healthy weight and low mood.
Our student nutritionists are also able to help those who wish to learn more about diet for fitness and sport.
