Frequently Asked Questions
How does Nutritional Therapy Work?
The factors that always accompany chronic illness are toxin accumulation, inadequacy of key nutrients, and loss of cell vitality. None of these can be put right by taking either prescribed or over-the-counter drugs and remedies. These may suppress the symptoms experienced, but do not put right the basic cause. They also add to the level of toxins already in the body, and give the system more work in breaking them down and getting rid of them.
Nutritional therapy, by taking careful account of the patient's history of illness and the treatments already undergone, aims to remove toxins, nourish the cells of the body, and increase cellular energy so that the body can function much more as it should.
Is the diet difficult to follow?
It is perhaps surprisingly simple, though a number of common foods are usually left out, and emphasis is placed on others.
How long does the treatment take?
On average it takes about three to four months to effect quite major changes in the person's health, though this can take longer depending on the initial conditions of ill-health. It is very seldom that no improvement is noticed. However, improvements are usually reported by the end of the first month.
What is the success rate of the therapy?
The degree of success can depend on a number of factors but in general most people are very pleased with the results. In some cases the difference can be quite transformative.
How much does it cost?
Please ring for details of consultation fees. Cost of supplements is usually £10 to £25 a week during the course of the therapy depending on what is required. Only the best professional supplements are used so as not to compromise the treatment. The average treatment probably costs far less than the average holiday, but its effects can last the rest of your life.
