What is Nutritional Therapy?
Discover the Power of Personalised Nutrition with AG Nutrition

How Does Nutritional Therapy Personalise My Diet and Lifestyle?
To identify your unique nutritional needs and develop tailored solutions to optimise your health, both now and in the long term, a range of factors will be considered, including:
• Nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics: How your unique genetics might affect your health and responses to food, nutrients, lifestyle, and other therapies.
• System-focused interactions: Assessing how different systems might influence your overall health and response to lifestyle changes.
• Microbiome health and diversity: Evaluating the impact of microorganisms (good and bad) in your gut, mouth or vagina on health and their response to food and dietary supplements.
• Nutrient intake, status and metabolism: Determining your needs and factors that might alter your body's ability to process substances.
• Dietary habits: Learning about routines, aversions, and emotional, sociocultural, ethical and professional influences on your choices and preferences.
• Environmental stressors: Understanding how allergens, pollution, moulds and sensitivities may compromise your well-being.
• Lifestyle habits: Considering how sleep, exercise, alcohol and stress patterns and coping mechanisms contribute to your overall health and well-being.
And that is just the beginning.
Empowering You to Take Control of Your Health
Your nutritional therapy plan can cater to any ongoing health conditions you may have - but it's also perfect for people wishing to adopt a proactive, preventative, and personalised approach to self-care.
AG Nutrition provides more than just a diet planning service: you gain the knowledge, resources and support you need to take control of your well-being and improve your quality of life. The nutritional therapy packages make it easier to stay motivated, inspired and make informed choices that enhance your health, whatever your goals or circumstances.
How Does Nutritional Therapy Support My Health and Fitness Goals?
Food is fuel and much more—it impacts every cell, organ, and system in your body. That's why nutritional therapy goes beyond the surface, applying rigorous research to understand the effects of food and supplements on your health.
Your diet and lifestyle can affect your energy, weight, mood, physical performance, and cognition. Recognised increasingly in medicine, lifestyle changes can influence the physical and mental wellbeing of people with chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, as well as people with digestive and stress-related issues.
Nutritional therapy does not aim to treat symptoms or diseases. It's mission is to promote long-term wellbeing, starting with individuals, like you. This begins with encouraging realistic, safe and sustainable health and fitness goals, and customising food and lifestyle habits so you can nurture your unique health potential.
What Health Issues Do Clients Refer With?
Nutritional therapy is designed to work alongside medical care, not to replace it. If you have a diagnosed health condition, Adam can work with you and your doctor to make sure the diet and lifestyle changes are suitable. Adam will also refer you to your GP when you have health concerns that you have not previously discussed with your GP.

How Quickly Will You See Results?
The impact timeline of nutritional therapy hinges on various factors—your current health status, baseline dietary habits, the precision of your provided information, and your commitment to the plan.
You could see benefits within weeks, depending on your readiness to adopt changes, the complexity of your health concerns, and your goals. However, remember: nutritional therapy doesn't promise a quick-fix. Instead, it focuses on sustained, long-term lifestyle transformation and overall health promotion.
If you're juggling multiple health issues or goals, you might need ongoing support over several months. Factors like lab tests, supplementation, your food relationship, and engagement consistency can influence the amount of support you require.
Adam will explore your personal circumstances in your free 15-minute discovery call, but your unique situation may necessitate a more precise estimate post-assessment. Embrace the journey towards health, one step at a time.
What Are The Risks or Side Effects of Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy is generally safe, especially under the guidance of a qualified, BANT-registered practitioner like Adam Greer. However, accurate communication is key. If you're managing a chronic condition or taking medication, inform your therapist to avoid any potential interactions.
Always keep your practitioner abreast of any health changes or new diagnoses to ensure you receive the most appropriate advice. Remember, some dietary or supplement recommendations are short-term, necessitating regular consultations to support your health journey with the right guidance at every step.
