‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” Hippocrates AD390
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutritional science to promote optimum health and prevent disease. It aims to prevent or alleviate a number of health conditions through dietary and lifestyle modifications. The phrase ‘You are what you eat’ does have basis in truth – our bodies utilise nutrients from food for growth, development, regeneration, immunity and so much more. This is why eating a diet that is both healthy, varied and right for you is so important. Most of us aim to eat a healthy diet but with the conflicting media messages it can be quiet hard to know what is healthy and what isn’t. A nutritional therapist can work with you to provide an individual programme that will suit your tastes and lifestyle and promote optimum health.
The Broad Street Practice’s nutritional service offers an in-clinic, while-you-wait service for food intolerance testing.

When you attend a consultation, you will need to have pre-submitted a completed nutrition questionnaire, which includes a 3-day record of dietary intake for adults, 7-days for children. The questionnaire can be downloaded here.
After completing the questionnaire, please send it directly to Sophie at firstname.lastname@example.org allowing sufficient time for her to analyse the data before your appointment (at least 3 working days).
