At Polegate Podiatry & Health Clinic we have a Nutrition Clinic. Appointments are available with our qualified and experienced Nutritional Therapist, Kelly Rose DipION FdSc
Good health begins with good food
The human body is made up of complex systems. The food that we eat has nutrients which are used by the body to assist in building up new and repairing old tissue, as well providing nourishment to help in the healthy production of hormones and enzymes needed for many functions in our bodies.
Food can play a large role in the nourishment of our cells promoting optimal health or conversely in the aggravation of disease processes or pathological conditions.
What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is a complementary healthcare that may aid the prevention of diseases or alleviate certain conditions.
A nutritional therapist will carry out a full investigation and will take many factors into account when assessing your health status. These include medical history, current symptoms and conditions, diet, environmental factors (such as pollution and pesticides) and lifestyle factors including stress and exercise levels.
In general, nutritional therapy is a way of encouraging the body to heal itself by providing it with the necessary nutrients that it needs to encourage healing and wellbeing.

What does a consultation involve?
Prior to a consultation a questionnaire will have been sent to you to be filled out. This helps to build a more complete picture.
A first consultation usually lasts about an hour and within that hour Kelly will work with you to develop a programme that is beneficial and achievable. Following the initial consultation it is recommended to have at least one or two follow up consultations. This allows for monitoring progress and also for making important alterations as your health changes.
