Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is the application of evidence based nutritional and lifestyle science in the promotion of optimal health, peak performance and individual care focusing on the cause rather than the diagnosis or symptoms of disease.
Ruth Green Nutrition works closely with their clients to understand their history whilst taking into account interactions among genetics, environment and lifestyle, which can influence long term health and complex chronic disease.


The functional Model

Nutritional therapy interventions are based on promoting overall health and wellbeing for the client. The dynamic approach of the functional medicine model is to understand the balance of the body, and address the interconnecting body systems and functions to promote and improve health and wellbeing.


Functional and diagnostic testing

Individual nutritional support for those with health issues may require changes in diet and lifestyle with support over time. Functional and diagnostic tests from a broad range of laboratories may be recommended to the client when it is considered further information is of benefit to both the client and practitioner to support therapeutic interventions.

Nutritional consultations
Ruth Green Nutrition runs a successful clinic in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire providing one to one consultations for children teens and adults. (Skype consultations also available upon request)
The consultations provide personalised nutritional and lifestyle programmes, which are safe and effective to support the client in achieving their health goals.
