Nutritional Therapist may be working with a healthy individual to prevent disease,
or they may be working with a sick individual to ease and minimise symptoms of a developed disease.
Nutritional Therapists help minimise health symptoms- as opposed to focussing on the cause and treatment of the disease itself as dieticians and medical doctors do.
Nutritional Therapists play a role in:
1. identification of nutritional deficiencies
2. improvement of health symptoms
3. optimization of good health
Take into account the unique dietary needs of each person
formulate an individual plan to correct deficiencies and alleviate health symptoms
