limitations of nutritional therapy
Nutritional Therapy advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice and/or treatment and clients are responsible for contacting their GP about any health concerns.
Nutritional advice will be tailored to support medically established, diagnosed conditions and/or health concerns identified and agreed between the Nutritional Therapist and client. Nutritional Therapists are not permitted to diagnose, or claim to treat, medical conditions.
You should understand that responses to Nutritional Therapy may vary between clients with similar health problems and following a similar Nutritional Therapy programme.
informing your healthcare team
If you are receiving treatment from your GP, other medical provider or complementary therapist, you should advise them of any nutritional strategy provided by the nutritional therapist. This is necessary in case of any possible reaction between medication and the nutritional programme.
questions arising after a consultation
You should contact the nutritional therapist if unclear about any areas of the agreed nutritional programme including supplementation and timeframes and if you wish to continue a dietary supplement or programme longer than the specified period.
You are advised to report any concern about nutritional therapy promptly to the nutritional therapist for discussion and action.
You must inform the nutritional therapist of any medical diagnosis, medication, herbal medicine or food supplements they are taking as this may affect the nutritional programme.
