  • Objectives
    Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition and health science to enable individuals to maximise their health potential. This course, the first nutritional therapy degree in Europe, is a response to the growing demand for high quality theoretical and practical skills training for practitioners. Nutritional therapists work in clinical practice to assess nutritional status and functional capacity. They recognise that each person’s needs are unique, depending on a number of factors, from inherited strengths and weaknesses to the influence of diet, lifestyle and environment. Nutritional therapists work with patients with chronic health problems and provide advice on disease prevention and control. Interventions include dietary modification, food supplements, phytonutrients and functional foods.
