Clinical Nutrition

What is Clinical Nutrition?

Clinical Nutrition is the thorough examination of your diet with the help of a qualified specialist that can identify a number of different problems caused by what you eat.
Essentially, food is fuel and what you chose to fuel your body with affects how your body performs. If what you put in isn’t giving you the energy you need, or having the wrong effect on your body, maybe what you eat and drink needs changing. With the help of a Clinical Nutritionist, they can help you identify what’s working, what isn’t and what to change to make you feel your best.
