Functional Nutrition in Narrabeen

Nutritional medicine follows a holistic approach to healing which takes into account the whole person—mind, body and spirit. Nutritionists address the underlying cause of health issues, not just the symptoms, and they acknowledge that what a person is experiencing is typically caused by a combination of factors.

“My work is not prescription, but rather description. We need education far more than we need medication.” – Andrew W. Saul

Nutritionist vs Dietitian

Both nutritionists and dietitians have the same view—they want to help people achieve better health and wellbeing through food. Both practice evidence-based medicine, but they each follow different philosophies to achieve this.

Nutritional medicine uses a broader, whole-body approach to address the underlying cause of various conditions, while dieticians are mainly trained to give evidence-based dietary advice. Nutritionists mostly work in a private practice with other practitioners that share a similar outlook. Dieticians generally work with population health, hospitals and nursing homes.

We live in a time of rising preventable diseases, and there is a role for both nutritionists and dietitians to provide people a choice when choosing the right practitioner to help them reach their health goals.
