Diagnostic nutrition is the link between clinical nutrition and functional medicine testing. Using the latest methods in diagnosis and analysis, Diagnostic nutrition endeavors to discover and address the underlying causes and issues that lead to common and complex health conditions. Diagnostic nutrition determines a precise picture of your total health through a series of nutritional and lifestyle assessments as well as accurate medical testing in order to identify and correct imbalances that may be present.
The diagnostic nutrition process continuously monitors and supports you along the path to optimum health through a natural healing protocol designed to activate and enhance the innate healing ability of the body. Diagnostic nutrition works to prevent future disease by mitigating environmental, lifestyle, antigenic, inflammatory and pathogenic stressors. Each person is utterly unique and Bewellbeing believe that diagnostic nutrition is the ideal way to tailor treatment to meet individual needs.
In the majority of cases, the diagnostic nutrition and supplemental protocols from Bewellbeing can be used in conjunction with any current medical treatment and are often complementary tools that aid in the healing process.
A healthy diet is a vitally important component of health and longevity. What you eat directly affects how you look, feel and perform physically, mentally and emotionally.

The basis of Nutritional Therapy
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programs rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy program that has been provided.
What a nutritional therapy session typically involves
Before the first consultation, the practitioner usually provides a health and nutrition questionnaire for the client to complete. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 to 90 minutes, and in this time the practitioner asks detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet. The practitioner then evaluates individual needs and uses the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop a personalised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle program.
Follow up consultations are generally after four weeks in order to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.
