Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine is the study of food, its nutrients and how diet affects health and wellbeing. The Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine practitioner views food, diet and nutritional supplements from the perspective of their therapeutic potential, providing dietary advice to clients and prescribing nutritional supplements to assist in the treatment of a broad range of health conditions. Nutritional consultants may then create a plan that includes individualised recommendations for dietary changes intended to support health, as well as a regimen of nutritional supplements to correct clinical or functional deficiencies. They work with the patient to support them in adopting the changes and achieving desired outcomes. Nutritional Consultants can work with people at any stage of life and with a variety of illnesses as well as with athletes seeking to improve their performance.
