Natural Healthcare founded on Scientific Research

Natural healthcare is the generic term for non-medical methods and protocols in healthcare. Natural healthcare does not use pharmaceutical or surgical interventions (most definitely the world of the medical profession). However, there is often a misconception that all natural healthcares have their roots in ancient or non-scientific unproven methods.

Nutritional Immunology is different; we provide natural healthcare based on current scientific research. Published peer reviewed research articles underpin our therapies

Nutritional Immunology is concerned with the interaction of nutritional and environmental factors with your unique human biochemistry, genetics and physiology - recognising the key role of the immune system in health and disease. Using the latest research, we can draw on the most recent biomedical and genetic science and research to develop new interventions to manage illness and disease, and to promote optimal health and well-being.

As modern healthcare practitioners, we know it is vitally important to continue to read new research; Science is continually illuminating more information on the workings of the human systems and the effect of disease - there are very many instances when scientific evidence changes in the light of new knowledge and understanding.

Evidence Based Practice

At Nutritional Immunology, we base our method of practice on Dr. David Sackett’s definition of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP). He defined EBP as “the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research.” 1

EBP is the integration of clinical expertise, patient values, and the best research evidence into the decision making process for patient care.

The key term is this scientific definition is the recognition that each client brings to the encounter his or her own personal preferences and unique concerns, expectations, and values into the decision making process for their personal intervention. This principle is reflected perfectly through the biochemical individuality and personalised healthcare model
