Our Mission and Vision
Utilising the many core principles of nutrition described by early practitioners, nutrihub blends centuries-old knowledge and the philosophy that nature is the most effective healer with current research on health and human systems. Our education is supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals across many disciplines and mirrors many of the key tenets reflected in functional medicine; a science-based, patient-centered approach to managing health and complex disease.
The functional nutrition approach that underpins nutrihub education seeks to address the underlying causes of chronic disease and improve health and vitality using a systems-oriented method, addressing biochemical, physiological and energetic imbalances through nutrition and lifestyle management. These routes to resolution self-empowers individuals to improve their own health and engages client and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
This is further reflected by interweaving into our approach what is known as “P4” care, which has at its core two major objectives for every individual;
- Quantifying and improving health
- Wellness and demystifying disease
We recognise that the quantification (various methods of measurement) and generation of wellness will become increasingly important over time, ultimately becoming the focal point for most individuals. “P4” as a concept was developed by Leroy Hood, MD, PhD and is short for: Predictive, Preventive, Personalised, and Participatory….via it’s modelling, this approach emphasises improved personal measurements/ assessments and personalised treatments as the key to improving health and sustaining optimal wellbeing.
The UK Health Coaches Association (UKHCA) is the Professional Body dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of the role of Health Coaching as a credible and accessible model for preventing, and potentially reversing, chronic, lifestyle-related disease.
The primary function of BANT is to assist its members in attaining the highest standards of integrity, knowledge, competence and professional practice, in order to protect the client’s interests, nutritional therapy and the Nutritional Therapist.
