Registered Nutritional Therapists
Registered Nutritional Therapists consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than one size fits all approach. Registered Nutritional Therapists 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 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 programme that has been provided. Their professional body is the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine, www.bant.org.uk. Registered Nutritional Therapists are regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, www.cnhc.org.uk.
Dietitians work principally in the National Health Service and are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council. Their professional body is the British Dietetic Association. A Dietitian uses the science of nutrition to devise eating plans for patients to treat medical conditions. They also work to promote good health by helping to facilitate a positive change in food choices amongst individuals, groups and communities.
Only Dietitians and Registered Nutritional Therapists are trained in clinical practice to give one to one personal health advice. Both groups must practise with full professional indemnity insurance.
Registered Nutritionists provide evidence based information and guidance about the impact of food and nutrition on the health and wellbeing of humans (at an individual or population level) or animals. Registered Nutritionists have a good understanding of the scientific basis of nutrition and work in a range of settings, including research, education and in policy development. Their professional body is the Association for Nutrition (AfN) www.associationfornutrition.org and are regulated by the UKVRN.
What is Nutritional Therapy?

This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining optimum health.
