The British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy, established in 1997, is the professional association for nutritional therapists. Nutritional Therapy practitioners work one-to-one with the public in an approach that is centred on their specific health and/or dietary needs. This represents a nutritional paradigm different from that which underpins current dietetic and public health nutrition. The approach is patient centred, considers biochemical individuality, the dynamic balance between internal and external influences, assumes health to be a positive state not merely the absence of disease and promotes the maintenance of genomic stability and mitochondrial capacity in order to decrease morbidity and increase a healthy lifespan. BANT practitioners provide personalised nutrition plans to support a return to better health. BANT membership is the seal of excellence for nutrition health practitioners. Join us!
