So what’s the difference?

We often get mixed up with the titles of some of our health experts. We have a general idea, so what does that title mean and what is the difference:Difference

Dietitian and Nutritionist: a dietitian is more specialised. They have a qualification in human nutrition and have done more theory work. They have been assessed in professional practice, clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management. A nutritionist is a person who advises on matters of food and nutrition impacts on health.

Chiropractor and Physiotherapist: Chiropractors are specialists in spinal health. They treat the body’s nervous system through spinal tweaks. Physiotherapists look from a broader perspective taking into account other body systems such as the muscles.

Naturopath and Herbalist: Naturopaths approach patients from a holistic point of view and make recommendations based on nutrition, emotion, health and physical therapy. Herbalists provide specific plant based remedies for a particular complaint.
