I have had a growing passion for the healing power of food since I was in my twenties. After many years of eating the same boring foods I started to crave a more varied diet full of nutritious food. I started to appreciate the benefits of eating healthy foods can have on your body and mind. I have experienced first hand their affects and wanted to pass this knowledge onto others.
Our bodies need the correct balance of nutrients to function well. Nutritional Therapy recognises that we are all biochemically unique and is about creating a bespoke programme of diet, lifestyle and where necessary nutritional supplements.
Optimising your health can and will support the body in the prevention of chronic disease, boost immunity, enhance sports performance, increase energy and blood sugar balancing, support weight management, healthy skin, hair and nails, reduce alleges and intolerances and support pre conception and pregnancy care.
I will ask a series of questions allowing me to assess your current symptoms. I will obtain a detailed health history and where appropriate laboratory tests to help me provide optimal nutrition advice. My recommendations will work to support detoxification, enhance digestive function, balance blood sugar levels, addressing food intolerance or sensitivities, build natural immune defences and resolve hormone or neurotransmitter imbalances.
As a Nutritional Therapist I will provide an individual programme that is unique to you and your needs. My recommendations will be appropriate to fit into your life, making it realistic and achievable. Suggestions will include meal ideas, recipes, shopping lists, targeted nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes.
There is significant scientific evidence to support the use of nutrition to alleviate health problems and to help in the prevention of chronic disease. Nutritional Therapy can and is frequently used along side conventional medical treatment, either to support treatment or to alleviate some of the side effects. However it is important to remember that Nutritional Therapy is not a replacement for medical advice and I will always recommend that you consult with your GP for any serious health conditions.
Optimum wellness can be achieved by anyone. We can all for strive for more energy, be free from pain and discomfort, sleep well, cope better with stress, whilst looking and feeling great. With the stresses and strains of modern life, it’s not easy to feel well all the time, and this is where nutritional therapy can help you.
The food we eat affects every cell in the body; it can make the difference between feeling ‘all right’ and feeling ‘great’.
I will email you a diet diary to detail your 5 most typical days and a questionnaire for personal information. Please print these out and bring along to your consultation.
During your consultation I may ask further questions based on your personal information looking at your health history, lifestyle habits, and goals.
I will comprise a personalised diet and lifestyle plan just for you. Suggestions will include meal ideas, recipes, shopping lists, targeted nutritional supplements and lifestyle changes.
