Nutritional Therapy is not all about giving up the foods that you enjoy most and nibbling on lettuce leaves forever more. It is about feeding your body with what it needs to function optimally, and to be healthy and stay healthy as you get older. As a nutritional therapist, my aim is to help people get on the right track in their eating habits, and, in doing so, help reduce their risk of becoming ill in the future. It is surprising how even small changes to your diet can make an enormous difference to how you feel.
Eating a wide range of healthy foods, and specifically foods that suit your own particular make-up, can help you to look and feel younger, have healthier hair and skin, have stronger resistance to colds and viruses and generally feel more vital and energised. Poor nutrition, coupled with an unhealthy lifestyle, has been implicated in many chronic health problems and research has shown that the right nutrition has an important role to play in good health. The following symptoms/conditions may benefit from a nutritional approach, complementing, where needs be, appropriate medical treatments:
nb. please visit your doctor first to get a proper diagnosis
- weight issues (difficulty losing or gaining weight)
- hormonal problems (fertility issues, menopause, PMT or Polycystic ovary syndrome)
- pre- and post-natal care
- digestive disorders (IBS, bloating, excessive gas, diarrhoea, constipation)
- tiredness & fatigue - mental well-being (stress, anxiety, depression)
- allergies & food intolerances
- skin disorders (eczema, psoriasis, acne)
- poor immunity (frequent colds or infections)
- cardiovascular health (high blood pressure, high cholesterol)
…………… and many more!
I work with all age groups, from toddlers through to teenagers and the elderly, looking carefully at diet and lifestyle factors and suggesting changes in a personal diet and lifestyle plan aimed to help you achieve your health goals.
Disclaimer: Nutritional Therapy should not take the place of medical advice. It is a complimentary discipline that can work alongside conventional medical care. I cannot diagnose disease and it is important that you consult your GP if you have any unusual or persistent symptoms. You should always consult your doctor before making any changes to prescribed medications and always tell your doctor about any supplements you are taking.
