I believe that what you put into your body has a huge impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing, but that lifestyle changes are never easy without support. If you are ready to reclaim control over your own health and vitality then nutritional therapy can help you achieve your goal.
This natural therapy combines a holistic approach with the application of nutrition and health sciences into order to help individuals maximise their health potential. It recognises that all systems in the body are dependent upon each other and that it is therefore more important to build health by creating balance at all levels rather than just treating disease symptoms.
As a nutritional therapist I assess both nutritional status and functional capacity. I understand that each person’s health status is unique and that many elements may have contributed to where you now find yourself. Unlike a nutritionist I have also been trained in clinical practice to give one-to-one personal health advice as well as general information about food and healthy eating.
I believe that what you put into your body has a huge impact on your physical and emotional wellbeing and the talk will therefore focus on the key elements that support a healthy diet. For example we will look at the importance of protein and how this contributes to lowering blood sugar levels and increasing satiety – factors which are of particular importance in helping with obesity, insulin resistance and type II diabetes. We will also discuss how to easily incorporate the use of the Glycaemic Index into your diet to help using starchy carbohydrates and fibre to fight fatigue, mood swings, depression and abdominal fat.
Other vital topics include the distinction between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ fats and how this may affect inflammatory problems such as asthma, acne, eczema, arthritis, metabolic syndrome and food allergies. The impact of vitamins and minerals on the body’s enzymes and detoxification systems will also be covered, highlighting digestive dysfunctions such as candida, leaky gut, and IBS which underlie the symptoms of bloating, constipation, flatulence and dyspepsia, as well as reproductive problems including endometriosis and pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).
