Who needs Nutritional Therapy?
Everyone!! We all eat, we all drink and we are all making the best out of a bad job when it comes to modern living! Let's face it, 'stress' is the default position of most of us as we work long hours, often with a long commute and we come home shattered, only to face dogs that need walking and children that need feeding, homework to be done and shirts to iron! It's no wonder that we are seduced by the supermarket ready meals and snacks which may answer our short term problems, but only create new ones further down the line as we find that these foods which are overly processed and compromised nutritionally are wreaking havoc with our health. Endless digestive problems such as bloating, indigestion, IBS and constipation are commonplace and are seen by many as the norm. Poor immune health with people facing several coughs and colds a year and mental health challenges are just a few of the issues that have come to be accepted as part of 21st century living.
I work with all ages (family rates available) and a range of health conditions. We also offer a special rate for couples attending together for fertility support.
Examples of health challenges supported....
Auto-immune conditions e.g. underactive thyroid, MS, Rheumatoid arthritis.
Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia
Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory bowel disease
Mental health, anxiety, depression, bipolar, Autism, ADHD,
Hormonal e.g., PMS, PCOS, Endometriosis, Painful periods, fertility, menopause
Cardiovascular health, Blood Pressure, cholesterol management
Areas of specialism:
My prior professional experience has led me to a specialist interest in autoimmune disease, in particular thyroid dysfunction and Inflammatory Bowel disease. I also have a passion for mental health and my interest and research into Nutritional Psychiatry recently led to an invitation to give a lecture to the Royal College of Psychiatrists at their annual conference in York.
I also have further training in Nutrition for Cancer support with the Institute of Nutrition in London. This qualifies me to recommend both nutritional and supplemental support to those undergoing conventional cancer therapies.
I am happy working with babies and children and again my previous professional experience as a Drama and Dance teacher for children from 3 years upwards has been invaluable in preparing me for supporting and understanding the needs of my smaller clients!
I love sharing my knowledge and passion for Nutrition with others, so please do feel free to contact me to arrange speaking engagements whether for groups of mums, or for support groups, wri, or health care professionals.
What do I have to do or bring to a consultation?
The consultation process involves the client completing a lengthy functional medicine questionnaire prior to attending the clinic appointment. At the initial consultation we will go through the client's medical history and health concerns in more detail. A nutritional plan will be discussed and agreed with the client and further recommendations for testing via the GP or privately may be recommended. Clients will be emailed a nutrition plan and supplement recommendations. We normally follow up with clients about a month later.
