I am a qualified Nutritionist who is passionate about the power that each individual possesses to influence the health of the environment of their own body and of the wider external environment. I’d love to support you in supporting your own health through nutrition. I want you to feel empowered to make nutritional decisions that will improve your health and increase feelings of harmony and fulfilment in your life. My approach to nutrition is based on traditional food wisdom and understandings gained through modern scientific research and is tailored to the individual’s needs.
How does it feel to be you?
Do you experience a few minor symptoms and feel like you could be more healthy? Or do you feel like aspects of your life are being negatively impacted by your health symptoms? Is your self confidence affected? Your mood? How you relate to others? Your energy for exercise? Your ability to work or to express your unique gifts and talents? Do you feel stuck in patterns which are detrimental to your wellbeing? How might it feel to feel more healthy, and what might change in your life?
Our food choices can have a profound effect on our life experience. Our physical, mental and emotional qualities and capacities are affected by our amazing cells. Nutrients influence the health of our cells and their processes and products, and this enables our life and affects the way we feel. The organisms which inhabit our gut and our body also affect how we feel and are influenced by the foods we eat. We can positively or negatively influence our cells and organisms through what we eat. The external natural environment with which our cells and organisms are intimately linked is also greatly impacted by our food choices. This makes nutrition a fundamental aspect underpinning the health of our body, mind, and planet. When we are in a state of health, wellbeing and wholeness we have more capacity to express our talents, share our love, and have more fun!
What i can help you with
An individualised nutritional programme can support:
proper function and health of the gut, digestion and absorption, skin, allergies, intolerances, inflammation, infections, immune system, autoimmunity, muscular, skeletal, cardiovascular, hormonal, reproductive, pregnancy, menstrual, deficiencies, anaemia, detoxification, sleep, energy, fatigue, mood, mental clarity, cognition, neurological, metabolism, blood sugar regulation, fussy and disordered eating, achieving optimal weight balance, chronic diseases and disorders, and more!
During our lifetime, from developing in the womb through to old age, our nutritional requirements change. Even if we feel healthy there are certain nutrients and foods that can be incorporated to ensure our vitality in every stage of life.
I can also assist with the implementation of therapeutic diets such as gut healing, anti-candida and low histamine, and functional tests such as stool tests and hormone tests.
Nutritional adjustments are individual, based on your body’s needs as indicated by your symptoms and your health goals. We’ll work together to find solutions which fit your individual lifestyle and means, and simple ways to integrate the adjustments into your life. The nutritional adjustments may be in the form of a big overhaul, or tiny step-by-step changes, depending on the path you feel will be most sustainable for you.
