We read in the news that we should eat this, we shouldn't eat that, the information can be very confusing. There is actually no "one diet" that suits everyone. What may be right for one person, may be unappropriate for the next. New research is coming out all of the time to give us more insight into our health, particularly on the gut microbiome, and it can be hard to keep up with the latest information.
As we age, it can be harder for the body to balance itself, our hormones change, our nutritional requirements change, our lifestyle changes. What may have been appropriate when we were younger, may not be approiate right now for your body. I help you to understand the life changes that may be happening in your body, and how nutrition may support these changes, which may give you more of a feeling of control over your life.
After a stressful job, poor nutrition, and a few other factors, resulted in a stroke for me, I had to learn to walk, read, and talk properly again. I did this through training in nurition and Reiki, changing my career, my lifestyle and my belief system (how I think about things, my thoughts). I now feel more alive and happy in my 50s than at any other time in my life. I know how hard it can be when you are struggling with life, but how wonderful life can be when we just start to make some changes. Change nothing and nothing will change. Although some benefits can often be felt fairly quickly when changes are made, there is no one "quick fix", a diet, pill, supplement, exercise, that does this. I help you to look at all areas of your life, and how some root causes may be contributing to symptoms. Science is now showing that genetics play only a very small part in our health, but it is our lifestyle and environment that switches our genes on or off (epigenetics).
Sometimes, just making some simple and gradual changes can have a big impact. The gut and the brain are intrinsically connected, and by changing the balance of nutrients in your diet, together with lifestyle choices, you may achieve more energy and vitality.
In a non-judgemental consultation, I help you to understand where inbalances may be occurring, the latest research on health, the pathway of imbalances, and help you introduce simple and easy changes that fit in with your own unique lifestyle, likes and dislikes, to feel the best you that you can be.
Please note that I at present I do not offer consultations to those on medication or with medically diagnosed conditions such as diabetes, eczema, arthritis, high blood pressure etc. I do not aim to diagnose, treat or cure. However, I will be able to offer these services at the end of the year.
