What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy tackles health issues from a diet and lifestyle perspective. Illness can occur for many reasons but poor diet, stress, anxiety, and sleep problems can all contribute to impaired digestion leading into a cycle of even poorer nutrition.
There are also dietitians but they are trained differently from nutritional therapists so would give different advice.
Optimal nutrition has anti-ageing effects....
We all need to eat and the good news is that we can enjoy our food without having to miss out ! Sometimes, it's just about learning what benefits different food choices can have not only on our bodies but also our mental well being as well. Food can affect our mood so we really are in a great position to find the best and delicious solutions to help us to feel better. Sometimes just a few simple changes can make all the difference but who ever you are, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Often we want to change but don't know how. We can have subconscious habits and because we aren't consciously aware of them, we cannot change them. We may have a 'trigger' which comes before a habit or behaviour. For instance, if we automatically go to the kitchen cupboard as soon as we get in from work when we aren't hungry, then the trigger is coming through the front door at that time. So,therefore we can change that trigger to doing something different when coming home, like taking the dog for a walk. It is these behaviours that we can also address in nutrition and use our minds to change the outcome of how, when and why we might eat.
The great thing about food is there is lots of it and lots of different types. You may have to stop eating a certain food if it causing you problems but if it makes you feel better then it's unlikely you will miss it. It may only be for a short time, to give your body a chance to heal.
I believe that each person is unique. I recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
I have a background in science so can marry both holistic and scientific protocols to give you the best of both worlds. Training for 3 years for a Diploma in Nutrition, I have over 200 hours of clinic experience. As a Reiki therapist I can recommend Reiki for those who prefer a more gentle and relaxing approach.
Nutritional therapy cannot be a replacement for medical diagnosis and I work alongside other healthcare professionals . If you already have a diagnosed condition,I recommend that you let your Doctor know you are seeing a nutritional therapist.
