What is Nutritional medicine?
Optimum nutrition provides the raw materials for health maintenance and repair, allowing us to feel and perform at our best. I’ve seen profound improvements in my clients' well-being (see Testimonials), because what we eat can undoubtedly have an immense impact on everything from the health of our brains, our mood and hormone balance through to our vitality, digestive health, weight and immunity.
Over the last fifty or so years, our diets have changed radically, as has the nutritional content of our food. And it has also become harder to maintain healthy habits when processed and highly palatable sugary and refined foods are so ubiquitous. Furthermore, our modern lives are becoming busier and more stressful. During this period, there’s been a sharp rise in all sorts of chronic and stress-related health conditions, as well as obesity and its related illnesses such as type II diabetes. It is in part driven by chronic (often silent) inflammation due to dietary imbalances, our increased stress load, plus our sedentary lifestyles, poor sleep, gut health, toxic burden and so on.
Confused by what you should be eating?
Consider too, that nutritional science is forever evolving, making it hard for the non-specialist to keep up. There are just so many conflicting reports in the media about the right approach to follow, whether it be low fat, low carb, a ketogenic diet, vegan, intermittent fasting or the latest faddy weight-loss and celebrity-backed trends.
Remember - there is no one size fits all rule in nutritional therapy, as the aim is to ascertain the underlying causes of your symptoms, not suppress them. It follows the Functional Medicine model.
Therefore, working with an experienced professional can pay dividends, as I can make sense of the dietary dogma and personalise a plan to suit you, your unique biology and lifestyle based on my clinical experience and evidence-based nutritional science.
