Nutrition

100_4304An understanding of how the amazing human body works and interacts with the environment enables us to develop a deeper respect for it. Nutritional therapy can put you back in touch with your body and can help you find the approach to food and eating that best suits your unique lifestyle and constitution and also helps you to really thrive. 

 

What is naturopathic nutrition?

Naturopathic nutrition is a science based understanding of the body which also takes into account genetic, environmental and pyscho-emotional influences on the functioning of the body and the state of its health. It looks at a person as a whole and addresses not only physical but also emotional and mental wellbeing and acknowledges the interconnection between the three.

We look at the root causes of particular ailments and then take a holistic approach to supporting you to come back to a greater state of balance. This may involve lifestyle advice, nutritional recommendations and sometimes supplements.

 

What to expect?

An initial consultation lasts 90 minutes and will look in depth at your personal history and the systems of your body including how you feed yourself. A personalized plan suited to your particular constitution, history and the demands of your lifestyle is devised together. There will then be at least one follow up lasting 60 minutes.

Depending on your particular case you may find it supportive to have a series of follow ups with me.
