Clinical Nutritional Medicine
Nutritional medicine forms the basis of complementary medical practice, looking holistically at the relationships that create health and disease – illness is complex and caused by a combination of factors, which should obviously constitute individualised care and dietary advice.
Nutritional medicine goes beyond giving dietary advice
I am also concerned about the complex biochemical and metabolic interactions of macronutrients (carbohydrates, protein, fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, coenzymes, phytonutrients), as well as your ability to digest and absorb food properly – we are not ‘what we eat,’ we are in fact ‘what we absorb’!
As a clinical nutritionist my aim is to identify the underlying cause of health issues and chronic illness, educate clients and develop a treatment and prevention plan to re-establish and maintain wellbeing. There is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to nutrition – nutritional prescriptions are tailored to the individual, taking into account both dietary and lifestyle factors such as sleep, physical activity, stress and environment.
I take a client-centred approach to treatment that is tailored to YOUR particular health goals
Whether it’s to improve your digestion, increase energy levels, lose weight or simply learn how to make better food choices I am here to guide, educate and empower you to take charge of your health, and to negotiate goals and strategies to achieve positive outcomes for your health.
