Food is full of the nutrients we need for optimal health but eating for health has become complicated. Time pressures and the fast food lifestyle often means we don’t get the nutrients we need and in the right quantities and health begins to suffer. Confusing marketing and journalistic messages mean it’s hard to strike the right balance.
Working together with the client I can help you find the right balance.
In a nutritional consultation I will take a full medical , family and lifestyle history , assess the patient’s lifestyle and diet. Sometimes I might feel it would be helpful to order functional laboratory tests in order to find out if there are any nutritional deficiencies.
These tests might include assessments of digestive function, hormone levels, thyroid function, organic acid analysis, blood chemistries etc. After interpretation of the history and tests I will put together a dietary and lifestyle plan, tailored to the individual. This will include a diet plan, lifestyle adjustments and sometimes supplements where appropriate.
