Why see a nutritionist?
Many, and I'd argue most, health issues can be helped, and even resolved, through nutrition and nutritional supplements.
Any of these things can be improved with nutrition. Nutrition is the core of our health. Get it right and so many other things fall into place.
Sometimes these are necessary but generally not forever. The idea is to use them in times of need or utter depletion until we have resolved the issue that led to the depletion in the first place.
There are reasons you are depleted in something or need something to support a particular system at a particular time. Once we get to the bottom of it and improve your general nutrition you can stop these or go back to an 'as needed' basis.
We can work this out together. Remember health is a journey with forks in the road, pot holes and destinations along the way.
Sometimes, but not always, tests need to be done to check levels of different nutrients, hormones, heavy metals etc.
Often the symptoms are the best information I can get. I ask a lot of questions- I mean a lot! Especially in the first consult. I don't muck about! Let's get you feeling better with a minimum of fuss.
'Diet' is a dirty word
Yep. I think so and aim to talk about 'nutrition' not 'diet'. Technically your diet is just what you eat on a daily basis but the word has been completely bastardised to mean a restricted way of eating.
Sure we all have our restrictions eg wheat makes me feel bloated so I restrict it, diabetics need to watch their sugar intake, people with allergies can't eat what they're allergic too but these are sensible restrictions that make us feel better not miserable!
So let's talk about nutrition and getting the best out of what goes in our mouths!
