Who needs a naturopathic nutrition & lifestyle consultation? December 02 2013, 0 Comments
The short answer is anyone and everyone!
But you might be thinking why do I need one? I'm not ill and I know how to eat already, thanks very much! Well, perhaps you do and, if so, good for you. But, even if they are not clinically unwell the vast majority of people I know and/or see as clients all have some aspect of their health/wellbeing/life that could use a little support.
It might be frequent headaches or bloating and belching after meals, period pain or general irritation with life. You might feel like it's getting harder and harder to get out of bed or that bedtime can't come soon enough... and it's only 4pm. Or, that the stresses in your life that seemed small last year now seem to be getting a bit bigger and scarier. You might wish you had more energy to do exercise, want to sleep better, be fitter, happier, more productive (yes I did just steal some Radiohead lyrics there, well spotted!). Or maybe you feel great and want to make sure you continue to feel great for many more years to come. Whatever you want for yourself but are not too sure how to get it, naturopathy can help you with.
A Naturopathic nutrition consultation is an opportunity to examine all aspects of your health and wellness, past and present, and try and discover which aspects of your diet, lifestyle and/or environment might be contributing to any ill health or unhappiness and find ways of improving them for you.
Clinical nutrition and naturopathy is personalised, natural medicine. You are unique and your body's needs for food, nutrients, sleep, exercise etc are unique and the consultation process is a chance to put together a personal plan that addresses your health needs specifically.
As a naturopathic nutrition practitioner, I assess and treat the whole person rather than isolated symptoms, to learn how and why that person's health is compromised - taking into consideration their diet, lifestyle, environment and emotional wellbeing - to determine which systems are out of balance and what they need in order to regain abundant health and happiness. Recommendations may include food and supplement suggestions, sleep or exercise routines or functional testing for further investigation.
The first session typically lasts 90 minutes, with subsequent appointments lasting 45-60 minutes.
Nutritional therapy consultations are available in Central London or via Skype.
