Naturopathic Nutrition - Initial Consultation in Bristol or on Skype/Telephone
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 and nutrients 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 or functional testing for further investigation.
Instead of trying to suppress symptoms with pills, naturopathic practitioners always ask WHY? Why is your head aching all the time? Why do you feel so tired? Why have you struggled to lose weight in recent years? Why are you depressed? Getting to the root cause of illness and correcting the underlying imbalances is the only way to achieve true healing.
I will ask you about all aspects of your medical history as well as how you feel now, and then introduce my recommendations which may include foods to try, recipes, food supplements or functional testing to get some more detailed information about your health.
The first session typically lasts 90 minutes, with subsequent appointments lasting 45-60 minutes.
Consultations are available in Bristol or via Skype/Telephone.
