Nutritional Coaching in East Devon
I currently offer Nutrition Coaching in East Devon. I use a naturopathic approach,which is looks at the whole person to establish their current state of ‘dis-ease’. By assessment of their diet, lifestyle and environmental factors, which all play a significant part in our physical and emotional well being; then a suitable way forward can be found.
WHAT IS NUTRITION COACHING?
Nutrition coaching helps you to make the best food choices for your diet and lifestyle. It can support you to make health eating choices that help balance your blood sugar and energy levels throughout the day.
We all tend to eat the same 10 meals every week and don’t realise the effect that it is having on health. When we eat a more diverse diet with lots of vegetables and fruit, we help to support our gut microbiome.
There is now a plethora of research on the benefits of good gut health and the positive effect it has on our mental wellbeing. Never before has mental health been more important and now there are positive steps that we can take with our food choices to help support it.
HOW YOUR GUT AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH
Scientists are only now realising the full effect the gut microbiome( your gut bacteria) has on the health of our whole body. This established link is called the gut-brain connection.
The gut and brain are connected by a nerve called the Vagus Nerve
Ever had that ‘butterfly feeling’ in your stomach or a ‘gut feeling’ about something. Well, that is the very real effect of your ‘second brain’. Scientists call this little brain the enteric nervous system .This system is only two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from top to bottom.
Your gut is also home to a diverse amount of gut bacteria, that work with your body to create your neurotransmitters. Infact, 95 % of your serotonin( the happy hormone) which influences your mood and GI activity, is created in the gut by the bacteria. They also create chemicals that help both with physical and mental processes such as learning, memory and mood. Clever little critters eh!
A happy gut, a happy mind and body and it’s as easy as putting the right foods in your mouth
How can Nutrition Coaching help me?
As a Nutrition coach I work with individuals to assist them in behaviour change in order to create healthy eating habits. I support them recipe ideas and lifestyle changes and empower them to take responsibility for their own health.
I work on a 1-2-1 basis with clients taking into account their individual lifestyle factors. I support them to create an optimum baseline of health that is right for them.
It might be they want better sleep, or to get rid of bloating & digestive issues, or maybe release a few excess pounds of weight.
By working with the client and keeping them accountable, I am able to help them meet their individual health goals.

How Nutritional Healing can help you.
By using my nutritional healing knowledge and wellbeing coaching, I can help to establish a lifestyle that is suitable for you. It is not a one diet fits all approach. What might suit one person, might not suit another.
I firmly believe in the 80/20 principle, whereby we eat a basic therapeutic diet 80% of the time, allowing 20% for treats or special occasions.That way we can enjoy life fully.
Small changes can produce big results and change our overall vitality. Ultimately, its not about being perfect, its about being better than we used to be.
