What are the ten best foods to support your wellbeing?

 

Paula Fenegan Nutrition Support for Menopause

I currently offer Nutrition Support for Peri-menopause and Menopause, in Honiton East Devon.

As an Nutritionist, I know the effects good nutrition can have on your symptoms. Whether that is bloating, weight gain, brain fog or the constant tiredness. How we support our bodies during the Menopause, is so important to reduce the impact of the symptoms. We really need to value our self care in order to support healthy ageing.

I use an approach that looks at you holistically, so that I can see what is your current state of health and what adjustments maybe necessary. I take a non-judgmental look at your diet, lifestyle and environmental factors, which all play a significant part in our physical and emotional well being.

All health starts in the gut and it is particularly important at Menopause. If you are on HRT, then you need an optimally functioning gut, in order to absorb it properly.

I promote a 21-day Nutrition Kickstart that works on your gut health. If your gut isn’t healthy and is out of balance, so will the other systems of the body. They are all interlinked.The bloating, digestion problems, sleep issues, and even depression symptoms that can appear at Menopause, due to the change in hormones, can appear  worse.

However, it doesn’t have to be like this. The 21Day Programme is a proven system that has helped many people deal with all sorts of issues from IBS to insomnia.

If you would like to find out more about a nutrition based approach, contact me on the link below for a free 15min consultation to see how I can support you.

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 healthy 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 our 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. In fact, 95 % of your serotonin( the happy hormone) which influences your mood and GI activity, is created in the gut by bacteria.

They also create chemicals that help both with physical and mental processes such as learning, memory and mood.  Clever little critters eh!

HOW YOUR GUT AFFECTS YOUR HEALTH

“A happy gut, a happy mind and body. It’s as easy as putting the right foods in your mouth.”

Want to Create Lasting Change?

Why not upgraded to the Rest, Refresh, Renew Programme?

Your gut is fundamental to good healthy and energy. Once your gut is functioning properly, you are able to absorb nutrients, then your brain is functioning optimally.

The next step is using reflexology to reduce the stress response and get you felling more relaxed and with a greater sense of wellbeing.

Then we can using coaching to see what areas of your life are still out of balance. Once we know which areas need change, I can support you to create small manageable goals to get you to where you want to be.

You will understand your core values, and beliefs and how they drive all your decisions in life. Once you know your triggers you can make positive steps to change them.

Small changes can produce big results and change our overall vitality. Ultimately, it’s not about being perfect, it’s about being better than we used to be. The possibilities all reside within you.
