As a Nutritional Therapist, I currently offer Nutritional Healing consultations in Honiton, and surrounding areas of East Devon.
Nutritional Healing is a drug free, holistic approach to health. It 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 nutrition plan for the individual can be achieved.
Often stress and lifestyle factors can cause us to make unhealthy choices. We are all human after all. However, these all have a knock on effect on our digestion and assimilation. We are only as good as the food we eat and assimilate correctly in the body.
We wouldn’t dream of putting the wrong fuel in our car, yet we often unknowingly do it to our bodies every day. Just as your car would breakdown later down the road, ultimately, so too will your body and ‘dis-ease’ enters the picture.
Nutritional Healing uses naturopathic principles, to establish a diet 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 and are not hung up on food. Ultimately, its not about being perfect, its about being better than we used to be. Small changes can produce big results. Wellness and over all health ensue.
Initial consultation cost £70 and lasts approximately an hour and a half. It is recommended that there is at least one follow up after the initial consultation , approximately 4-6 weeks later, to see how the nutrition plan is going and to make any necessary changes. Further follow up sessions cost £40 for up to 40mins. Discounts and instalments are available on packages of 3 or more consultations.
Consists of 1 consultation session and two follow up sessions and costs £170
Package 2 The Menopause package
This is designed to give women the information and help they need at this time. it consists of an initial nutrition consultation and guidance on food choices to help with symptoms. It is linked with 3 reflexology sessions. Reflexology helps to calm the nervous and hormonal systems and is a wonderful tool to support you at this time in your life. Some clients have reported a reduction in severity, or number of hot flushes and a general calmness. Regular reflexology sessions are necessary to support this and results are dependent upon the individual.
The cost is £160
What is Nutritional Healing?
Prior to consultation
I will ask you to complete a food diary and health questionnaire.These will need to be returned prior to the consultation. Completing these in advance will enable me to prepare before we meet, so that you get the most value for money from the consultation. I will be able to address your areas of concern.
The actual consultation
The initial conversation is approximately 1hr 15 mins, I may ask questions that may seem unrelated but together with your health questionnaire, they help me to build a complete picture. I will put together a nutrition plan and advice in an email that you will be able to read at your leisure.
I will contact you once you have received the email, so that I may answer any questions you may have. This is usually by phone and lasts 30 mins.
Each person is an individual and results can vary dependent on the issues involved. However, people I have helped have reported an increase in wellbeing when simple adjustments to diet and lifestyle are made.
Can’t I get the nutrients from my diet?
Sadly, No. The nutrient content of our food has changed dramatically over the past 50 yrs, due to intensive farming and the use of pesticides etc. When you add in the amount of processed food that we now eat, this reduces the nutrient content even further. Supplementation is a way of bridging the gap to help the body operate optimally and efficently.
Can I use any supplements?
Cheaper supplements often have cheaper ingredient formats and are more difficult for the body to use. You are, in effect, giving the body more work to do when it is already compromised. I use Cytoplan, a very ethical company that make Food State vitamins. This means the body sees them as food and they go down the right metabolic pathways. This enables the body to use them efficiently.
Supplementation is only advised where necessary.
