Think about the stress and anxiety in your life and how much it takes away from other things, like enjoying your work, pursuing a hobby, and even the level of energy and passion you put into your life.
Feeling wired, tired, overwhelmed? Does the slightest change in your routine or extra responsibilities make you feel panicky? And, are you tired but can’t relax? Hormone changes during menopause can increase your ability to cope with stress.
Client education is an integral part of our practice. Here you will find a comprehensive collection of articles, hand-outs, information addressing your health concerns, and the latest research on nutrition and alternative therapies. Free fact sheets and information here >
Are you feeling below par, in discomfort and fed up with dragging yourself through the day? Perhaps you’ve tried to adopt a healthier life-style but still feel the same. I can help you turn things around.
You don’t need to make huge changes – just the right changes for you. I offer a range of services that take into account all the things that may be affecting your health. Take a look a look around my website to get an idea of how I work.
I am a nutritionist and kinesiologist and I’ve been in practice for 10 years. In that time I’ve been to numerous conferences, seminars, researched, followed health plans, specific diets, studied and continually updated my knowledge. I’ve learnt about nutrition, functional medicine, kinesiology, homeopathy, phytobiophysics, Bach flower remedies, herbs, EFT and I continue to add more skills to my toolkit.
As well as one-to-one consultations in Bath, I also hold specialist health clinics such as fertility, children’s health, weight loss and IBS among others and you can always learn more with my cookery demonstrations and talks. I am a member of the professional bodies BANT, NTC, CHNC and ASK and fully covered by insurance.
I offer Nutritional Therapy and Kinesiology which can be a magic bullet in identifying what underlying causes are stopping you from feeling well. It helps me to hone the programme to the individual. Combining the two practises enables me to:
- pinpoint with better accuracy the underlying causes of ill health
- offer practical nutritional guidance as well as hands-on kinesiology techniques e.g. acupressure to support digestion, alleviate stress etc
Example: a client came to see me whose GP told him his blood tests showed low iron status and he was prescribed Ferrous Sulphate iron tablets. This form of iron, as well as causing him constipation and stomach upset, didn’t make a marked difference to his iron levels.
At Nourish, I tested 5 different iron supplements including the one he was already taking. The only one which tested well for him was iron in the form of Bisglycinate. I recommended he took this for 3 months, made modifications to his diet and I applied kinesiology techniques to improve his digestion and absorption of nutrients.
At his second consultation, he was delighted that his energy levels were significantly better and his iron levels had increased. A few weeks later another client came to see me who, again, had low iron. On testing her, she needed needed a completely different form of iron: iron citrate and Vitamin B12.
Our bodies are unique and what suits one person may not suit another. The testing and balancing is included in the fee.
