“…to live in harmony and balance in nature you have to find the harmony and balance within your own nature”
Gut healing practices can profoundly change your life…
Research shows that looking after your gut is one of the most important things you can do for your health and wellbeing.
The gut is often one of the leading causes of inflammation in the body leading to issues such as fatigue, depression, anxiety, brain fog, insomnia, acne, hormone imbalances etc.
As nutritional therapists gut health is the first area that we look to improve and, whilst it is most commonly associated with IBS, bloating, digestive issues etc., it also impacts every other system in the body (nervous system, immune system, hormonal health etc.) and is therefore nearly always the best place to start for any health concern and for building resilience.
To have a healthy happy gut working efficiently is not just about what we eat, but also how we eat….and how we move, think and breathe!
Areas of Focus
What are you eating?
Identifying trigger foods as well as any imbalances or deficiencies. It is just important to look at what you are not eating as what you are eating.
How are you eating?
Looking at how you are digesting your food and absorbing vital nutrients. This will all be affected by the health of the gut and many lifestyle factors.
How is your sleep?
Sleep is an important part of the picture. However for some people this in itself can be a cause of stress and it’s important to recognise that we are all different and all have different requirements for sleep.
How do you move your body?
There are enormous benefits to moving your body in some way every day, preferably doing something that you enjoy.
How are you breathing?
The most fundamental need for life, affecting every single system in the body, playing a huge role in health and wellbeing. The breath is like a remote control for the brain and nervous system.
How do you take care of yourself?
Most people do not allow themselves time to simply “be”…whether that be resting, day dreaming or doing something they really love to do, purely for that reason.

Personalised Nutritional Therapy
Many of us lack the basic raw materials from our food and drink to function at our best. Intensive farming, pollution, stress, lifestyle, stimulants and an over-reliance on processed foods are just some of the reasons for us being deficient in vital nutrients.
It is important to understand the basics of healthy eating but also to recognise that foods which can be good for one person may not be good for another. Many of us eat a supposedly ‘healthy’ diet but still suffer with symptoms such as poor digestion, energy slumps, headaches, cravings and reliance on stimulants.
Factors such as impaired digestion, nervous system imbalances (from chronic stress, sleep issues etc.) and toxin exposure (from bacteria, parasites, chemicals etc.) can all impact how we utilise nutrients.
I may recommend laboratory investigations to enable a more targeted approach to your programme. They can also be useful to monitor your progress.
A range of UK medical laboratories are used, including Biolab, Invivo Clinical and Genova Diagnostics.
I will be able to interpret your test results and provide clear, realistic nutrition and lifestyle recommendations.
Please note: the cost of these tests are additional to the consultation costs
