WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
“Nutritional Therapy is a practical approach & application of the latest research in advanced nutrition and health sciences to promote optimum health and peak performance.”
This is a typical sentence that doesn’t answer what you want to know: “How can a nutritional help me feel better?”
Nutritional therapy is a holistic approach.
I look at what you eat, how you digest and absorb the nutrients but also what is eating you ( anger, fear, stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness).
My approach is to cover all areas of wellbeing (mental, emotional, nutritional, physical and spiritual) so that I can help you find the mystery of your issues and help you reverse or prevent disease with personalised dietary and lifestyle changes.
Many factors have an impact on your mood, sleep, appetite, energy levels, weight, focus, or concentration.
As a science-based nutritionist, I will take into consideration your biochemical individuality, diet, lifestyle, environment, mental and emotional state, existing medical conditions, and genetic factors.
I will review your blood test results and explain the biochemical mechanism in your body in very simple language so that you know WHY you are feeling the way you are feeling right now.
Like a detective, I will connect all the dots and help you find the root cause of your health issues rather than targeting individual symptoms so that we can co-create a plan that suits your unique needs and lifestyle.
If you experience hormonal imbalance and you live stressful life the cumulative effect of your lifestyle decisions might lead to chronic disease such as:
- cardiovascular disease
- auto-immune conditions
- mental health disorders
That’s what you certainly don’t want. Your body is trying to warn you before you get sick.
Do you experience any of these symptoms?
- energy slumps: do you feel drowsy in the afternoon?
- cravings for sweets or stimulants: do you need a coffee or something sweet to pick you up?
- frequent headaches: do you need to take ibuprofen or aspirin?
- chronic muscle or joint pain even without excessive exercise?
- gastrointestinal dysfunction (bloating, excessive gas, farting, heartburn, reflux, constipation, diarrhoea)
- skin eruptions (acne, rosacea, herpes, rash, hives)
- poor cognition (forgetful, short-fused, brain fog, lack of focus and clarity)
- poor sleep: do you find it difficult to drift off and sleep deeply all night long?
- anxiety and depression
- belly fat and weight gain despite eating healthily?
Changing eating patterns might be challenging if you are trying on your own and you don’t know where to start.
There are so many diets and recommendations out there but which one is the best for you?
Are you eating healthily but you feel that something is not quite right despite “normal” blood test results?
Are you looking for motivation, commitment and strategy that suits your hectic days and your taste buds?
Book a FREE 15-minute discovery call to find out if I could help you solve your health mystery.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM NUTRITION CONSULTATION?
I recommend scheduling a FREE 15-minute discovery call to find out if we are the right match.
After our initial call, you will receive an email with the following documents :
1. Food & Mood Tracker (editable PDF form)
You need to track what you eat and why (genuine hunger, emotional overeating, social gathering, stress, lack of sleep, PMS) for 5-10 days so that I can better understand your lifestyle habits.
2. Comprehensive Health & Lifestyle Questionnaire (electronic version in English & German)
There are specific questions related to medical history, family history, health concerns, medication, digestion, emotional health, adrenal and thyroid function, immunity, allergies, blood test results, and any other factors that I would need to take into consideration.
A holistic approach is necessary to understand your health concerns thoroughly, assess your nutritional status, and learn about environmental, genetic, and other factors that may affect your health & wellbeing.
3. Blood tests analysis
Maybe you are:
- Tired because you have low levels of ferritin, transferrin, or serum iron?
- Tired because you have high CRP levels (a marker of silent inflammation or HbA1c (prediabetic state)?
- Have low cholesterol and can’t make enough steroid hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone)?
- Have high cholesterol with a risk of cardiovascular disease?
- Enjoying too much wine or fatty meals and as a result, your liver enzymes are elevated?
- Low in vitamin D, B12, folic acid, zinc, iodine or calcium? All these deficiencies could have an impact on your hormonal levels and body functions.
- Approaching perimenopause or menopause.
Your blood test results allow me to personalise a new dietary & lifestyle routine and prepare an action plan, including your favourite food (whenever possible) so that your new routine is enjoyable, practical and sustainable.
