Want to improve your health and lifestyle but unsure where to start?
Examples of areas we can work with:
Your initial consultation will last approximately 1 hour where I will take your case history; looking at your specific concern, diet, general and past health, emotional health, occupation and lifestyle. All information is confidential. The initial consultation is quite in-depth as we look for the root cause of your illness rather than focusing on your symptoms.
Your programme may include changes to your diet and eating habits, supplements, herbs, wild foods, fermented foods, lifestyle changes and movement suggestions.
Follow ups are usually between 2-4 weeks after your initial consultation.
Please note as with all holistic treatments it may take some time to see improvements depending upon your body and the changes made. I will support you through the process but encourage you to take responsibility for your own health to ensure lasting change and all round better health.
Initial consultation (around 1 hour) £40*
Follow ups (around 30 mins) £25*
* The cost of supplements/herbs and tests are not included in the above fee.
Consultations are available via Zoom or in Aberfoyle, Stirlingshire.
What is Nutritional Therapy & how can it help you?
Nutritional Therapy looks at the underlying causes and triggers of illness using functional medicine and naturopathic approaches.
After the huge genome project where scientists mapped our genes, they discovered that although our genes make us prone to certain disease manifestations the genes themselves are not the full story. They discovered that epigenetics - our environment - our diet, lifestyle, thought processes, stress, toxins, relationships all have a bigger impact on our health than genes alone. "Your genes load the gun, your environment pulls the trigger."
This can therefore give us hope, so even though you have, for example, cardiovascular disease and cancer in your family it does not mean you will necessarily get it. Every positive change that you make in your environment will help. In Nutritional therapy we know that what you put into your mouth gets absorbed by your body and literally becomes your cells. It therefore makes sense that by putting real foods into our bodies we will have healthier bodies. But Nutritional Therapy looks further at the whole picture - your diet, your cosmetics, stress, relationships - and aims to improve and optimise your health by suggesting changes that you can make to optimise your wellbeing.
