BESPOKE NUTRITIONAL THERAPY

Nutritional Therapy is an integrated healing approach which considers each case individually. Not a one size fits all approach. Diet, lifestyle, emotions, psychological and physical stresses can all contribute to your unique health story.

Nutritional Therapy consultations are required to set you up

Initial consultation provides time for clinical feedback relating to your case, as I see it presented. It also sets you up with first stage corrective supplementation, relating to your case within the context of my clinical understanding.  The second consultation provides time to re-design your food diary, according to your 45 minute food intolerance/food interfacing session. You are tested for up to 50 foods during this time.  


What this does:

The intention of clinical feedback is to present a fresh perspective for you, whilst de-mystifying your health case. 

The intention of First Stage corrective supplementation is to bring focus and healing to key biological systems. 

The intention of removing key food triggers from your diet is to take stress off your body, whilst supporting biological systems.  

1st NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION

Here we set the stage by defining your Health Goals, and discuss reasonable expectations.

Since pitching health goals correctly is synonymous with good results and long-term success. We seek to align your health goals with the changes that you are capable of making, daily within your life.

The initial consultation typically takes two hours during which there is plenty of opportunity to explore current symptoms and previous efforts.

Prior to your Initial consultation you will complete a Nutrition and Lifestyle questionnaire which I go through before your session.

I am trained in levels 1-4 in Systematic kinesiology. During this initial consultation I work with Systematic kinesiology to open channels and communicate directly with your body. From this I make my recommendations to support the uniqueness of each client case.  The benefit being access to the real route cause of some seemingly perverse health conditions.

Conversely, just ‘treating the symptoms’ is often ineffective in the long run.

I apply the principals of Functional Medicine, offering the benefit and use of my private laboratory partners. I only make recommendations for test-kits that make a marked difference to your understanding and health.

Finally, get set up with the first stage of your Corrective Supplementation Regime, relating to your case within the context of my clinical understanding.

2nd NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION

ANALYSE & RE-DESIGN YOUR FOOD DIARY

HERE WE RE-DESIGN YOUR FOOD DIARY ACCORDING TO A 45 MINUTE FOOD SUBSTANCE TESTING SESSION DURING WHICH UP TO 50 FOODS CAN BE TESTED

Kinesiology is the method of choice here.

‘THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HEALTHY DIET, ONLY AN APPROPRIATE ONE’

Substance testing for of up to 50 foods provides clarity on your tolerance levels for food groups, combinations and GI trends.  These foods are best understood as LOW or HIGH tolerance, rather than ‘INTOLERANT’ or ‘ALLERGENIC’ which they may or may not be.  Since there are a myriad of reasons why someone may have LOW tolerance to a food.  Poor Bile Flow, Low Pancreatic Enzymes, Fatty Liver, Clogged Helpatic Pathways, Gut Inflammation, Abuse of Grains, a Virus or Fungus hosted in our gut, Methyl Mercury in the gut.  The list really does go on.

Be A Detective:  Finding clues within your ‘tolerant vs intolerant foods’ is powerfully suggestive and intrinsically representative of how your key biological systems are functioning. We can have low tolerance to fatty foods, or grains, or foods from the deadly nightshade family, or perhaps sugary foods.  All providing powerful clues as to what lies beneath.

Therefore it would be presumptuous to assume that an ‘apparently healthy diet’ is the correct diet for you!

3rd NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION

THE FINAL SET-UP CONSULTATION, WHEN WE MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO YOUR FIRST STAGE SUPPLEMENT REGIME, ANSWER QUESTIONS & RESOLVE CHALLENGES.

First stage supplementation is selected to address current, acute and flamboyant symptoms, laying the foundations for deeper healing further on.

After the first 6 weeks we are ready to move into the second stage supplementation. With a new diet and 6 weeks on targeted supplements it makes sense the body will have a NEW set of requirements.   We address those changes promptly 6 weeks after the initial consultation.

Targeted supplements: Systematically strengthens and clears key biological systems.

Heal the gut, cleanse the liver, increase bile flow, strengthen adrenal glands.

I do not micro-manage singular nutrients, nor promote topical application of probiotics without having sound reasoning for this. 

The question should be asked, ‘Why does a gut require a probiotic?’, and to then pursue a change of ecosystem of the gut, being the environment at source.

The difference between taking a supplement once a day verses multiple times within the day: Correct dose as well as correct timings of the doses taken are paramount for the efficacious nature of any supplement. The benefit comes from creating key changes; improved function of targeted organs and systems.

Once a shift in the functionality of an organ or system has been experienced, we choose to target another organ or system.

WELCOME PACK + DETOX MANUAL
The Nutritional Therapy consultation pack provides information on how the three initial consultations are structured, GDPR, policies, payment options, supplementation Q&A.  Please print this-off and read through and sign the policy & Disclaimer pages prior to your initial consultation session.

The Detoxification Manual has been designed to accompany your health programme, when appropriated by your symptom profile.  Symptoms can be greatly relieved by detoxification techniques.  This manual is a guide to the various detoxification techniques embraced by traditional Naturopathy otherwise known as Old Fashioned Nursing Techniques. The aim of using naturopathic techniques is to bring energy and healing to specific areas of the body, reducing discomfort during detoxification. 
KINESIOLOGY
I have trained in Systematic Kinesiology levels 1-4 allowing me to use this skill within my nutritional practice.  Systematic kinesiology uses all four leavers of the body (2 x arms / 2 x legs).  When moving the leaver in various directions it locks into a specific organ or biological system which correlates to that leaver.  Systematic kinesiology is a an accepted science, and can therefore be is used to asses the health of the body.  It can also be used to provide accurate supplement recommendations and food tolerance testing.
Using Kinesiology to provide supplement guidelines: We first find the weak organ, by finding the weak correlating muscle.  We then lay the supplement on the body and re-test the correlating muscle. Typically a weak muscle will strengthen when the correct supplement is placed upon the body when a muscle is weak / correlating to a weakened organ.  Equally a strong muscle will weaken when the incorrect supplement is placed upon the body.  This information provides a gateway and dialogue between the practitioner and the ‘body’ of the client, which has advantages over clinical testing and questionnaires alone. 
Using Kinesiology for food and substance testing: All substances can to be tested; food, liquids, toxicity triggers such as cat fur, mold, heavy metals, homeopathic nosodes of every variety. 
DIETARY ADVICE
Nutrition is fundamental to health. Yet foods are not simply ‘healthy’ or ‘unhealthy’ but rather they contain nutrients which alone or as part of a whole dietary pattern alter a host of physiological functions including metabolism, gut activity and gene expression. In many cases progress with health problems will be impossible or seriously limited unless appropriate dietary changes are undertaken.

I provide individual dietary advice based on each client’s symptom’s, medical history, food tolerance testing with kinesiology, lab results and even genetic testing to ensure that the rational behind my recommendations are fully understood. Nutritional supplements fit into this approach perfectly.
Generally speaking, the foundation of everyone’s diet should be fresh, unprocessed foods. Rediscovering traditional meals based around meat, fish, eggs, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and full-fat dairy products. 
SUPPLEMENTATION
I have worked with some extra-ordinary complex health cases, and it is now my firm belief that it would be idealistic to consider that we can obtain all the nutrients required for robust health without supplementation.

For one moment consider toxicity in the environment

Living in a toxic environment, where 250 chemicals adverse to human health can be measured with the umbilical chord even prior to birth. The reality is that this is a world of toxic extremes, dealing with chemicals from inside the home and our food supplies 24/7. Our bodies are not designed for this measure, and can only cope for so long before it breaks down at the weakest genetic link.  

Q: Are all supplements the same?
A: NO! I only ever use supplements that I know are worthy of your investment. Your body will know that you are getting the real-deal, usually within a matter of weeks and sometime only days. Remember you get what you pay for with supplements. I believe that you owe it to yourself to have the best.
I therefore recommend supplements in every case to support optimal health. Guided by kinsiology throughout the supplement selection process.
Q: Are all brands the same?
A: NO! In some cases only one or two brands of the SAME nutrient or glandular will test up as a positive for the client. With cheaper brands filled with toxic binders and fillers (or simply poor quality) switching healthy muscles of the body off.  
I value the good working relationship I have with my suppliers and can draw on their expertise when needed.
PARTNER LABS

Private laboratory testing, Diagnostic tests from some of the top labs in the world

When more information is desirable I have access to a wide range of diagnostic tests through partner labs. Depending on the nature of the investigation this may be a saliva, urine or stool sample which can all be completed in the privacy of your home.  Blood samples do need to be booked-in with an taken by a local phlebotomist. 

Tests frequently ordered include:

Organic acid testing – a very useful diagnostic aid in identifying metabolic and microbial markers, vitamin status and oxalate levels.
Heavy metals – body burdens of toxic metals enabling stategies for detoxification.
Coeliac markers – a full panel of gluten reactivity markers (unlike the limited test offered by the NHS)
DNA profiling – for the ultimate in personalised medicine
Plus many others including – nutrient status, thyroid function, stool testing, allergy and autoimmune testing, homocysteine testing, etc.
I am also a big fan of genetic testing… 

DNA panels 

Encoded from birth is our DNA which is subsequently influenced by our environments, our nutritional choices and lifestyle.  As well as our relationships, our sense of community and emotional responses.  The influence of these external factors upon our DNA is known as Epigenetics. 
> DNA Genetic Panels provide clues as to why we may be predisposed to developing certain health conditions.  
> Functional Medicine Panels then help us to understand the present outcome of our genetic predispositions.  Test results can also help us to track progress.  I am a big fan of both!
Please note, laboratory tests often require additional consultation time to go through the results and rationales for nutritional support especially where complex interpretation is required.   
Integrating Genetic Panels within nutritional consultation is the perfect compliment and therefore strongly recommended.
