Nutritional Therapy and Cranio-Sacral Therapy combined

It has long been known that a nutritionally balanced diet improves a person’s mental and physical health and provides a general sense of well-being. However, an imbalanced diet or one that contains foods to which an individual is allergic or intolerant to may lead to adverse health conditions such as digestive disorders, low energy or mood swings.

 

Each person is different…

While there are general guidelines to a good, balanced diet and people should consume a wide variety of foods, a person’s unique biochemical make up may mean that he or she should eat certain foods and avoid others.

Nutritional Therapy (NT) looks at the individual’s diet and lifestyle in order to identify and correct biochemical imbalances that may lead to body dysfunction. NT works to locate the root of the problem and help the body heal itself.

A NT consultation enables the practitioner to make an in-depth analysis of an individual’s diet and discover the aspects that could be causing health problems.

Studies and research have shown that minerals, diet and vitamins can have a positive effect on certain conditions such as:

 

Migraines and headaches (see reference tab)

Sinus problems

Food intolerances

Skin problems

Female hormonal and menstrual imbalances (see reference tab)

Arthritis (improving life quality)

Weight problems

Lack of energy

Bloating, constipation, diarrhoea

Frequent colds and infections

Premenstrual syndrome

Candida

Irritable Bowel syndrome

Preconception care – Pregnancy and post-natal nutrition 

 

For all the conditons above a medical check up should have been done for the diagnoses of each condition.

The Nutritional therapist looks at the optimum nutrition which encompasses individual prescriptions for diet and lifestyle in order to alleviate or prevent ailments and to promote optimal gene expression through all life stages. Recommendations may include guidance on natural detoxification, procedures to promote colon health, methods to support digestion and absorption, the avoidance of toxins or allergens and the appropriate use of supplementary nutrients, including phytonutrients. Nutritional therapists advise on each person’s unique dietary and nutritional needs for metabolic and hormonal homeostasis, using a variety of biochemical and functional tests to inform recommended protocols and programmes.

Amelia shares how her hayfever improved with treatment

May 2015

Cat Allergy

Amelia is not free of the cat allergy and sneezing when she goes near the specific cats that we treated! and she cannot believe it herself!

“I started getting hay fever the summer after my daughter was born, 8 ½ yeas ago. Prior to that I had just been allergic to cats since I was a teenager but had managed just to avoid them.

My hay fever started quite early in the season and would go on through the summer and on certain bad days I would get so itchy and sneezy and irritated that I would have to go and lie down. It was frustrating that at the nicest time of year, being outside in the garden/park etc. made me feel ill. I tried using conventional hay fever drugs – clarityn and flixonase which helped a bit but I was still getting symptoms and didn’t like taking these drugs all the time.

So when Maria told me that she could treat hay fever in the long term, I was very interested. I didn’t know anything about the NEAT system. Maria explained that she would test and treat, not only my allergies to pollen but also intolerances to all different kinds of food and environmental factors. She explained that intolerances to other things, even if we are not aware of them can increase the body’s allergic reaction to pollen.  [read more…]
