“One Man’s Food Is Another Man’s Poison”

This ancient proverb is so true and this is why I don’t believe in “diets”. The only “diet” that is right for you is the one where you are eating and drinking in accordance with the foods that suit you as a unique being. These foods may change over time depending on a variery of factors such as your age, lifestyle, toxic exposure, stress levels, gut health and sleep patterns.

When you pay attention to your symptoms and to how they are affected by eating and drinking you will begin to instinctively know which foods nourish and support you and which foods are irritating your body and mind. To be able to tune in, first you have to simplify things by removing the processed and nutrient depleted foods and I will help you to do this.

Over the last 15 years I have gained extensive knowledge about nutrition, through my Nutritional Therapy Degree and through ongoing research and learning. I will share this knowlegde with you and, if you would like to learn more, I will guide you to the appropriate books and resources.

  • Energy production and oxid
