Changing your life from the inside out…..
Welcome to I Love Greens Nutritional Therapy and congratulations on making the first step in improving your diet and health!
Try to think of a day gone by when you didn’t eat – you were probably ill or too busy/stressed to eat – and ultimately ended the day feeling exhausted and pretty miserable. And if this occurs on a regular basis we may suffer from mood swings, poor skin condition, headaches, fatigue and even nutrient deficiencies etc. So if food and nutrition are so important to our well-being why do we pay it so little attention?
There is so much food choice available these days – some healthy, some made to look healthy by clever marketing, and some that is just plain bad – it’s hard to know what to eat. Couple that with the busy, multi-tasking lives we all lead and it is no wonder diet related health issues such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers are on the rise. After all, as with anything, you get out what you put in!
I Love Greens take a different approach to teaching good nutrition and healthy lifestyles. We like our clients to enjoy their lives without feeling deprived. So enjoy that glass of wine and indulge in the occasional desert – we teach you all about balance.
When you come to see us, rather than dealing with your symptoms and health concerns in isolation, we use the functional medicine model to look at why something might be happening. We then look at ways of supporting the whole body through diet, nutrition and lifestyle to encourage an improvement in your health. Whilst this approach is holistic in its nature, it is all based on current scientific research. And as a complementary therapy, we will always recommend you consult with your GP regarding any medical conditions and work as closely as possible with them and other members of the medical community.
Or perhaps you want to take a more pro-active approach to your health and want to learn more about how to strengthen your body in order to help it resist disease, illness and to help optimise performance. Nutritional therapy empowers you to do this.
Where necessary we may use the testing services of a clinical laboratory to identify any possible contributing factors to your health concerns. Some these laboratories are also used by the medical profession. In fact the services of one such laboratory – Biolab Medical Unit – were used in the recent Channel 4 Series The Food Hospital.
Throughout this site you’ll find more information about nutritional therapy as well as the services that we offer – they range from 1-0n-1 consultations to group seminars and lectures. There’s also our blog where we will try to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the world of health and nutrition. We will also try to make sense of all the contradictory news stories that we read every day. In fact if you have a request for a blog post get in touch and let us know. It’s also important for you to understand the qualifications that allows our nutritional therapist, Nicola Ragon to safely and effectively practice in this field; so please take some time to read about her.
In 400 BC Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”. So if you want to see how food can help you take control of your own health whilst still enjoying life, get in touch by email or call on 01277 833032
