I have had a growing passion for the healing power of food since I was in my twenties. After many years of eating the same boring foods I started to crave a more varied diet full of nutritious food. I started to appreciate the benefits of eating healthy foods can have on your body and mind. I have experienced first hand their affects and wanted to pass this knowledge onto others.
Often tiredness and fatigue can simply be caused by the wrong food and drink choices, which result in your body not getting the sufficient nutrition required for making energy.
We reach for caffeine or sugary snacks, as they give an instant boost, but in the long term they just make matters worse. Low energy and fatigue are probably one of the most common reasons for clients to visit a Nutritional Therapist.
Intense or prolonged, stress can lead to anxiety, depression and exhaustion and can affect our relationships, family life, work and sleep. It can contribute to physical problems too such as headaches and migraines, back and neck pain, irritable bowel syndrome and other digestive issues.
Are you tired most of the time? do you feel your constantly dragging yourself through the day? or do you simply want to have more energy to get the most out of your day? Nutritional Therapy can help you get there. There are many underlying health problems that can be associated with low energy levels.
A longer term lack of energy can be an indication of adrenal fatigue which occurs when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. The adrenal glands control major physiological processes in the body affecting energy levels and how and where the body stores fat. Depleted adrenals can be a contributory factor in thyroid dysfunction, another condition which can lead to exhaustion and further inability to cope with stress. You will be guided on how to make long term, sustainable changes to your diet. You will be surprised how even the smallest of changes can greatly affect your energy levels. You will feel more focused, energised and ready to tackle the day ahead.
