GOOD NUTRITION, IMPROVED DIGESTION, BETTER BOWEL FUNCTION, BALANCED BODYWEIGHT . . .
Don't forget that good nutrition isn't just about health for healthy people. Improved digestion, better bowel function, balanced bodyweight, stronger immunity - all these things together are vitally important in helping to reduce the risk of disease. If properly applied, the results can be life-changing. And because the right kind of diet has, in many different situations, the capacity to relieve the symptoms of existing illness, it can also be a fantastic source of support to anyone whose general health isn't so strong.
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE . . . I can speak from personal experience here. I had several good reasons for deciding to train as a nutritionist. One was because of my first husband's diabetes and cancer diagnoses (click here to read It's OK To Be A Late Starter, an article reprinted with kind permission from The Independent newspaper). The other was because I was always a sickly child and a magnet for illness in my teens. Always depressed by such circumstances, I never felt robust or strong. Good nutrition is one of the things that has made a massive difference. Until I changed my diet I suffered for years with appalling acne that several dermatologists told me was absolutely nothing to do with food. They said it was hormones and that diet would make no difference! So explain, then, why great nutrition has not only boosted my immune system but also given me the bonus of zit-free skin, thicker hair and stronger nails? Instead of feeling tired, vulnerable and under par, I feel nurtured and protected by my top notch diet and high quality supplements that I feed to my body. I know this because on the rare occasions I've 'slipped', my health slipped, too. Almost from the very first day of training, I realised that the idea of using diet as a therapeutic treatment made complete sense, and experience has confirmed this to me over and over again since then. Having said that, don't for a moment get the idea that I'm some kind of goody two shoes about my food. Because I'm a nutritionist, some people seem to think that I live on a diet of lettuce and lentils. I can assure you that I don’t. I eat as healthily as normal life allows (click here for my own healthy food favourites) but I also acknowledge the spirit-lifting solace of special treats including my husband's fabulous cake and delicious yeast free bread which I hope you will enjoy, too!
BOOKS AND ARTICLES ON HEALTH & DIET
If you're looking for things to eat to help you lose weight or to ease the symptoms of illness, then you are definitely in the right place. The pages of this website are written especially for you. Here you'll find details of my books on diet and healthy eating but also what will be an ever growing list of health features on subjects ranging from allergies and cholesterol to weight problems and stroke. There are separate pages on a whole range of health supplements and skin care products that I've tried and think you might like to know about, plus another on my own food favourites.
WHERE TO BEGIN?
For some SUPER SNEAKY SHORTCUTS check out my EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN. I'm pretty sure you're going to find the info that's in there to be well worth the read.
What I bet you'll find surprising is that by avoiding the combination of certain food types which don't digest well when eaten together, it's very often the case that bodyweight normalises over time without the need for any severe calorie cutting. Weight trickles away more gently and slowly but, once the target is achieved, it tends to stay where it should AND is less likely to go back on. This may be helped by the fact that the system I use is based on eating healthily for the long term, as opposed to the type of dieting regimes that you 'go on' and then 'come off'.
I'm not making any outrageous claims here and, for sure, it's important to understand that the same results don't apply to everyone, but these are just some of the benefits I've seen in many patients over many years. That's why I think that making these changes is SO worth the effort.
This site will be updated regularly so do please come back often and make yourself at home. I shall look forward to your company.
Wishing you the best of better health.
