Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food

These very words were spoken by Hippocrates known as the father of modern medicine almost 2500 years ago and still ring true.

Have you ever felt just not right and couldn't put your finger on it.

Have you been gaining weight yet following what you consider to be a balanced diet.

Have you been gradually suffering from digestive problems yet eat all the "right things" or perhaps you have been diagnosed with IBS but your gut has still not settled down.

Food Sensitivities 
 
Are you suffering from food sensitivities but cannot figure out how they came about. Perhaps you are one of those people whom never suffered from these complaints before.

Are menopausal symptoms taking over your life and leaving you with a sense of dread when in company.

How is it that the generation of children born now have a predicted life span that is shorter than their parents. This is the first time in history that we have witnessed such a thing.

These and many more complaints may be helped with Nutritional Therapy

I discovered Nutritional Therapy some years ago having had some health issues myself. I then went on to study this informative therapy. I graduated with a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy from CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine) in 2014 after 3 years of study.  I am a full member of  The Nutritional Therapists of Ireland (NTOI) professional body.

Coeliac Disease
 
Having a special interest in Coeliac Disease and in particular Gluten/Wheat sensitivity I went on to complete the Certified Gluten Practitioner Course developed by Dr. Tom O’Bryan who is an internationally recognised speaker and workshop leader specialising in the complications of Non-Coeliac Gluten/Wheat Sensitivity and Coeliac Disease as they occur inside and outside of the intestines.

I haven’t gone down the road of using many gluten free processed products myself although these are good in their place. I have created a couple of recipes using other flours as a substitute for gluten free processed bread.

Our bodies are capable of healing themselves in many cases if given the right fuel to work off. The aim of nutritional therapy is to support and nurture the body and help to bring what is "out of balance back into balance".   Nutritional therapy may help you change a lifetime of incorrect eating habits and even small changes can make a big difference to our lives.

We do not diagnose or claim to cure and it is always important to seek the advice of a medical practitioner when you are first feeling ill.
