The road to less pain and optimal health is often a progression which takes time and commitment.
Conventional medicine often gives a quick solution to pain yet may cause many other issues in turn.
Nutritional medicine differs in that it aims to treat the cause of pain as well as symptoms though in a much more advantageous way for the body's own healing processes to occur.
Remember the old adage 'prevention is better than cure'...Many times it has taken years to develop chronic pain in particular and this cannot be expected to change in a day, good results take time.
I see many people come unstuck expecting instantaneous results as opposed to others who commit to a treatment and see their body's ability to heal and in turn reduce thus improving their lives.
The body has an innate ability to heal itself if given the right tools.
I am able to give you these tools but ultimately it is how you decide to use them that will best indicate the outcome you want.
Conceive it, believe it and you will achieve it.
To begin, a nutritional consultation involves a full case history to be taken, including current diet, medical history, family health history and review of presenting pain. This will help with developing an individualised treatment plan best suited to you and, with ongoing support help you achieve optimum health.
Hi everyone and thank you for visiting my site, I hope you enjoy it and find it useful in helping develop an insight into the power of foods and how they can promote healing and reduce pain.
I'm a practising qualified Clinical Nutritionist with a keen passion for helping and educating others on the profound impact nutrients in food can have on both acute and chronic pain.
Most standard medical practices tend to treat pain with pharmaceutical drugs which can often lead to other complications and health issues. By addressing the cause of the pain as well as the symptoms, nutritional treatment will provide long term relief and not just mask it by use of prescription medications.
Most pain symptoms can be reduced and/or managed through what we include or omit from our diet and it is important to realise that even small steps can achieve great changes if given time.
I suffer with chronic nerve pain everyday due to severe injuries and have learnt to develop eating and lifestyle habits that centre around helping my body to both heal and reduce my pain levels for everyday functioning. It has made a huge impact and the heavy pharmaceutical drugs often offered to me have become something I don't need to rely on to reduce my pain.
I am a keen gardener/hobby farmer and I love to grow what I can or source locally if I can't. Food and creating recipes is a passion of mine which I hope to share with you along the way.
Believe me I enjoy treats as much as the next person and I don't believe we should all be depriving ourselves of a little indulgence now and again. Life may not always be pain free but it is here to be enjoyed!
