Nutrition - Easy to follow diet advice for everyday peopleMost of us like to think that our diet is fairly healthy apart from a few drinks on the weekend or a few junk foods now and then. Then a new trend appears : low fat, low carb, low G.I, high protein, gluten free - leaving us confused as to what is a healthy diet?
Learn which foods best suit your body type
Seeing a Nutritionist will help you eliminate the fads and learn which foods best suit your body.
The simplest change in diet can make a huge difference to your health. For example, many people with bloated belly's feel better when they switch from eating normal bread to eating a yeast free sourdough bread. They didn't need to give up bread, just change the type of bread they eat and the bloating disappears.
There are many simple things you can incorporate into your diet to help boost your energy and wellbeing. Food is an enjoyable part of our daily lives and choosing to eat well is the single best health insurance you could ever take out.

Balance Your Hormones
Is a hormone imbalance affecting your health? Feeling not quite right? If your tests say there's nothing wrong but you want more advice...
There are many things in our modern lives which can disrupt our hormones. Long term use of the contraceptive pill, residues from plastic used to store food and drink, exposure to environmental chemicals, cleaning products and perhaps the biggest cause is just plain old stress! The majority of hormone tests are designed to pick up hormone imbalances at the extreme end of the spectrum. People with a mild hormone imbalance can sometimes be overlooked when first tested and left with no medical reason for why they are feeling so out of balance. But often there may be a mild hormone imbalance which if treated early, can be corrected with natural medicine and improve overall health and wellbeing.
The way the "normal range" for a hormone test is decided by scientists, is obtained by taking a large group of people in the population, measuring their hormone levels, and calculating an average value.
These ranges have quite a broad scope, and many people whose hormones test high or low within the "normal range" may be developing the early signs of a hormonal imbalance. What is "normal" for you to feel healthy and for your hormones to function well may not fall within the range of the average population. So many of us test our hormones and are told there is nothing wrong, however we really feel that something is in fact very out of balance.
