Ten Great Years
It's ten years since I set up shop  as a nutritional therapist in Nottingham after a career in the software industry. Thank you to the many clients who have put their faith in me - it's a great privilege working with you. Here's to another ten!

Christmas recipes
Click here for my tried and tested Christmas recipes, including mince pies made with gluten-free almond pastry -much better than shop-bought. 
 This is the only Christmas pudding recipe you'll need. It's light, fruity and a simple swap of ingredients makes it gluten-free.
Vegetarians will love this luxury Christmas nut roast with a mushroom and wine sauce.
Happy Christmas!


 Nutritional therapy is the key to a healthy brain

Can you reverse early onset Alzheimer's through nutritional therapy? Neurologist Professor Dale Bredesden thinks so. At a conference I attended a few months ago, Professor Bredesden explained  his success with 120 Alzheimer's patients. He has shown that Alzheimer's can be reversed with a functional medicine approach that combines nutrition and lifestyle tailored to an individual's requirements (exactly how nutritional therapy works). 
Alzheimer's is the disease we all fear, yet there is no drug cure,  despite the millions spent on research.
Now for the good news: Professor Bredesden has demonstrated that Alzheimer's is largely within our control.  He combines medicine with nutrition and lifestyle to tackle the multiple underlying causes of Alzheimer's, including inflammation, hormone imbalances, gut health, toxicity, poor sleep and nutrient deficiencies. 

Your genes aren't always your destiny
The way we live and what we eat can switch our genes on and off, including those linked to cognitive health.  A simple mouth swab sent to the lab for analysis can unlock the code to your  genetic strengths and weaknesses. I introduced genetic testing to my practice this year and have found it to be a hit with clients. The information provided enables them to to maximise their wellbeing by eating optimally to modify any genetic weaknesses.

Prevention is better than cure
Isn't it better to preserve health rather than wait for disease to strike? The functional medicine approach to health seeks to understand  the underlying causes of chronic disease, including a patient's genetic tendencies. This information enables me to put together an individualised healthy eating and living plan matched to an individual's unique requirements. 

 I offer a free, no-obligation 10-minute consultation for anyone who wants to find out more about nutritional therapy. Just email me your phone number and I'll call you.  Make 2017 the year you  really take control of your health.

Finally, I'd like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a very healthy 2017. 


p.s. I'll be taking a Christmas break from 23rd December until 9th January. 

I'm always pleased to hear from clients old and new. If you have a health concern you would like to discuss in confidence before making an appointment for a nutritional therapy consultation, please get in touch through my web site contact form or send me an email with your phone number,
