I hold a professional and accredited qualification in Nutrition.

Nutrition is fundamental to our very existence it is the building blocks in helping us look better, feel better and live longer. It is important for everyone because food gives our bodies the nutrients they need to stay healthy, grow, and work properly. Foods are made up of 6 classes of nutrients, each with its own special role in the body:

  • Protein builds muscles and a strong immune system
  • Carbohydrates (including starches and sugars) give you energy
  • Fat gives you extra energy
  • Minerals regulate body processes and also make up body tissues
  • Water gives cells shape and acts as a medium where body processes can occur
  • Vitamins regulate body processes

Most of us never consider the acid/alkaline balance in our food. A balanced pH (potential hydrogen) protects us from the inside out. Disease and disorder, cannot take root in a body whose pH is balanced. By eating the right foods in the right amounts will give you the important nutrients for your body to function correctly daily. An imbalance of acid and alkaline foods allows unhealthy organisms to flourish and comprises our immune system.

Exercise is also an important contributory factor to good health, though exercise alone will not keep you healthy, you also need to eat properly. When we eat good food, we are fueling our bodies with the correct vitamins and nutrients. It is all about going back to basics and meal planning.

When I structure a program I take a number of issues in to consideration relating to your lifestyle choices, your goals, age, gender, medical history and genetic makeup. Our first session will take approximately one and a half hours, discussing these areas.
