Nutrition plays a big role in building and maintaining your health. We know our patients are all unique and are in different stages of life, with differing needs and schedules. We take a tailored approach and work with you to create nutritional plans to suit your personal needs and lifestyle.
FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN
We offer Paediatric Nutritional/Dietetic Support to families of children suffering from conditions such as eczema and lactose intolerance, and also more complex problems such as Fussy Eating.
For families of older children with behavioural and food-related problems we are able to Work in Tandem with our Clinical Psychologists and therapists, to help tackle problems such as teenage obesity and eating disorders, including Bulimia and Anorexia.
We are able to treat patients for fertility-related issues. We can offer patients who are exploring this area a clinical dietetic opinion that Works Alongside any Treatments they are undergoing. With assisted fertility treatments like IVF, the drugs involved can cause some women to develop side-effects such as weight gain and mood changes. We are able to Support Patients in a Non-medical way and enable them to take control of their bodies. As the pregnancy progresses we can help with scenarios such as weight gain, morning sickness, gestational diabetes, anaemia, etc.
With middle aged and older women we can help treat many age-related conditions such as obesity, diabetes, hyperlipidaemias and menopause-related symptoms such as hot flushes and mood changes. Healthy food can play a key role in Enabling Women to Feel Better, whether they’re suffering from Endocrinological Problems such as hypothyroidism or dermatological issues such as acne and urticaria.
We help just as many men as women; our experience includes treating male-related health issues from indigestion to hypertension, depression and loss of libido.
We work with you to help with a wide range of medical symptoms including:
For complex psychological problems such as autism and other mental health disorders such as schizophrenia, nutritional therapies can often be effective in helping to reduce symptoms and problems. Often drugs used in treating mental health problems can have side-effects which can benefit from nutritional advice, and it can also be very supportive and empowering for a family with offspring and/or a spouse suffering with mental health issues to have a non-medical therapeutic plan.
ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
Anxiety and depression and other psychological problems can all benefit from nutritional intervention – whether taking medication or preferring a non-medical treatment, the type of food you eat and the way you live your life can have a profound effect on mood and anxiety.
We can treat patients who have problems that reduce their fertility rate, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, as well as people who are undergoing fertility treatments such as IVF and all other assisted fertility procedures. Not only does nutrition play a role in boosting fertility rates in couples, but also fertility treatments often cause other problems such as mood changes and weight gain, which can be very effectively dealt with by changing the way someone eats. We treat not only women but also men, looking at how to improve libido and other fertility and sex-related problems.
As well as dealing with the general questions like, ‘What is good for a pregnant woman to eat and to avoid?’, nutritionists can deal with problems such as morning sickness, weight gain and tiredness. As well as more complex problems such as gestational diabetes and iron deficiency anaemia. We also offer post-birth advice on how women can get back into shape and juggle their own food and nourishment needs with those of their newborn.
Our Nutritionist can help with all sorts of paediatric scenarios from lactose intolerance and food allergies/intolerances to failure to thrive and obesity. We see a lot of children with digestive problems, from excess wind and colic to more serious clinical problems like coeliac disease and acid reflux. Changing the way a child eats can also help behavioural problems such as ADHD, autism and depression. Empowering the family of a child with behavioural and physical difficulties to take some control over what the family and child eats can be a great way to work – not only does the patient benefit from specific nutrient-related therapeutic relief, but enabling someone to feel that something positive is being offered can have all sorts of beneficial side-effects.
