The kind of diet & lifestyle advice a nutritional therapist provides:
A key component of nutritional therapy is exploring the client’s medical history, along with a full frank assessment of the client’s current health status.
Nutritional therapy is built around the health-maintaining principals of adopting a rich, nutrient-dense diet that avoids heavily processed food.
A therapist will devise a lifestyle appropriate meal plan that emphasises a balanced, enjoyable and sustainable approach to health and diet.
In some cases a Nutritional Therapist may suggest natural supplements including vitamins, probiotics and minerals with a view to optimising a client’s nutritional status.
Food intolerance can show itself in many forms such as:
Bloating or Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Headaches and Migraines
As well, these problems may occur 2 hours after eating or even 2 days after ingesting the food which you are intolerant to. This is why it can be difficult to self-identify which foods you have intolerances to.
At West Cork Nutrition and Wellbeing, we offer Brunel Health Food Intolerance Testing for our clients. This test is done by taking a small finger prick blood sample which we send to a specialist laboratory to be analysed. Within 3 days, you will receive a report that details your reactions to 134 different foods and drinks on a scale of 0-5.
This test can be done from the comfort of your own home, or if you prefer you can make an appointment with us at West Cork Nutrition and Wellbeing to perform the test for you. If you choose you would like to do this test at home, we are able to post it out to you.
If you are interested in having a food intolerance test done, please contact us.
"It was January 19th 2021, I had just gotten the all clear from my
Consultant ; this is my story ;
I was recovering from a knee and tendon injury , my bones were all achy, I was bloated and was feeling absolutely terrible, I had gained 4 stone over a three year period .
I was entering my fourth year post breast cancer and I was blaming the Tamoxifen and early menopause for my weight gain . I had tried and failed to loose weight over and over again and while I might loose a few pounds it all would go back on.
I heard about West Cork Nutrition and Wellbeing from a friend and so my journey started on January 20th 2021 when I met Letitia Moss , the
nutritionist who I can say without hesitation has been inspirational on my journey .
Letitia talked me through an individualised plan , explained everything in detail and followed up with me regularly with sourced material and recipes while always being so encouraging and supportive .
We meet weekly for a session and weigh in , Letitia is absolutely wonderful , very knowledgeable and has devised a plan for me that consists of wholesome food, with many and varied recipes that Letitia has sourced for me , mostly foods that I like .
While my success to date is that I have lost just over 2 stone the real success is the way I feel !
I am now very energetic , I am sleeping better , my pains and aches are vastly improved , I no longer suffer from indigestion and people tell me I am looking great.
I am still on my journey but I can honestly say I will never return to my prior eating pattern . I do not view this plan as a diet , it consists of
healthy foods , wholesome foods and I can honestly say I have actually never ate so much tasty food.
I am looking forward to the summer so that I can wear the clothes that I want to and engage in activities without feeling all pains and aches like I did for the past 3 years .
I owe all my gratitude to Letitia Moss who without hesitation I can highly recommend . "
