Hippocrates said “Let thy food be thy medicine” and this is definitely the motto use at “The herbal geek wholistic Clinic”. Yes, “wholistic”! That’s because holistic comes from whole and here at the Clinic we treat people as whole individuals made of body, mind and spirit. To be healthy and to keep being healthy throughout our life, we, as whole individuals, need indeed to be in balance with all these three different aspects. Holistic Nutrition means in fact ‘Nourishing the Body, Mind, and Spirit’ and my Philosophy is helping people to shift to a healthier and more peaceful relationship with their eating habits and motivating them step by step to a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
My specialisations are in Gut Health and Hormonal Imbalance.
Gut Health is fundamental to our overall health. Imbalances in our gut microbiome can contribute to the overgrowth of pathogenic agents like viruses, bacteria and fungi. Gut dysbiosis can often lead to diseases that affect the immune, digestive and nervous systems.
For example, diseases such as IBS, Reflux, Chron’s Disease, Celiac Disease, Diverticulitis, Constipation, Food Allergies, mental health issues and even autism and ADHD can often be connected to gut health dysbiosis. An holistic approach involves specific diet changes, a detoxification protocol, natural therapeutics and practitioner-client support.
When we think about Hormonal Imbalances, we usually think about infertility issues and other health issues such as endometriosis, PCOS, uterine fibroids, infections, and low testosterone. What many may not know is that hormonal imbalances can also affect metabolism, mental health and thyroid. Through a healthy diet, lifestyle and emotional support, we can revert the process and re-establish normal hormonal levels and excellent health.
