What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutritional science in the promotion of optimum health, peak performance and disease prevention. Nutritional therapy encompasses the use of carefully compiled recommendations for diet and lifestyle in order to alleviate or prevent ailments and promote optimal health. Nutritional therapy believes that a stressful lifestyle, deficient diet, and too much of the wrong sort of foods and other toxic substances, are the cause of most chronic conditions found today. Based on solid scientific principles and the latest research, nutritional therapy uses foods and nutrients to alleviate disease and strengthen vitality.

Nutritional Therapy can be effective with or without conventional medicine depending on the client and the condition.

Over the last 9 years I have specialised in the area of cardiovascular disease detection and prevention, which has led me to the very closely related area of blood sugar problems including diabetes (T2), pre-diabetes, abdominal obesity and chronic inflammatory conditions. I now offer a unique service that focuses on the early detection and prevention of the underlying cause of diabetes. More information can be found at here. ??????

My Goals

It is my goal to provide effective, reasonably priced nutritional advice to a wide variety of clients. Nutritional therapists often work with clients who have chronic health problems. These include allergies, digestive and bowel disorders, hormonal imbalances, fatigue, depression, stress-related disorders, auto-immune conditions, joint problems, skin disorders, fertility problems, learning and behavior difficulties in children, among many others.

Workshops
I also run regular Workshops on:
Diabetes prevention – Say No Diabetes…Healthy Hearts…Preparing for Pregnancy…Mens Health…Womens Health…Weight Loss…and more.

These days are centered around Eating and Learning! So come hungry for yummy, nourishing food, and hungry for knowledge. Price includes all meals, and workbook.

Special area of Interest:

Heart Health, Diabetes and Alzheimer’sblueheart

All aspects of cardiovascular disease is an area that I have a special interest in,  and I run Healthy Heart Programs, focusingwords on dietary and lifestyle changes that can be made to bring down cholesterol, blood pressure, improve circulation  and reduce fatigue etc. Good food, weight loss, exercise and targeted nutritional protocols may be part of the program. The early detection and prevention of diabetes is an area that is showing huge scope across all age groups, and with the  rising levels of obesity and diabetes a straight forward, successful, science based approach is required. Alzheimer’s, a condition linked to and associated with the above conditions. Functional medicine is showing excellent results in both the prevention and reversal of this condition.

Do you have an issue with cholesterol, blood pressure, angina, fatigue, chest pain, poor circulation or diabetes? Is there a family history of heart disease? Would you like to know how healthy your arteries are, for your age?

 Irish Heart Health based in Miltown Co Kerry is a specialist service providing clients with a concise picture of their cardiovascular health with a view to preventing a heart attack and stroke through stroke through the analysis of risk factors and raising awareness.

We provide you with a detailed nutritional, dietary and lifestyle assessment .We then design a specific program to enhance your cardiovascular health with particular emphasis on the normalization of blood pressure, reductions in cholesterol levels and other criteria including weight loss, fat distribution, and fitness levels, if required. The results for those who comply with the program are over all, excellent.

An Irish Heart Health consultation is suitable for people of all ages, it is a personalized consultation which aims to focus a person on the prevention of heart disease. As in all areas of nutritional therapy all “red flags” are addressed, and we can work alongside your GP program.

A personalized diet and lifestyle program is prepared for each person, to include healthy, satisfying, low carb/healthy fat choices for meals. I encourage my clients to learn, and understand the value of the dietary changes, to liaise with their GP and to monitor their blood sugars closely (if relevant) especially if they are on medications.
