Nutritional Therapy Brighton & Hove

Everything that we eat becomes a part of us in one way or another. This is where we need to be aware of how our food choices are affecting the way we think, feel and perform. 

Nutritional therapy is a nutritional science that seeks to underpin chemical imbalances and works with both foods and nutrients to work towards optimum health, wellbeing and performance. The foods we eat can become risk factors for certain diseases, therefore, it is really important to look into how your diet may be affecting your health. 

I decided to study nutrition at the Institue For Optimum Nutrition as I felt that the knowledge I gained from my personal training course wasn't enough for my clients. The great thing about this was I got to experiment on myself during the course. After suffering with eczema for all my life I am now happy to say that I have been off steroid creams and free of eczema for two years. This demonstrates how powerful dietary changes can be for us. The therapy really looks into what may be going on underneath the symptoms and uses the latest tests and research to determine what may be beneficial for a person. It is highly individualised and does not use the 'one size fits all' scenario!

I am extremely interested in sports nutrition and how the foods we eat can benefit performance, recovery and support the immune system. I work alongside the mentoring team at Sussex University to support  the Sports Scholars with their Nutrition. The main focus is to support their training, competition strategies, recovery and immune systems though nutrition. 

Another area of mine, is supporting children with ADHD and Autism through diet. I have been into schools in West Sussex and helped parents with children with these conditions and seen great results.

My journey with Gemma started in April 2010 where I weighed 102kg, and as a type 1 diabetic my main aim was to lose weight. I initially found it very hard, as I did not have the will power to continue being healthy and I did not listen to Gemma and her advice. Then during the summer months of 2010 I started to listen to her more attentively as she encouraged me to log down what I was eating. The training became more intense as I had signed up to do a mountain summer challenge for July 2011. She has been an excellent personal trainer and continued to push me towards my goals, which I never thought could have been possible last year. My diabetic control has pleased my doctors as it has been controlled the best in my 10 year history of diabetes. My last weigh in was 81.5kg.
