An underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, affects up to one in eight women – and 60% of sufferers are unaware, according to Thyroid UK. One of the many symptoms of an underactive thyroid is struggling to lose weight and for this reason, we see many individuals with hypothyroidism in our clinic. Other symptoms include feeling the cold, dry skin, thinning hair, feeling tired all the time, constipation and low mood. However symptoms can vary from one individual to the next. Whether you’ve already been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and feel like you would benefit from additional support in managing your condition and it’s symptoms, or you would like to get tested for hypothyroidism, we can help.
Irritable bowel syndrome (or IBS) is a very common condition, believed to affect up to one in five people at some point during their life. Symptoms of IBS can include constipation, diarrhoea, bloating and stomach cramps, to name just a few. For some people, symptoms can be infrequent and mild. For others they can be consistent and debilitating. There are a number of potential causes of IBS which can include food sensitivities, stress and intestinal dysbiosis (a microbial imbalance in the gut), to name just a few. Assessing the root cause of your IBS is important in order to understand the best way to overcome the problem. As well as analysing a detailed case history to determine potential triggers, tests can be carried out to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying cause. Each person is different and the cause of IBS can vary from one individual to the next. We work with clients to evaluate the root cause of IBS and implement a plan to overcome the symptoms. Typically, addressing IBS involves a combination of dietary alterations, nutritional supplementation, and addressing lifestyle factors such as stress.
Low Energy Levels / Fatigue
Many of us are familiar with the ‘need’ for that cup of coffee to wake us up in the morning. Or perhaps you get to 4pm and feel like you could fall asleep at your desk. Are you one of the countless people who have no specific health complaint, you just don’t feel 100%? Food provides us with the energy needed for effective body and brain function. What we choose to eat can therefore have a dramatic impact on the level and consistency of energy provided. Deminishing energy levels is not an inevitable part of the ageing process as many people believe – you don’t have to put up with feeling below par! Eating the right combinations of foods, at the right times, helps your body to provide you with consistent energy throughout the day keeping you awake, alert, focussed and performing at your best.
