Nutritional Therapy

Christine qualified in 2006 from Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health.

Nutritional Therapy is a dynamic holistic therapy that uses food, phytonutrients, therapeutic food supplements and lifestyle changes to modulate disease processes, strengthen vitality and promote optimal wellness. Functional Medicine has emerged as a more positive and productive approach to chronic illness than the traditional disease-based model. Nutritional Therapy as taught at IINH applies the person-centered approaches used in Functional Medicine to restore health.

Conditions that often respond well to nutritional therapy include:

  • Digestive disorders: constipation, IBS, bloating, heartburn, reflux
  • Low energy & vitality, food cravings, low blood sugar
  • Poor sleep
  • Hormonal imbalances: PMS, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, menopause difficulties
  • Infertility (in men, too) and problem pregnancies
  • Skin disorders: acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea

Hair Mineral Analysis

Hair Mineral Analysis is a way to show us how our body is functioning at a cellular level. While blood tests may show normal levels of minerals, our cells may be depleted of those vital minerals. A body that is depleted in minerals will not function properly.

Do you suffer from unexplained symptoms? Do you wonder if you are taking the correct supplements? Do you wonder are you eating the right foods? Do you have the right level of Zinc, Calcium, Selenium, Sodium, Potassium, and Chromium? How are the ratios between those minerals affecting your health? Are toxic metals contributing to your symptoms? Your hair can reveal a lot about your health.

A hair analysis offers a simple way of checking your body’s mineral levels and toxins from a simple analysis of the hair. A hair analysis test will also determine whether you have any toxic metals such as Lead, Mercury or Aluminium. Finding deficiencies before they become a problem will set you on the right path to better health.

Cost €150.00. This price includes detailed report and nutritional consultation along with personalised diet and supplement programme.
