Nutritionist ... What exactly is a nutritionist?...You may be thinking.  I definitely had this thought many years ago, after being recommended to see one. I was under the pre-conceived idea, "I am young, healthy, free from medication, never been to hospital, why would I spend money on someone telling me what I should or shouldn't be eating,"WELL didn't I have things wrong.

Spending £100.00 every week on an osteopath, I was having chronic headaches/migraines, back pain, my mood was all over the place, not to mention my menstrual cycle being all over the place, ooh and those late night leg cramps and crippling stomach cramps.

Nutritionist look predominantly at the diet, and how this correlates with the signs and symptoms.  Katrina's initial approach to health and treatment is through diet, to correct any imbalances in your health. This is done by assessing your body's macro and micro nutrients are in balance.   Assessment of these nutrients entails a look at daily food and drink choices, tests obtained from your doctor, also undertaking test if needed.

To obtain a comprehensive understanding of the client a look into  lifestyle, family background and environment, as well as the history of your illness or complaint. This information is important so that we can discover the cause of the illness.  You are treated as a whole person, not your disease or illness.

Katrina's  training provides her with the skills to work under the six naturopathic principles:

  • The healing power of nature
  • First do no harm
  • Find and treat the cause, not only the symptom
  • Always treat the whole person, not only their disease
  • Education
  • Prevention.

Naturopathy maintains that the body can heal itself if it is given the right circumstances and conditions.

These foundations of naturopathy – importance of diet, clean fresh water, sunlight, exercise and stress management are a primary focus.

A range of treatments or therapies are used to stimulate the body's own healing powers dietetics, homoeopathy, Colon
hydrotherapy/Irrigation, lifestyle advice, aromatherapy and tactile therapies, such as cupping and ear candling and seeding.

Our aim is to:

  • Minimise symptoms
  • Support the body's vital force (its capacity to self-heal)
  • Re-balance the system so that illness is less likely to occur in the future
  • Educate the patient to look after their own health and the health of their family
