About me

Hi, I'm Louise and my aim is to spread the word to as many people as possible about how food and lifestyle can seriously change your health and your life! You can read just how food changed my husbands health by looking at https://www.thefoodphysio.com/louise-blanchfields-story/

I’m in a unique position as I’m a chartered physiotherapist and nutritional therapist. Physiotherapy is all about restoring normal movement and, for me, nutritional therapy is about helping your body to restore normal system function. So, any nutrition plan is designed to optimise a combination of food changes and exercise to maximise your chances of improving your health.

We are all different, our guts are as unique as our hair and eye colour so, just because one of us is okay to eat something, doesn’t mean that we all can. We need to work out what our body needs more of or less of than other people. Assessment with me would look at your symptoms and the food you eat to see what vitamins or minerals you may be lacking in. I then devise a plan specifically for you taking your health issues into consideration but working with you so that your plan suits you, your budget, your lifestyle and any time constraints that you may have.

I will give you your plan, meal suggestions, a 3 day menu, shopping lists and recipes all included in the initial consultation fee to help give you the best chance possible to make the changes that you need to in order to start feeling better. Follow up emails are also included in the fee.

You can also see a whole load of recipes on my website www.thefoodphysio.com in the blog that you can go to now and be making tomorrow! The article section has a number of different pieces ranging from 'how to self treat soft tissue injuries' to 'sports nutrition'.

Nutritional therapy is all about helping people to help themselves, I'm here to help and guide, it's you that does the real work as you make the changes. If you'd like me to help you call now or book via the website.

I look forward to working with you!

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy - I've been a chartered physiotherapist for 19 years working in the NHS initially, then private occupational health firms and latterly in my own practise & providing onsite services to businesses. I specialise in musculoskeletal problems.

Diploma CNM Nutritional Therapy - I trained in nutrition after the dramatic changes in my husbands health after dietary change due to the desire to share our experience with the power of food to other people in similar situations.

BSc (Hons) Neuroscience - Although I have never worked as a neuroscientist the knowledge this degree has given me gives me a broader understanding of neurological conditions and their effects on the body.
