Amanda Morris Nutrition FdSc, Dip ION, mBANT, CNHC.
Hi, I'm Amanda, I'm a fully qualified and insured Nutritional Therapist practising in Berkhamsted and the surrounding areas. I provide individual nutrition consultations designed specifically around your needs and lifestyle. Nutritional Therapy seeks to identify underlying imbalances which may be contributing to your health issues, or performance. Often small changes may reap big results. Nutritional therapy can be powerful, targeted and extremely effective in all manner of scenarios.
The process involves completing a detailed health questionnaire and food diary clarifying the issues you are looking to support, this is done prior to your first consultation. I will spend on average 4 hours analysing the information and researching any specific issues. You will then come for the first consultation where there is more information gathering and we then work out a prioritised plan, that fits with your life and aims to address any imbalances that may be contributing to your health issues. The follow up consultations involve monitoring your progress, helping with menu planning and working on other imbalances to support optimal health.
So often in life we look for an immediate 'quick fix' only to realise it may not be the long term solution. Nutritional Therapy, from a qualified practitioner, may be part of your long term solution. We work together to form new food and lifestyle habits that are easy, time efficient and satisfying. In general we do not go down the 'extreme' route. Many clients find that a few manageable additions or substitutions to their diet may trigger significant benefits in terms of health.
I am also a qualified Metabolic Balance coach. Metabolic Balance is a nutritional prescription based on results of your personal blood tests which measure over 40 parameters. It aims to balance multiple areas of your metabolism potentially enhancing health and weight loss. It is fully supported by nutritional research and can be an incredible tool. I offer a first free consultation (30 minutes) to see if Metabolic Balance is right for you.
I welcome your contact to answer any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at The Institute of Optimum Nutrition in London, one of the UK's leading schools of science and evidence based Nutritional Therapy. I am fully registered with both BANT (the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) and CNHC (the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council) and I am fully insured to practice.
I've previously suffered a number of health issues which puts me in a unique position to practice with knowledge and understanding of how health issues can affect your day to day life. I have previously worked with some of the following areas:-
Thyroid Health - Having personally( previously) suffered from less than optimal thyroid health I offer a tailored approach to support thyroid health with a deep understanding of how this important system can impact your daily life.
Digestive function - Many people suffer with less then optimal digestive health and think it to be normal. Imbalances in the digestive tract can impact overall health in multiple ways and have an impact on your quality of life. We work together to devise a plan that works for your taste and your life and supports your digestive system aiming for optimal function.
Enhanced Detoxification. Enhanced detoxification is a powerful strategy which aims to support and enhance the body's natural detoxification processes. Many environments can increase our toxic load. I use individually tailored dietary programmes along with appropriate supportive supplementation and a far infrared sauna, an incredibly effective combined approach aimed at fine tuning the body's own detox systems.
Metabolic Balance. This is the well respected weight loss programme from Germany based on enhancing your metabolism for optimum benefit in terms of weight loss and health. A blood test is performed measuring over 40 markers and MB provide a food prescription based on those results. If you are somone who likes to be told exactly what to eat for the best results, MB is for you.
