Emma Maitland-Carew DipION FdSc, mBANT, CNHC, Functional Medicine
Emma has a very busy full-time practice where she offers Nutritional Therapy Consultations on all health issues. She regularly supports client's gut health, hormone balance, weight loss, auto-immune conditions, optimal nutrition and wellbeing. Although Emma works to alleviate her client’s symptoms, her training in Functional Medicine focuses on finding each individual’s unique biochemical imbalances and looking at the body as a whole to assist her in understanding the root cause of the illness or condition. She uses the most comprehensive nutritional analysis questionnaire, a thorough health history, observations, and laboratory testing, where necessary, to gather the information she needs.
As well as being an accredited Nutritional Therapist, she is also qualified and certified in Live and Dried Blood Analysis, HeartMath and metabolic balance. The Live and Dried Blood Analysis provides valuable indications about nutritional imbalances and deficiencies, certain biochemical imbalances, immune system imbalances, micro-organisms (parasites, yeast and bacteria), and organ/system dysfunctions. Although it cannot diagnose disease, it can show the impact that diet and lifestyle has had on health. Live blood analysis is also a helpful visual tool for monitoring progress and showing clients the effects of the changes they have made.
The HeartMath gives Emma tools to help her clients manage stress and develop strategies to manage stress while minimising the detrimental effects of stress on our bodies. Metabolic Balance creates individual nutritional plans to assist with weight loss supporting the body back to its unique metabolism.
