Helen Lambert DipION mBANT CNHC
No two people are the same. Our entire life history, right back to before we were born, can impact on how our bodies function today. And we can no longer consider body parts or conditions in isolation. Everything is connected!
Our body, our gut and our brain, is in constant communication with each other. For optimal health we have to not only consider the individual, but to consider the individual as a whole.
Most importantly I believe that life is for living and food is to be enjoyed. Small and well-targeted changes to diet and lifestyle really can have a significant and positive impact on health and wellbeing.
Please visit my website for more information, or you can can drop me an email or give me a call. Please do get in touch, I would love to hear from you. I really do work with people, just like you.
