Henrietta Paxton, MSc, Bsc, mBANT, mCNH. Midlands and London
Real Nutrition for sport, exercise and optimal health.
Henrietta is a two time Commonwealth Games representative, and current Scottish pole vault record holder. Now as a Registered Nutritional Therapist Henrietta's 20-year international athletic career provides unique understanding of the demands that daily stress, training and fatigue put on the body and she has experienced their wide-reaching effects. An MSc in Personalised Nutrition alongside a BSc in Sport and exercise science has expanded this experience into a profound knowledge of nutrition science and its functional application to all health and disease.
Traditional sports nutrition based on calories and macronutrients never resonated with Henrietta. However a functional approach targeting the individual, appreciating the holistic nature of the human body and the incredible power of nutrients changed everything when she found herself battling two potential career ending injuries and real emotional lows.
"Once I understood how out of balance my body was, nutrition gave me a solid foundation on which to build quality training. I realised that my body wasn’t letting me down - I was letting my body down"
The bombardment of foodie information now available makes it overwhelming to know how best to nourish your body to achieve your goals. But with Henrietta's elite experience you too can use the nutrients nature intended to fuel your goals.
With a fundamental love of real food Henrietta is now passionate that people should understand just how astonishing their body is which, given the right nourishment, has an astounding ability to heal. So, no matter what challenge you face, injury, dis-ease or maintaining optimal health, good nutrition can support your body to do incredible things.
