Hina provides a holistic approach to health and well-being looking at nutrition and lifestyle factors. She has a special interest in is supporting brain health. Our modern lifestyle can take a huge toll on the brain and there is a large increase in brain related conditions. Many mental health conditions such as low mood can be supported by nutrition and lifestyle therapy. Cognitive decline as we age has also become an important health concern. Dementia such as Alzheimer’s is the most common age related disease of cognitive decline.
There are steps we can take to minimise our risks and support ourselves to maintain healthy brain function. Poor nutrition and lifestyle play an important part in poor brain health. The brain needs certain nutrients in order to maintain structure and function. Lifestyle factors such as chronic stress can lead to a reduction in mass in certain areas of the brain. Addressing these factors is an important step in supporting not only brain health but our general health as well.
Chronic stress together with nutritional imbalances are so prevalent in today’s society and we are all suffering from the consequences. Our bodies are complex, our brain, heart, gastrointestinal tract, liver, kidneys etc. do not exist in isolation but are connected and so it is important to look at ourselves holistically. We are a product of our genetics, environment, diet and lifestyle.

"I had two appointments with Hina, on both occasions I was impressed by her knowledge and professionalism. She helped me to implement some positive changes to what I was eating by asking lots of questions and carefully analysing my food diary. Hina suggested practical steps that I could take to achieve a more balanced and nutritious diet. I also found her advice and knowledge regarding supplementation to be very helpful. Since implementing these changes I have experienced more energy throughout the day and a greater sense of well-being. Thanks again Hina, see you next time!" W.T.?
