Jane helps her patients identify those areas they need to address if they wish to regain or maintain optimal health. Recommendations to reach this goal will include dietary advice tailored to the individual's needs, specific nutritional supplements where necessary, exercise and other lifestyle suggestions.
Having taken the patient's full medical history, advice on which foods will be beneficial to each individual and which would best be avoided forms the heart of the nutritional programme that they will be given at the end of the consultation. Menu ideas and recipes are also provided.
Jane works using nutritional and lifestyle approaches to support:
- Optimal energy levels
- Healthy blood sugar balance
- General wellbeing when faced with the pressures of a modern lifestyle
- Tolerance to a broad range of foods
- Weight management
