Nutriology - Lisa Smith
I am an integral member of a team of specialists, who successfully manage to integrate the medical and complementary professions together and work holistically to improve health and disease states.
Having spent many years working in the corporate market, I understand the impact that stress, both emotional and physiological, can have upon health and wellbeing, especially upon the gastrointestinal, immune and hormonal systems.
The dietary challenges that many people face on a daily basis can also, at times, seem to make 'eating healthily' a challenge and so my emphasis is not placed upon strict, faddy diets, nor the use of lots of supplements, but aims to help the body obtain the nutrients it needs to work properly in the world we live in a busy, demanding and at times, stressful place, and in doing so helps in the management of stress and overcome the barriers to health and wellbeing.
Within my private practice i actively work with companies to improve the health and performance of corporate employees by optimising nutrition and lifestyle and also works closely with a Cognitive Neuroscientist, looking at how diet and lifestyle can influence the brain, moods and behaviour- with an emphasis upon 'Women in Business'
I am also a Senior lecturer with The College of Naturopathic Medicine, one of the UK's largest and well-known natural medicine training providers and regularly contribute articles and 'expert opinions' for publication.
