Correcting mineral deficiencies

Many people suffer due to mineral deficiencies, and are unaware of this until they have specific health conditions and start to research the causes. Supplementing our diet with natural plant derived sources of minerals can improve our wellbeing (as opposed to metallic minerals which are derived from ground up rocks).

Have you been diagnosed with a food intolerance?
Adhering to an exclusion diet?

As I know from personal experience, avoiding the offending foods can be tricky, and so can following any nutrition programme without expert guidance. In view of this, it occurred to me that I should be offering people a nutrition support service, particularly for those of you have recently embarked upon a nutrition programme (for example, a gluten-free diet). Having had experience with having to deal with hundreds of food intolerance sufferers, I know many of the pitfalls; I am also aware of the common symptoms that people often suffer from as a result of adjustments by the body in response to the new diet.

It’s not unusual, for instance, for the original symptoms caused by the intolerance, may get initially worse when someone omits the offending food or foods from their diet. Naturally, some people become a little anxious when this happens, and need reassurance and guidance.

What you receive when you sign-up for nutritional support:

  • An initial brief appraisal of your current situation sent to you via your email address
  • Personal guidance from me via emails during your nutrition programme. This includes advice on foods to avoid and those you can have; guidance in relation to health issues, such as any symptoms that you may experience on an exclusion diet, etc.
  • If you require me to provide you with nutritional support for the first few weeks or months of your dietary programme, then it’s very easy to sign up for this service, just email me by clicking here.
