The Sports,Health & Fitness Profile
For any sporting individual aspiring to be a better athlete and compete at their best a good diet cannot be ignored. A poor diet can lead to injury, fatigue, stress, lack of wellness and delayed recovery.
Nutrition plays an important role in improving performance and recovery. Competition nutrition strategies can also be pivotal in sports performance at various stages of a season. When injured, nutrient manipulation is critical to the healing process & inflammatory responses can be curtailed through appropriate dietary advice. Indeed the combination of physiotherapy and selective nutrition can optimise rehabilitation from all injuries. We can offer this complementary approach to recovery and help athletes resume training quickly and correctly.
Living a healthy lifestyle today is not always easy. A hectic schedule and lack of finances can often leave our eating patterns open to abuse or neglect. Mark, our Performance Nutritionist and Health Screen Technician will be able to identify specific dietary requirements, food intolerances or allergies and nutrient deficiencies.
Whatever the problem and whatever the individual's needs, the first step is to undertake an appropriate nutritional assessment in order to establish dietary requirements. Consultations will encompass a nutritional assessment and the development of personalised eating programmes that are practical and feasible within the context of your lifestyle whilst addressing your nutritional requirements.
Mark will create a way of eating that works for you, is nutritionally optimal and is long term. There are no quick fixes to good health. Positive steps are an investment in a healthier future and appropriate eating practices need to be well established in order to work.

Natural fertility,-Knowing exactly what to do to increase your chances of conceiving
Well-planned pre-conceptual care can make the difference between a healthy intelligent child, or no child at all.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 couples will experience some fertility problems, and many of these couples will wait over 3 years before conception. Of all the reasons for conception failure, less than ½ are due to definite female structural problems such as tubal failure or lack of ovulation. The remaining number are equally spread between male problems of semen quality and 'unexplained' reasons.
Female fertility is extremely amenable to nutritional/lifestyle intervention, increasing the chances of natural conception very significantly. Even if structural problems necessitates IVF treatment, the chances of success have been shown to be 50% in couples following a holistic approach, as opposed to 20% in normal couples.
Male semen quality can also be improved by ensuring adequate levels of vitamins and minerals which can increase sperm count and quality ten-fold in some cases.
Fertility problems and treatments can be the cause of great stress, both emotional and financial. Consider how much difference might be made by a few months of pre-conceptual care
Having our Natural Fertility and Pre-Conceptual Care Test you will Know exactly what to eat and find out what Vitamins and Minerals your body requires for the best chance of conceiving.

Food intolerance is the one of the leading causes , followed by lack of proper digestion and candida overgrowth. For constipation we have found that it is usually a fault of the vagus nerve,and recommend a course of Colonic Irrigation.
