Optimal Health Nutritionist/Health Coach
A large proportion of my work is with clients who either want to optimise their health or who want to improve their health based on either a symptom or a marker of health such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, blood glucose etc. You can read about some of these clients who have been willing to give testimonials over at the testimonial pages.
I established myself and Mac-Nutrition to provide a superior nutrition support service. While this may sound ostentatious, it is rather an acknowledgement that there is a large potential margin for improvement in current practice. If you’ve been on my blog yet you’ll no doubt have some idea of what I mean! Many of the current guidelines do not fall in line with the latest research. In some cases they are flat out wrong. In other cases there simply isn’t enough evidence for the recommendations to be made and in my opinion we should ‘first do no harm’.
I spend an inordinate amount of time simply reading this research. I feel very fortunate that I have been able to build a business where this is possible and in fact an integral part of it is working. If I had gone into regular employment after graduating I am sure I would not have the range of knowledge I have today.
I hope it goes without saying but nutrition can massively impact health as long as it is approached in the right way. Sometimes, simply eating ‘healthily’ (whatever that means) is not the right way to go about ‘curing’ a particular ailment. With the right nutrition you can:
- Prolong your life and age slower
- Live into old age with vitality
- Normalise blood lipids (cholesterol/triglycerides) very easily
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduce the likelihood of developing cancer and maybe even halt or reverse its progression!
- Increase fertility and give your unborn child the best start in life
- Reverse Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
- Reverse/Cure Type II diabetes
- Live a long and full life despite Type I diabetes
- The list goes on, but these are things that sprang to mind that I have specific knowledge of and have had some dealings with in one way or another.
This isn’t just all possibilities and theories. They can be done with specific measurable effects!
