Tell us about what you do and why?
I am a Nutritional Therapist and run a private practice in London and via skype. I also work in TV and have a book out called The Balance Plan. I specialise in female and hormonal health, stress and digestion – I find that there is a lot of overlap between these areas and due to my personal health journey I am extremely passionate about it. I need to stay abreast of all the latest research and factor time to research into my daily tasks. When I am in clinic, my sole focus is on the client and their needs, I aim to show clients the link between their symptoms and the food they may be eating and lifestyle choices or circumstances. I show them alternatives and inspire clients to make changes as they gain control and bring the body back into balance.
Why are you such a firm believer in the IQS philosophy?
Sugar is in everything these days and I am on a mission to help people stop eating so much sugar. We live in an age of convenience and it really doesn’t help that the media advocates eating foods high in sugar and low in nutrients. Eating sugar in the volumes that we do currently brings with it a host of health ailments including hormonal imbalances. I love IQS, they share the same values as me and it’s a wonderful learning tool. Quit sugar, know why you are doing it and as a bonus – learn to cook these delicious meals for the family!
The IQS Team are coming for dinner. What are you cooking us?
Brilliant, please come in… On the menu this evening is a butternut, spinach and pine nut salad, followed by a citrus roast duck with greens and sweet potato. For dessert, a mixed berry vegan ‘cheesecake’ – yum!
