A little bit about Louise Blanchfield

Hi, I'm Louise and my interest in nutrition all started when my husband was diagnosed with an inflammatory arthritic condition secondary to his inflammatory bowel disease and was told, 'no-one gets better, everyone gets worse and you could be in a wheelchair by the time you are 60'. At this point he was walking with a stick, unable to play with our young child due to painful and swollen joints. He was only 40. Through the dietary changes I researched and implemented into our diets not only did he stop deteriorating, he got better and both his arthritic condition and inflammatory bowel disease have gone into remission. So, I then got qualified in order to spread the word to as many people as possible about how food and lifestyle can seriously change your health and your life!. And I'm in a unique position being a chartered physiotherapist and nutritional therapist. Physiotherapy is all about restoring normal movement and, for me, nutritional therapy is about helping your body to restore normal system function. So, any nutrition plan is designed to optimise a combination of food changes and exercise to maximise your chances of improving your health.. We are all different, our guts are as unique as our hair and eye colour so, just because one of us is okay to eat something, doesn't mean that we all can. We need to work out what our body needs more of or less of than other people. Assessment with me would look at your symptoms and the food you eat to see what vitamins or minerals you may be lacking in. I then devise a plan specifically for you taking your health issues into consideration but working with you so that your plan suits you, your budget, your lifestyle and any time constraints that you may have.. I will give you your plan, meal suggestions, a 3 day menu, shopping lists and recipes all included in the initial consultation fee to help give you the best chance possible to make the changes that you need to in order to start feeling better. Follow up emails are also included in the fee.. You can also see a whole load of recipes on my website www.thefoodphysio.com in the blog that you can go to now and be making tomorrow! The article section has a number of different pieces ranging from 'how to self treat soft tissue injuries' to 'sports nutrition'.. Nutritional therapy is all about helping people to help themselves, I'm here to help and guide, it's you that does the real work as you make the changes. If you'd like me to help you call now or book via the website.. I look forward to working with you!
