Good nourishment is very important for optimum health. Nutrients essentially maintain life. The macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fats) provide energy and the micronutrients (the vitamins, minerals and trace minerals) are required to release energy.

I started helping people when I was 15 years old starting as a nursing assistant student. In my clinical experience I have been a part of treating many types of patients with very various conditions from acute setting as A & E and intensive care, through ordinary wards to even clinic settings to people going through lifelong conditions. 

After completing 3 years studies at CNM London, I started to understand more why food and lifestyle is so important. By implementing practices, I would like to share with you; I have seen and felt the improvement and benefits of it and I would never go back to my ‘’old ways’’.  

We are biologically different carbon bodies and we all need a different amount of nutrients, that’s true, but we all need them. When our body starts lacking those nutrients, because our body is very clever, we may not notice anything to begin with. We just may feel a little under the weather, fatigued, we may notice that we cannot concentrate that well, our memory is not great, and our patience is long gone. We have all been there. You don’t have to put up with it though, there’s always a solution.
