Functional Nutrition Consultations

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. It is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their wellbeing.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all‘ approach. I never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any clients with ‘red flag‘ signs or symptoms to their medical professional.

I will frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare practitioners involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

It is important to remember that Nutritional Therapy is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any condition, and that results vary between clients afflicted by the same symptoms or diagnosis.

 

Lifestyle Medicine MOT

If you’d like to have a one-off consultation and do not present any chronic conditions at this stage, the MOT service is the solution for you.

A 1 hour consultation where we gather dietary and lifestyle information, discuss the long-term goals and put together a plan with simple milestones and actionable points, that serves you as a kickstart to your healthier future. A great gift for loved ones in need of some motivation for change, or a perfect self-care strategy if you are ready to make changes but don’t know where to start.

This service has a fixed price of £85, and includes a 10% discount on Nutritional Therapy packages if you book within 12 months of MOT appointment.

This is what some of my clients have to say…

C.C. – Bristol: “Estef approached my case in an extremely scientific yet easy to understand manner. Her knowledge and guidance have turned my life around.”

B.G. – Spain: “I couldn’t recommend Estef highly enough. She listens and tailors a nutrition plan that fits within your lifestyle and it’s easy to follow. The amount of great advice I received from her has proved incredibly valuable. Even if you feel you have healthy habits, I would still recommend having a consultation with a professional like Estef who is knowledgeable and can help you understand what works best for your body and offer fantastic advice on how to get the most out of food.”

M.A. – Spain: “I feel great! Highly recommended!”

K.M. – Cardiff: “Estef has done wonders for me. Such positive energy and bags of encouragement. Would recommend to everybody.”

L.S. – Spain: “I suffered from gut issues for most of my life, which led to multiple operations and constant exhaustion and low mood. Since following Estef’s advice my gut feels like new. I have a renewed feeling of wellbeing, I am energetic, sleep better and move more. Judging by my 40s, I would have never thought it was possible to feel this great in my 70s”

C.F. – Cardiff: “After making the change of becoming a vegetarian earlier this year, it was the start of my journey to improved health; however, I was still experiencing fatigue, and drops in energy throughout the day which affected my ability to focus, in work and in day-to-day tasks. I would reach for the nearest sugary snack to give me a boost before feeling awful again shortly after.

I was recommended Estef through a friend and I couldn’t be happier I decided to use her services. With her knowledge of nutrition being second to none, and her professional approach, Estef awoke me to realisations I was never aware of until this process. Through each stage – from the initial conversations, through to the consultation, and the protocol, Estef was very thorough and always on hand if I needed some advice and support.

During the consultation Estef asked questions relating to each internal system – nervous, immune, endocrine, gastrointestinal, reproductive and liver. I left feeling like I’d received therapy and on a massive high!

Upon receiving my nutritional protocol less than one week following the consultation, I was enlightened to find Estef had pieced together the puzzle and made connections relating to medications, lifestyle and diet that I would never have figured out myself. The protocol was in-depth, clear and easy to follow.

Usually, I curl up into a ball at the thought of following a ‘diet’ plan; however, Estef’s recommended meal plan and detox program was not only nutritious, it was a joy and especially tailored to my needs and lifestyle. The meals were delicious and my energy levels and overall moods have improved greatly. Not only that, but my family have enjoyed sharing some of the meals with me!

I’m looking forward to committing to running the personalised plan again this month and having a follow-up consultation.

If you know you want to improve your health and ailments but don’t know where to start, speak to Estef at Become Nutrition. You’ll never look back!”
