Nutrition

Nutrition - delivered by Daniela Bratkova, Nutritional Therapist

I provide individual nutritional assessments and detailed tailored nutritional programs with supplement recommendations, providing food intolerance testing, hair mineral analysis and other similar services. My approach to nutrition is holistic, with an understanding that our wellness is based on a sensitive balance between different body systems influenced by our external environment.

I focus on paying attention to the digestive system, as this provides a picture of our health and the way we absorb food. This is crucial to understanding the idiosyncrasies of an individual’s biochemistry and the impact it has on their overall wellbeing.

I have been always interested in health, food, cooking and fitness and appreciate how important it is to eat well in order not to just generally feel well but also perform well in recreational and professional sports.

With individual advice in diet, lifestyle and a specific supplement program I can help to improve your sport performance and also help with the following symptoms:
 
  • Depression, anxiety, insomnia, ADHD
  • Indigestion, IBS, Food Allergies and Intolerances, Constipation, Cravings, Problems with Blood Sugar and Weight
  • Eczema, Acne and other skin conditions
  • Menopause, PMS, Infertility, problems with periods
  • Arthritis, Osteoporosis,
  • High Cholesterol and Blood Pressure
  • Autoimmunity Diseases
 

Consultation

Consultations take 1h - 1h 30min which includes detailed nutritional assessment, food diary analysis, followed by detailed explanations, individually tailored nutritional plan with menus, recipes, supplement programs thoroughly checked for interactions with medication taken.

Assessments involve asking questions about your Presenting Symptoms, Medical and Family History, Lifestyle, Medication and Supplements.

Food Diary-Minimum 3 days, recording your food and drink consumed during the day with details such as time of the day and any symptoms experienced after eating certain food and possibly changes in your energy levels during the day.

I require you to complete a Nutritional Assessment Form before consultation, in order to assist me in my analysis. It is important to bring details about your medication and supplements, if taken.

I can provide IgG intolerance testing for 50 food groups with results available within 45mins.

Other more comprehensive intolerance testing by Cambridge Nutritional Sciences can be arranged. I also recommend Hair Mineral Analysis by ARL which is a very helpful indication of how efficiently you transform fuel (food) into energy, how your thyroid and adrenal glands work on a cellular level and can indicate the presence of heavy metals.

BioLab and Genova Diagnostics tests can be arranged (adrenal, thyroid, female, male hormonal profile; homocystein, comprehensive parasitology, Allergy IgE test)

Although all of the testing I provide sounds rather technical please be rest assured that we take your through the process very gently.

Seeing Daniela in 2012 was the best decision I think I made that year!!! I was feeling generally quite exhausted and my running was suffering as a result. Following Daniela’s advice that all stated to change quite quickly and I soon felt more like 'myself' again. Her explanations and knowledge are excellent - offering not just advice on what to eat ( and not to eat!!) , but knowing which tests to do to find the root of why my body had reached the state it had and how to go about healing it with good nutrition and vitamins. I've had my eyes opened to how the food we eat can affect our whole system and I feel Daniela has helped me make changes that will now stay with me for a healthier, fitter - and so happier me!"
