REGISTERED NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST WORKING WITH COUPLES & INDIVIDUALS TRYING TO CONCEIVE, PREGNANT WOMEN, POST BIRTH RECOVERY, CHILDREN, ADULTS AND FAMILIES IN BUCKS/BERKSHIRE AREAS
Hi, I’m Janet Padfield, a fully qualified and registered Nutritional Therapist. Apples to Zinc was founded in 2014 and since its creation I’ve been supporting the health of hundreds of people.
I have a special interest in fertility and, whilst the charity closed down earlier this year, feel privileged that I was a fully trained and active Foresight Preconception Practitioner. I do still use all my training from Foresight and will continue to apply these methods.
I have experience and a breath of knowledge with pre-conception health, pregnancy nutrition, post birth recovery and weight loss, weaning, fussy eating, and family nutrition. I do also support adults with general health concerns
Nutritional Therapy uses the science of nutrition to support health issues and promote optimal health. Nutritional Therapists understand that, as individuals, no one plan will work for everyone. They assess the general health, medical history and dietary habits of each individual to evaluate any potential imbalances within the body. Using their understanding of these imbalances and the health concerns present, they can then provide tailored lifestyle and nutrition programmes to support a broad spectrum of symptoms and inspire people to take control of their health and wellbeing
Nutritional therapists are:
My approach to nutritional therapy is realistic, simple and supportive. I focus on adding or replacing foods in the diet rather than just taking them out. I take account of a client’s budget, time pressures and food preferences to provide a tailored programme to support the client’s health concerns.
I am very passionate about food and how it can support health but understand that it is, in many cases, not a replacement for medical professionals and do not claim to be able to “treat”, “prevent” or “cure”. Where possible I aim to work with GP recommendations and with other alternative therapies to help you to achieve control over yours and your family’s health
I am very happy to answer any questions about nutrition and to discuss whether sessions would be helpful to you or your child.
