"We are what we digest and absorb" and many of us think we eat well, but in fact there is great room for improvement. Nutrition affects every aspect of our health from brain to cardiovascular and gut health together with the immune system, energy levels and of course, last but not least, our body image.
Being overweight or obese is an increasing problem both in the U.K. and the Western World as a whole. Obesity can, in some cases, lead to type 2 diabetes even in children as young as 9 years of age. At Holistic Medical Clinic we offer a nutritional therapist, as well as Dr Moran who himself has a postgraduate Masters degree (MSc) in Nutritional Medicine. We possess the know-how and experience to investigate any nutritional problem. Before the first consultation you will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire and symptom checklist. The questionnaire will be carefully analysed by our nutritional consultant. We will also, at the time of consultation, discuss any tests that are deemed necessary. After all results are in, a detailed summary and instructions, individually tailored to each patient's nutritional needs, is produced.
Some common conditions treated nutritionally as well as medically at Holistic Me dical Clinic are gut dysbiosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, women's gynaecological problems such as fibroids, endometriosis and PMS, weight management and food intolerances.
Many of these conditions will require blood, saliva or urine tests where we can analyse in great detail the cause of the problem. A range of nutritional products is available at the Clinic as well as diet advice.
