This Life Nutrition is an Oxfordshire based Nutritional Therapy service improving health, wellbeing, fertility and pregnancy through a scientific approach to diet.
Many common problems we suffer are caused by a lack of balance in our lives and in our diets.
For example, IBS can be caused by the stresses of modern life. Faced with the time pressures that cause that stress, we often end up eating a convenience diet that makes the IBS worse.
Tiredness and fatigue might be caused by too many late nights or a hormonal imbalance or a vicious cycle of poor nutrition.
Some people struggle to conceive and others struggle to cope with the rigours of pregnancy. Again, the pressues of modern life or simply the stress of IVF or possible infertility means we aren't getting the right food into our bodies just when we need it the most.
Food is much more than just the fuel that we burn. The Chemistry of the body is complex and elegant. It relies upon a balance of many nutrients to operate at it's best and when your body Chemistry is operating at its best, you will feel at your best and have the best chance of fighting adversity in whatever form.
Nutritional Therapy provides a science-led approach to achieving that balance and feeling your best in a way that fits in with your life and the life you want to create.
We specialise in helping your chances of successful conception and pregnancy. Talk to us about how nutrition can impact your chances of successfully starting a family.
Don’t get bogged down by irritable bowel problems. Work with This Life Nutrition to flush out your system.
If you’re constantly crabby or eternally exhausted, you could be working too hard, or a thyroid or adrenal issue could be behind the problem. Talk to us about how to get your mojo back.
Our immune system protects us from the dangers of the outside world and it needs the right nutrients to function properly. If you're not being protected as well as you deserve then talk to us about how taking a scientific approach to your diet can help.
Nutrition plays an important role in regulating the menstrual cycle, combatting female-specific health problems and making the menopause less uncomfortable. Make sure you’re giving your body the fuel it needs to keep your cycle running smoothly with one of our personalised diet plans.
It's amazing the cobblers that you hear talked about Nutrition wherever you go. Here's some advice to help you tell it like it is.
So ok, with age, sperm quality does decline (as with all things that are constantly replicated). Just as with women’s eggs, the more times sperm is produced the greater decline in the quality of the DNA it carries.
Methylation is complicated but I’m not, so this is not going to be an in-depth article on methylation. Go somewhere else for one of those...
Caffeine is generally considered a no-no when pregnant, and indeed when trying to get pregnant. If part of your daily routine is to stop off at Starbucks to get a Grande Americano then you’re over the limit.
