CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...

Anaemia

This is a decrease in the normal number of red blood cells. Red blood cells contain haemoglobin which contains iron and is responsible for carrying oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues and organs; it then carries carbon dioxide from the body tissues back to the lungs for excretion. Every cell in the body needs oxygen to survive and must off-load toxic carbon dioxide, so a lack of haemoglobin can lead to a wide range of clinical consequences. Anyone can suffer from anaemia and it is quite common in menstruating women due to the monthly loss of blood.

Signs and symptoms include: tiredness and fatigue, dizziness, fainting, low blood pressure, heart palpitations, rapid heart rate, heart attack, pale skin, coldness and/or yellowing of the skin, shortness of breath, muscular weakness and hair loss.

Your nutritional therapist can assess your current eating routine and make any necessary changes in order to address any deficiencies that could be leading to your anaemia.

Before I saw my therapist I was concerned that I would hear lots of "don't eat this etc". I was relieved that the attitude to change was very positive and easy to cope with. The changes I've made have had benefits already and I now feel much more confident about food choices. I would highly recommend the service.
