The Building Blocks for a Healthy Diet (and Lifestyle)

Sat 26 Jan | 1:30 to 2:30pm
FREE

Join Susie Willsher for this free workshop to help you create a healthy, sustainable diet and lifestyle.

Susie will bring some clarity amongst all the mixed media messages of what the basics of a healthy diet really look like. She will talk about the essential elements of a balanced diet. She will look the different types of foods to include and why. And the foods that are best to limit and why. And she will address some elements of our lifestyle that can also affect how we feel and our food choices. This will be followed by a question and answer session for you to bring your burning nutrition questions for Susie to answer.

Susie is a Registered Nutritional Therapist with over 10 years of clinical experience. She studied for four years full-time at the University of Westminster. She first studied chemistry and biology followed by a three year science degree in Nutritional Therapy. Susie graduated in 2008 with a BSc(Hons) in Nutritional Therapy.

Susie is a BANT registered practitioner

BANT-member Registered Nutritional Therapists are regulated by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Specialist areas IBS and other gastrointestinal disorders, chronic disease management, health optimisation, food sensitivities, autoimmune conditions, weight loss, pre and post pregnancy health and children’s health.

I have always had an an interest in food and cooking and when I was diagnosed with 'IBS' in my 20s my interest in food to took me to look at food as medicine. After improving my own condition through dietary changes I went on to get my BSc (Honours) in Nutritional Therapy from the University of Westminster. I have 10 years experience as Registered Nutritional Therapy practitioner, and have seen first-hand how diet and lifestyle changes can make such a positive difference to our health and wellbeing. I am also on the BBC’s panel of nutritionists and have appeared on numerous radio shows.

Now more than ever it is clear that one size does not fit all when it comes to our health, so it’s important to understand your individual balance. The body is amazingly complex and no one part of it works alone, so I aim to bring together my knowledge of nutrition, supplements and functional testing with a detailed understanding of how food works with the body to improve your health. I work using the Functional Medicine model and keep up to date with current research in health and nutrition. I aim to concentrate primarily on diet but I also have a very extensive knowledge of nutritional products and supplements to help support my patients.

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Registered Nutritional Therapists use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health. Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.

Registered Nutritional Therapists consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Registered Nutritional Therapists never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
