Caroline Hind Registered Nutritional Therapist mBANT, rCNHC Certified Primal Health Coach Brain - Weight - Metabolism
Hi, I’m Caroline,
I use functional medicine to provide individualised support to people looking for help with cognitive/brain and metabolic health.
While the link between nutrition and body composition (weight) is generally well-recognised, the link between nutrition and blood glucose problems is only recently being acknowledged. My passion is to help people to understand why their weight or their blood glucose might be going awry and develop with them an individualised plan for getting things back on track.
What does this have to do with brain health? The link between nutrition and brain function is definitely taking time to come to the public’s attention. However, the most striking fact I learned as I started taking an interest in this is that a person’s blood glucose levels can be higher than normal many years before any sign of deterioration in brain function is noticed. The more I studied the more I found that the brain – and particularly the ageing brain – can be supported with the right nutrients and lifestyle practices. With functional medicine assessment and testing, I can put together an individualised plan that provides holistic support for this important area of health.
I’m a registered nutritional therapist and a certified primal health coach. I know that making healthful changes is not as easy as simply being given the information. My coaching experience allows me to support you every step of the way so that you are never on your own when adapting to any new dietary, supplement and lifestyle recommendations.
Do get in touch if you’d like to explore how I could work with you.
