As part of my marketing strategy to promote my proofreading, editing & copywriting business, I spend some of my time networking. As a result, I have met some wonderful people working in all sorts of businesses. With my innate interest in “all things business” I invited Janie Perry, a nutritional therapist from Relax to Revive, to tell me her business story. Here’s how we did it…
Or should I say “Proofreader experiences Nutritional Therapy”? This is my view on what happened in Janie Perry’s clinic. Janie is duty-bound to provide a confidential service, but I am free to share what was a truly enriching experience.
Firstly, what is a nutritional therapist?
The nutritional therapist takes you through a comprehensive health and nutritional assessment to explore present health issues, eating habits, medical history and digestion. Using a “naturopathic approach”, she explores what is best for you, your health and your lifestyle in order to optimise your total wellbeing through the most natural source of essential nutrients – food.
Why did I go?
You could say I have been “through the wringer” in recent weeks: two unrelated hospital stints by two members of my immediate family… the rehoming of the family cat… unusually high workload on several fronts. All of these factors, together with the rolls and punches of normal family life, had taken their toll. I was having headaches, trouble sleeping and I was putting on weight.
By the time I arrived at Janie’s door, I was pretty exhausted, stressed and I had definitely lost my “va, va, vroom”.
Janie asked me a variety of health and medical questions. As well as my responses, Janie took “clues” from my irises (iridology) and my tongue (the only visible muscle), to build up a picture of how my body was coping with the demands of just “being Lindsay”.
The 1½ hour consultation simply flew by. Janie has a charming, peaceful nature; I felt I could tell her absolutely anything – and I did. It was a joy just to talk about how I felt literally from the inside out!
What was the nutritional advice?
Janie provided me with nutritional advice to plug some food group gaps, but also to put the energy back. Her recommendations included: night-time and other herbal teas; increased fluids (water); increased essential fatty acids (fish, nuts): increased quality protein (lentils, beans); adding a variety of wholegrain (rice, quinoa) and Ultra Muscleze® supplement.
Janie was gentle with me; she only asked me to make one change per week, on the basis that even small changes in the diet can have a positive impact on health. I introduced two or three of these recommendations immediately and – yes – I’ve got my va, va, vroom back!
