Optimum nutrition is fundamental for good physical and mental health. Most of us recognise that eating the wrong foods may lead to ill health. By the same token eating the right foods can support bodily and brain functions to maintain health, vitalty and energy levels.
I work using nutritional and lifestyle approaches to facilitate:
- Immune system health by looking into the why’s and triggers behind autoimmune disease and manage them. You can never fully cure yourself from an AID but instead trying to keep the body in long term remission.
- Brain and neurological wellness – there is a bidirectional communication between the body/gut and the brain. The more you incorporate the brain and nervous system when looking at physical pain and symptoms, the better results you get. Neuroinflammation is a common contributor to chronic conditions and it’s imperative to identify and manage.
- Hormonal (endocrine) health – an umbrella phrase that incorporates several bodily functions such as the thyroid, adrenals (fight and flight response to stress), HPA axis, sex hormones during menstrual cycle, pregnancy and pre/post menopause.
- Healthy looking skin, hair and nails.
- Maintain ideal weight and getting rid of inflammatory upper body fat.
- Fertility in women and men.
- Gastrointestinal and digestive wellness.
- Promote good energy levels throughout the day. Being able to wake up without coffee, avoid energy dips in the afternoon, feeling tired after meals. This is very common after having had children, working in stressful environments, having a stressful job or simply not just managing your diet and blood sugar.
- Tolerance to a broad range of foods, food groups and environmental/airborne agents.
- Encourage sound and restful sleep.
- Promote feelings of wellbeing and adapt to the pressures of a modern lifestyle. Managing physical, psycological and emotional happiness.
- Promote a slower and healthier ageing process.
Support normal bodily functions (brain and nervous system, cardiovascular and circulatory system, immune system, respiratory system, endocrine system, musculoskeletal system, reproductive system, urinary system)
I almost always order a thorough hospital blood test as part of the clinical work up. It’s impossible to guess deficiencies, to monitor a particular condition or evaluate what’s properly happening in the body unless you test and retest. In addition to these Swedish hospital lab tests I also have an array of private labs from several different countries and they offer the most advanced diagnostic services available on the market. I am the only one in Sweden to offer tests by Cyrex labs. This is a lab that focus on autoimmune disease, gluten sensitivity, celiac disease and chronic illness.
