DOES NUTRITION MATTER?
Simple changes to your diet along with certain supplements can make a big difference to your health and improve the quality of life. If you have any niggling concern that hasnt been resolved/cured using medications you might want to consider a new approach.
I have helped many (who were willing to listen and follow) to tackle various health concerns using nutrition and the correct supplements. Some of you had digestive issues (bloating, acid reflux, malabsorption, IBS, Colitis etc), others dealing with skin issues, migraines, loss of memory, inability to focus, repeated UTIs, fatique, sciatica, shoulder pain and other back and hip issues and many many more..
We currently facing the almighty COVID -19 Virus and I am happy to guide you as to how to boost your immune cells so they can fight a viral attack.
Even though I studied Nutrition as part of the Level 3 exercise referral course I have spent the last 4.5 years self studying nutrition in depth and the effect it has on our physiology. I have learned that correct nutrition can help you to keep healthy, to avoid disease and to improve health once you face a condition or a disease.
I spend minimum 2 hours a day listening to lectures, reading articles, books, studies etc. in the last few months way before our "friend" Corona arrived I have studied in depth about viruses: how they work, how they move, how they multiply, what are they feeding on, what help them to thrive, what inhibit their replication etc. I have taken - what I call - Anti Viral Strategy and I have in my house every possible supplement that can kill, suppress, paralise, strips it off its protective shell and inhibit viruses and I am most definitely making sure I will not eat what viruses love and thrive on!!!!!!!!
LETS TALK ABOUT FOOD.....
If you suffer from any symptoms, conditions or illness and you really want to improve your health then you are welcome to arrange an online private session with me. This session will only suit anyone who wishes to improve their health and willing to make an effort towards it. You will be amazed to realise how much food that you love harms you. Once you know it harms you, you will not want to eat this food again ..... unlike other practitioners that send you to do very expensive tests (privately) that cost hundreds of pounds I use my in depth knowledge of analysing your symptoms and your diet and put a plan in place for you to follow. As you progress with the programme you can improve your health further but my goal is to reduce inflammation (without medications) and to stop the pain and discomfort for you.
If you are happy to take medications without asking questions and accept your symptoms and conditions as a natural progression of life then there is no point in us working together. I love working with people who are ready to make changes and take responsibility and control for their own health issues.
30 years of Crohn's disease
"I have suffered with crohn's disease for nearly 30 years and in the last few years it got a lot worse to the point that I have to visit the loo 5 times in one hour.... this is a major disruption to my life whether at work or social life. It is embarrassing.
I met Naama for my back pain and in our assessment session she was much less interested in my back and more about my diet and any other health issues so the crohn's disease was mentioned.
Naama suggested to me some diet changes and certain supplements and said that will help my crohn's disease and as a result will reduce systemic inflammation and my back pain will be reduced and only then we can start exercise gently. I was amazed how within a week I have felt so much better with my tummy and I even went with my family and grand children to a day out and didnt need the loo so often which gave me some freedom. I am now continuing with these diet guidelines and even my mood has improved and a lot more. It was amazing to realise how food I loved dearly harmed me so much and no doctor ever thought to check it out or suggest changes. Naama's knowledge is vast and I strongly recommend you give her a chance to help you. "
Years of IBS with no improvement
"As a long-term sufferer of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, finding good advice on how to combat my symptoms (bloating, indigestion, flatulence etc.) is difficult to come by. After years of trial and error with numerous home remedies and the little advice I could get from “professionals”, I made little to no progress, especially with the bloating. At this point I thought that there was no way to improve my digestive health. I was then introduced to Naama – and thanks to her within weeks I noticed a vast improvement physically and mentally.
Visibly I am less bloated, and I feel so much lighter. As a bonus to following Naama’s advice I have more energy throughout the day, no longer feeling as sluggish as I used to. This change has also had a positive effect on my general mood. This change has also been noted by friends and family
After one or two days of me explaining to Naama my, relatively healthy, diet she quickly identified what the potential issues were and showed me what I needed to do to improve. In this time, she sent me a brief diet plan (with some recipes) as well as the supplements I needed. Speaking to Naama has increased my dietary knowledge tenfold. With her it is not just about telling you what to do and sending you on your way, she carefully explains how and why its beneficial in an easy and understandable way.
I cannot thank Naama enough for her help. I would recommend anyone that is having digestive issues to seek her advice, the benefits are invaluable".
From mobility scooter to full mobility and Pilates on a mat....
"I cannot believe that it is now over two years since I was forced to use a mobility scooter, to cover any distance. I had been diagnosed with a loss of cartilage in both knee joints, resulting in bone on bone connection. It was so painful and I found that my whole life changed. I just could not “do” the shops anymore and was becoming more reliant on others.
I underwent surgery on my right knee at St. Guy’s hospital, and after 6 months, of painful exercise and restricted mobility, found that I could actually walk without a stick. The operation had been successful and, although my new knee felt a bit strange and was not quite able to flex fully, I was now able to get around, as long as I did not overdo it. My consultant advised me to wait about six months and then have the left knee joint replaced as well. The problem was that my left leg now was hurting me considerably more.
This was a dilemma for me. Did I want to go through all of that again? Was it worth the risk of possible infection? I am not getting any younger, should I have it done now while I am healthy and active, or wait. All operations carry a risk after all and not all are successful. I had thought a lot about having the first one done and nearly cancelled at last minute.
I decided to put it off for as long as I could and in attempt to get fit. I joined a Pilates class with Naama as the tutor. From that moment on, my life changed. Naama does remedial pilates and has the amazing ability to, not only remember people’s names, but also their individual needs. I booked a one to one session with her, when she discussed my knee problems in detail. She was holistic in her approach and from that moment on, has supported me with dietary advice, including essential vitamins. I have found her classes to be fun and informative, but most important for me, I have been building the muscles around both my knees and have become so much more agile. Naama has concentrated on balance as well as stretch exercises. I can now fully bend both knees, walk a fair distance without pain or limping, dance (within reason) kneel and even climb the loft ladder. I do need to continue exercises on a regular basis or I can feel pain, but I find that I enjoy my pilates sessions so much that I would not want to give them up. I could not praise Naama enough for the help and encouragement that she has given to me"
"I have attended Naama's fabulous Pilates classes for the past four years. Knowing how knowledgeable and passionate she is about natural health and the body, I asked if she had any suggestions regarding the pain I was experiencing down the back of my leg. She thought it was probably sciatica and advised some simple dietary changes, and certain supplements.
Four weeks later, I am delighted that the pain has almost gone. I no longer feel the need to approach a chiropractor/osteopath as I was going to before speaking to Naama.
As a bonus, the dietary changes have relieved some stomach discomfort I had been experiencing, and I do feel better generally.
Naama is a wonderful fount of knowledge of health in general, and of what we can do ourselves to help our bodies function properly."
Severe Digestive Issues
"I am one of the lucky people where Naama came into my life when my stomach issues were unbearable. I would say I had chronic gastrointestinal symptoms (bloating, reflux, flatulence, constipation, SIBO, cramps, pain, yeast infection, fatigue, gluten and dairy intolerance, heartburn, rashes on my body, IBS and indigestion) and Naama has helped my stomach get much stronger and I don't have anywhere near the issues I previously had - all thanks to her. Nutritionalists had tried and not been able to solve my problems.
She cares and has become so knowledgable about health I believe she's in the wrong profession. If I had carried on seeing 'professionals' I would be out of pocket by many thousands of pounds. I had already spent well over two thousand on tests, pills and consultations and I was still no better. I was frustrated going from one expert to another. It wasn't until after Pilates that Naama chatted to me about what I could do to help myself.
She sent me videos to watch (and retain the knowledge) and suggested the pills etc I should be taking.
I would say now that I am nearly healed and it is unquestionably all down to Naama's wisdom. She has an insatiable appetite for learning everything about alternative ways to keep ourselves healthy and passes all of her knowledge onto anyone who is open to these solutions and wants a healthier happier life.
I will be eternally grateful to her and all the time and effort she's put into my welfare".
Recovering from pneumonia & sepsis
"I work as an accountant, in what I consider to be a reasonably stressful job. In December 2018, I had a cough / cold that I struggled to shake off over a period of some weeks, & this suddenly developed into pneumonia & sepsis, requiring an ambulance & a short inpatient stay in hospital.
While the medical staff were helpful in diagnosing & treating my illness, the source / cause remains a mystery. Other than a very short course of anti-biotics, the NHS have not recommended any other medicines or other ongoing treatment.
Via my wife Mary, Naama has recommended a range of supplements (minerals & vitamins & probiotics) and over the past 15 months my health has very much improved.
To better understand any underlying health issues, Naama recommended a Hair Mineral Analysis Test, & this revealed a few surprises, most notably an unexpected very high level of Arsenic in my system.
None of my hospital or blood tests revealed this. On Naama’s recommendation, I have taken high doses of Vitamin C as well as Selenium, & a subsequent test showed a significant and very welcome reduction in the level of Arsenic.
I am quite open minded as to the combination of NHS & alternative treatments that work best for me. I am not on (nor have I been offered) any prescribed medication, but having worked with Naama’s advice, & from personal experience, I am very happy to recommend her."
Sciatic and Chronic Back Pain
"I don't know how I should thank Naama. I had a Disc compression L5 L6 with Sciatica. I have been suffering, from 2014. I used to take medications and do some exercises. I had even tried a chiropractor but it didn't reduce the pain. The pain had become part of me. I started to attend Belly dance classes with Naama and told her about my back problem. She suggested a simple dietary changes in the foods and supplements and I followed her advice. It has been almost a month, I have not had any Scatic pain- nothing at all. Absolutely nothing. I feel much better in general. .Trust me, she literally has changed my life. Very simple and effective change that made a big improvement to my life.
I honestly thank Naama for being really caring person. I was very inspired, when I first met her in her belly dance class. The dedication, discipline, energy, vibes and motivation, she creates is just amazing. Even though I live far away from Orpington I try my best to join the class as I love it so much. Thank you very much Naama, for really helping me. Nothing had helped me before. But, now I really feel light, my body too and absolutely no pain no pain not even a small discomfort . Thank you so so much".
