My Journey to Nutritional Therapy

I grew up in a family where food was used as celebration, ceremony, and reward, then spent the 90s working in advertising in Soho, where food was excessive and ever present. I had fun and indulged without thought of the consequences. Dancing in clubs was my main form of exercise!

On the millennium Wallace and Gromit brought me to Bristol and while working as an animation puppet maker I rediscovered the outdoor world and all the adventures it had to offer. I wanted my body to give me the necessary energy to enjoy it.

 

I hiked long distance trails walking with all my supplies on my back. My first long distance bike ride was the Outer Hebrides the second, a year peddling from Alaska to Ushuaia, the tip of South America.

My last solo walk at 48 years old, The Teararoa Trail through New Zealand, led to my body starting to complain. Sharp pains followed by X-rays and physiotherapy on my toes showed the wear and tear signs of osteoarthritis.

 

No conventional treatment made any difference, I was not prepared for this to worsen or ruin the activities that I enjoy.

I worked with a nutritionist to make changes, starting with an anti-inflammatory diet I realised how much more I could have got from previous activity if I had had an awareness of nutrition.

 

This is what I want to share with others.
