Personalised support and guidance on nutrition and lifestyle

Welcome!

Hi, 

I am Monique Parker and I am a Nutritional Therapist with a practice in Woking, Surrey. 

Would you like to increase your energy levels? Or loose weight? Or simply experience the healing power of food?

We’re all unique and have different needs, especially when it comes to nutrition and lifestyle. There is not one diet that fixes all for everyone.

That’s why it is so important to find out what foods are right for your body and mind,
and assess your lifestyle.

Nutritional Therapy looks at potential nutritional imbalances and how these may contribute to symptoms and health
concerns.

I have a holistic approach, looking at body, mind, spirit and emotions, but I also work according to the Functional Medicine model which looks at underlying causes of presented symptoms.


I offer tailor-made support and guidance (Skype, Zoom or FaceTime offered too) to meet your personal situation and requirements. 

Interested? I offer a FREE 15 minutes telephone consultation (07974 429043).
This way we can discuss what you would like to achieve and ensure that you will get out of a consultation what you need.

What are your plans for 2021?

This year more than ever, people will be, hopefully, planning to improve their health with a healthier diet, more exercise, sleep improvement and ways to deal with stress. I think if there is one lesson that COVID has taught us in 2020, it is “health is wealth”.

Over the next couple of days social media will will start inundating us with all sorts of crash-diets, detox programmes, miracle supplements etc. to help the New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and be healthier.
And this is where my worries start….

No 'beef' with vegans

‘Should we all go vegan?’ 'Is a vegan diet better for our health and the planet?

                       

A very complicated and broad question, that could be answered from a nutritional, ethical or environmental point of view. I'm sticking to nutrition here, but if you are interested in the ethical or environmental side of this dilemma, please check organisations like the WWF, Soil Association, VIVA! etc. 


I know there will be readers that won't agree with what I have written, but that's ok, we are all free to decide what we eat and what lifestyle we have.
