Laila LewisBSc (Hons), DipCNM, mBANT
Laila believes that everyone has the potential to achieve optimum health through balancing themselves physiologically, psychologically and emotionally.
After a lifelong interest in natural health and the belief that nutrition is the foundation of well-being, Laila finally bought balance to her own life by leaving a stressful advertising career to undertake 3 years naturopathic nutrition study at The College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM).
In addition to running her practice, Laila supervises final year student clinics at CNM and is a nutritional advisor in a busy health food store. This keeps her up to date with what natural health products are available so she can pass this knowledge on to her clients.
There are many conditions recognised as requiring unique nutritional recommendations and Laila's training included the management of the nutritional needs of individuals with, among other issues, stress, emotional and psychological imbalance, low energy, digestive disorders, hormonal issues, poor skin condition, immunity problems and weight management needs. Having overcome fertility problems herself, Laila's special interest lies in pre/post-conception care, fertility, weaning and baby and toddler health.
Laila believes no one approach fits all and uses careful assessment to determine the unique needs of those who seek her nutritional guidance. She is committed to addressing the root cause of health problems rather than simply focussing on symptoms and where possible, giving recommendations founded on evidence-based research. Laila partners with her clients and is happy to liaise with their primary care physician to ensure continuity of care.
Understanding that relationships with food can be complex, Laila always aims to avoid restrictive diets and instead uses her nutritional expertise and understanding of behaviour, acquired from her psychology degree, to create easy to follow, tailor-made nutritional programmes. Her empathetic and supportive nature will then empower you to make the changes necessary for you to achieve optimal health. An individual programme will primarily include dietary and lifestyle advice with supplementation and diagnostic procedures where appropriate.
Whether you have a particular issue you would like to discuss, are confused about what foods are healthy for you or are simply looking to increase vitality, Laila would love to talk to you.
