Symptoms can be ‘nagging’ subtle problems that have been going on for so long that you have got used to them - tiredness, poor concentration, anxiety, bloating, IBS, constipation, irritability, skin issues or finding it hard to lose weight.
Symptoms are a way for your body to tell you that it is out of balance and there is always a reason or root cause, whether it be a toxin, stress, a virus, emotional stress, a lack of nutrients, and so on. By addressing these underlying contributing factors, the body can be helped back into balance or homeostasis.
At Think Nutrition, for over 20 years, we have helped thousands of people with their symptoms by looking at the root causes that may be contributing to them. As a functional Nutritionist, Hilary can help to distinguish these factors and directly help to rebalance, boost, detoxify and strengthen your body. By working with the root causes, she is helping to lay the foundations for optimum nutrition. Optimum Nutrition is where all your body systems are working together in a balanced way. When this is achieved, your symptoms can start to subside and you are left feeling healthier, revitalised, clear headed.
If the root causes of symptoms are not addressed, the symptoms can continue to persist and may even worsen. Dry skin may become eczema, tension may turn into frequent headaches, tiredness into fatigue, irritability to anxiety, poor sleep to insomnia, bloating and wind may continue but with more pain, constipation or diarrhoea leading to IBS, colitis and food intolerances. The next stage is a chronic problem or disease state, such as painful IBS or IBD (Irritable Bowel Disorder), exhaustion, allergies, depression, panic attacks, migraines and so on.
