From pediatrics to geriatrics: changing nutrition needs for the changing times of our lives

Lisa has a keen interest in how our nutrition needs change over our life cycle from young to older, and how optimal nutrition can underwrite optimal health as it relates to children, men’s, and women’s health.

She specializes in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hormonal balance and digestion. Digestion is of paramount importance for even the healthiest diet is going to be of limited benefit if digestion and absorption capacities are impaired.

She also supports clients with general health concerns, and individual’s and teams (and horses) requiring advice on sports nutrition on how to optimize their performance.  As an avid horse rider (dressage) she has a personal interest in sports nutrition and has experienced how nutrition (human and equine) can enhance performance.

Lisa is passionate about world health and nutrition. She studied public health nutrition at Johns Hopkins University (Bloomberg School of Public Health) and worked in public health for a number of years, specifically in relation to the nutrition and health needs of women, infants and children in developing countries.

After taking a break from professional life to raise her daughter, Lisa turned her attention from public health to clinical nutrition, and qualified as a nutrition therapist at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (UK). She particularly enjoys supporting people in the 1:1 setting.

She is fascinated and amazed by the human body: how it works, its adaptive capacity, its natural tendency to maintain homeostasis and health, and how it maladapts over time when it is not given the nutrients it needs. It is truly awe inspiring to realize that the human body is a dynamic environment: the atoms, molecules and cells of the body continually move and change, even though the tissues, organs, and external appearance remain relatively constant.

It is amazing to know that ur skin is replaced in its entirety approximately every 7 years, ur oldest red blood cell is 120 days old, and the entire lining of ur digestive tract is renewed every 3 days, with colonic cells every 7 days. Therein lies the power of nutrition: by giving cells the nutrients they need to function optimally, we can hope to have healthy cells, healthy organs, healthy systems, and a healthy bod: this is one of the keys to how nutrition can help build and maintain a healthy bod ! and …..these nutrients are found in food !!!

The unravelling of the genome and the emerging field of nutrigenomics is particularly exciting as it applies to nutrition therapy, as researchers have found that certain genetic variations mean that individuals have requirements higher than the RDA (recommended daily allowances) for  key nutrients, among the most studied being the MTHFR gene variation and the increased need for folic acid. Testing for homocysteine has been shown to be a good functional indicator of folic status in the body.

It is the knowledge of how the body functions (its physiology and biochemistry) that Lisa attempts to convey in a readily understandable every day language as she firmly believes for dietary and lifestyle recommendations to be meaningful and therefore implemented a client may benefit from gaining an awareness of how their body’s work, and the effect diet and lifestyle has.  Of course she skips that part if she feels you don’t really want to know as she was recently told by a top international athlete: ‘ I don’t have to know why, just tell me what to eat, what not to eat, and when and  what supplements to take…..’ ok…whatever….as you like….just so you know, behind those seemingly simple, practical and realistic suggestions lies a body of knowledge and evidence…..

So, watch this space for current health and nutrition research and information or better yet, book a consultation to see how current knowledge potentially affects you and can be integrated into your life.

Find out how nutrition can help address your health concerns and goals.

Be inspired to take charge of your bod and ur health through nutrition !
