Tired? Run down…? Could this be why?

Tired? Run down...? Could this be why?

If you have been feeling tired and run down lately then perhaps one of the reasons is because you are B12 deficient. B12 belongs to the group of B vitamins, essential for our neurological, immune, reproductive and thyroid function as well as energy production. Deficiency in B12 is very common and often misdiagnosed because the conventional blood test for B12 uses a range that does not assess for functional B12 deficiency.  B-12 deficiency can take years to become clinically evident, meaning deficiency can set in long before acute symptoms appear. I assess every patient for B 12 deficiency and the majority of … Continue reading

Feeling a little bloated? Could this be why?

Feeling a little bloated? Could this be why?

It appears many of us are suffering from the ‘bloats’ as I like to call it. I’m talking about that most uncomfortable of sensations experienced within our abdomen or gut after eating. Pretty much every patient I treated over the past 13 years suffered bloating to some degree, sadly more often than not. So is bloating a normal symptom when it comes to digestion and if not what does it indicate? Bloating is a phenomena associated most commonly with the western diet. The US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, are apparently feeling the pinch from the bloat more so … Continue reading

What causes Hashimoto’s and other weird Autoimmune diseases

What causes Hashimoto's and other weird Autoimmune diseases

  It seems many of you are suffering from, or at least know someone who has some form of Auto immune (AI) disease. The truth is 1 in 5 people living in the western world suffer from one of the 80 existing AI diseases and this statistic is rising, including a doubling in the rate of Multiple Sclerosis in the last ten years. Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system loses the ability to detect self from non self and consequently launches an attack against it’s own healthy tissues or organs. The hyperactive immune activity triggers a chronic inflammatory response, through … Continue reading

How detox can ovehaul your health

How detox can ovehaul your health

  When searching for answers to our health problems, it’s essential to target the root underlying cause.  Many of us, including the conventional medicine model, tend to focus on treating the visible symptoms, failing to realise that the cause of many health problems actually stems from a poorly functioning digestive system – specifically the GUT or gastrointestinal tract, in addition to eating the wrong foods and being exposed to excess levels of stress. When I work with a patient, I view my approach to their treatment a little like building a house.  First we need to lay the foundations for building new … Continue reading

Why you should give the (regular) cow juice the flick.

Why you should give the (regular) cow juice the flick.

  If there’s one food I get asked about from a health perspective more than any other its cows dairy, (closely followed by gluten and wheat).  So I want to help clear the confusion surrounding this topic because I get the sense there is actually a lot of fear when it comes to deciding whether to avoid the cow juice – milk! Naturally this fear stems from the understanding we have around the links with maintaining healthy calcium levels and preventing conditions like osteoporosis, tooth decay and rickets. This I understand, however consider this, cow’s dairy is not a traditional … Continue reading

  So we’ve barely welcomed in the new year and already its February! For those of you who didn’t know, February has become known as ‘detox month’. Perhaps this is because the holidays are over and we are back to our normal routines. But thanks to the festive season, its likely we have given our livers and digestion a fairly good pummelling! If this sounds like you, then now is the time to give your liver a well deserved holiday – after all I’m pretty sure it has earnt it after all the ‘crap’ we expose our body’s too! Living … Continue reading

A bit about this blog

Welcome to my blog, I’m Sally Joseph, I’m a qualified Clinical Nutritionist, with over 14 yrs professional experience in private practice, researching and studying nutritional medicine approaches to optimal health.   Before studying to become a Nutritionist, I overcame my own personal battle with Chronic Fatigue  / Adrenal Exhaustion Syndrome, Lupus and more recently, Hashimoto’s – an auto immune condition of the thyroid as well as a pituitary adenoma. I’m mentioning all this because I think it helps my readers to know ‘I’ve been there’, when it comes to suffering the debilitating effects of chronic and supposedly ‘incurable’ illnesses, not to … Continue reading
