For clients wanting to improve any aspect of their health, combining clinical nutrition with NLP, Time Line Therapy™ techniques and Hypnotheray will assist you to produce excellent results.
Clinical nutrition is aimed at dealing with the underlying issues affecting the lymphatic, immune, respiratory and digestive systems, including coeliac, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, allergies, wheat and gluten intolerance, weight problems, other related health conditions and emotional issues. Once the underlying issues are addressed, the focus is on educating you in healthy eating, a positive attitude towards food and behaviours that are supportive of optimal health and longevity. By treating the physical body, emotional distress improves and vice versa, by resolving emotional issues, physical ailments improve.
Inflammatory messages in the body can be produced as a result of what happens in the mind (example stress) or as a result of physical disease (immune cells produce inflammatory messages that act on the nervous system). A classic example of this seen with gut problems, specifically IBS where there is close relationship seen between IBS and anxiety/depression. Once the gut is repaired the anxiety and/or depression are also dramatically improved. As an adjunct to her treatment Erica uses advanced technology and tools, including cellular health measurements to help with her investigations.
