Supporting women during perimenopause & menopause
to find hormonal balance, enhanced cognitive function,
long term brain health
and mental wellness
Registered Nutritional Therapist
Hi I'm Elisa, a Registered Nutritionist (mBANT), Nutritional Therapist (CNHCReg) and female health specialist.
I am also a yoga teacher and come from a background in Psychology. I am currently studying an Applied Neuroscience MSc at Kings College London.
All of my study, work and personal experience up to now has focused on managing and ameliorating the impact of stress on women's health (including my own) and optimising hormonal balance, brain health and mental well-being.
I support women online with:
Monthly courses and workshops
An online 28 day Optimal Hormonal Health Programme
Personalised one to one Nutritional Therapy Programmes
I also work with employers:
To address the impact of menopause in the workplace, supporting their female employees with nutrition and lifestyle programmes
To address the impact of stress in the workplace for all employees with nutrition and lifestyle programmes
To support cognitive enhancement and mental well-being in the workplace for all employees with nutrition and lifestyle programmes
We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own to do list
The common denominator in most of the women I support is that they are in their mid 30’s to 50's and are under huge amounts of stress. This so called "sandwich" generation who are constantly juggling work, households, family and social lives.
They are also constantly putting pressure on themselves to be better and achieve more.
Alongside social media, 24/7 communication through mobile phones and endless to-do lists, it’s really hard for them to switch off.
Does this resonate?
Unfortunately, our bodies are not designed to cope with constant stress.
Stress can be present in many different forms for different women - not just psychological stress but other stressors such as years of yo-yo dieting, high levels of anti-nutrients such as sugar and alcohol, unbalanced blood sugar levels, digestive issues, poor sleep, and lifestyle habits to name but a few.
We may be able to cope with it for a while, but on-going continual stress in all its forms can cause havoc with our hormones, brain health and mental well-being.
If you are experiencing brain fog, hot flushes, digestive issues, cold hands and feet, energy slumps, sugar cravings or restless sleep – these are all signs your body is under stress, your brain health is suffering and your hormones are out of balance.
It's time to reassess. I understand that sometimes it's not easy to know where to start, or have the motivation and tools to make these changes, and so if you need further guidance and support, I offer some options depending on your individual needs.
For some of you this may mean starting to learn more about your body and how your brain and hormones interact through my online mini courses. These are a great place to start.
You may be ready to start changing your eating habits, doing the right type of exercise for you, taking time to relax and sleep better as well as cleansing your inner and outer environments. I have designed an online 28 day optimal hormonal health programme to support you do just this.
For others you may need a more in depth investigation of what is at the root cause of your symptoms through functional testing and a personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme. I only see a handful of women for these intensive programmes so that I can fully invest my time and expertise in each client. * Please note there is currently a 2 month waiting list*
I want you to start feeling and looking your best EVERY month. Book a free call with me to see how I can help.
