Your Functional Medicine welcomes you for a consultation in nutrition in Paris
Nutrition with Whole Foods
I advise each person according to their specific needs in nutrition, taking into account their detailed medical history and advise a dietary strategy adapted to the individual, which is based upon further testing when deemed necessary.
I uncover intestinal dysbiosis (an imbalance in gut bacteria) or leaky gut, or candida overgrowth which carries the risk of systemic inflammation and can lead to troubles in cognition and mood, for instance, and over time if undiagnosed leads to weight gain and metabolic disease. The gut microbiome , the colonies of bacteria living in your intestine, are very important for your overall well-being and health. These help break down foods and release the vitamins necessary for proper functioning of the cells and organs in your body. When the gut lining that absorbs your nutrients becomes porous due to too much stress and foods undigested that irritate your immune cells along the intestine, this can lead to inflammation that can become systemic in your body. This gut lining can heal with the right approach to food and some supporting nutraceuticals. Not all prebiotic supplements are going to be equally effective.
My approach is to help motivate individuals to allow their bodies to heal by concentrating on healthy dietary habits based on the proper balance and selection as well as ideal preparation of whole foods.
Certain conditions such as inflammatory states and autoimmune disorders or female gynecological syndromes can be especially responsive to a change in diet over time. I support people with PMS, migraines, endometriosis, Hashimoto`s thyroiditis, Grave's Disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and Crohn's disease and Colitis ulcerosa, for instance.
The approach with reducing an inflammatory diet is especially beneficial in couples struggling with infertility trying to conceive as renourishing through real nutrition can have effects on the quality of the ovocytes and sperm over as short as 3 months time. I specialize in helping support couples after failed attempts at IVF or in preparation to IVF (and in parallel) to improve chances of having a healthy baby. An ovarian cycle is really 3 months, a season, which it optimally takes to prepare well the foundation for a healthy conception. IVF specialists can only impact the volume of the egg retreival but not the quality of the eggs. This is where optimal nutrition is so vital in increasing the chances of creating a healthy offspring.
