WHAT IS A NUTRITIONAL & IRIDOLOGY CONSULTATION
A Nutritional & Iridology Consultation is focused on improving health through nutritional means with a focus on living food nutrition. Living food nutrition is food that has the highest amount of nutrients based on quality, locality and measure of processing it has undergone and finally the energy it takes to grow and acquire the food.
A consultation takes 1.5 hours. During which a full case history is taken with emphasis on examining the clients current eating patterns, any test results from their GP, including medication if any and finally their lifestyle & exercise habits. An iris picture is also taken as it allows a person’s constitutional strengths and weaknesses to be pinpointed. This information is used as a foundation to make lifestyle and dietary changes. Short term supplementation is also considered where there are indications of deficiency.
A detailed nutritional report is provided within a few days of the consultation including some recipes to support recommended changes by your nutritionist. A lot can be achieved through diet alone. Support is also provided for up to 4 wks following consult via email & phone.
"I booked an appointment with Siobhán in the hope that I would be able to find “a cure” for my poor energy levels and my acne covered skin. Having taken medication for my acne for more than ten years in the past. My skin is now better than I can ever remember I now have a healthy relationship with food and healthy eating and value the importance of whole, real, organic, Irish produce." M.Slattery 2018
Note from Siobhán Shinnors on Nutrition,
I have a keen interest and experience in gut health and the impact it has on mental health. I have been exploring & studying nutrition for over 25years.
I was first introduced to wild foods and foraging in London of all places and by an Iranian woman that cured herself of cancer. It was around this time I began a long journey of exploring the power of raw food. I recommend regular use of fermented foods and wild foods for both food and medicine in the daily diet. I am a firm believer in juicing and ‘eating for free’ to get super nutrient rich food into us without big costs. I believe food should be simple and enjoyable.
The more we complicate our food with fancy recipes the further away from real nutrition we get. I suggest that the fancy recipes be kept for parties and special occasions, after all most people want changes to be practical and to fit into a busy schedule.
Of course food is only one part of the equation in overall health. Emotions are a powerful play in our everyday lives and impact strongly on our health as eating under stress can completely suspend our digestive juices. Then we must question how much we are absorbing.
My background in Yoga & Meditation has taught me to give equal importance to emotional states & lifestyle patterns when treating a patient. I use Iridology as a diagnostic tool and see it as a valuable addition in consultations.
The iris is more unique than a finger print and can give valuable insight into a persons basic constitutional and emotional strengths and weaknesses.
