Surrey Pregnancy Nutrition
Nutritional therapy is an evidence-based approach to maximising one’s health and wellbeing through individually formulated nutrition and lifestyle changes. Nutritional therapy isn’t about telling you what to eat, but is a process of education, and collaboration where the nutritional therapist works with you to make healthy changes to your diet.
There’s no stigma or judgment – just two minds, working together for the goal of health.
The benefits of eating well in pregnancy
Good nutrition is important for women’s health in general, but it becomes vital when we are pregnant, in keeping ourselves and our developing baby healthy.
There is often conflicting advice around what you can eat, what you can’t eat, and how much you should eat. And how do we work out what is right for us?
The problem with what we read in books and online, is that it isn’t tailored to us, and with nutrition, one size often doesn’t fit all. That's when the support of nutritional therapists can be vital in finding out exactly what suits you and your situation.
Even better is that proper nutrition can support (and even eliminate) pregnancy symptoms. We were speaking to our nutritional therapist, Kathryn Watson, about how to manage swollen feet and legs in pregnancy through nutrition:
‘My top tips are for managing swelling are:
- to keep water intake up, at least 2 litres spread across the day
- to minimise salty and sugary foods
- to eat the currently in-season asparagus, as this acts as a natural diuretic, flushing out excess fluids and salts.’
Fascinating! So whether you have a specific health concern or just want to stay healthy during pregnancy, nutritional therapy has a lot to offer you.
