Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy

 

Nutritional therapy can help to identify deficiencies and imbalances within the body and just as importantly, provide a space to explore the relationship with food and whether it is getting in the way of improving health.

Saskia Knight NT MBANT CNHC offers personalised nutritional advice for clients looking for a deeper understanding of their health. Saskia will help you to find the root causes of your symptoms and put together a plan to help support your recovery.

Saskia has worked in healthcare for over 8 years, on the National Diabetes Prevention Programme as a diabetes educator; Physical Health Lead on the Be Well service in Manchester and more recently, with the gut health company Chuckling Goat, on their microbiome testing programme.

Saskia has been working with us here at Instinct, helping to develop our nutritional programmes and providing one-to-one nutritional therapy in our clinic. 

Saskia’s particular area of interest is the gut microbiome and how it affects metabolic health – diabetes, cardiovascular health and obesity, however she supports clients in many areas of nutrition including:

  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Gut Health
  • Digestion and IBS
  • Skin Conditions (psoriasis, rosacea, eczema)
  • Autoimmune Conditions
  • Fatigue and Post-viral Malaise
  • Thyroid and Adrenal Health
  • Weight Management
  • Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes
  • Fatty Liver (NAFLD)
  • Blood Lipid Dysregulation
  • PCOS

Saskia’s approach to health is based on functional medicine, the idea that the body functions and responds in a unique way depending on numerous internal and external factors, therefore Saskia believes nutrition should be personalised and tailored to the individual.

 Although nutrition is the focus, you’ll discuss other areas of health such as physical activity, stress, sleep and relaxation. 

Saskia works with clients to develop a nutritional and lifestyle plan that supports physical health and mental wellbeing but is also sustainable and enjoyable!

Functional Tests Can give us more detailed information about where imbalances lie in the body are perhaps not functioning optimally or if there are nutritional deficiencies:

  • Metabolic health (blood lipids, glucose, insulin)
  • Thyroid and adrenal health
  • Digestion and gut microbiome
  • Nutritional deficiencies (vitamins, minerals, fatty acids)
  • Hormones (menopause, PCOS)
  • Liver and detoxification
