Get healthy inside out

At Ebb&Flow we’re passionate about helping you to become healthier and happier. We love to see first hand the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle. Therefore we’re delighted to be adding further to our offering with the introduction of nutritional workshops and consultations with our in-house nutritional therapist Karen Alexander.

From endometriosis, fertility issues and hormonal complaints to eczema and other issues, Nutritional Therapy allows you to feed your body correctly to allow it to repair.  Interestingly many people suffer from a gut complaint in one form or another and this can affect your health in a variety of ways.

Our in-house nutritional therapist

Karen is terrifically experienced and supportive and we are so looking forward to her joining us. She is BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) and CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) registered, with an MSc in Personalised Nutrition. She specialises in women’s health issues, especially those stemming from thyroid complaints. These include fertility, pregnancy, menopause and female cycle issues and tiredness.


What we’re offering

We will be running workshops with Karen which will cover a variety of subjects. Our first is targeted at pre, peri, and post-menopausal women and the related hormonal issues. Karen will help students explore the ways in which complementary nutrition and hormone support can assist women in this often challenging time. The other workshops we have lined up focus on digestive health and nourishing your brain. Each of these will give you the opportunity to address health concerns and to improve your diet. Although this first workshop is now sold out we are going to be running it again… Watch this space. We’re also going to be asking students what workshops they would be interested in Karen running, so if you have any ideas or requests please do let us know!

In addition to the workshops Karen will be running individual consultation sessions. After filling out a detailed questionnaire you’ll meet with her for an hour to discuss your health in detail so Karen can really understand your case in depth.

Karen’s approach

Rather than prescribing ‘one-size-fits-all’ solutions, Karen provides scientific, evidence based analysis to tailor a diet to your personal requirements. This is important in identifying the unique underlying issues which could be affecting your wellbeing. She conducts full scientific function testing: blood samples, urine analysis and gut testing. This provides accurate flagging of the root cause of what is driving your condition.Through uncovering your health issues and discussing your goals, Karen will create a detailed, yet realistic diet for you, working to optimise your health.  She works closely with Wild Nutrition, who provide supplements all available to buy here at Ebb&Flow. These fantastic supplements work alongside your diet to help your body absorb more of the key nutrients and vitamins.

If you have any questions about Karen, the workshops or the consultations, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
