Hi Folks, just a quick review of Charlotte Griffin and her nutrition service, Something On A Plate, which I've used over the past few months; it's all true, unsolicited and as glowing as I now am! I attended the Centre for Integral Health to see Charlotte Griffin, a nutritionist and willowy Zen-like lady, who inspired me from the start - oh, to have her clear eyes, beautiful skin and calm manner.
I'd found her after I'd hit my nutritional nadir which involved largely eating Hula Hoops and drinking endless cups of coffee. My life, in various ways, was in a bit of a tip and nowhere was that more reflected in how little I invested in my own well-being. After initial emails had confirmed the appointment and sent across a meal diary - 'include everything! There is no judgement!' she'd written - we met for our first consultation. She was incredibly receptive and listened to my various tales of woe, writing everything down so that she could see the overall narrative at work. Her questions were perceptive and intelligent and I began to see the holistic angle she takes to her work. Added to that, she really *is* non-judgemental which made it easier for me to be honest as to how I'd neglected my health!
Two days later, a plan came through which, while daunting in some places - quinoa, anyone? - gave me the hope that I could turn things round. Within four days of implementing the plan, my eyes had lost their pall and were becoming brighter. Indeed, as I developed the desire to cook, the recipes began to reveal the delights of healthy eating to me and within a fortnight, I was making totally different choices in the supermarket aisles. My energy started to increase and things which had pestered me politely took their leave, too. Over a month on and I've developed a nascent passion for cooking, waved goodbye to lots of horrible symptoms and most importantly changed the way I feel about myself; food is the most tangible dialogue we have with ourselves and thanks to Charlotte's professional, understanding and warm approach, I've transformed that completely. I wholeheartedly and sincerely recommend her work.
