The following teacher provided material and lectures for this Nutrition Advisor Course.
Mary became a nutritional therapist in 2002 after training with the Plaskett College of Nutritional medicine. Since then she has trained in many disciplines including homotoxicology, Iridology and Ayurveda.
Marys interest in nutrition started many years earlier, in her teens when her mother used nutrition to support herself whilst coming off of the many drugs that she had been prescribed for her spinal tumour a few years earlier. This was the 1970’s when there was little knowledge about nutrition or even alternative medicine. It was several years later, after the birth of her first child, that Mary discovered a small course in ‘Allergy Therapy’ which taught muscle resistance testing to identify food sensitivities. This course taught Mary how to test effectively for food and chemical sensitivities and how to assist people with dietary changes so that they could return to health. However, the course did not fully answer my questions as to why people had become intolerant to certain foods or chemicals in the first place.It was at this point, whilst still training in Allergy therapy that Mary was told of a short correspondence course in Nutrition. This course began to answer questions for me such as why people got ill, how we can give our children a healthier future and how good nutrition was at the base of optimal health.
Mary has been in private practice since 1994 and works along-side many other disciplines. Mary's passion is now to offer training in naturopathic medicine so that other practitioners can bring this message to their clients and make this a healthier, happier place to live.
After qualifying as a Dietary Therapist, Bill worked in a Natural Health Centre in Devon for some years, comparing notes with Homeopaths, Osteopaths, Massage and Aromatherapists, and gaining a well rounded insight into what might be described as a philosophy of natural health. Nutrition is a fascinating subject because it has it's roots quite literally in the very ground we inhabit, and yet it is capable of giving rise to the most ungrounded aspirations.
Bill has for some thirty years been a student of meditation, one of the most basic tenets of which is mindfulness. The most basic question to ask anyone worried about their own nutrition is "do you enjoy eating?" and this question needs some mindfulness in order to answer it truthfully, because we all tend to eat with our attention elsewhere, and we need the strong sensations of sweet, sour, hot & cold to remind us that we're eating at all.
"Our bodies are actually equipped with much subtler sensors which can tell us whether the food is doing us any good, and if we are able to "listen" to the sensors then we can truly learn to enjoy our food. It is this cultivation of enjoyment of food that lies at the heart of his philosophy of nutrition."
