About Liz Ford

liz ford nutritionist

My background and training have been in the area of nutrition for wellness.

In the past few years my own research, training and self-experimentation led me to develop a more Holistic or Integrated approach to health. The focus is on using whole foods while considering Mind, Body and Spirit or Emotional Health and Intuitive information, that can help support my clients with improving their health and general well-being.

There is no 'one diet fits all' but there are general principles that do apply.

Eating a nutrient dense whole foods diet is one of the foundations of being well, healthy and full of energy.

A whole foods approach uses foods in their most natural form. Generally these foods do not come in packets or boxes, do not have artificial ingredients or preservatives added, are naturally low in sugar, carbohydrates and gluten as well as being naturally higher in healthy fats. These foods are super high in the nutrients that everyone needs to thrive and be healthy.

Using real food as medicine is very powerful and can help support the body to heal itself.

My approach is to empower my clients to be find the best way to eat for their needs and body type as well as to enable them to lose excess weight(if required), gain energy, easily control blood sugars, improve memory and brain function, and improve digestion.

Overall the result is improved resilience and enhanced immune performance or overall well-being.

Many of my clients have been able to reduce, stop or avoid the need for prescription medications.
