You may have heard the phrase “you are what you eat”! Nutritional therapists take this one step further and include “you are what you absorb” and “excrete”!
It is clear our diets can influence our weight, and our short term and long term health. Eaternal Health is keen to provide clients with the knowledge, practical tools, and delicious recipes to maximise their health potential, and to reach and maintain their ideal weight.
In addition Eaternal Health recognises the importance of how we live our lives.
Constant stress, emotional and physical, as well as lack of exercise and time to just ‘be’ can exacerbate potential health risks. Eaternal Health promotes lifestyle choices including regular exercise, meditation and relaxation, and encourages the use of natural products in our homes and on our bodies.
Eaternal Health believes in eternal health through optimum nutrition and inspired living! We’d like you to enjoy this too!
I’m Samantha Farmer, founder of Eaternal Health, through which I help people with health issues or weight problems to reduce their symptoms and discomfort and to lose weight, guiding them through simple changes to their diet and lifestyle to feel energised, and to look and feel amazing. These changes are manageable and sustainable for life.
I am a registered nutritional therapist, a member of BANT & CNHC, having studied for a diploma in nutritional therapy at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition under the Institute for Functional Medicine model.
I became conscious of being different when my weight was addressed by a G.P. at 12 years old. Subsequently, as I grew older, various diets and products were tried with a lesser or greater degree of success. Some would result in short term slimness but this could never be sustained for very long.
I had a 4 week trial with Zest4life and Sam was my nutritionalist and coach. It was a valuable education into 'diets', foods and the way they work and the way our bodies use them. I'm a firm believer in "Knowledge is Power' - particularly in tackling weight! Sam explained it all so it was easy to understand and anything I didn't quite get she would explain further, until I did.
I went to see Sam with several heath niggles and also for preconception health advice. I have enjoyed the sessions as Sam is a wonderful fountain of foodie knowledge who I could chat to for much longer than the time allows. She is a lovely person who takes the time to explain everything fully as well as answer any questions you have in great detail.
I first saw Charles Dunning at The Bridge Centre and he has helped me with various health issues. He then referred me to Samantha Farmer a nutritionist at the centre for further help with my food issues. I found Samantha very friendly and reassuring and she explained things in simple easy to understand terms.
