Confused about What to Eat?

Did you know that it’s Allergy Awareness Week between April 23 to April 29 this year when Allergy UK works hard to continue to raise awareness around allergies. An allergy is a response of the body’s immune system to a normal harmless substance. The most common are pollen, food and household dust mite. The body sees them as a threat and rushes to protect itself from them. The most common symptoms – which will often occur within seconds or minutes – are sneezing, wheezing, shortness of breath, runny nose, rash or hives, itchy eyes, lips or throat, swelling of various parts of the body and sickness and diarrhoa. Evidence shows allergies are increasing worldwide with 30 to 35 per cent of the population suffering at some time in...


Do you have a hidden food intolerance?

According to Allergy UK, only 2% of people suffer from food allergy but an enormous 45 percent of people are actually suffering from food intolerance. Allergy and food intolerance are two issues about which the public needs to be more informed. What’s the difference between food intolerance and allergy – and why does it matter? Nutritional Therapist Helen Adams, of Oakmead Clinic in Chippenham, works with clients who have both and she can identify food intolerance quickly. “The main difference between food intolerance and allergy is that an allergy is a very strong and often immediate reaction to food (or something else related to food, such as latex or grasses), sometimes within seconds or minutes or up to half an hour. “The most well-known are peanuts or shellfish – and action must be...


Ditch the Detox and Diet in 2019

It’s that time of year when we’ve all had a lot to eat, drink and we’ve been merry and the detox and diet advertisements pop up on tv and social media in their thousands. We’re bombarded with messages about losing weight, getting slimmer and in shape. Nutritional therapist Helen Adams, of Oakmead Clinic, has some strong advice though – just ditch the detox and the diet and remember it should be about feeling good, not feeling deprived. “Having this green juice or that ready-made meal and basically starving yourself silly is not the answer. You will lose weight initially but you probably cannot wait for your ‘diet’ to end and then you’ll pile the weight all back on over time, sometimes very quickly,” Helen said. Christmas and New...


Do You Know What To Eat?

NUTRITIONIST Helen Adams has published her first book to help those with allergies, food intolerances and sensitivities to make healthy food choices. “I Don’t Know What to Eat? – the Definitive Guide to Food Allergies, Intolerances and Sensitivities” has just been published in paperback and e-book. Helen said: “I wrote the book because I like to recommend more resources for my clients to help them develop good eating habits and I just couldn’t find something suitable - so I wrote it myself. “There are so many myths around foods, allergies, and intolerances and I wanted to shed some light on various things which I’ve come across during my time as a nutritionist. One of the big ones is that people can take food tests and it comes up...
