Venetia Armitage: Nutrition
A nutritionist and expert in adrenal fatigue
A practising nutritionist for more than 20 years who will help with sleep deprivation issues and its associated problems. Work/life balance has sadly become increasingly distorted for most of us. Lack of time to plan meals, poor food choices and rushed or late meals or too much alcohol can trigger sleep issues. This vicious cycle can then generate adrenal fatigue which is often seen in individuals who are very sluggish in the mornings, relying on caffeine to get them going and eating high carbohydrate foods which they wrongly believe will sustain them.
