We can all benefit from a review of our nutrition, particularly if we are active: from recreational runners to ironmen. This is a key area that is often overlooked by athletes and can be the missing link between winning and losing.
Athletes with a well balanced nutritious diet have improved performance, better resistance from colds and flu, reduction of recovery time from injury
TheTriTouch sports nutrition package includes:
- • Initial questionnaire and food diary
- • Full consultation. This will take up to 1h30 and includes extensive history taking, along with analysis of food diary, taking the biochemical individuality of each person into consideration with emphasis on promotion of organ reserve. This is particularly important in athletes whose physiological demands are greater than sedate individuals. Any recommended tests will be discussed, some of which can be done by GPs along with recommendations for targeted nutritional supplementation to facilitate optimal performance.
- • Handouts and actions to target specific problems
- • Follow up consultation 4 weeks later.
- • This offer is priced at £150 for TheTriTouch patients (please quote TheTriTouch to benefit from this price). The package excludes optional laboratory tests and further consultations.
