Philip H. Odle
ISSA Certified Nutritionist -- Certified Advanced Gut Restoration Nutritional Advisor

Services

Introduction

Although I am prepared to work with all age groups, my focus will be on the adult population.

As we age, we tend to become less active, our metabolism slows and energy and nutrient needs change. Very often, we experience changes in taste which could lead to poor food choices. We often end up choosing overly sweet or salty processed foods, simply because they look tasty and feel good in the mouth. Quicker food preparation becomes increasingly convenient. On the other hand, if we are food lovers and love cooking, the possibility of overnutrition comes into play. These conditions are likely to bring about digestive issues, as well as increasing difficulty in controlling other health issues already in existence. e. g.  IBS, IBD, overweight, Hypertension, type2 diabetes etc. Through it all, a well-nourished and healthy gut microbiome is central to overall good health. As Hippocrates claimed, all diseases begin in the gut.

I look forward to hearing from you. Give me a call or drop me an email here. or info@golivinghealthy.com

FBCA and/or The Single Visit

30-45 minutes: BDS$ 160 and/or 110

Our Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis service provides a comprehensive view of your body's internal functions. By analysing a wide range of interconnected biomarkers with tighter “optimal” ranges, we can uncover subtle imbalances and potential health risks that may not be apparent through the lens of wider standard laboratory reference ranges.

If then you might feel unwell, despite standard blood tests showing "normal", let us delve into the intricate interactions between different biomarkers and see how best we might go about attaining optimal health.
The cost of this FBCA is: BDS$160.00

This evaluation is purely informational and an assessment of possible risk. It does not represent or claim to represent a diagnosis of any condition. It does not and cannot replace medical advice from your medical doctor. Always consult with your doctor for diagnosis and medical treatment.

The Single Visit: Personalized health counselling. This is a "one-off" consultation, when you do not want to pursue a complete programme. At this point we establish an existing health profile.

The first step taken before undertaking any programme, is to establish a profile. We have to see where we are as a “starting point” before moving forward. It involves completing a number of forms. Three forms in particular, must be completed. They are: A Client Health Check Questionnaire, a medical referral form and an Informed Consent Form.

You might want to consider a "Clinic Seat Subscription" at BDS$50.00 for the year. With this we will have the above- mentioned forms and will be able to complete multiple "one-off" consultations. With this we also include an Antioxidant Assessment, with results. Should you decide to enroll in one of the four programmes, the "seat subscription" will be considered "programme inclusive". (e.g. Programme $400.00 -50.00 = net $350.00) Should you want to consider this, drop me an e-mail here.

Gut Restoration

8 stages: BDS$800

Occasionally, we all suffer with gut discomfort but what happens when it becomes chronic? Why has it become chronic and how can we go about fixing it? 

 Let's begin by understanding what gut restoration nutrition is all about. The gut, also known as the digestive tract, plays a vital role in our overall health. It not only helps us digest food but also houses millions of bacteria that influence our immune system, mood, and even brain function.

Unfortunately, factors like poor diet, stress, antibiotics, asid-blockers, other drugs and environmental toxins ,can disrupt the delicate balance of our gut microbiome. An imbalance in gut bacteria can lead to digestive issues, inflammation, weakened immunity, and even mental health challenges. Let's dive into the key components of our gut restoration programme. 

Our four-phase, eight stage process does not simply mean eight consultations. Although the four-phase process is constant, actions within the eight stages will differ from client to client. We will be available for voice and video calls, from 10am to 2:30pm, Tuesday to Thursday. Most times however, via emails and or messaging through our clinic portal, over the course of the programme. This is all about results. 

We will initially seek to: 

  • Accurately access digestive symptom. 
  • Identify the best plan based on individual goals, symptoms and diet. 
  • Build a personalized, workable, gut restoration programme.

Together we will continue along a clearly defined path:

  • Firstly(1R): Remove Excesses - We will seek to remove unnecessary excesses. These can be related to and range from foods or food groups and over the counter drugs to stress-related habits.
  • Secondly(2R): Replace Losses - We will identify and incorporate missing foods and nutrients, along with lifestyle factors (e.g., Physical activity and sleep quality)
  • Thirdly(3R): Repopulate the Gut - This stage is about restoring the gut microbiota, in order to address gut imbalances. The aim is to help alleviate symptoms such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or other conditions. It also considers pre. and pro-biotics.
  • Fourthly(4R): Repair Damage - This step focuses on repairing the damage that has been caused in the past. This is about the introduction of nutritional and lifestyle practices to rebuild and maintain gut lining (barrier) integrity.

So, whether you're struggling with digestive issues, weakened immunity, or simply want to enhance your overall health, gut restoration nutrition is the key. Make small changes today and reap the long-term benefits. Let us embrace a healthier lifestyle, fuel our bodies with the right nutrients, and rediscover the true potential of our gut health!


Important Note: Please remember, our evaluations assess risk. We can educate and appraise you about factors affecting gut health; we do not “diagnose” medical conditions. This programme cannot replace a doctor`s advice or treatment but it can certainly complement medical therapies. Should you be concerned about any health symptoms, you should immediately consult your medical, psychological or other appropriate practitioner.

 

Full disclosure: Although I do personally use the products, I must declare that I have an affiliate association with the pro-biotic company BiotiQuest.

Recognising the impact of nutrition on health and gene expression and understanding the relationship between free radicals and DNA damage we will: 

  • Analyse antioxidant capacity and put forward nutritional recommendations to increase antioxidant protection.

Understanding the influence of plant-based foods, polyphenols, phytochemicals, probiotics, and fibre on health promotion and disease prevention we will: 

  • Perform nutritional assessments, detect probable nutrient deficiency risks, and formulate personalised dietary strategies to help correct them.

Nutritional therapy is a powerful tool for achieving optimal health and well-being, offering personalised dietary interventions which address specific health concerns and promote overall wellness.

Detoxification

4 weels: BDS$400

First of all, what qualifies as a toxin and what do we mean by detoxification, what is it?
A toxin is any substance that the body cannot use in any purposeful way, that requires energy to be removed or can cause significantly large doses of harm. Detoxification is any chemical or mechanical process that removes toxic substances or changes substances, injurious to the body, so that those toxic substances are no longer damaging. 

Depending on where they take place, detoxification can be categorised as internal or external. Generally, in a healthy body, our internal detoxification systems, through the digestive tract, liver, immune system, kidneys and lungs, do a remarkable job of clearing whatever toxins are “thrown at them"; keeping us as clean as possible. We must also remember the major role of skin in external detoxification. Sometimes however, for any number of reasons, things “go wrong” and those organs need a helping hand. If we push the body too hard, something is bound to break and there is no "magic pill" to fix it.

Our role is to:

  • Perform symptoms assessment, evaluate detoxification capacity, recognise sources of endogenous and exogenous toxins. Inform on the nature of toxicity and detoxification.
  • Identify risk and symptoms of exposure to toxin types and devise nutritional strategies to help alleviate them.
  • Understand internal elimination and biochemical detoxification pathways, which particular nutrients enhance them and which agents hinder them.
  • Analyse diet, sleep and hydration. Suggest tailored nutritional recommendations to enhance detoxification, then build personalised short-term nutritional plans based on the current state of health and track progress.

The objective then, is a body which is detoxifying efficiently, allowing you to simply feel better and potentially adding healthy years to your life.
