EP. 8. FOOD, MOOD AND EMOTIONS WITH JANE BARNES


In this episode I am in conversation with Jane Barnes, Jane and I talk about ways to bring in a greater understanding between emotional health and nutrition. Nurturing the microbiomes and gut health. The importance of understanding the link between your emotional health and your nutritional health. The emotional trigger of sugar, and the complex dynamic of sugar in the diet. She offers her view on the benefits of starting your day where your blood sugars are stabilised, and how emotional energy and a balanced diet really support the foundation to your well being.

MORE ABOUT JANE:


Jane studied Biological Sciences and graduated with a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Edinburgh. Shortly after this, and following a move back to Gloucestershire with her husband, she was struck down with chronic fatigue and was eventually diagnosed with an autoimmune condition.


After several frustrating years of visiting doctors and feeling like she was getting nowhere, Jane set about trying to find her own answers to improving her health - and this is when she discovered the power of nutritional medicine which completely turned her health (and life!) around.


A key part of her recovery was also working to understand and release the subconscious emotional blocks she had absorbed from her family and relationships - and this is now an important part of how she works with her clients.


Jane enjoys working with anyone who is struggling with chronic ill health but she has a particular passion for helping those suffering from autoimmunity, chronic fatigue, depression or anxiety.
