HELLO! I am Sue Bedford – a Qualified Nutritional Therapist with a special interest in fertility. I gained my MSc in Nutritional Therapy in 2012. My advanced independent study explored the area of nutrition and IVF in depth and I have successfully worked with a variety of clients ever since.
I have a science background and have worked extensively with people requiring advice for general health and wellness, the menopause primarily.
I am the co-editor of two books on fertility, in the first of which I wrote two important chapters, one on covering BMI obesity and fertility and the other on lifestyle factors affecting fertility.
So what does the ‘Food for Fertility’ programme offer?
This is an individual programme tailored to YOU.
When it comes to nutrition, ‘one size does not fit all’ – we are all biologically different and this is known as ‘biochemical individuality’. The food that you eat, along with your lifestyle and any associated stress can have an impact on fertility and it is important to get your body in optimal health not only for YOU, but for conception and to support a healthy pregnancy. This programme provides a comprehensive package including key information regarding food, diet and fertility and a one-to-one remote consultation tailored to YOU with advice on a supplement programme if necessary. It also includes a free hair mineral analysis through a top London laboratory which helps to identify mineral deficiencies and toxic elements.
This programme is right for you if:
You want to improve and optimise your health and nutrition prior to conception and beyond.
- If you would like a personalised nutrition and supplement plan to suit
- If you would like to know which nutrients are key in relation to fertility and which foods to get them from.
- If you would like to know if you have any mineral deficiencies or potential toxins.
- If you need help with meal planning and some healthy meal and snack ideas.
- If you would like help to balance hormones and reduce inflammation.
