We change lives

Here’s what people say about working with the Coho Health Manchester Nutritionist team

I initially went to see Dee to see whether I could control my PMS symptoms (mood swings & anger) – avoiding the ‘antidepressants’ route.

To my surprise, after only 2 sessions and implementing the changes to my diet and lifestyle that Dee had suggested (as well as a vitamin supplement), my mood was much more manageable.

Now a few months later, it’s actually not a problem anymore, I am much more calm, and have a lot more energy. As a result, the whole family, not just myself, have benefited from Dee’s help! I would certainly recommend Dee to anyone.
Dee knew before any GP that my issues were caused by hormones.

Now that I have a diagnosis of endometriosis she is who I have gone back to for help and advice.

She is so supportive and has really tailored her approach to suit me, my lifestyle, and my needs. I would recommend her to anyone!

I went for the GP blood tests today and it happened to be my diabetic nurse that took them…. was expecting her to be a bit peeved that I hadn’t taken them (prescribed medication for diabetes) and gone elsewhere for advice….

She weighed me and said “oh gosh well something’s working you’ve really lost some weight”. She said she thought my Nutritionist sounded amazing to keep trying what I was doing, it made total sense to her.

That probably 10 years ago my thyroid would have been classified as a problem by the GP but that the boundaries have decreased. She asked me who you were as her sister has low level thyroid issues that are not classified as an issue by the NHS but that are having a negative affect…
PJ – Part 1
My HbA1c in December (after I’d been calorie counting and generally doing the ‘eat right plate’) was 57, this is when the diabetic nurse first suggested I go on the tablets that have a side effect of thrush.

She said the target for me was 48, this seemed impossible as I felt I was trying so hard already. My result today, after roughly just 6 or 7 weeks doing what you’ve said (and not 100% perfectly) is 46!!

I am absolutely delighted!! And surprised!! I just obviously need to keep doing what I’m doing.I seriously cannot thank you enough. I know I am still on a journey but I know feel like I’m on the right path. So glad I didn’t take those extra tablets and contacted you instead.

Prior to my experience of working with Dee at Coho Health I was suffering from terrible gastro-intestinal discomfort and symptoms.

This was having a profound impact on my health and general well-being, I wasn’t myself and I wasn’t able to do the things I enjoyed.

Since seeing Dee I am at the peak of wellness, fitness and strength and I can’t recommend her expertise enough.

A fantastic investment in my wellness, health and knowledge.

For years I have struggled with stomach discomfort and sinus issues and more recently my stress levels have risen due to work and study commitments.

My stomach has had a dramatic turnaround now that I better understand some of the triggers which had previously caused discomfort.

The sessions continue to be an education and even though I’m still a work in progress, I know that with Dee’s guidance I can continue on a healthy path.
When I came to Coho Health I was unknowingly suffering with SIBO and an under active Thyroid.

I cannot thank Coho Health enough and have already recommended Aga to my friends and family. I feel that this is the future of health and a lot of ill health today has unfortunately been misdiagnosed.

Working with Coho has been an amazing experience and not only am I happy with the results I feel I have also gained an education in the meantime.
The detox is going well – mentally I’ve never felt happier.

Initially it was tough physically due to illness, but I finally think physically I’m starting to feel the benefits too.

I’m slowly getting into cooking different food and loving it, and I feel like I would love to keep this up past January.

So a HUGE thanks for this, it’s been a really big learning curve. Amongst other things it’s stopped me picking at rubbish food and given me the motivation to start yoga again.
Rosie Clark
I was suffering from huge slumps in energy in the day and struggling to have the energy to train regularly and keep my weight low which is very important for a cyclist.

The nutrition plan that Dee gave me allowed me to lose body fat whilst increasing strength & fitness.

At the same time I was able to maintain my weight without feeling hungry or getting energy slumps. In the race itself I performed much better than anticipated, something I couldn’t have achieved without the help of the team at Coho Health.
James Darnell
Being on antibiotics really slowed us down over the summer but I feel like we have achieved so much.

I think my leaky gut is now healed as I can now eat avocado without getting stomach ache – which is fantastic as it’s one of my favourite foods!

My hand eczema has reduced significantly and is now more under control.

I’ve learned how to manage my diet, learnt so much about gut health and how it affects EVERYTHING!

The world of nutrition is often confusing with contradictory information widely available, different political agendas, mis-information and lack of scientific integrity.  

In this complex, constantly evolving field, it can be difficult to understand the best nutritional options for each persons’ unique requirements.

The truth is that what we put in our mouth every day and the way we live our life are the foundations of our mental, physical and emotional health.

Nutritionist Manchester

Every single pathway in the body has a requirement for one or more nutrient, for example:

  • our cells require healthy fats and minerals to function optimally
  • we require minerals and B vitamins to convert food into cellular energy
  • hair requires protein and various minerals
  • iron is required to ensure oxygen is transported around the body
  • minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients support liver enzymes to assist in normal detoxification processes
  • dietary fats are needed to modulate inflammatory responses, blood clotting and wound healing

These are just a very few examples of body functions to highlight that every process in the body is dependent on nutrition.  

If we are therefore lacking in a specific nutrient, or have an excess, then physiology (how the body functions) changes.

When our body’s ‘normal function’ changes, it leads to abnormal function, and we can develop chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular risk, autoimmune conditions, and by correcting nutrient insufficiencies or excesses, Nutritional Therapy can bring about positive changes.

When you get the right foods for you, combined with realistic lifestyle changes, your body’s powerful, natural healing mechanisms are given the circumstances to do the rest.

And the results can be astounding.

Coho Health uses a wide range of advanced laboratory testing (in conjunction with more standard blood testing to check levels of folate, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, magnesium for example) to help identify underlying imbalances and understand food and nutrient needs for each person.

Food allergy and intolerance testing can help to take the confusion out of what feels like random reactions to foods, where it can often be difficult to pinpoint the problematic foods. 

A range of different food reaction tests are available which we regularly use, from specialist labs in the UK, EU and America. 

Your Coho practitioner can make specific recommendations based on your specific case.

Coho practitioners work with people in all stages of life – we have clients who are pregnant, infants, children, teenagers, adults and the elderly. 

Nutritional requirements is different at each stage and understanding this is key to optimising health, preventing future problems and supporting longevity.

Nutritional Therapy Manchester

The Nutritional Therapy team in Manchester city centre (based at Optimised Personal Wellness) are professional, experienced, thorough and supportive and can help you regain your health.

In Nutritional Therapy, nutritional and lifestyle interventions are recommended based on your unique signs, symptoms, environment, dietary considerations, genetics, medical history, diagnosis and / or medications. 

This highly individualised approach takes into account you as a whole, listening carefully to your health history and digging deep to identify any underlying imbalances, that can then be supported through an evidence-based, naturopathic approach.

Through applying the Functional Medicine model in Nutritional Therapy, we are reviewing the function of all body systems to indicate where there may be imbalances.

We consider factors such as sleep, stress, environment, movement as well as nutrition and performing advanced functional testing to provide clear, precise information on how the body is functioning. 

Most importantly, the approach is highlighting areas that require support, that when addressed, can help you to feel better.

The team work very closely together, unlike many multi-practitioner clinics, so that we may strive to deliver the best services to our clients, having weekly case review meetings, reviewing the latest research and upgrading our client services. 

The minimum Continuous Professional Development (CPD) requirement for UK registered Nutritionists and Nutritional Therapists is exceeded by Coho practitioners by at least three-fold, with some Coho practitioners meeting the yearly requirement in just one month. 

Our dedication to being better practitioners so that we can help our clients in the best way, is at the heart of everything we do.

Medical or other healthcare related referrals can be made as and when required, to ensure we are providing an integrated approach to your health and well-being.

The Coho team are also supported by a pharmacist who can assist with medication reviews or private prescriptions.
