About Gillian Day
Whatever your circumstances, I can empower you to have a future where you are in control of your own health.
Fully qualified Nutritional Therapist, Herbal Medicine Practitioner, Naturopath and Lecturer at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. Gillian Day is trained in using genetic testing for identifying predispositions for any imbalances your body may be experiencing.
Good health is not just living without disease. It’s important to feel content and motivated about life. We sometimes take this for granted until something goes wrong and we start looking for answers, which can be hard to find.
Naturopathy; also known as naturopathic medicine is a healthcare philosophy that embraces the bodies natural ability to heal itself; together with the healing power of nature. It dates back hundreds of years and was the foundation of medicine prior to pharmaceutical drugs.
Naturopathy is the connection between the structural, biochemical and emotional components of every one of us. This is known as the trio of health. When one of these components is disturbed, the body will become imbalanced and the person may experience ill health or disease.
Naturopathy can be beneficial for a wide range of chronic and acute conditions as well as a general practice for good living.
Overall, a naturopath will encourage and empower you to take responsibility for your own health. This education is an invaluable part of the treatment process. A naturopath will assess and understand your health picture by taking time in a consult to review all aspects including health history, lifestyle, dietary habits, stress levels and environmental influences.”
Herbal medicine practitioners use the whole plant as a healing remedy to help the body prevent and treat complaints. Herbal medicine practitioners believe the sum of all of the parts of any one herb will be greater than any isolated part of that plant.
Many pharmaceutical drugs currently being produced are of plant origin, however their chemical compounds have been isolated, and synthesized; making them far more potent than any herb. This often leads to side effects, which at times can be harmful and even dangerous.
Western herbal medicine aims to seek and treat the underlying cause of ill health, with the treatment focusing on the individual patient and not the condition.
Please note – although herbs are natural and work with the body to help restore health and wellbeing; some herbs can be contra-indicated in certain conditions and therefore should always be prescribed by an accredited herbalist or naturopath.
The food we eat is responsible for the nutrients we receive and good nutrition provides the building blocks for health. Your nutritional status will be assessed using functional testing, current dietary intake and deficiency diagnostic tools such as nail and tongue diagnosis.
Naturopaths and nutritionists use therapeutic dosages, which may differ from those found in supplements at supermarkets and retail stores. This is to ensure your needs are met. A thorough practitioner will continually review credible research and traditional evidence to support dosage decisions.
My training, work experience and any achievement
Although I’m originally from Australia, my belief in nutrition, herbal medicine and naturopathy was born in the UK when I first moved here in 2002. After trying countless diets in an attempt to shift weight – I researched and adopted a holistic nutrition plan and lifestyle and I’ve never looked back.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science (Complementary Medicine) from Charles Sturt University in Australia.
I want to educate and inspire as many people as possible about what I’ve learnt.
Outside of my practice and teaching work; I’m a mum to 1 beautiful girl, Vivienne. If there’s ever any time left I love to cook and practice Bikram yoga.
You don’t go ‘off my radar’ between appointments; I’m available by telephone (if I’m busy, leave a message – which I’ll return) and will often ask you to ring me for an update.
