    Dr Lucy Williamson

    Sustainable Food Choices

    As in nature, our body’s systems are connected together, with our vital gut health, our microbiome, at the core. As a former Vet turned award-winning Registered Nutritionist, I link health back to its roots: the food we eat, how it’s farmed, and a whole health approach. This ensures sustainable healthy outcomes for you as well as our animals & our land. 

     

    "Fantastic course full of interesting information. Great value for money. Thank you and well done to the team"

    "A very interesting and enjoyable course thank you to all involved. I have been inspired to make healthy changes to my diet and lifestyle too!

    "Thank you all, I really enjoyed each session. I feel better equipped learning about the science of gut health, alongside the food. "

    "I have loved this course, it has joined all the dots for me!" Thank you to all three of you."

     Core Concepts of The Gut Project

    Food & ferment

    Our microbes thrive on a variety of fibre-rich, nutrient-dense food. Seasonal & colourful means nutrient-packed & naturally prebiotic! Fermented, probiotic, foods provide valuable microbes & postbiotics, while research now shows unprocessed fish, dairy and meat all have their place in Gut-Healthy, plant-based eating too.
    Lucy Williamson Nutrition individual session

    rest & SLEEP

    Stress and reduced sleep have a profound impact on our microbiome (our community of gut bacteria) and therefore our health and wellbeing. Inflammatory, hormonal and depressive disorders are all linked with our microbes and their role on our Gut-Brain axis. It’s a complex but vitally important concept for our best health, mood and emotions.

    NATURE-positive

    Our microbes reconnect our health with nature via our gut – this is where our biology and bacteria meet! Healthy soils as well as time spent up close with the land all positively impact our gut health; no nonsense – it’s evidence-based! Understanding how our food from ‘nature-positive’ farming benefits our health, is key.
    Lucy Williamson Nutrition individual session

    on the move

    Science is showing that our microbes like to be kept on the move! Regular movement such as walking at pace, increases our gut microbe diversity; a key aim in nurturing our microbiome. 30 minutes of increased heart rate daily, dance if you like, is all it takes. Food, rest, nature… and keeping on the move, simple steps to sustainable health.
