NUTRITION AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Nutrition is probably the most powerful "drug" we have readily available to us, and quite simply you can either
USE IT or you can ABUSE IT.
The health of your body, and its ability to respond effectively to exercise,
is primarily based on the type of food that you provide for it. Just like a car, if you put good fuel and
oil in, and service it regularly, the car is more likely to perform well. If you put poor fuel and dirty oil in, and
don´t service it, the car is likely to cough and splutter and eventually die! The thing is that you can change
your car when it breaks down, but you cannot change your body.
Increasingly, in today's world, we are
getting the balance wrong as we are tempted to eat things that contain less and less of the essential nutrients
that our bodies need, and more and more things that may fill us up, but contain little nutrient but lots of additives,
preservatives, colourings, flavourings and chemicals.
Here at Profigura, we can introduce you to the principles
of THE ZONE. This is an approach toward eating that ensures you are receiving the right balance of macro- and micro-
nutrients, specific to the needs of YOUR body and activity levels. The ZONE is a scientifically proven approach,
and is based on rebalancing your complex hormonal system, in turn protecting the very complicated range of systems and
functions that perform within your body 24 hours a day. It has been tested on individuals with a many types of disease,
including heart disease and diabetes, obesity or weight problems, as well on top performing athletes - and all with amazing

body a whole new experience!
Our world is now 100's of times more toxic than it was even 50 years ago. Everything from the air that we breath,
to the makeup we put on our body, and the food that we now eat, are full of toxins.
Research now suggests that
the majority of disease is being caused by a combination of poor diet and the increase of chemical toxins in our daily lives.
When it comes to toxins, there are basically two types - metals and chemicals. Our bodies natural cleaning systems
are designed to deal with metal toxins provided we look after them (skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, colon,
blood), but they were never designed to deal with chemical toxins which accumulate and start to attack our bodies at cellular
Working in association with Denise and Eric at Style Health and Beauty, we can help you and your
body eliminate many of the toxic chemicals with an algae based treatment programme which may include specialist massage treatments
or a home care programme of bathing and/or taking algae rich food supplements.
Your initial consultation
will involve participating in a safe, non-invasive test to establish how much water your body is retaining as an indicator
of the level of toxicity that exists. From this analysis, we will be able to recommend a programme specific to your
ALLERGY OR FOOD INTOLERANCE
Your body can react quite strongly
to things to which it has a sensitivity - which might be innocent lettuce! Eliminating these substances from your normal
diet, at least for a period of time, can lead to feelings of improved wellbeing within days, and can also be of great help
if you are taking part in a weight loss programme.
Your consultation will last approximately 1 hour, and
during this time Ann will undertake the Vega Test. This is a safe, reliable, non-invasic, quick and convenient
method of testing for sensitivities. You will be tested for your reaction to more than 100 every day foods and
substances, in addition to having your vitamin and mineral status checked.
