Discover how to transform your health and the health of your clients in this nine-part Masterclass series: Nutrition for Homeopaths with Naomi Devlin.
Nutrition affects nearly every aspect of our daily health and wellbeing making it a vital field for homeopaths to keep up-to-date and informed about.
However, the field of nutrition is often rife with contradictory and confusing claims, myths and beliefs.
In this Masterclass, Naomi uses her wealth of knowledge to cut through the noisy world of nutrition and explain in depth how to use an individualised approach to nutrition, using foods not supplements, to improve your own health and wellbeing, as well as that of your clients.
Here's a short 20 min video extract from the gut health module
"Naomi is a complete inspiration and brings a wealth of knowledge and common sense to the confusing and often contradictory world of nutrition. Always bringing the information back to how and why nutrition is vital for holistic health and will allow us to pick up on otherwise unseen obstacles in the homeopathic case taking. This course has added an invaluable new tool to my homeopathic practice and I cannot recommend highly enough."
A brief look at why Naomi works with food and not supplements and how this relates to Hahnemann’s instructions in aphorism 3 to remove obstacles to cure.
Taking the case of someone’s diet should be as holistic as the rest of your case taking. In aphorism 4 Hahnemann instructs the physician to look at all aspects of a patient - from lifestyle and character, to what they eat and where they live. We’ll look at how you can draw out underlying emotional issues through talking about food and how to take a complete case.
Some much needed myth-busting around fats. With so much misinformation about fat in our diet from the media and food manufacturers, it can be hard to educate our patients to eat fat in its most nourishing forms. We’ll look at the three types of fats and what they do in the body, how to identify stable fats, sources of anti-inflammatory fats, how to cook with them and what to avoid.
Crucial to good health, the gut is the soil of the body, the home of 70% of the immune system and a vital interface between our cells and the outside world. We’ll cover how the gut works, the gut microbiome, the estrobolome and discuss some of the common issues that come up in practice relating to gut function and immunity. We’ll look at FODMAPs, prebiotics, probiotics, postbiotics and psychobiotics.
From fats to polyphenols, food is a great source of anti-inflammatories that can help to soothe a jumpy immune system and normalise cell turnover. We’ll look briefly at major causes of inflammation not already covered in Fats and Gut health, before discussing some simple advice that can help patients include more anti-inflammatory foods in their diets.
A common issue for atopic types. Understanding short-term support measures that can reduce histamine levels in the gut can enable patients to take control of their own symptoms and takes the pressure off finding the perfect remedy right away
From ethical choices about what we eat, to dietary restrictions because we can’t digest certain foods, it’s important to understand and respect the choices of our clients. However, choosing an alternative diet can sometimes lead to deficiencies or fail to help manage symptoms and it helps to know how to signpost people to the best version of their chosen diet, or recommend something that will help.
Modern life is awash with sugar in so many forms so we will look at how to identify if someone is upsetting their blood sugar balance, symptoms, sources and alternatives. A little myth-busting about sugar alternatives too.
A few recommendations for books, sites and strategies to help patients take ownership of their own health by cooking more, understanding more and engaging with self help measures.
Naomi Devlin is a food writer, nutritionist and homeopath based in beautiful West
Dorset. She teaches nutrition, cookery and fermentation around the country to home cooks, chefs and homeopaths.
Born in Ireland, Naomi spent her formative years in a commune in rural Dorset - home educated, milking cows, growing veg, cooking and eating with the seasons. Through necessity, she discovered how to learn what she needed to know by seeking out people and resources, following the knowledge and becoming a sponge for the things that mattered to her. It was an unconventional upbringing that taught her to keep asking questions and look
in unexpected places for the answers.
After training as a costume designer and a few dissolute years working in film and then fashion, she retrained as a homeopath, returning to the medicine and values she had known as a child. In practice and through further study with the Weston Price Foundation and many other inspirational teachers, her focus became more and more about food - as a source of both healing and joy and a means to empower her clients to help themselves through the preventative medicine of eating well.
She celebrates seasonal produce, fermented food and satisfying, colourful meals, that feel comfortingly familiar, yet intriguingly different.
"Naomi is truly a holistic nutritionist; she has such a wonderful way of sharing her passion and knowledge about client-centred nutrition to achieving and maintaining excellent health. This individualising nutrition approach that Naomi teaches can make a powerful difference in our practices – empowering clients to take control of their health and wellbeing and it is also an important part of our own self-care as practitioners. If you’re looking for inspirational, clinical, and practical approaches to nutrition – then this course is for you!"
"As a homeopath, there are times when it becomes obvious that remedies alone are not going to alleviate some conditions - and listening to Naomi’s seminar, I could think of several patients who would now benefit from nutritional guidance. This seminar has given me a valuable tool to add to my practice. Naomi speaks with great clarity and humour and is very generous with her knowledge. "
"I wasn't sure what to expect from a 'Nutrition Course'. However, Naomi delivers this in such a user-friendly way, understandable and with an easy going approach, it is easy to follow. For me, she gave a different aspect of case-taking with a more in-depth look at gut issues and the effects it has on the body. I was amazed at the effects it has. I loved this course, I could listen to Naomi all the time, she is informative and willing to give her information. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have taken so much away with me. Thank you. "
