Sal Prothero is a Clinical Nutritionist, author, presenter and founder of Whole Food Nutrition. She is passionate about whole food and mental health.
Sal knows what it’s like to have anxiety and depression. When Sal was younger, mental health wasn’t spoken about so she didn’t even realise she was anxious and depressed! She used to crave sugar and refined carbohydrates and couldn’t imagine her life without them. Something had to change so she slowly cut back on the unhealthy foods and started eating a whole food diet. This was the start of her journey, along with nutritional supplements, functional medicine testing, self-care and self-development.
Anxiety and depression hit the family later with her daughter. It is through her that she found out about the gaps in the mental health system and how isolating it could be. Diet and nutrition were hardly mentioned. If you would like to know more about their experience, read here.
At Whole Food Nutrition, Sal has the time to truly get to the bottom of each person’s issues. She loves putting together the ‘puzzle pieces’ to form a real understanding of the true causes of health issues. She adopts a functional medicine approach to restoring your health and well-being which includes an investigation into your health history, presenting symptoms, as well as the use of the latest functional pathology testing to find the underlying root causes. This is a holistic, collaborative approach which focuses on addressing your diet, nutrient deficiencies, food sensitivities, lifestyle, mindset and supporting gut health. These are the key factors when treating anxiety, depression and ADHD.
At Sal’s seminars/workshops, she loves to educate on diet, nutrition and mental health which inspires others to take control of their own health. She is committed to changing your life in a genuine and supportive way.
You can be any age struggling with mental health issues – diet and nutrition can play a huge role.
