Natural Healthiness

Hello, I'm Andrea Bremner, the founder of Natural Healthiness. 🌿 At Natural Healthiness, we are committed to transforming lives through a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. My unique blend of Nutrition, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Biomechanics sets us apart in the field of health and wellness. 🌱 Nutrition for Optimal Health: I embrace Hippocrates' wisdom that "food is thy medicine." As a Nutritional Therapist, I'm dedicated to helping individuals overcome modern-day health challenges, such as obesity, diabetes, and anxiety, by making meaningful dietary and lifestyle changes. 🧠 NLP for Mindset and Motivation: My expertise extends beyond nutrition; I'm also a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. This powerful combination allows me to offer professional nutrition counselling, enabling clients to reprogram their minds, eliminate limiting beliefs, and develop strong motivational strategies. 🦢 Biomechanics for Whole-Body Wellness: My commitment to holistic wellbeing extends to your feet. We provide custom-moulded insoles and orthotics to support pain-free living and total body wellness. My Journey: My passion for nutrition and lifestyle change was born out of my desire to heal myself and those I care about. I've faced health challenges, battled autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue, and anxiety, and found my way to vibrant health without medication. With an MSc in Psychology and Physiology from Loughborough University and a background as a former national squad gymnast and county heptathlete, I bring extensive knowledge and experience to our practice.
