Getting the most out of life - nutrition, health, wealth, sport and lifestyle
My name is Helen Barklam.
I am a nutritional therapist;
I love cycling and triathlon and
I am currently psyching myself
up to train for my second
Ironman in July. I worked in the
corporate world for more than
15 years; have had nice cars;
I have bought designer clothes;
I have dined in the best
restaurants; I travelled the
world and wanted for nothing
…and I have been broke.
Life has dished out some hard lessons along the way and I am now using those life changing experiences to help others to transform their lives for the better - from two different angles.
Being fit and healthy is a key part of having a happy and prosperous life and I run a health and sports nutrition consultancy to help with that. But then you also need to have the means to do what you want, so I coach people to earn a second income in the health, wellness and sports sector working completely flexibly around their current commitments – whether it is the kids, a job or career, studies.
I specialise in developing bespoke health, wellness and sports nutrition supplement packages to help with anything from IBS and high cholesterol to preparing, performing and recovering for sport.
So many people take suppplements and have no idea what they are taking or why they are taking them. So many people are flushing their money down the toilet, because the products they are taking are just not powerful enough to do what they need to do.
Take advantage of my FREE nutrition supplement consultation and make sure you are taking the right supplements for your needs - whether it is health or sport.
There's more to nutrition than green veggies
There's more to sports nutrition than bananas and carbs
Helen was trained in Functional Nutrition, which looks at nutrient deficiency and imbalance as the cause of many health and functional problems.
Perhaps you have severe energy level dips or constant fatigue. Or you might have digestive complaints. Or maybe you want to perform at your optimal level in your chosen sport or exercise.
The only way to sort out that imbalance or deficiency is through supplementation with quality products that contain the right levels of the nutrients you need. For some people that might be for a three month period, for others it might be more long term. Evey single one of us is different and our bodies all function very differently.
There's no point in taking fish oil if you don't know why you are taking it and if you aren't taking enough of the key nutrients your body needs.
How about B vitamins. B vitamin supplementation is the BIG thing with many people. But, do you really know how much you should be taking. If you have a B vitamin deficiency, have low levels of energy or do lots of exercise, you need to be replacing those B vitamins at very high levels. One table from the local supermarket's own brand B vitamin will only give you around a 10th of what you actually need.
There's just a couple of examples as to why it is a good to take a look at what you are taking, what levels you are taking them at and why you are taking them.
