Who We Are
Gwenright Nutrition was set up by Gwen Enright, DipNT, MSc, mNTOI. Gwen has a Masters in Food Science, Technology and Nutrition from DIT, a Dietary Counselling certificate, and a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, both from IHS in Dublin. Gwen worked as a laboratory technician for 8 years and has been teaching for a number of years.
As well as seeing clients on a 1:1 basis, Gwen also does talks, such as one for a detox workshop in December 2014 in collaboration with SJW Pilates and Completely Yoga, or ESB workers. Gwen is also running Healthy Eating classes in Naas, Kildare.
Gwen regularly attends training days and talks to stay up to date in the field of Nutritional Therapy, and is registered with the NTOI (Nutritional Therapists of Ireland), and gets to learn from Nutritional Speakers, such as Patrick Halford (see photo), Marilyn Glenville and Alessandro Ferretti. Her special interests are women's and babies' health and nutrition, as well as the area of nutrigenomics (the link between nutrition and genetics).
Why Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is based on Functional Medicine, which looks at the body as a whole. It is based on the belief that all bodily systems are linked, and that imbalances in one will affect others. Rather than diagnosis, it looks at prevention of disease by balancing any imbalances found, through food, lifestyle changes and supplements.
