ABOUT DANA CHAPMAN NUTRITION
Feel better. Think better. Perform better.
How long have you been suffering from depression or anxiety? Perhaps you have a diagnosis of neurodiversity and that drives anxiety, poor eating habits and being burnt out. Understanding WHY you have these conditions is my first aim and I love exploring the link between mental health and gut health because the two are so intertwined.
Feeling low or having suboptimal health is not normal, and you shouldn't accept it.
Mental health is complex, it's not as simple as a lack of happy hormones. Years of research have helped us understand that mental health has genetic and environmental components. You may have a genetic predisposition to depression or anxiety, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will get it, or that that is the sole reason for your poor mental health. The environment has a large role to play, and this is made up of diet, lifestyle and stressors.
I love to explain how our bodies work, and uncover why you may be feeling the way you are - getting to the root cause of your symptoms. Once we understand these we can together work on a nutrition, supplement and lifestyle plan to help get you feeling better than you do today.
Symptoms are the body's way of showing us that something isn't working correctly. Anxiety, depression, brain fog, physical and mental exhaustion and burnout are all signs of this. The work is designed to help your employees avoid these symptoms and live a healthy life that benefits them and the business.
It’s okay not to be okay, but you CAN feel like yourself again!

How can nutritional therapy help?
There is so much conflicting information out there with regards to our health. Nutritional Therapy should be your first point of call when you have concerns about symptoms which aren’t being well managed with medication.
Poor Mental Health?
If you are concerned about the changes in your mood, behaviour or thinking it might be worth looking at the nutrients you are putting in your body.
Experiencing bloating, indigestion, new intolerances to food, changes in your appetite or irregular bowel functions a nutritional therapist could help.
Bad nutrition can easily lead to constant mood swings, a lack of motivation, be quick to irritability and more mood focused issues.
If you are noticing issues in your sleep from difficulties in getting to sleep to interrupted or unrefreshing sleep, then get in touch for further discussions.
Work on recovery from frequent infections, lingering illnesses and repeated respiratory and/or stomach bugs.
Get support on any hormonal, and reproductive symptoms you may be experiencing from painful/irregular periods, to menopausal symptoms.

helping you care for your mental health
I am Dana Chapman, founder of DC Nutrition. My aim is to offer scientific, evidence-based advice. Helping you discover how your body works and helping you achieve vibrant health today and in the future. This includes nutrition, supplement, lifestyle and personalised testing to support you and your body's needs.
It's not just about food.
The Gut Brain axis is paramount in governing how we feel, we eat well we feel good, we feel bad we eat poorly. It is not as simple as that, but nutritional therapy is only part of the answer. I am able to combine not only nutritional therapy, but also elements of mental health wellbeing, exercise, NLP and much more.
The Gut Safe Podcast with Dana
Coming Soon! Watch this space for a new nutritional health podcast looking at all things gut health and how this can contribute to your own mental wellbeing.
Dana was recommended to me by a friend as I had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and after a year of medical treatment my condition wasn't improving.
Dana helped by explaining what was likely to be happening in my gut (something no one else had done) and how I could start to repair the damage by changing my eating regime and using suggested beneficial supplements. She also went through techniques with me to help combat my anxieties associated with my condition.
Over the past six months I have seen noticeable improvements which has given me much needed hope as I was facing the possibility of having an operation. In that way Dana's advice has been life changing and quite honestly the most valuable education I have ever had regarding my health
