Topic: How diet, stress and hormones are at the core of our health

Speaker: Claire Snowdon-Darling – Balanced Wellness

Claire Snowdon-Darling is the founder and senior practitioner at Balanced Wellness, the creator of Functional Kinesiology and The Head of the College of Functional Wellness, a training School offering accredited training programmes in a new and exciting approach to health. She is regularly featured in the national press in publications such as Woman and Home, The Guardian, and Natural Health. She has also made appearances on Tv and radio.

Following her own extraordinary personal journey to overcome ill-health, trauma and depression, Claire was led to this career and embraces a “whole health” approach including diet, lifestyle, meditation, exercise, conscious relationship, and a non-toxic lifestyle.

Her specialist topics are menopause and hormonal imbalances, adrenal issues and chronic fatigue, along with emotional issues such as anxiety and the undiscussed connection between them all.

As a kinesiologist and nutritionist, Claire is passionate about breaking through the health myths that cloud the health industry and offering the truth at a time when people need information they can trust. Claire has experienced both first-hand and from working with thousands of people, that you have the power to change your health and emotional outlook, and create deep fulfilment by making small, educated decisions every day that ultimately allows you to reclaim your emotions, free you of symptoms and stop you being dependent on doctors and medication.

Claire’s talk will cover how diet and food intolerance are essential for health, what stress is really and how do we reduce it and how chronic conditions are linked to our hormones. The talk will contain useful tips and information for you to use personally and be able to pass on to your clients.
