Sarah Macklin is a high flying model, turned nutritionist that, like me is an omega 3 nerd, and has a passion for guiding people in the fashion industry towards better health and healthier relationships with food. Her NPO The Be Well Collective is a wonderful organisation that does just this.

Finding your 'why' in dark times
I have received so many messages in the last week or two from people who have found that they are starting to lose their way again as the headlines begin to tell tales of despair and uncertainty. These dark and challenging times are pulling many people off track and many of us are losing our commitment to a healthier lifestyle, and turning to old habits to find comfort. The simple act of remembering why you started, re tapping into the emotions that accompanied that will be your rocket fuel that will help you to break through.

In this fascinating session we cover the shortcomings of many common home tests, but also look at the level of clinical insight that can be gained from regulated clinician only testing that Emily offers in her clinic. A fascinating session for the nutrition nerds!
