Welcome to Abundant Health Nutrition
My name is Marie McDermott and I set up Abundant Health Nutrition after I qualified as a Nutritional Therapist from the College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2008.
I believe we all can achieve abundant health through the foods we eat as well as our life style.
Many people are needlessly suffering chronic illnesses that could be helped so much by dietary and life style changes.
Every second person I meet has some form of digestive issue ranging from mild heart burn to ulcerative colitis and everything in between. If your digestive system is not working correctly you cannot get the nutrients from your food, that fuel every process in your body. This, in turn can lead to low energy and many other health problems.
For many of the one in five people in Ireland who are overweight, the diet industry is failing. Magazines and books continuously promote the next fad diet and it’s easy to become disillusioned by the trend of yo-yo dieting. I work with clients to devise an individual diet tailored to their specific needs and lifestyle.
Alternately you may wish to join one of my Zest4life weight loss and vitality classes. A new weight-loss programme that educates people on how to lose weight, maintain that weight-loss and improve health. This new Zest4life programme has already proved to be highly successful. In addition to weight-loss, those completing the programme have reported added health benefits such as greater energy, lower cholesterol, healthier skin, greater mental alertness, better mood and improved digestion.

Another area I see a big increase in is stress. We all have very busy life styles these days, juggling family and jobs. Very few people allow themselves some relaxation or down time. Stress has a huge impact on your digestive system and mental health. This is the main reason I also training in Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage. Abhyanga is an extremely relaxing full-body oil massage using medicated herbal oils for rectifying imbalances in the body. This massage reduces stress, tones and relaxes muscles, improves immunity, relieves stiffness in the joints and increases energy and vitality, and assists in the elimination of toxins.
