  • I know that kids get fluoride treatments but, recently my dentist has been recommending them for me too.  Is this really necessary?
  • How often do I really need to brush and floss to maintain my teeth?

Starting in 2014 Dr. Nicholas became a coach with the Dental Success Institute.  Here he coaches numerous dentists to business as well as clinical success. Both he and his clients feel that the two should go hand in hand.

Most recently, Dr. Nicholas has opened the Dental Assistant School of Maryland.  Here, he and his team are trying to give aspiring dental assistants the very best didactic and practical education to succeed at their chosen profession.

Angela Emmerton, Clinical Nutritionist and Founder of Nutritional Matters, which helps people solve their health problems through practical nutritional solutions, so they can feel the best they can be joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Nutrition Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Angela Emmerton discuss the following:

  • There’s so many diets today and it’s confusing knowing what to eat – so how do we eat well for good health?
  • So how do we get back to basics and eat ‘real wholefood'?
  • In your expert opinion what is the key ingredient which keeps people on track and eating well for life?
  • What if you’re on a low-budget – can you still eat well?
  • What are the foods we need to avoid for our health sake?
  • Finally, how do you encourage your patients to eat well for life?

 

As an ambassador for ‘That Sugar Film’, Angela believes – and the science shows – that good health is the product of good nutrition.

Angela has spent over 10 years studying all things nutrition, including the eastern philosophy of food as medicine and combined this with studies in social sciences and counselling.

Her practice is under-pinned by the latest evidence-based nutritional medicine, following scientific research on nutrition, nutrients and positive lifestyle practices. However, having spent over 20 years in the corporate working world she understands the effect modern day life has on a person’s health. Her approach is based on ‘keeping it real’ and her recommendations are informed by reality and practical for everyday busy people.

Angela work’s in private practice at McMahon’s Point and in Sydney’s CBD and helps people solve their health problems and transform their lives, turning their health around, from symptoms including; excess weight, hormonal imbalances, fatigue, sleep, anxiety, depression, poor digestion (IBS), food intolerances, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, thyroid dysfunction, etc.

Angela continues to be called upon to provide her expertise in this field of nutritional medicine.  During 2016 she was selected as the nutritionist for Todd Sampson to undertake a nutritional dietary assessment, as part of Todd’s preparation for the six part TV series ‘Bodyhack’.  

Angela is also an advisory team member for ‘SugarByhalf’, a not-for-profit organisation who aim to reduce Australia’s sugar consumption and help combat childhood obesity and chronic disease.

As a trusted advisor, Angela speaks to variety of audiences, empowering them to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing through workshops, corporate talks, presentations and in-service education to complimentary healthcare practitioners.

In addition, Angela facilitates movie screenings of ‘That Sugar Film’ and discussions, for business groups, workplaces and communities, providing educational tools and techniques for people to make informed choices to benefit their own health.

No two DNAs are the same, making your nutritional requirements unique.

Angela’s mission is to transform peoples lives by offering practical nutritional solutions, tailored to each unique ‘individuals’ need, so they go on to lead productive and balanced healthy lives.
