Health 4 U - Our Story
My name is Sinéad O’Flynn, and I am the founder and director of Health 4 U. I have always had a passion for supporting people to live a balanced and healthy life since starting my career journey as a nurse.
I originally trained as a nurse in Manchester over 20 years ago, then worked in both Ireland and Australia in roles such as Clinical Nurse Specialist, Research Nurse, Nurse Advisor, Clinical Nurse Manger, and Assistant Director of Nursing.
I am an avid writer for various nursing journals and publications, a peer reviewer, and am also on the editorial board for nursing supplements.
A little bit about myself
Originally from Kildare, I have been living in Cork since 2008, having met my husband on my travels across Australia. We now have 2 beautiful children & 2 dogs who teach us every day how to live in the moment! As a family we are huge advocates for animal welfare & autism awareness.
I started my career as a nurse over 20 years ago and have worked in Ireland, the UK and Australia in acute hospitals and primary care settings specialising in areas such as Gastrointestinal Disorders, Cardiovascular Risk Reduction, Autoimmune Disorders and Research, and most recently in the area of the microbiome.
My specialty roles in nursing led to my passion with nutrition, however I often felt restricted in being able to truly provide this aspect of care to my patients. Hence I decided to study Naturopathic Nutrition, so that I could combine my current expertise with a more holistic view of the body, enabling me to educate and support people to find the balance that will allow them to live their best life.
How does the process work?
What to expect ...
Contact us & we’ll organise a date & time to call you to discuss the services best suited to your health care needs.
The initial consultation takes 1.5 hours, where we talk through your current & previous medical history, family history, lifestyle, work, social life, any existing symptoms, and will discuss your goals so that we can develop a plan which is attainable for you. We are all about being realistic at Health 4 U – we understand that your plan needs to be realsitic so that you can maintain a healthier lifestyle.
Within a few days we will email you your Personalised Nutritional & Lifestyle Plan. If you have any queries or require further support/advice you can contact us at any time during consultations.
Follow up consultations are recommended to measure your progress. Balancing our bodily systems take time & we can not work on them all at once. We recommend a follow up period of 6-8 weeks after your initial consult. We will review your progress, discuss any new symptoms and provide you with an updated Nutritional & Lifestyle Plan.
"If you have come seeking support and advice, then you are already on the right road to recovering your body, and together we will work to find the best plan of nutritional care that will work for you, around both your personal and work life."
