One-size-fits-all does not work when it comes to diet and lifestyle change. We are all unique, not only in our physiology and biochemistry, but also in our relationships with food.
The one-to-one nutritional therapy process takes you as a whole into account. Emotions as well as physical imbalances are considered and the aim is to discover what the underlying causes are for loss of wellbeing. This is done by focussing on the different systems of the body that are influenced by nutritional status and lifestyle. This model for health care is called functional medicine and your story is central to the process.
At your appointment I listen to your case history and consider your current diet and lifestyle. Once we establish your goals we devise a strategy for improving your health and a diet and lifestyle programme is put together that is realistic and sensible. Sometimes tests or supplements are recommended. The tests I most commonly recommend include nutritional status profiles, comprehensive stool analysis (including assessment of your gut microbiome), small intestine bacterial overgrowth, food intolerance or sensitivity, homocysteine levels, stress hormone panels, total thyroid screen, functional blood chemistries, urinary organic acid analysis and specific genetic profiles.
My job is not to diagnose, claim to treat, or advise against medication; I prefer to work in harmony with conventional medicine.
I regularly see clients who require nutritional support to target fatigue, digestive issues and autoimmune conditions. You can read feedback from some of my clients here
The majority of my clinic work is online – by Skype or FaceTime. I am based in Twickenham for face-to-face appointments.
