The foods we eat, how well we digest and our lifestyles have a profound effect on our health, mood and energy levels. Excitingly, science now backs this up.
I’m deeply interested in the reason why people have the symptoms they do and aim to act as your health detective – exploring any tiny clues I can find that can help us detect the possible root cause of your symptoms. We will work together to create a personalised plan of manageable diet and lifestyle changes to support optimal health and wellbeing.
I have a BSc Degree in Nutritional Medicine and practice a Functional Medicine approach –a whole-person, science-informed approach. This way of working treats each person individually, focusing on the unique factors that may be creating or exacerbating your symptoms or health condition. I have worked as a health care practitioner for over 30 years and teach nutrition to doctors and medical students.
I have seen amazing changes in the health of my clients over the 12 years I have been in practice and hope to do the same for you.
