Nutritional Therapy is a complementary medicine which looks at each person as UNIQUE with their own individual genetic makeup, diet, lifestyle and stressors.
Nutritional Therapy uses a holistic 'whole body' approach and looks at each system of the body as interconnected.
As Therapists we work with you to find out the 'ROOT CAUSE' of your underlying your health issues. We go through a comprehensive case history, body system checklist and carry out testing to find out the why you've developed the symptoms you have today and how we can best address them.
We use a wide range of tools to assess your symptoms including comprehensive questionnaires and consultations, symptom measurement, GP blood tests, functional testing and more.
Nutritional therapy is suitable for ANYONE of any age, whether you have specific concerns to target or want to improve your overall well being.
Nutritional Therapy can benefit anyone and is personalised to your unique case history, symptoms and lifestyle. We can work with anyone of any age, although we have specialist areas that we feel most passionate about. Mine are listed below.
You do not need to have a diagnosed condition to work with us and you do not need to be unwell, we can also help you to optimise your wellbeing and performance.
We do not replace primary care practitioners e.g. GPs but we do work closely alongside them to ensure you're getting the best care possible.
From time to time we will make use of our wider network and refer to other holistic practitioners as part of your care, such as acupuncturists, chiropractors, massage therapists and counsellors.
Conditions or symptoms we can help with include, but are not limited to:
*Headaches or migraines
*Muscles aches and pains
*Skin complaints such as eczema and acne
*Asthma and bronchitis
*Arthritis (osteo, rheumatoid, psoriatic)
*Digestive issues such as bloating, constipation
*IBS and IBD
*Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
*Pre and post pregnancy care
If your condition or symptom is not listed here, please do not worry as it is not an exhaustive list.
By far the most common complaint these days is digestive issues. Stress, eating on the run and convenience foods all contribute to these issues and we could all some help to make sure our digestion is working to keep us healthy. The gut is vital to our overall health, which is why I start here with clients no matter what their condition. I can also help if you have diagnosed conditions such as IBS, IBD, GERD and more... I have a special interest in food intolerances and allergies and coeliac disease.
Skin health is a real passion of mine. Having had chronic eczema throughout my childhood and acne as a young adult, I truly empathise with how it can affect confidence and self esteem. The skin is a reflection of our overall health, so I use a 'root cause' approach to get to the bottom of why someone is experience skin issues.
I have a special interest in CFS having experienced this illness personally. I have a deep understanding of how debilitating this condition can be and I can offer tools to help you to rebuild your health.
PMS? Acne? Irregular cycles? PCOS? Endometriosis? Fertility struggles? These are all signs something is out of balance with your hormones . I can help you to bring back balance and get to the underlying cause of these issues.
As a Nutritional Therapist I gained a diploma in 'Naturopathic Nutrition'.
This means that I take a 'food first' approach and follow these 6 principles as my foundation.
