BSc Nutritional Medicine, Thames Valley University
The body is an interconnected dynamic web of processes which depend on nutrients to run well. Nutritional therapy can help many conditions by addressing lifestyle and diet and providing targetted supplement support. Functional medicine looks for the root cause of health problems by investigating nutrient levels, hormones, microbial imbalances, inflammatory markers through blood, urine and stool tests. Genetic information can also help to guide the design of an individual programme. This practice works with a wide variety of health concerns including mood and brain function, energy and sleep problems, food intolerances, digestive health, detoxification, cardiovascular health and many more.
I work with patients of all ages, including children. Most come directly but some are referred by GPs or other health practitioners. Nutritional medicine is well equipped to address chronic debilitating conditions, preventative medicine and health optimisation.
Ongoing specialist training is a key part of keeping up to date, particularly in areas relating to mood and brain function.
