I graduated as a Nutritional Medicine Practitioner in Sydney, Australia before returning to practice in Brentwood, Essex, the place where I grew up.
I have a life long passion for nature as medicine, and gained nutritional knowledge from my early teens for my own health needs. Due to living overseas and travelling extensively I have real life experience of how different cultures use food and plants as medicine and the ways in which an individual's nutrient needs are met in line with the environment they live in.
I apply the Functional Medicine approach to my practice, where a person is seen as a 'whole', not just as an isolated set of symptoms. I'll spend time listening to your history and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic disease.
If deemed necessary, laboratory testing is recommended to gain a deeper understanding of the route cause of a health issue or imbalance in the body.
Each person will receive a personalised plan, recommending specific foods and supplemental nutrients to support and restore the proper physiological functioning of the body.
Programs can vary in duration depending on the needs, compliance and requirements of the patient.

I may recommend that certain tests or investigations be carried out in order to rule out certain causes for the presenting symptoms. And also to help identify causative factors, therefore enabling me to refine the treatment plan.
