Hey! I'm Alex
I have a passion for helping people get well. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than helping others to overcome chronic health conditions and return to optimum wellness.
One of the things I'm often asked is "What made you want to be a nutritionist?"
I've always had a fascination with food, especially cooking and eating. My keen interest in health and nutrition began after facing my own personal health challenges when I was 28 years old. I had typical I.B.S. symptoms like bloating, cramping and loose stools as well as fatigue, anxiousness and sleep issues. Unfortunately the conventional medicine route wasn't able to resolve my health problems, which led me to seek the expertise of a local nutritional therapist.
After just one consultation she was able to recognise my symptoms were caused by a yeast overgrowth (or candidiasis as it is more commonly known). My gut problems were exacerbated by wheat and other gluten grains. Not only that, I also had a genetic problem that affected my methylation, which was the root cause of all my health issues.
After following her dietary, lifestyle and supplement recommendations, my condition improved within two months. Slowly but surely my other symptoms started to resolve and I felt better and better as each week passed. This relatively quick and easy recovery back to optimum health made me appreciate the power of food as medicine and similarly the potentially negative impact on my health that certain foods and lifestyle choices can have.
I am incredibly fortunate to be in a profession that I love and am deeply passionate about. Being able to help so many people recover from illness and optimise their health is the most satisfying job in the world as far as I'm concerned!
I want to make it as easy as possible for you to take back your health through guided nutrition and lifestyle advice. I believe in order to achieve wellness, you must first establish the cause of the imbalance. Treating symptoms does not fix the problem, it is merely like putting a plaster over a wound, whilst you can’t see the wound, it is still there.
My approach to nutritional therapy and wellness encompasses the functional medicine model. By shifting the traditional disease-centred focus of medical practice to a more patient-centred approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
I spend time listening to my client's histories and looking at the interactions amongst genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist having completed my three year professional diploma in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy at the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
I'm a full member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), and I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the only register for Nutritional Therapy recognised by the Department of Health.
Most recently I have gained accreditation as a SIBO certified practitioner by internationally renowned Dr. Alison Sibecker. She is a pioneer in treating patients with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) which is the leading cause of I.B.S. The knowledge I have gained from this course has enabled me to offer the most up to date and most effective treatment for many I.B.S. sufferers.
I have completed a four week specialist accreditation in SIBO treatment and management which can be the key to addressing bloating, constipation, loose stools and other gut problems.
My main areas of expertise lies in anything related to the gut including yeast overgrowth such as candidiasis, parasite infections and SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). I am also experienced in dealing with 'Adrenal Fatigue', anxiousness and MTHFR polymorphisms.
