I am a Naturopathic nutritionist and implement a non-drug medical model that uses diet and lifestyle as the primary tools to manage chronic disease and promote health and wellbeing.
The main health concerns that I support in clinic are Food intolerances/allergies testing, Oncology, Fatigue, Women's health and 'gut health' issues like Irritable B. Syndrome.
I have studied at the prestigious Penny Brohn clinic in Bristol and follow their nutritional intervention which was created in partnership with the Bristol Oncology and Haematology Centre and offers support to anyone preparing for, undergoing or recovering from chemo and radiotherapy. All my work to date has been heavily funded and I offer consultations freely to oncology clients.
Irritable B. Syndrome is very common in my clinic and my approach is to implement a 6 week FODMAP restricted diet followed by a 6 week (phase 2) diet which increases the foods in the diet. We then develop a maintenance diet at the end of the 12 weeks for you to follow at home. There is a specific supplement schedule to follow that is specific to each phase of the diet.
I am currently investigating the Dale Bresden protocol for Alzheimer's and hope to start implementing this soon with clients.
Please contact me if you want to discuss my approach for fatigue or women's health as they vary greatly from person to person.
I run a host of genetic testing and can streamline this for personal health or for athletic performance.
'' I visited Paul as I was experiencing fatigue & Exema, although I felt I lived an extremely healthy lifestyle. Paul helped me with my blood sugar level balancing, which meant that I was able to go longer through the day without getting hungry and exhausted. He also conducted some food intolerance tests, which identified that I had a high dairy and wheat intolerance. I excluded these from my diet and found that my Skin greatly improved. Plus I lost 6lbs, which was definitely a bonus! Thank you Paul for your expert guidance, enthusiasm and support''.

I initially approached Paul with high thyroid function and elevated cholesterol. Within two months my thyroid levels were in normal range and my meds were halved and due to be reduced further at the next check up. My cholesterol has also come down to 4.6 which is the lowest it it has been since the initially diagnosed it. I have other health issues that I am now working with Paul on but I cannot speak highly enough of the work that he has done to date.
