Adele Dobson BA(Hons), AdvDipNutMed, mNNA, mIFM
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.

Naturopathic Nutrition Association
The Naturopathic Nutrition Association was formed by a group of Nutritional Therapists who passionately believe in the benefits of the naturopathic approach to nutrition. By working alongside a UK regulatory body for Naturopathy and other naturopathically-minded professional associations, the NNA aims to both promote to the public the benefits of naturopathic nutrition and encourage Nutritional Therapists to develop further therapeutic skills.
Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
