Aira Mahandru, BA (Hons), DipNT, mBANT, mNNA, mIFM, CNHC
I am a Functional Medicine Practitioner and a registered Nutritional Therapist working with women and men who are motivated improve their health and wellbeing. My aim is to get to the cause of why you started not feeling well and what exactly triggered the symptoms that you are experiencing.
From your first appointment you will walk out with a personalised matrix of your underlying issues knowing what to concentrate on. Everyone is different and unique, and my plan is tailored specifically for you. My aim is to work together with you to help you shift from illness to wellness.
For weight loss programmes I use the Metabolic Balance nutritional programme that has been built on 25 years of scientific research. This programme will help you rebalance and reset your metabolism, resulting in weight loss. It is a unique individualised food plan calculated on your own blood haematology and biochemistry test results, analysed by a sophisticated computer programme. Please see http://www.amnutrition.uk/weight-loss/ for further details.
