About me

I’m Anna - BiomedicNutritionist® and am able to support Fatigue, Energy, Histamine, Histamine Intolerance, Unresolved & Complex Health Issues, Gastrointestinal Health & Many General Health Conditions.

I am located on the beautiful Wirral Peninsular, Wirral in the North West of England, very close to Liverpool and Cheshire UK. I am available online, from the comfort of your own home, to anywhere in the world.

I am a Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner qualified by Masters degree with Distinction. I practice Nutritional Therapy with diet, lifestyle changes, nutraceutical supplementation and functional testing (when required).

​Combining my background as a Chartered Scientist, over 25 years as a Biomedical Scientist, specialising in Cellular Pathology, and over 20 years as a mental health volunteer with my training in nutrition, I understand how the human body works, how it uses nutrients, and how we can feel as a human being. This enables me to understand how to support body function, wellbeing and mental health with a nutrition and lifestyle approach. I recognise that the human body is a complex multi functioning interactive system.

With so much nutrition information online, such as what is the best diet, gut health guidance, blood sugar balancing, fatigue fixes and histamine help, along with much conflicting information, it can be confusing to choose what’s right and what isn’t…

​But what there is not a lot of information about… is you, your health, your diet, your circumstances and your lifestyle. We are all individuals with different needs and requirements. 

Working with me gives you so much more than generic information found online. My Nutritional Therapy takes everything into consideration; evaluating your health, circumstances and lifestyle, in addition to looking out for those areas you can’t see, such as the way your body works on the inside, to give you unwavering support and help you move in the right direction.

With me as your Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner we would be working together to make an investment in you, your health and your lifestyle. You can’t find that online.

My Journey

It is also from my own health experiences that I have developed knowledge and insight which I can use to support your health. Brought about by my own longer term health journey I have experienced Fatigue, Long-term Fatigue, Post Viral Fatigue, Histamine Conditions, Histamine Intolerance, Mast Cells and considered my own genetic response to nutrients. I have much insight, an in-depth understanding, and importantly my own health experiences and ways of navigating in the world in these specialist areas. I am in an ideal position to understand others' and the impact of those conditions in daily life. 

I have also studied histamine intolerance in-depth during my Nutritional Therapy Master’s degree and completed my Masters dissertation on 'Experiences of Living with Histamine Intolerance'.
