Clemmie Macpherson - Inflammatory Bowel Disease Specialist
Hi, I’m Clemmie and I help improve the quality of life of people with IBD. I am a nutritional therapist, and founder of the Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (NALM) Clinic.
I don’t believe that gastrointestinal problems have to be a life sentence. If you are suffering symptoms, I know you can overcome them and get your life back.
I’ve been there, where you are, feeling helpless, bloated, exhausted and wondering how you are going to live the rest of your life feeling this way.
Following health problems and lifesaving surgery to remove my colon, I continued to experience problems for years, despite being given the all clear. I became ill again after moving to London and working in a stressful PR job. I felt bloated and exhausted all the time, nauseous whenever I ate, I lost weight, started losing my hair and generally felt terrible; I didn’t know what to do. I got some help and made some simple changes to my diet and lifestyle and I immediately started to feel better; my bloating reduced, I had so much more energy and I got my life back. That experience was so powerful that I quit my job and trained as a nutritional therapist to learn more about how food and lifestyle can impact our health.
I never want anyone to feel the way I felt again which is why I am now helping so many people, just like you, who are suffering with gastrointestinal symptoms, to get to the root cause of your problems, help you overcome them and change your life forever too.
I want to help you but I know it can be daunting to know who to work with which is why I always welcome the opportunity to speak to potential new clients briefly on the phone before any appointments are made. This give us opportunity to find out more about each other and decide the best route forward for you. I also appreciate you may have questions before committing to the process so please get in touch to book in a free call.
