Welcome to Gut Philosophy, I’m Elena, a data-driven Functional Nutritionist. I’m focused on taking your health to the next level through personalised nutrition, functional testing, supplementation & lifestyle programmes.
In my practice I use genetic and functional testing, wearable data devices and professional supplementation range to optimise your health and monitor your progress .
The examples of functional tests I'm offering include Functional Blood Test, Organic Acid Test, comprehensive hormonal test (e.g. DUTCH), comprehensive stool testing (including gut microbiome), heavy metals & organic toxins testing.
I work with a wide range of health concerns, all of which were shown to have a strong link to the gut health:
- Gut related symptoms (bloating, irregular bowel movements)
- Food sensitivities
- Skin issues
- Weight management
- Metabolic imbalances
- Thyroid related concerns
- Female hormonal imbalances
- Autoimmune conditions
- Mental health and mood dysregulation
If you have a health condition, specific goal or simply want to improve your overall nutrition, I’m offering a complimentary 15 min discovery call. You’ll have an opportunity to discover how I work and discuss your health concerns.

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.
