Filomena Komodromou BA Hons, Dip CNM, mBANT
My name is Filomena Komodromou and in 2014 I decided to follow my passion and study to become a Nutritional Therapist.I have been trained in the principles of Functional Medicine, a science based approach to health and healing that looks at the body as a whole and assesses the underlying causes of symptoms that manifest themselves as disease. Rather than looking at symptoms in isolation, my aim through nutritional therapy, is to support underlying imbalances and address the root cause.
I am true believer that both the food that we eat and the lifestyle we lead, can make a real difference to health and wellbeing. My clients come to me with a whole range of issues. Being a busy mum of two young children I understand the strains and stresses of modern life. I am fully committed to ensuring that my clients come away from their consultation feeling empowered and equipped to make the changes to their diet and lifestyle in order to achieve optimum health. My focus is on long- term health and disease prevention and achieving wellbeing in body, mind and spirit.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied nutritional therapy for three years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, which is fully accredited by the NTEC (Nutritional Therapy Education Commission). Having had digestive issues all my life and not finding the answer in conventional medicine, following a more holistic route was something that came naturally to me and hence led me to want to study the fascinating world of nutritional therapy.

An initial consultation with Living Healthy Matters will last around 90mins and will be carried out in person at one of my clinic locations. Prior to your initial appointment I will send you a three day diet diary which you will need to bring with you to your initial appointment. During your initial consultation, I will take a detailed health assessment based on your medical history, your current health condition, food intake, lifestyle and health goals. We will also discuss any medical conditions you may have, and also any supplements or medications you are currently taking.
Within 48 hours I will then send you a detailed personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan of all the recommendations. The plan will include a detailed summary of your dietary changes including recipe ideas and factsheets to help support you. It will also include lifestyle recommendations and, if relevant, supplementation suggestions to support any nutritional imbalances. If appropriate, it may also include GP and/or Functional Testing recommendations in order to investigate your health concerns further.
Initial Consultations fees are £90
Follow up appointments last 45 mins and are usually recommended six weeks later, during which your progress will be monitored and if needed, amendments will be made to your nutrition and lifestyle plan. These can be carried out via telephone or in person.
Follow up fees are £60
I can also carry out consultations via Skype.
I am available to deliver a range of talks and workshops on nutrition and wellbeing across many settings. Whether in a corporate, school or community setting, I can tailor talks and workshops to your needs, interests and requirements.
I have been regularly seeing Filomena for the last couple of months since being diagnosed with a thyroid problem (hypothyroidism) and for help with boosting fertility and for general gut health.I decided to go down the nutritional route as I have always wanted to educate myself on what to eat and what not to eat.
Filomena was incredible, my first consultation lasted a few hours and went in to every depth possible- amazing! I then followed a plan made for me for six weeks to monitor how I felt- and as a result I am practically now dairy and gluten free- and caffeine free and feel much much better! Not only did the diet improve my gut health, (much less bloated) i generally felt more balanced and much more energised!! No longer would I hit the 3pm slump at work and crave chocolate or be hungry when I get home before dinner!
I have now had my follow up appointment and still ask for her advice as and when needed- that’s the great thing about Filomena, she really is there to support.
I would really recommend Filomena to anyone who needs advice on what to eat no matter what the reason is- its life changing!

Filomena was professional, extremely thorough and put me at ease.She investigated my entire lifestyle and medical conditions not just my diet. The consultation was not rushed and I was provided with an in-depth written plan including a raft of suggestions to improve my diet and my way of life. As a result my recent blood tests have shown a marked improvement. Thank you Filomena.

When I went to see Filomena for the first time, I had been suffering from a number of issues for almost 2 years. These were mainly gut issues, but there was a range of other symptoms that seemed unrelated but made daily life quite difficult when all combined. It was also very stressful as I was unable to find help from the NHS professionals I had seen and felt a bit helpless.
Filomena was extremely patient in listening to all symptoms and actually looking at the problem as a whole rather than just issue by issue. She carried out extensive research and recommended tests to help make a diagnosis. She put together a diet plan that really helped reduce my symptoms, but she also recommended other adjustments and therapies (such as acupuncture). A few months later, I feel much better and have a much more normal daily life. I also have more energy and am much more aware of the types of food that make me feel good
I would definitely recommend Filomena with no hesitation!

I would recommend Filomena as she has been really professional, friendly and has really helped me feel much better. She focused on the problems of my previous diet and helped me change them in an easy to follow way. Filomena devised a tailored nutritional plan just for me, which included suggestions and tips on how to deal with my stress and skin issues. I’m really happy I chose to see Filomena as she’s really helped me to change my life for the better.

Having suffered a number of symptoms, each one in themselves not major, but when they all flared-up regularly I couldn’t cope with day to day life. Each symptom had a different set of foods that were helpful yet would exacerbate the surrounding symptoms! To say I was confused about how to help myself was an understatement. Filomena patiently went through all the symptoms, did amazing research and came up with a plan that actually works for me. With her help, I can now eat a wide range of foods that are good at controlling my symptoms and in fact over the last 3 months I have seen a great improvement: I am more energised, sleep better and feel better! Filomena put together the pieces of the puzzle that were missing and the results are great! Thank-you x

I would like to let you know that my consultation with Filomena was a very good experience, she was so very helpful and understanding with my issues. She told me things about myself that I didn’t even know. I went with a couple of problems and here I am a few months down the line with my problems solved due to Filomenas dedication and eagerness to get to the root of my problems. Traveled 2 hours for my appointment and I was well worth the drive. Thank you so much Filomena

My overall experience with Filomena was very comforting, and reassuring. On my first visit I was not in a good place at all, I had multiple issues with my gut, bowels, etc. A lot was also connected to my mental state. Filomena reassured me that once I helped bring all that under control with meditation, the rest will surprisingly work more effectively along with the adjustment to my diet. By my next visit I felt more positive, relaxed, and certainly cleansed… my lifestyle has changed, thanks to Filomena, I received guidance and support through the first few weeks.. and this helped immensely. Once again I would like to say a huge thank u as I really don't know how I would have managed on my own…
