Have you had enough of trying to solve your health puzzles on your own? If you suspect that what you are eating is contributing to your symptoms but aren't sure what best to do next, or if you have been diagnosed with food intolerances or gluten sensitivity and would like some support with your health, I am here to help.
I'm Gemma, a nutritional therapist specialising in food reactivity and immune health. I work with adults helping them gain clarity on what they are reacting to and why, address any underlying factors that are exacerbating their reactivity, and enabling them to broaden their diet without fear of the consequences.
I offer one to one consultations either online, or from a clinic in Guildford.
I originally trained as a biomedical scientist and worked in communications roles for science-based companies.
I was drawn towards discovering how food and lifestyle could impact the immune system, after one daughter was diagnosed with autoimmune gluten reactivity, another with allergies and atopy and having lived myself with food sensitivity, histamine intolerance, autoimmunity and gut issues, following a long-term parasitic infection. Using diet and supplements alongside more conventional medications helped me improve my GI complaints, itching, joint aches, and underlying fatigue, and my knowledge has enabled me to support my family better. Along the way I have picked up a wealth of experience of navigating life with dietary restrictions.
I have a diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition, and continue to attend regular training to further my skills and knowledge.
Using a functional medicine approach, I will help you understand what is going on under the surface that could be contributing to your symptoms and reactivity, and support you to make changes to your diet and lifestyle to support your wellbeing.
By reviewing your completed health questionnaire and hearing your unique health story from the beginning I can start to piece together which systems in your body need support. I may also recommend functional testing from leading private providers to help tailor my advice.
We would work together to devise a personalised, evidence-informed, nutrition and lifestyle plan that will not only help your body start to function better, but also fit with your day-to-day routine and personal circumstances.

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.
I find that for lasting diet and lifestyle change, it is most effective to work with me for a period of at least twelve weeks. Packages of appointments are available. More information is available at: https://www.intunenutrition.co.uk/fees/
For those that would prefer to pay as they go, however, I do offer ad hoc appointments.
Initial consultation £115
Follow up consultation - £70
Coaching call or email support (20 mins) - £25
