Helen Scarisbrick BSc (Hons), mBANT, CNHC registered
... specialising in functional testing, particularly in relation to problems with fatigue, mood & digestion.
Getting to the root cause of health issues (as opposed to just dealing with symptoms) - I have trained using the Functional Medicine approach, and test investigations may help provide the information needed.
I've got a special interest in the gut & it's functional problems, and I've worked with a number of teenagers with fatigue and poor recovery following illness & infections.
My approach includes helping you set realistic health goals & supporting your motivation, using coaching techniques seamlessly woven into the consultation process.

Changing my eating habits helped me cope & perform better - juggling a exhasuting technical job with travel & home life - first-hand experience of the health effects of better nutrition
The nutritional therapy process is often one of detective work, the therapist & client working together to piece together the jigsaw. This is when functional testing can make the difference, and help point the right direction.
For example, energy problems, or fatigue, can sometimes relate to a number of different issues:
- Thyroid problems,
- Adrenal problems,
- Digestion issues,
- low levels of nutrients that the body needs to produce energy .... and there may be others.
So, do you wake up tired in the morning? feel Wired & Tired all day?
Is your tummy in trouble? or your gut irritable?
