Jane Snooks, BSc (Hons), DipCNM, mBANT, rCNHC - The Gut Life
I am a Nutritional Therapist based in both Brentwood and London (Liverpool St) having qualified at the College of Naturopathic Medicine.
Hippocrates once said that "all disease begins in the gut" and as my business name suggests this is where I specialise. As well as complaints relating to digestion, I also focus on women's health, increasing energy and weight loss.
Consultations are also available via Skype.
I am a member of BANT and registered with CNHC.

I have spent the last 12 years working in the finance sector in the City of London and have witnessed many people wanting to adopt a healthier lifestyle but not really sure where to start or how to fit it around their busy lifestyle. I have seen people suffering with many conditions and often not connecting them with their diet and lifestyle, unaware it may be part of the problem. Having first hand experience, I know the pressures and expectations of a ‘City Lifestyle’ and can work with you to allow for this wherever possible. I personally have suffered on and off with bouts of low mood and feel I am in a position of experience knowing what has worked for me.
I have a holistic approach to consultations which means I take a full case history reviewing the function of all parts of your body, as often, the root cause of a specific issue may arise from suboptimal function of something else. For example, a skin complaint may be the result of poor digestion in your gut or PMS may be connected to below par detoxification in your liver. I will also review external factors in your life, and of course your food and drink intake, that may be impacting you and aim to devise a nutrition and lifestyle plan specific to you and your situation.
