Jenny Conway- Digestion & Autoimmune Specialist (BScOT, DipION, CNHC, BANT HCPC)
Do you struggle with persistent gut health concerns, an autoimmune disease or chronic, long-term fatigue? Would you like to understand why you or your children are unwell and what you can do about it?
My name is Jenny Conway and I am a professionally trained, registered and fully insured Nutritional Therapist and Occupational Therapist. I provide expert Nutrition and Lifestyle advice to clients with a range of health issues and have a special interest in supporting those with gut health concerns, autoimmune diseases and long-term fatigue.
Having struggled greatly with my own health as a child, I turned to Nutritional Therapy and have never looked back. If you are fed up of feeling sick and tired, making small changes to your diet and lifestyle can profoundly influence your health, vitality and energy: how you look, think and feel. As a Nutritional Therapist, I aim to unravel your health story, empower you to understand your symptoms or diagnosis, identify contributing factors, and support you to make informed choices to improve your health. All advice is tailor-made to address the root cause of your symptoms and can thereby empower you to achieve optimum health and well-being naturally. I have seen incredible changes in my own health and in the health of my clients and hope to do the same for you.
Every meal is an opportunity to heal. Making small changes to your diet and lifestyle can lead to profound changes in your health, vitality and energy: how you look, think and feel.
