Lisa Goodkind, Nutrition & Functional Medicine, BSc, Dip (NT), Reg BANT, mIFM,
I am a registered nutritional therapist and functional medicine practitioner. I help people who are struggling with Autoimmune Disease and Chronic Conditions.
I help my clients by understanding their health history in detail and in particular working back to the time that they last felt well. By understanding the timeline of someone's life and health stresses I forensically investigate the factors that may have contributed to someone's departure from wellness. This allows me to unwind their body's dysregulation and start to find ways to restore their health.
The tools that I use are bespoke and evidence based dietary protocols, supplements, and lifestyle changes.
My own interest in health started when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, (RA) and managed to achieve remission. Following this I trained in nutrition and functional medicine before moving on to set up my international practice helping others.
I understand the despair that comes with the diagnosis of a seemingly incurable condition. I've experienced for myself what is possible when you set your mind to self-healing and you make the dietary and lifestyle changes that are necessary to help to achieve this. I have an unshakeable belief in the power of nutrition and functional medicine which is why I have chosen to use these tools to transform the lives of others.

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 have a range of programmes on offer. Please contact me for a free discovery call so that we can discover whether we are the right fit for each other and what would be the best package for you.
Times outside of those shown are available by special appointment.
