Marilia Chamon, Gut Health Specialist, DipNT MFNTP
I am a fully qualified and registered Nutritional Therapist specialised in Gut Health.
Through my own health journey I learnt that our physical and mental wellbeing is intrinsically connected to the health of our gut. Our digestion is our first point of contact with the external world, it protects us from external invaders and it is also where 70% of our immune system resides. Maintaining a healthy gut with the right balance of gut bacteria is vital as when that gets out of balance a multitude of health problems can emerge. Simply put, a healthy gut is the core foundation for a healthy body and mind.
Clients come to see me after struggling with their health for a number of years and when conventional medicine fails to assist. I apply the principles of Functional Medicine and Naturopathic Nutrition in my practice, which aim to identify the core dysfunction and imbalances that underlie or cause a specific health condition. My starting point is why is that happening to you and not only what symptoms you have.
I believe that understanding the science of what is causing imbalances and dysfunctions is key to making and maintaining dietary and lifestyle changes. Explaining the physiological mechanisms behind your health concern is a vital part of each consultation and I hope to educate and empower you to take control of your health and feel confident about your food and lifestyle choices.

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.
Initial Consultation £150
The initial consultation can take up to 90 minutes. During this time we will dive deep into your current concerns and symptoms and I will provide a detailed and personalised plan to kick start your health transformation including dietary and nutritional advice, lifestyle, supplement and functional testing recommendations.
Follow-up Consultation £75
Follow up consultations typically last around 45 minutes. I recommend you book your follow up consultation 4 weeks after your initial consultation as this will give us time to review your progress and make any necessary amendments as well as adjust for any new concerns that you may wish to discuss.
Packages are available and start from £250.
Express Consultation £100
A one-off 60 minute consultation suited to those who are interested in optimising their wellbeing but do not have a specific health concern to address.
Guided Food Shopping £100
Let’s go grocery shopping together.
Food shopping can be daunting and confusing for many but I am here to help you navigate the supermarket aisles and teach you how to identify false health claims.
To get started please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a complimentary 15-minute call to discuss your current health concerns and how I can help you on your journey.
