About me

I am a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach with a special interest in gut-related issues. 

I use a functional medicine model to look for the root cause of the disease in the whole body and provide each patient with a personalised plan designed to redress their issues and help them return to their best. I understand that patient's many symptoms are very likely to be interrelated, often with a common cause.

I love the feeling of having helped clients and my passion is gut health. If you cannot eat, digest, absorb, detoxify and eliminate properly then good health is often out of reach. This is why I work with most patients’ "gut first" and then, once function is optimal, I address any residual symptoms. Often other indications of disease disappear, as the body is able to correct the root cause. When it receives the right nutrients, it can remedy itself more effectively.

Testimonials:

BP 2022 (diverticular disease) Melody was a delight to work with. Our phone consultations were great, she sent me loads of links and information and I certainly felt much better with the advice and information she gave me. I highly recommend her.

KR 2022 (upper digestion) From the first interaction with Melody, she put me at ease and I felt very confident in telling her all about my disease. I found her very informative and she explained things to me really clearly and I trusted her advice from the outset. All sessions were well prepared for and there was lots of information sharing and information that I was able to download and take away with me, over the three sessions. I tried all advice that Melody gave to help me see what would work for me and as a result, my issues have severely reduced and I am feeling so much better. I would really recommend Melody and her service.

AJ 2021 (reflux or GORD) Great experience, support as of when required, clear protocols, food planning and a list of foods provided for gut healing.
