I am a registered nutritional therapist and a qualified Functional Medicine practitioner. Initially, I started out with a 3-year intensive study course at the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
The longer I worked post studies, the more complex health issues I began to attract so I needed some additional clinical knowledge to support my patients. The best platform to do this was with the Functional Medicine University in America where I graduated as a functional medicine therapist in 2017. This gave me access to some incredible investigative and diagnostic tools and has been instrumental in helping me achieve better clinical results.
In 2018 I enhanced my skill set by studying with Dr. Klinghardt who is an internationally renowned physician in the treatment of highly complex patients. His protocols and specialised system of muscle response testing have revolutionised the way I approach complex health conditions.
On the back of this, I joined the London Clinic of Nutrition which is the leading clinic in the country at treating Lyme/Borreliosis and chronic health conditions. This platform has given me the opportunity to work alongside some of the best clinicians in the country and is in line with my vision of absolutely mastering the leading diagnostic and treatment strategies available for helping patients with chronic health concerns.
My philosophy is based on the belief that we all have the ability and potential to create a life full of energy and vitality. Life is for thriving, not just surviving. Food and a good lifestyle is the bedrock of great health and life satisfaction. It pains me to see someone extract anything less than absolute total fulfillment from life. Yet, all too often our health stands in the way.
My own health journey started at 23 when my life became completely governed by poor mental health. At the time I wouldn't have been able to tell you the benefit of eating an apple over a Mars bar and certainly would not have thought that food or lifestyle was a factor in how I experienced the world.
In desperation, I began to devour & apply nutrition and naturopathic books and the result was nothing short of miraculous. It took time and work but it has cemented in me a profound respect in the incredible power of food and lifestyle medicine.
Paul lives in Hereford with his beautiful daughter & wife. He and his wife are both passionate about organic food, juicing, raw food & holistic living.
