As a Nutritional Therapist I consider the whole person in order to optimise health. This includes how a person absorbs and digests food as well as the physiological and biochemical processes. A person's environmental, emotional, family and medical history are looked at alongside what the person may actually be eating. From the information that I gather I put together a nutritional report based on your individual needs.
Nutritional Therapy can help and support people of all ages with a variety of conditions. Once we understand what is causing your issues we can supporting the processes of the body that move towards balance and health.
Functional testing may be one of the things that I recommend. This could include testing for toxic metals, biochemical markers, metabolic function, genetic polymorphisms and stool analysis, to name but a few.
I have always been interested in food and health and Having trained as a professional chef wanted to learn in depth about the connection between the two. This led me to study at The College of Naturopathic Medicine in London gaining a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy.
