Sandra James ND, NT Dip CNM, MBANT, MCHNC
Hi, I'm Sandra and I am a Naturopath and Functional Medicine practitioner. I'm passionate about all aspects of health and specifically focus on gut health, stress and chronic conditions.
Why Nutritional Therapy & Functional Medicine?
- Have less energy that you used to?
- Experience a lot of gut issues?
- Have hormones that are out of whack or want to work on your fertility?
- Want to get to the root cause of your issues?
Our health can be transformed by what we eat, breathe, feel and think. The food we eat and our lifestyles have a huge impact on our health and wellbeing – and fortunately, it is an area of our life that we can have a lot of positive control over.
My emphasis is not placed upon strict, faddy diets, nor the use of lots of supplements, but I work with you to get to the bottom of your issues, by being thorough and supporting you with any changes that we need to make. We are looking to help the body to function optimally and obtain the nutrients it needs to work properly in the world.
I am an experienced, BANT registered, Naturopath and Nutritional Therapist and I am continually undertaking more training and keeping up to date with the latest research.
During a one-to one consultation we will discuss your health and lifestyle to determine how I can best support you in meeting your goals. Every single person is an individual with unique requirements, so you will get a personalised plan rather than follow a ‘one size fits all’ approach. If it is required, I use a wide range of functional testing from nutritional profiles , stool testing and hormone/fertility profiles to full health assessments.
Please get in touch if you’d like to have a chat - I offer a free 15 minute initial consultation so you can find out if I am right for you
TESTIMONIALS (via google reviews)
"Visiting Sandra was a leap into the unknown which I am very glad I did. Sandra is incredibly knowledgeable and pragmatic in her approach and has helped me lose a considerable amount of weight, improve my general health and wellbeing, improve my energy levels and also provided me with an understanding of what does and doesn't work for me and my body! I am very glad that I booked that initial consultation and couldn't recommend Sandra enough!" Phil
"Working with Sandra has been great! She has helped immensely with my gut complaints and I have achieved almost all my therapy goals. This despite years of trying everything under the Sun (and Moon) and many practitioners. She is attentive, direct, cost effective and empathetic. I would highly recommend her services" Tom -Brighton
"It's so refreshing to be given such good, sensible and practical advice which has been of real benefit to my health and wellbeing. I was worried I might be told what 'not to do, not to eat', etc, but Sandra takes an entirely different approach based on a holistic view of one's individual life and needs - I highly recommend her." Daryl.
