Susie Willsher Nutrition BA, BSc (Hons), mBANT, mCNHC
I'm here to help and support people who want to improve their health through nutrition.
I came to nutrition in my 20's when I suffered with gastrointestinal symptoms and did not find the help I needed from my doctor. Through my own research I was able to improve my condition though diet and lifestyle changes. I went on to get a degree in Nutritional Therapy and began to practice in 2008. I trained and practice using the theories of Functional Medicine, aiming to find the origin of your symptoms, through asking you questions about your health history and using functional testing when needed.
I believe working with individuals and their personal circumstances is an important way to strike the right balance between health, pleasure and convenience through what we eat. I don’t believe in just telling people what to eat and drink but through my knowledge and experience I am able to help you develop the necessary skills to help yourself.
Among the extensive list of health concerns I can help you to address, I have a particular interest in:
- Gastrointestinal symptoms
- Improving energy levels
- Weight loss
- Hormonal support
My in-depth knowledge and experience of health products, cooking and fitness help to provide my patients with a truly personalised and holistic solution.
My passion for food and health means I am incredibly dedicated to my own personal and professional development to ensure I can in turn, provide the best possible advice.
My practice is evidence based and I keep up to date with the latest nutritional research.
