Sylwia Razak Registered Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach
Hi, I'm Sylwia, a registered nutritional therapist and health coach. I specialise in gut health and conditions that are the consequences of compromised gut.
To successfully address any gut problems you need dive deep into the different aspects of gut health. Including the relationship between food, emotions, gut bugs, stress, lifestyle habits and medication that contribute to or exacerbate gut discomfort.
I do the detective work needed to get answers about root causes and life events that may have thrown gut function out of balance and educate and support my clients to get things under control, reduce or totally resolve all gut problems.
The world is full of too many scary or dark messages about living with deliberating gut issues.
This is a place of hope, where you have a chance at getting the life back that you once lived.
As a registered nutritional therapist and health coach, I partner with you in this journey to learn about your body. I educate you about gut health and help you sort through the good and bad information out there.
The worst part of any gut issues what ever you name it, is not knowing what’s wrong. I offer functional medicine testing packages, sent to your home, that look at the state of the small intestine (lactulose SIBO test) or/and comprehensive stool test that picks up things that single stool samples can miss. These tests have found things that routine medical tests have missed. Things like bacterial overgrowth, yeast overgrowth, parasites, and h pylori.
When you finally have an answer, you have hope of moving forward.
I work with dietary, herbal and supplement protocols as well as lifestyle changes that helps with the most common root cause of gut issues.

"It was recurrent pain after each meal, frequent bloating, strong cravings, continuous grazing and extreme shifts of energy that altogether made me feel very unwell. This miserable state led me to reaching out to Sylwia, who assessed the problem(s), designed a bespoke treatment and supervised it. Thanks to Sylwia's careful and thorough analysis, the first step forward was the accurate assessment of the various causes - bacteria, lifestyle, diet, allergies and complex gut malfunction. In the next step, Sylwia took great care not only to prescribe the appropriate medication, but to help me built new healthy habits and to encourage me to stick with it. Her holistic and most informed approach to treatments and her patients proved key when we experienced a set back at one of the stages. She went the extra mile to find most efficient and best suited to me alternative treatment, and alongside supported me emotionally as well as with plenty of practical advice. I am currently at the last stage of the treatment, cured from bacteria and all its side effects, all the initial symptoms are gone, healthy habits and good meal organisation are now second nature to me, energy levels are stable and I feel happy and balanced. I could not recommend Sylwia more and am extremely grateful for her amazing assistance. Additionally, working with her has been a pleasure as she is a kind, thoughtful, smart and interesting person.
"Sylwia is incredible! She is the only way I have managed to keep my health on track and stay feeling fit & healthy, even shortly afted having two children! Sylwia takes time to understand what is going on with your health & diet, works out a personal programme for you, encourages and motivates you in such a positive way and helps with anything in particular that you are struggling with health wise. I recently joined one of her health programmes and it was the best thing I could have done. Since starting it, I have felt positive about my diet, taken up exercise several times a week and my general mood has really lifted. Thank you so much Sylwia, you are the best and I would recommend your services to anyone!" Kamila N
