A bit about me...
I am a HCPC registered dietitian (BSC Hons Dietetics and nutrition). This means I use the most up-to-date, scientific evidence through my practice and adhere to a code of conduct and am governed by a professional body (HCPC).
I have a huge passion for all things food and health and promoting wellness! My aim is to support you through your journey to achieving OPTIMUM health and getting you the best health possible and achieving your BEST results!
Why start with digestive health?
Our digestive tract is probably the most undervalued organ in our bodies? This wonderful organ is responsible for regulating almost all of our vital bodily functions. For example, regulating up to 90% of the immune system, fighting off infection, absorbing vitamins and minerals nourishing our body, removing toxins and the regulation and production of hormones such as serotonin – also known as the happy hormone! So in short, your gut is responsible for how you feel and how you feel can influence your digestive health!
What can I expect from seeing a dietitian?
Firstly, we start by gathering essential information in order to build your personalised health profile. This allows me to get an idea of where you are in your journey and enables us to support you and get you on your way to better health. You will be sent a 3 day food and symptom diary prior to your first consultation. This enables me to get a good idea of your symptoms and relation to food and also enables you to tell me about your symptoms in great detail. I will monitor and review your progress at regular intervals to ensure you reach your goals!
Every person is different, so nutritional care plans are tailored to meet the needs of the individual and can be reviewed and tweaked during each stage.
There may be instances where further tests and investigations may need to be carried out, for example, diagnostic tests via your Doctor if not already competed. This ensures that your nutritional plan suits your needs and get you the results you want!
Please feel free to get in touch with us via email or phone with any queries and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Note* Areas covered are not limited to Birmingham. I also travel (additional cost please see fees) and/or assessments and reviews can be done via a Face-to-Face meeting, Video/Skype call, Telephone or Email. Please feel free to enquire about options that suit you by sending your queries via the ‘email me’ tab.
