I am a BANT-registered nutritionist based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and my passion is helping people transform their health from the inside out.
In Nutritional Therapy, we are looking at so much more than what takes place in the kitchen. It is based on a deep understanding of the biochemistry and physiology of your whole body. A full understanding of your environment and lifestyle and how they affect you is also just as important.
This total person, science-based approach is known as Functional Medicine. It focuses on restoring health and function, not just controlling symptoms.
Regular healthcare is fantastic for dealing with emergencies and acute conditions. However for chronic conditions which linger or get worse over time, medications help manage the symptoms but bring us no nearer to resolving the issue.
In clinic, we recognise that illness doesn’t occur in isolation. With the functional medicine approach, we are looking for the root causes of your symptoms. We go back to your life story; the important life events, family history and the way you live your life now, leaving no stone unturned. This enables us to create a highly individual map of your journey back to good health.
The list of chronic conditions that respond well to nutritional therapy is endless! Everything from lack of energy, digestive problems, skin health, female health issues like PMS or heavy periods, food sensitivities, autoimmune conditions, mental health concerns such as depression and anxiety…
In fact if you feel you have got as far as you can, you’ll discover that there are still plenty of avenues to explore, whatever your health concerns may be.
Whether you have symptoms or a diagnosis, are feeling totally overwhelmed with trying to do what’s best healthwise, or want to feel full of good health and vitality, I can help. Get started today.
