Your body can recover and heal once it's given the right environment and nourishment

The very best in nutritional support and advice for diabetes, menopause and weight loss. 

 

People often come to see me after many years of health problems, with much frustration and worry. You may have spent time trying different diets, not only trying to lose weight but dealing with chronic digestive issues and low energy.

 

You may be dealing with all the hormonal issues around the lead up to your menopause and potentially through it. This may include weight gain, tiredness and exhaustion, fluctuating moods, depression, anxiety, hot flushes and night sweats, hair loss, poor libido, skin issues, joint pain, where medications or other specialists just don't seem to help, or help but don't resolve. 

 

You may have been diagnosed with diabetes and are now looking to manage it with diet. Your blood sugar was under control but recently it's become harder to manage? Just diagnosed with diabetes and and want to know more about managing with nutrition? Perhaps you are aware of low carb, keto diets and fasting but need a professional to help you apply it safely.

 

The consultation

I take time to explore what is really happening to you. I ask you to fill in a comprehensive questionnaire and diet diary and I study this prior to seeing you. We then talk this through. This allows me to really analyse what is happening and form a 'hypothesis'. From this I create a nutritional plan based on your life and circumstances so it can really work for you and answer your needs. I then send this to you after our initial consultation. To ensure I give you the best care it is recommended that you come back for a follow up with regular check in calls for the duration of your plan. The duration of your plan and what it contains will be decided together at the initial consultation.

Consultations can be held in person at my clinic, via zoom or skype or phone call, so can be as convenient for you as possible. You can even see me at your office desk. 

Supplement programme

As part of your plan I may recommend a supplement programme to aid your bodies healing capacity and correct imbalances. Supplements can really help to aid the process so your body can start to heal quicker. I partner with trusted suppliers and distributors who provide high quality supplements to support my plans (full details on how to purchase will be given as part of your plan).

Private testing

If I feel it's required I will suggest specific testing. Private testing is more comprehensive than the tests performed by your GP and gives me a lot of information. It acts as a detailed snapshot into your health status right now. I always aim to work alongside your GP or any other practitioner involved in your health care. 

 

Private Testing and health supplements are additional and not included in the consultation fee. Payments to be made by BACS transfer.

Testing

Laboratory testing

Laboratory testing, eg. from blood, saliva or urine samples, can give me a lot of information regarding nutrient levels, how you metabolise various nutrients, hormone and stress hormone imbalances, blood lipid profiles, inflammatory markers, fatty acid ratios, insulin and glucose control. I don't diagnose any conditions but I can look at your test results to identify areas of weakness and help inform your health picture. Nutritional therapy is complimentary, which allows me to support you with any recommendations given by your GP.

Functional testing

Functional testing looks at the functioning capability of your body. For example a stool test could indicate digestive function: digestion, absorption, bacterial balance, yeast, and parasites and can help identify underlying causes to digestive symptoms, your weight gain, mood and other symptoms. Functional biochemical tests can indicate enzyme function which can be used to ascertain specific needs allowing me to really tailor your programme.

Genetic testing

Our genetics contribute to our differences. Eye and hair colour are genetic differences that we can see. But there are also differences that aren't so obvious to us such as how we metabolise nutrients and how we deal with toxins. Our genes interact with our environment in our own unique way. How our genes are expressed and how they function can be modified by diet and lifestyle. Genetic testing can indicate your increased needs for certain nutrients, areas of biochemical weaknesses as well as food intolerances and sensitivities.

 

As a genetic nutritionist I am trained in interpreting and evaluating DNA test data. I look at relevant genes that have been shown in scientific studies to be modifiable via nutrition and lifestyle. For example a confirmed MTHFR mutation and/or a blood test confirming high homocysteine levels may indicate vitamin deficiencies in folate, choline, or vitamins B12, B6, or riboflavin.
