I am a health professional with 12 years clinical practice and with a specialist knowledge of gut health.
I see clients with gastro-intestinal issues, whether they be medical disorders or functional conditions like IBS.
I am the daughter of a GP, I have upmost respect for the medical profession and I make sure to take into account any medical reports and diagnostic tests clients bring to my knowledge. In fact, I encourage my clients to seek medical opinion prior to working with me and to compile medical reports undertaken as well as results of endoscopies, colonoscopies and blood analysis so that I can gather all the necessary information to create individualised nutritional programme.
How do I work as a Functional Medicine Practitioner?
I address the underlying causes of your health problems by applying Functional Medicine.
Functional medicine offers a different way of viewing the gut and approaching clinical management by moving away from symptom-based diagnosis to understanding underlying dysfunction and utilising personalised nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
If we don’t fix the WHY all we do is address/manage the symptoms.
To identify the WHY, I am partial to functional testing. If you test, you don’t guess, that’s my motto in clinical practice!
I recommend very sophisticated lab tests that give us tremendous amount of information about possible root causes and underlying triggers. They give us a road map to follow a very precise nutritional protocol unique to your needs. This is what I call personalised nutrition!
I regularly attend conferences to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field of gut health and Microbiome research.
