Open and happy to help people with any health concerns, I have a particular interest in gastrointestinal health, immunity, and maintaining/improving health for the elderly.
To help you reach your optimal weight, I will draw a personalized, easy to follow dietary and lifestyle plan, based on the Institute of Functional Medicine's FLT (First Line Therapy) programme - which will provide you with the knowledge and power to make healthy choices each day.
I am also a fully-qualified and registered naturopath, and a certified HeartMath practitioner, integrating HeartMath techniques and HRV (heart rate variability) in my practice, as I find it an effective self-regulation tool, beneficial for a wide variety of conditions that are associated with or exacerbated by emotional stress. For more information, please visit https://www.heartmath.com/
I am also a certified GAPS (Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome) practitioner, personally trained by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. GAPS links gastrointestinal disorders with neurological and (auto-)immune conditions. For more information, please visit http://www.gaps.me/
Applying naturopathic and functional medicine principles, I see each client as unique - body/mind/spirit, and focus on finding and addressing the root causes of problems and creating a personalised action plan.
When/if necessary, I can advise for and provide functional testing (e.g. food intolerance and/or allergy, comprehensive stool analysis + parasitology, adrenal stress profile etc.) and am registered and work with reputable laboratories (CNS - Cambridge Nutritional Sciences, Genova Diagnostics, Biolab, Regenerus Labs).
