Nutritionist Manchester > About Me

I had seen many nutritionists over the years due to a range of gastrointestinal problems, but this was different.  This wasn’t someone giving me a list of what I should and shouldn’t eat with some stock supplements.  This form of nutritional therapy was looking at what I could detoxify out of my body as well as what I was putting in.  It gave me some invaluable lifelong tools to open up my body’s routes of elimination so that I could clear out the toxins that were damaging my cells and giving rise to a wide array of multi system symptoms.

It was individualised to me and showed me how I could switch off any expression of unwanted inherited genetic mutations.  It explained why standard nutritionist diets were not working for me by using laboratory tests to explore any pathogens in my system, my own unique microbiome, my genetics, etc.

Finally my numerous health conditions and challenges with food sensitivities that had eluded both allopathic health care professionals and alternative therapists for years started to make sense.  And it put them in context, explaining what lifestyle, hormonal and emotional changes I needed to make.

This has given me the passion I have today to educate, support and empower other people to take control of their health and wellbeing through harnessing food, supplements, detoxification techniques and lifestyle modification in order to activate that innate healing ability that every one of us has.

I hold an advanced practitioner diploma in nutritional healing, full membership of the Federation for Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and full professional indemnity and medical malpractice insurance.

Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.
The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.
I attended and completed the AFMCP™-UK training in London in 2018.
