‘Let Food Be Thy Medicine & Medicine Thy Food’ Hippocrates
Functional Medicine is a personalised, systems-orientated model that empowers patients and practitioners to achieve the highest level of health by working in collaboration to address the underlying root cause of their challenges.
Nutritional Therapy is evidence based science using food to attain good health and healing.
The combination of these two sciences is powerful.
I am generalist and see people with many different health challenges but have a special interest in auto-immune conditions, women’s health/hormonal health and adrenal fatigue/ stress management due to my personal experiences with them.

After booking an appointment you will be emailed some forms that need to be completed, including a 3 day food diet that you must complete and bring to the appointment with you.
The initial consultation lasts up to one hour and fifteen minutes. During this time I take a detailed medical history. You will be asked lots of questions about all your body system, including: Digestive, hormone, nervous system, cardiovascular system, skeletal, urinary – and more. This gives me clues not only where the imbalances and weaknesses are – but also where your strengths lay.
If you have any recent blood works or reports from the Dr. it is helpful to bring them with you and also to make a note of any medication or supplements that you are taking.
We will discuss what path to take and possible options/ further testing that may be required (bloods with your GP and/or Functional testing)
After our meeting I will email you a detailed plan with all the recommendations including: Testing, dietary/ nutritional advise, supplemental support and lifestyle.
Each plan is bespoke and tailored accordingly.
