Tom Sokolowski

Nutritional Therapist in London, Totnes

Tom has always been interested in health and nutrition, even as a child. His degree was in physics, but after his undergraduate degree he began practising Tai Chi and other body awareness practices and became fascinated in the non-linear kind of intelligence found in spontaneous movement and creative expression. He contracted gut infections in South East Asia which led to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and suffered insomnia, frequent colds, fatigue, joint and muscular pains as well as gut symptoms for years after ridding himself of parasites. This led to his renewed interest in science, but now it was biochemistry and nutrition that his research focused on. Eventually he had acquired a large knowledge base and felt his passion lay in helping others, so he completed a 3-year training at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, the DNALife certification training for nutrigenetics counselling and further training with the Institute Of Functional Medicine and numerous experts in all areas of nutritional therapy based in biochemistry, science and clinical experience.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

Both experience and training in naturopathy and functional medicine have given Tom an understanding of how all of the body systems are not just interconnected but inseparable. Thus although he specialises in several areas he also keeps a broad knowledge of all aspects of health. Tom seeks out the root causes of imbalance in the body to find how best to direct treatment to optimise health. He personalises treatment with the use of genetic testing, a powerful tool especially when used in parallel with biochemical testing.

Tom believes almost everyone can find abundant health and energy to live their life fully.

In a consultation Tom will ask you detailed questions and perform a few simple examinations to get as full a picture as possible of the root causes of your health issues. He will then give you a nutrition plan, and ask you to book a follow-up consultation usually around 4 weeks later to monitor progress and make adjustments to your nutrition plan.
The initial consultation lasts a total of 2 hours - 90 minutes in person and then 30 minutes on Skype or telephone to explain the treatment plan.
Follow-up consultations are for approximately 1 hour - 30-40 minutes in person and then 20-30 minutes on Skype or telephone to explain the treatment pan I will send you.

Sometimes change is rapid and these two consultations are enough. Often change requires a more gradual approach and more follow-up consultations may be booked.
Nutrigenetics testing can be helpful in many cases.
