Nutritional Therapist in Weston Turville


In keeping with many other nutritionists and complementary practitioners, I became interested in nutrition in order to address my own health issues. I struggled with my weight for 18 years from my mid teens, suffering with what I now realise was IBS. Both these issues resolved during the first few months of my UK College of Nutrition and Health (BCNH) course in Clinical Nutrition.

My primary motive in doing the course was to understand how to attain and achieve a healthy weight without always being on a diet, but the BCNH course offered so much more than guidance on weight control! I learned how the human body interacts with the food we eat and was quickly entranced and awed by the way it works.

Food, I discovered, is not only fuel but information. What we eat impacts on how our genes express themselves and this can mean a choice between a healthy and vital long life or a shorter life span punctuated with periods of illness.
 
During my training, my mum was diagnosed with a very aggressive case of Ulcerative Colitis and I saw first hand just how debilitating inflammatory bowel disease can be. What my mum and I experienced helped me shape my plan for IBS Clinics: hence at the clinic we focus on helping the sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel disease (IBD) as well as the other gut and digestive disorders.

Background & Qualifications

BCNH Diploma with Distinction qualified since 2008

My Specialisms

Optimal gut health is of paramount importance to everyone as it has implications for almost every health condition. Physicians from ancient Rome and Greece felt that "death begins in the colon." (Hippocrates). IBS clinics therefore focusses on IBS, inflammatory bowel conditions, and all other digestive disorders but often this is just the beginning! There is good research to show that the gut microbiome plays a key part in auto immunity, inflammatory health conditions, hormones and weight control and therefore optimising gut health can help resolve a myriad of health complaints.

We should be your first port of call for symptoms such as: bloating, variable bowel habits, constipation, diarrhea, reflux and indigestion and for health concerns such as SIBO, Candida, Parasites, Crohn's or Colitis. We can also help with skin issues (theres a gut link!), hormone balancing, auto immune diseases or just a health MOT!
