Many people struggle with brain health conditions like age-associated memory loss; depression; anxiety; concentration problems; motivation loss; mood, alertness and behavioural problems; and learning disability.
A lot of these conditions are worsened and can even be caused by genetics, poor diet and nutritional deficiencies.
My goal is to improve your brain health by looking at genetics and ways to improve your thinking.
Joint pain, arthritis and osteoporosis
The treatment of inflammatory joint conditions and osteoporosis includes the management of patients who are at risk (genetically) or already diagnosed with these conditions.
My goal is to help patients reduce their need for anti-inflammatory medication and to support bone and joint health. The approach looks at the source of the problem -- whether it's genetic or lifestyle related -- and deals with the inflammatory process and pathways from all sides, often starting by recovering the gut first.

Hormones play an important role in many of our body systems and are affected by the way we eat, sleep, and think as well as factors like our age, stress, and our genes.
Women experience many hormonal symptoms throughout their lives.
Many men also suffer from hormonal decline, especially after the age of 40.
I will look at blood tests, genes, and current symptoms to provide a nutritional and lifestyle plan to improve your hormonal health and quality of life.
Heart disease or symptoms associated with it, e.g. high cholesterol, high blood pressure (hypertension) and diabetes, can be genetic but is strongly linked to your lifestyle.
I will provide individualised advice on an easily manageable diet and lifestyle changes along with suitable supplementation that will improve your quality of life to give you a longer healthier life.
Deficiencies are common in the general population, but even more so in people following a restricted diet due to poor appetite, food fussiness, sensory conditions, eating disorders, blood loss, genetic poor absorption, special diets (e.g.vegans or vegetarians), blood loss, and diseases.
These deficiencies can affect your energy levels, brain health, immune system, and body composition.
Looking at your dietary intake and blood tests, I will help you to overcome these deficiencies and improve your health and other systems mentioned above.

The treatment of patients with eating disorders including anorexia nervosa and bulimia includes a good understanding of the disorder and empathy alongside an individual approach for each patient to achieve his/her optimal nutritional status and to reverse habits.

Conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Diseases can be detrimental to your quality of life.
I will provide advice and support after looking at the specific cause of the condition and formulate an individualized nutritional and supplementation plan.
Tests such as a Food Intolerance test and stool testing can be done in severe cases to find the cause of the problem.
