Nutritionist

Helen Cooke, our Nutritional Therapist, works from a Functional

Medicine perspective.  

 

As Helen says "This approach to nutritional therapy helps us

quickly get to the root cause of your problem by exploring where

any metabolic or biochemical imbalances may lie, which we can

then seek to address - helping to restore and maintain optimal

health".

 

During your initial consultation, Helen will take an in-depth account of your

individual situation; past medical history, family history, diet,

medications and lifestyle. Having gained a clear understanding of your

situation she will work with you to ensure all the advice she gives is simple,

achievable and cost-effective to undertake – as well as enjoyable!

 

Functional testing can be included as an option.  Helen says “Testing can be really useful for people with long standing symptoms as it can help us better understand the root cause of your problem/s (e.g. an imbalance of gut bacteria may be part of the underlying problem in irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, metabolic imbalance can create many health problems including difficulty in losing weight) and enable us to personalise your dietary and supplement recommendations”.
