I have an integrative healthcare family practice incorporating therapeutic bodywork, clinical nutrition, functional medicine and health education. After studying neuromuscular therapy, therapeutic bodywork and movement in the USA, I completed a post-graduate certification in clinical nutrition and a 2-year program in functional medicine with Metagenics. I have experience of working in orthopaedic rehabilitation units, sports medicine and family health clinics. I teach advanced manual therapy skills to practitioners and work as a consultant to businesses on employee health advocacy.

Clinical nutrition involves a systematic review of your diet, blood markers, hormone levels, gut function and general health, while taking into consideration your systems biology, environmental lifestyle and genetic dispositions. It can be used to support and treat complex health conditions and common complaints as well as maintain health. Patients include those with Multiple Sclerosis, Adrenal Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, IBS, Heart Disease, Eczema, Dermatitis, Polycystic Ovaries, Infertility, Anxiety Disorders and Depression.
Clinical laboratory services in the area of nutrients, toxicants, allergies, hormonal balance, biotransformation and detoxification, gastrointestinal function, and the microbiome are often used. Testing allows us access key unique patient health status to custom tailor nutritional therapies, detoxification programs, and other lifestyle changes for the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of complex chronic disease.
Laboratory guidance alongside specific health goals will determine lifestyle and environmental changes as well as the clinical use of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and specialised diets – which can be a powerful tool.
