WHO AM I

I’m a nutritionists who uses functional medicine and general medicine tests to design and deliver practical and personalised health solutions using food as the hero e.g. weight issues, food sensitivities, digestive problems, sleep and low energy or moods that you can’t resolve.

As Hippocrates understood centuries ago, “Food is Medicine” (431BC), so understanding your specific condition and how certain foods behave with those conditions, is the Food Pharma’s remedy.

By investigating how lost function occurred and addressing the root cause I aim to provide effective long lasting health solutions. This approach can lead the way to healing and balance between all your body systems and is a very effective strategy and enables you to better self-manage in the future.

Stress can also be a contributing factor to creating high cholesterol in your body. Having high cholesterol increases your risk of heart disease and stroke. Nonetheless, it can be controlled by specific food choices and nutrients, within weeks.

Sleep, energy and a positive outlook is often affected at this stage of life.
