The body is a protein-producing machine and nutrition contributes the raw materials. Food is information for your cells and your body and when the input changes, the body’s chemistry can change, affecting our cellular function and physiology.
The way we process, digest and assimilate food varies to an enormous degree between individuals and the same symptom can therefore have numerous different causes, depending on our individuality. This is why I take a personalised approach, pioneered by the Institute of Functional Medicine, using a matrix of all the body’s systems to assess how they may be impacting each other, building a picture of your overall health.
The information you provide about your health history, current symptoms and at our consultation, together with your food diary, is collated for analysis using a scientific, evidence based approach. Supplements and functional testing may also be useful.
