To handle complex digestive concerns, comprehensive and consistent coaching is often required. For this reason, I offer comprehensive digestive coaching plans which provide holistic and constant support for those treating any form of GI distress.
Digestive wellness is sometimes challenging - from dealing with recalcitrant SIBO, to treating parasites, to implementing immune healing through Autoimmune Paleo diets and more... So often I have found my clients need constant support and iterations of protocols in order to provide effective treatment of digestive disorders.
I have therefore developed comprehensive digestive healing packages which are beneficial for clients who require longer-term digestive protocols. I will discuss these in depth with you if, after testing, we find that you will require a treatment protocol (for parasites, intestinal permeability, SIBO, immune health etc.) Please find outline details of what to expect below.
We will also discuss testing – some options may be:
We will make our selection for your test/s based on our thorough discussion of your case, your budget and your needs. I will order chosen tests for you at the close of our consultation – payment for testing is direct-to-lab.
We will then discuss next steps. If your tests are ‘normal’ we will discuss what me might be looking at instead and/or whether there is dietary alterations we can do to obtain symptom relief.
If your tests have shown digestive issues, we will walk through a recommended treatment protocol.
AFTER this consultation I spend typically 1 – 1.5 hours creating a completely bespoke, personalised protocol which will be emailed to you with precise instructions along with a written overview of your test results.
All recommended supplements for any protocol will be hyperlinked for you to purchase, from the most affordable stockists I can find!
It will include the following:
We can discuss this package during our initial consultations.
Trained by the Kresser Institute, Metabolic Fitness Pro and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, as well as having qualifications in nutrition and dietary specialisms, I have comprehensive knowledge about all things 'nutrition'. I construct diet and lifestyle programs which can provide physical wellness to my clients, as well as help their bodies heal, lose or gain weight and be ultimately healthy - long term. My ultimate aim is to help my clients be well whilst also finding a confidence and trust in themselves, in their relationship to food and their ability to make healthy and yet enjoyable nutritional choices.
I coach my clients entirely dependent on their goals: creating unique, personalised recommendations and customising bespoke dietary plans. I am trained in using nutrition both therapeutically to alleviate symptoms and heal the gut and the body. I am also trained in optimising nutrition for metabolic and/or physiological weight goals.
I personally have experienced complex and life-altering digestive issues so have complete empathy with my clients going through gut health problems. For my own reasons I sought encyclopaedic knowledge of all foodstuffs and diet and have used my knowledge to effectively resolve my own issues.
Clinically, I have used my gut protocols and nutritional healing to help clients with Coeliac Disease, Non-coeliac-gluten-sensitivity, Lactose and Fructose Intolerance, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, gut dysbiosis, Candida, parasites, autoimmune conditions and severe allergies.
I have also created protocols for individuals with issues such as Histamine Intolerance, Oxalate and Salicylate sensitivities, low-FODMAP needs, the GAPS protocol, the WAHLS Protocol, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, the Autoimmune Paleo Diet and more – often several of these in one single client!
I recognise that food is much more than just fuel for our bodies. It has social, emotional and psychological associations and therefore becomes a very intertwined and complex part of our identity. Many people develop worrying feelings around food and diet which actually contributes to their physical ill health.
So whilst I use food and nutritional protocols to heal digestion, I also work with my clients on their relationship to food, their bodies and their digestive health. I work closely with clients to liberate them from any toxic or imbalanced relationships they have developed around nutrition.
