Hi and welcome!
I am Melanie, a BANT and CNHC registered Nutritional Therapist and NLP practitioner specialising in gut health (such as IBS), skin issues (such as acne), chronic fatigue, low energy and weight management.
My main objective is to help people improve their overall health by finding the root cause of their symptoms and not just hiding them.
What passionates me the most is helping people reach health goals that last and helping them with symptoms that I understand.
My passion came when I was once ill and understood that by changing my diet, managing my lifestyle and cleaning my environment, all my symptoms went away, and I have finally found the bottom of my illness. I used to live with symptoms such as irregular bowel movement, heartburn and acid reflux, eczema, and acne. I was bloating so much that I was looking as if I was pregnant.
These symptoms became illnesses, and I developed Eosinophilic Oesophagitis, gluten intolerance, allergy to dairy products, IBS and Endometriosis. This is why I decided to study Nutritional Therapy in London. After 3 years, I learned that my symptoms were the results of a bad lifestyle and deeper health issues. By changing my food, how I live and by being more aware of my environment, these illnesses are ancient history... This is why I now help people with their health issues. By using my scientific knowledge and functional testing, I can help them get a healthier lifestyle and be symptoms free.
Thanks to good nutrition and lifestyle, I have now been in remission for 7 years.
Our mental state also has a huge impact on our illness. This is why I studied Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). During our consultation, you will learn techniques to manage your stress and modify your unconscious biases.

How can I help you!
As a nutritional therapist, I am here to help you with your symptoms by taking into account your diet, lifestyle, stress level, sleep quality, and quantity.
My approach is holistic to find the root cause of your GUT issues (SIBO, IBS or Candida) and restore a normal digestive function, rather than hiding your symptoms, using a non-restrictive balanced diet, supplements and lifestyle tips.
Everyone has different needs, and our body reacts differently. This is why my packages are designed for you and tailored to your needs and not just a one size fit's all program! We will take the necessary time that your body needs to heal.
My job is to help you feel happier again by making changes that last.
