EVIDENCE-BASED

As an evidence-based practitioner, she will be utilising any research-proven strategies to help you to regain your optimum health.  Therefore, if it’s not scientifically proven to be effective and safe, then it is not considered suitable.  To clarify, this is because your health, safety and well-being are always the top consideration.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

We have a new generation of chronic diseases, conditions that inevitably deteriorate over a long period of time and do not go away.  Unfortunately, current medicine often labels them ‘incurable’ and only offers symptom management.  However, Functional Medicine (FM) is a relatively new branch of medicine which aims to address root causes of disease.  It asks ‘Why?’ these symptoms occurred and what is their root cause.  Therefore, by addressing the root cause; this not only resolves the symptoms, but prevents them returning.  As an example, the most famous Functional Medicine practitioner in the UK is Dr Rangan Chatterjee from BBC1’s ‘Doctor In The House’.

As your Nutritionist, Jenny will work to make the diet and lifestyle adjustments, that will help improve physical and mental well-being. This enhances the healing benefits when combined with Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She will also take into account your food preferences and goals.

Therapies are customised to every individual. Jenny takes into account each of your personal goals, lifestyle, budget and preferences, and put together a plan that works for you.

Jenny uses a scientifically based research approach, to ensure the best approach is used to bring you back to better health.
