DNA Analysis

We all have the same genes  - around 20,000 - the only difference between people is different versions of the same gene.

Diet and our DNA interact.

Nutrition has the most important life-long environmental impact on human health.

While nutrigenetics addresses how an individual’s genetic make-up metabolises nutrients and predisposes us to developing diet-related disease, nutrigenomics explains how nutrition can influence the expression of our genes. You can be in control of your genes, rather than your genes being in control of you...

 


The interaction between Genetics and Nutrition is the most important factor to consider for personalised nutritional programme tailor-made for each individual.

 

OUR GENES ARE NOT OUR FATE

We are entering a new era of personalised medicine.  One size does not fit all. 

New studies show that comprehensive nutritional and lifestyle changes may alter gene expression in hundreds of genes in only a few months — "turning on" (up regulating) anti-ageing and disease-preventing genes and "turning off" (downregulating) genes that promote disease, inflammation, ageing and oxidative stress. These nutritional and lifestyle changes also increase telomerase, the enzyme that repairs and lengthens telomeres, the ends of our chromosomes that control how long we live!

 

But, we are all different from one another, not all types of food or certain diet can grant each one of us the same benefits. 

Unlocking the secrets contained within your genetic data, analysing it, incorporating the latest scientific research and advances in nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics can reveal how each individual metabolises macro- and micro-nutrients, determine essential nutrient requirements for anti-ageing effect, identify the type of diet that is ideal to keep you slim and healthy in accordance to your genetic make-up.

Genetic testing is designed to help you optimise your health via your diet, lifestyle and supplements, allowing you to live in a way that respects your individual biology. Your genetic data will be used to create Your Tailored Nutritional Programme that will show you exactly what type of diet is perfect for you, what dietary components are important, which supplements are necessary and what measures you should incorporate into your daily life. The DNA-based Programme gives you the power to be in control of your genes.

Weight Loss

I use various proven weight loss techniques and programmes that are individually tailored to a client and their unique lifestyle, preferences and goals. I have had long-term success rates with various types of intermittent fasting, ketogenic diets, Paleo style diets, low carbohydrate programmes and high protein diets for targeted long-term weight loss and maintenance.

METABOLIC BALANCE®

Metabolic Balance® is a revolution in weight-loss, using cutting edge science to deliver a unique and tailored nutritional programme.

Metabolic Balance® achieves weight-loss by resetting the body’s metabolism and improving the health of the body. Replacing the fad diet and the one size fits all approach, Metabolic Balance® delivers a nutritional programme that is unique for your body. No plan is the same!

Metabolic Balance® has received international acclaim for its weight loss potential, however the programme can also be used for weight gain, weight maintenance, and in the management of such conditions as high cholesterol, Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure and skin conditions. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism showed the effectiveness of the Metabolic Balance® programme in improving weight, blood lipids and quality of life. You can read the study here. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jnme/2010/197656/

Each programme produced is individualised based on blood test results and your health information. During the 3 month programme, your Metabolic Balance® certified coach will be on hand to prepare you for what to expect at each stage, and to provide you with support and encouragement along the way.

The tailored 4-phase programme is completely healthy, balanced and no food groups are eliminated. Better still you don’t need to use any supplements, you can get everything you need from your supermarket. The plan is based on consuming 3 meals a day and changes the way you think about food forever.

Metabolic Balance® Standard package costs £895 and includes all of the following:

  • Preliminary assessment of whether Metabolic Balance® is right for you (initial cost of £30, offset against the cost of the programme should you proceed with it). If you do decide to go ahead, your coach will talk you through the preparatory stages, discuss your personal goals, and help you arrange your blood test.
  • Comprehensive blood test (normally valued at £265).
  • Metabolic Balance® kick-off consultation, where your coach will guide you through your individualised plan which has been put together based on your blood analysis. Any questions are answered and you leave fully prepared for the start of your journey, knowing your coach will be fully supportive throughout the entire process.
  • First follow-up consultation with your coach, 1 week into the programme.
  • 3 further consultations (which may be a mixture of face-to-face, telephone and Skype) throughout the 3-month programme.
  • Regular contact from your coach to see how you are doing.

Disclaimer: The Metabolic Balance® programme does not replace your requirement for your usual consultations with your medical practitioner, in particular in relation to permanent symptoms requiring medical supervision. Please click here if you would like more information on Metabolic Balance®

Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking to enhance their health and wellbeing.

WHY USE NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?

Some people simply want to check that they are on the right track with regard to healthy eating. Others may want to lose weight or get help with their symptoms.

Nutritional Therapists recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define personalised nutrition plans rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

WHAT CAN NUTRITION HELP WITH?

Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive and integumentary [skin, hair, nails]). Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations include support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, optimum gastrointestinal health and tolerance to a broad range of food groups.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Nutritional Therapy is not as simple as being told what to eat and when; what foods are good for you and what to do if you want to lose weight. It is rather an 'investigation' into a person’s physiological, biochemical and genetic make-up to identify any imbalance that may have contributed to the symptoms or a specific health condition with the aim to optimise or correct an imbalance with specific micro- and macronutrients, phytochemicals, dietary compounds or therapeutic and functional foods.

I use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances in order to understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows me to work with my clients to address nutritional imbalance and help support the body towards maintaining health.

I consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. I never recommend Nutritional Therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. I will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.

CONSULTATION PROCESS

Before you meet with me, you will be asked to complete a health and nutrition questionnaire. It is important that the completed questionnaire is returned in sufficient time before the consultation date so that the necessary research can be undertaken. An initial consultation typically lasts 60 minutes, and in this time you will be asked detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnoses and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and your current diet. I will then analyse your individual needs and use the extensive evidence base for nutritional science to develop an individualised, safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle programme.

Follow-up consultations are generally scheduled after four weeks in order to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments. If it is difficult for you to get to one of the clinics, follow-up consultations can be arranged over the phone or via Skype. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.
