Having suffered with multiple allergies myself in my early 20's at a time when allergies were rarely acknowledged, I discovered that my symptoms arose from eating every day foods and gradually began treating myself through knowledge gained by studying numerous health books. Impressed with my own improvement after consulting a nutritional therapist, I went on to study nutritional medicine at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London, and qualified in 1992.

Research has now shown the link between gut and brain health, linking many chronic health conditions both mental and physical to poor gut health/microbiome, (trillions of bacteria/microbes that live in the gut). Balancing the gut microbiome is essential, and can be achieved with simple life-style changes and dietary interactions. It is then possible to achieve vibrant energy levels, a healthy weight, balance hormones, and control autoimmune diseases. The correct bacteria in the gut is also important for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, acne, skin rashes, rosacea and psoriasis as well as many other health issues.
