Nutrition and Nutritional Plans

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food... Hippocrates

Over the years I’ve studied a variety of nutritional methods and plans to support my patients in their quest for good health.

First I trained with Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride to learn all about The GAPS Diet. This started out as something for my patients with Autism, ADHD, Anxiety or other mental health issues, however, the more I worked with patients doing The GAPS Diet the more I realised just how beneficial it was for a variety of conditions.

Things such as:
  • Autoimmune Conditions eg: Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Gut and Digestive Disorders
  • Allergies
  • Joint pain and Arthritis
  • Fatigue
  • To name a few


Then I trained with Dr Terry Wahls in The Wahls Protocol which was designed specifically to treat Multiple Sclerosis, however, once again the strategies in this protocol can treat a variety of patient illnesses.

Then, just for fun, I thought I’d do some training with Jason Hawrelak, who I would refer to as “The Godfather” of the gut microbiome and poop. His approach is slightly different to that of The GAPS Diet and The Wahls Protocol, yet put them together and you’ve got some pretty effective tools when treating patients.

Over the years the one thing I have been seeing my patients is that many of them are becoming more and more time poor which makes following these types of protocols very difficult for some of them. 

On top of this I find I have more patients who are also struggling with, what I refer to as the “21st Century” diseases such as Type II Diabetes or Metabolic Syndrome, fatty liver (Non-Alcoholic), high cholesterol, high blood pressure and unexplained digestive issues, which is only the half of it.

The trick to treating them, I have found, is to design a plan  that suits their individual needs whilst taking into consideration their lifestyle, work and family demands. In my experience there’s no point in asking someone to do something that they either can’t afford or can’t implement in the long term.

When we need to make changes to our diet and lifestyle for long term good health or for specific health conditions, they need to be changes we can maintain. Anyone can do a 6 or 12 week program then go back to their previous ways but no one gets long term success doing this.

So how do I do this I hear you ask?

When I first meet you we go through all of your health issues and decide what it is we need to do. It could be further testing or it could be we simply implement a suitable plan based on your individual needs.

As I often say to all my patients, I pretty much do everything but cook for you…. Don’t worry though, even if you’re no master chef I’ll make sure you leave feeling confident.

My job is to help you with a plan that you are comfortable with and one that you feel you’re able to incorporate into your life. Your job is to have a good go at it then if need be work with me until we get it just right.

When I give you your plan it will be tailored to your needs and designed to support your individual health conditions.

The types of nutritional styles I work with vary, the one thing they all have in common is they’re focussing on good gut health, long term healing and the ability for you to be successful.

The plans will support the health conditions I’ve already mentioned plus many more.

So you may be wondering what you’ll get from me, well wonder no more. When I put the plan together for you I will give you the following….

A nutritional prescription containing:

  • Herbal support (if it’s required)
  • Supplement support (if it’s required)
  • Dietary plan / guidance including meal options, foods to avoid and foods to incorporate
  • Hints and tips for continued success
  • And most importantly a heap of simple, family friendly recipes written by me to follow


So as I said, I pretty much do everything but cook for you.

The only question now is are you ready to change your life and take charge of your health.
