Consultations

Gut issues are often complex, especially ones that develop slowly. They can creep up gradually and before you know it, it’s impacting your daily life. Maybe it’s niggling bloating after meals or you’re so worried about going out with friends because you’re not sure how you’re going to react to the food that your social life is suffering. The time comes though when you’re ready for a change and there’s a desire to feel well again. Perhaps that’s what’s lead you to my website.

Complex gut conditions may have developed over years if not decades. This means I rarely see clients for “one off” consultations as I don’t feel this offers a realistic or meaningful approach to allow you to regain your health and live symptom free.

Teamwork

I view the relationship I have with my patients as a partnership. Since the process is dynamic and gut issues may respond quickly to the changes I find regular contact and feedback sessions allow us to keep all the recommendations relevant and our approach up to date. This prevents you from remaining on a restrictive diet for a prolonged period of time when you’re ready for the next step in the process.

The Next Step

If you’re ready to take back control of your gut health schedule a free 20 minute discovery call with Martin. On this call you’ll discuss your symptoms, talk about possible treatment options and he’ll also offer some tips so you can get started right away.

Nutritional Therapy

When we talk about disease we spend a lot of the time talking about symptoms. Headaches, tiredness, aches and pains, they all tell us how we’re feeling however they don’t offer many clues about why we might be feeling that way. While medication can help us more comfortable it may not always be appropriate in each and every case. This may even be something you’re experiencing yourself with the medication you’ve been prescribed not be giving the results you hoped for . It could even be resulting in some undesired side effects.

Our bodies have a natural ability to heal. However, with long-standing health conditions the natural healing processes are hindered. Reasons for this include nutrient deficiencies, inflammation, environmental toxins, poor sleep or immune imbalances. It is by bringing these back into balance we can support our own natural healing processes.

Nutritional Therapy focuses on you as an individual with a unique set of challenges and works to bring changes that last.

A Holistic Approach

If you’re walking down the street and you notice a small stone in your shoe digging into your foot what would you be inclined to do? Would you take a pain killer to numb the pain or stop, slip off your shoes and remove the stone? It’s a simple analogy but these aches and pains are signs that something isn’t quite right. It’s important that these signals are listened to. This is what nutritional therapy aims to do. It’s my job to figure out why these signals are being sent. By connecting the dots between seemingly unconnected symptoms and get you back to feeling great.

Complex gut conditions they may have developed over years if not decades. This means I rarely see clients for “one off” consultations as I don’t feel this approach offers a realistic or meaningful approach to allow you to regain your health.

If we want to chop down a tree, trimming the branches isn’t going to get us very far. Short term it might work but give it a few weeks and the branches will be back stronger than ever. To remove the tree for good we need to dig up the roots and address the underlying issue. Health is no different. It’s about digging, understanding what mechanisms are at play and making the most appropriate interventions. Here we address any foundational and fundamental imbalances in your gut. I call this root cause resolution and this means you’ll see lasting change.

Where We Focus

There are a number of areas of your health and broader wellbeing that we’ll examine to understand the root cause of your symptoms:

  • Gut health
  • Environmental toxins
  • Emotional wellbeing
  • Genetics
  • Nutrient status
  • Immune function

Nutritional Therapy Consultations

Before we meet for the first consultation I will ask you to complete an in-depth health questionnaire. This will give me a clearer understanding of the current state of your health. This will also allow us to make the best use of our time together during the first consultation to dive deeper and set out and the best way to move forward.

Consultations Include:

  • A full in-depth health assessment to investigate the root of your symptoms.  This includes dietary assessment, medical and family history, sleep, stress and more. 90 minute duration.
  • Follow up consultations where we assess progress, monitor any changes in symptoms and discuss test results.  Here we refine our approach and make any appropriate changes to the plan. 45 minute duration.
  • Investigation of potential food triggers and working to understand which foods to eat and, if indicated, which to avoid – and why!
  • Personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme based on your symptoms..
  • Practical, adaptable recipes and resources.
  • Additional support in person, via email, text or messenger according to your needs.
  • Health coaching to help you fully understand your health needs, navigate the programme, identify and overcome potential challenges.
  • I may also recommend some additional supplements and/or diagnostic testing to investigate potential imbalances. *

After living with unpredictable bowel habits for around 18 months I visited Martin. He was quick to make gentle adjustments to my diet which resulted in a my main symptoms of gas and bloating dramatically reducing. Over the following sessions we identified troublesome foods and the underlying issue.

Since working with Martin I’ve managed to lose the weight I’ve always wanted to. His gimmick free approach to nutrition was refreshing and his recommendations very easy to understand. A satisfied customer!

JustineKnutsford

Working with Martin has been massively beneficial for me. I came to him with IBS related issues and he was able to guide and advise me to a place where I am largely now symptom free over a course of a few weeks. His guidance around supplements for both myself and my children has also been extremely valuable.

MaryHale

Martin listened and asked pertinent questions. As a result of our conversation I tried a new eating plan recommended by him, within 4 days the symptoms eased and within 2 weeks I had no symptoms. I am still symptom free and thrilled by the result, life is joyful again!
