WHAT I DO
London-based certified functional medicine practitioner (IFMCP), nutritional therapist and master herbalist offering a fully integrated health approach in London and internationally via our secure online telemedicine portal. As a naturopath and functional medicine practitioner, I aim to educate, support, and empower my clients to take responsibility for their own health, and help equip them to deal with the demands of the modern world. Did you know that over 80% of your immune system is in your gut? Or that food intolerances can stop you from losing weight? Digestive health is at the root of most issues and getting this right is for most people the first step to getting and staying healthy.
I have a background (in my previous life!) in finance, so part of my expertise is in managing stress and optimising energy levels, weight management and prevention of chronic disease and complex conditions in those working in a corporate or high-stress environment.
Of course, whether your issues are caused by stress or not, I can give you the tools and guidance to get your health, energy levels and weight the way you want them.
I quit the City and started Anthrobotanica to provide tailored naturopathy services in London that incorporated science-based nutritional therapy, endobiogeny, functional medicine and testing, herbal medicine, genetics, NLP and hypnotherapy, health education and consulting. Why? Because it works. And because, after close family members and friends were diagnosed with cancer and auto-immune diseases, I wanted to find out why this was happening and how I could stop it happening in the first place. I wanted to know whether it was down to our genes, our lifestyle, or both. I also wanted to find out how I could help them to manage the side effects of their conditions and medication and help to prevent any recurrence. More and more I see the effect our lifestyle and routine has on people, and how connected it is with everything from asthma, eczema and digestive complaints to serious chronic illness and depression.
Most of the patients I see have been to other practitioners before they discover me, but haven’t really found a way forward. I work closely with people who really value their health and are ready to commit to making positive changes to get to the root cause of their health problems. I work mostly by referral so I end up seeing entire families or groups of friends, or seeing people through important life stages, such as pregnancy.
I work mostly on a 1 to 1 programme basis with patients in London, across the UK and around the world through my own clinic and Holistic Heart Centers of America, an integrative functional cardiology practice based in the United States. I also consult clinics, start ups and small businesses, design and run educational courses, trainings, events and wellness programmes or initiatives for both professional and public institutions.
I am a fully certified functional medicine practitioner (IFMCP) with the Institute for Functional Medicine and the only nutritional therapist and master herbalist with this qualification globally.
I studied Naturopathy, Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Ayurveda, Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, as well as Iridology with Peter Jackson-Main, Bach Flower Therapy with Healing Herbs, Coaching and Genetics & Nutrigenomics courses with other faculties.
I studied NLP and Hypnotherapy with the NLP Coaching Company, I am also a Bredesen MPI Cognition Practitioner, so am trained his Dr Bredesen’s protocol for reversing cognitive decline.
I am also undertaking a Fellowship in Endobiogenic Medicine at Loyola University in Chicago in 2018-2019.
I regularly travel to the USA to fulfil my CPD obligations for all my modalities. I further my knowledge my attending regular conferences in both the USA and Europe.
What to Expect in Your Consultation
After our initial phone assessment, I will send you a log in for my patient system to complete online before your appointment. This helps you to clarify your health goals and often makes you remember things you might have forgotten about! It also helps me to understand your wellness goals, medical history, your family medical history and also what might be driving your health concerns. There is also a genetic expression questionnaire to complete.
There is a food diary to complete (you can either upload pictures, videos or write descriptions), and I will ask you to upload, email or bring in any medical test results you may have, along with any supplements or pharmaceutical medication you’re taking so I can ensure you are taking these safely and that potentially dangerous depletions interactions may be mitigated.
