You’ve tried everything, and still don’t feel healthy?

Many of my clients have said they have tried ‘everything’. Often they have spent years chasing symptoms such as candida, digestive issues or fatigue with no real success. At this point, expert analysis and balancing of minerals is essential for achieving optimum health.

Minerals are the foundation of our health. Until we get our foundation right, it is very difficult to fix other underlying health conditions.

I also use my vast experience in gut and digestive health to further support the health of my clients.

The right route to health can vary from person to person, so I create an individualised plan using test results, mineral balancing, gut health and conventional nutritional advice.



I have successfully worked with clients who have a wide range of issues including:

  • Digestive symptoms
  • IBS
  • Infertility
  • Fatigue
  • Weight management
  • Food intolerances
  • Liver dysfunction
  • Poor sleep
  • Stress
  • Adrenal, thyroid or hormonal problems

I also work with complex and sensitive cases, children on the autism spectrum, PANDAS or PANS, or those with behavioural and learning difficulties.



We are all unique and have different imbalances, excesses and deficiencies of minerals, so ‘test don’t guess’. 

I offer Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) tests, this test measures the mineral content of hair (see sample opposite).

The test gives a huge amount of information such as adrenal, thyroid and digestive health, metabolism and hormonal balance. It also indicates the state of the cardiovascular and nervous systems and heavy metals.

The hair sample can be easily and painlessly obtained by a few simple snips rather than an invasive blood test. This also makes it simple and easy when testing children.

The sample can be taken at home and sent in the post with no need for a visit to the doctor or laboratory.

It is non-invasive and inexpensive compared to other tests.

I can analyse the tests for you and provide a personalised mineral and nutrient plan.



I am a qualified nutritionist and a certified HTMA practioner with a background in food science and drug safety. I also have a BSc degree in Food Science.
