I developed psoriasis at the age of 14. Throughout my 20s I was hospitalised either as an outpatient or inpatient, twice per year. Eventually, I was prescribed two strong drugs (cyclosporin & methotrexate) to suppress the condition so I could lead a more normal life. Although my skin did improve, three years later I had lost my motivation and I struggled to focus on anything of substance.
Unable to go on in the same vein I decided to stop the medication completely. This marked the beginning of a shift in my perception. Once the medication was stopped, so did the suppression of my condition. I began seeking solutions from Ayurveda to spiritual healing. It wasn’t until I tried fasting that I started seeing any results. This led me to look into gut health and Nutritional Therapy.
I studied at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London to further my understanding of my own health problems and learn how I could help others. I also took additional training in nutrigenomics which taught me that the medications I was taking are contraindicated with my genetic disposition. I was fascinated to find that so many chronic health conditions are rooted in similar mechanisms disrupting metabolic equilibrium. Having regained my own health, my mission is to support the health of others. The core of this approach is by way of nutritional science and lifestyle medicine.
I am a member of the British Association for Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) and the Complimentary & Natural Health Council (CNHC). To further my professional development and keep myself up to date, I regularly attend conferences and courses on the latest developments in the field.
