Nutrition & Functional Medicine for Optimal Health

Your body needs nutrition to look, feel and function at it's healthy best. Poor diet, stress and modern day living will not only upset the body's natural equilibrium but also combine to deplete you of essential nutrients.

When your body lacks sufficient nutrition and its physiological systems and processes are struggling, your health is compromised.

My aim is to help you avoid this from happening in the first place, but more often than not for all sorts of reasons it takes signs and symptoms of nutritional dysfunction and body imbalance to appear before people reach out for help with their nutrition and health.

What is Functional medicine?

Functional medicine is all about personalisation and strengthening the body as a whole.

1. Personalisation

You are unique and the underlying causes and triggers of any health challenges that you may experience in life is likely to be different from someone else presenting with the same symptoms as you.

2. Strengthening

Functional medicine recognises that the mind and body are connected and seeks to determine where the roots of your symptoms lie before placing emphasis on working to restore, plus protect those underlying triggers of imbalance. The focus is always on optimal nutrition plus functioning of the body and its organs, using a holistic approach.

Success stories

"I used to binge eat. This I believe is part of hypothyroidism which I was diagnosed with several years ago. And even though I struggled with my weight, energy and mood I didn't want to take any drugs for my thyroid condition.

I was also “addicted” to coffee, always tired and craving sweet things. I was unhappy and feeling like there was something missing in my life, but I couldn’t complain because I had everything any person would dream of.

And then, I started working with Nicola.

At first, we talked about my health, life and what I wanted most. I told her that I’d like “the full package” - to have better health, lose weight, more energy, feel happy and take care of myself without feeling guilty. She listened to me without judgment. I felt understood.

Working with Nicola was a life changing experience. At the end I felt physically healthier and emotionally stronger. I’d also lost 8 kilos, dropped a dress size, looked younger and was full of energy.

It was not only about my health and weight. By working with Nicola, I succeeded in putting words to my feelings. I realised that I had lost my identity, and that this voice inside me was begging me to do something about it. Nicola helped me to hear this voice.

Today, I’m no longer the tired Mum. I enjoy sharing quality time with my family, have started a new career and feel happy with life.

Thank You Nicola!"

Her knowledge of health and wellbeing has really helped me change habits. The functional gut test I did not long after having Covid-19 was eye-opening and I appreciated her clear and thorough explanation of the results. She has shown how I can integrate what I am learning into my lifestyle and shared delicious recipes. I have valued her holistic approach and her professionalism."
