Your most trusted source of Integrative Healthcare, Preventive Medicine & Applied Nutrition
You need preventive treatment in order to enjoy optimal health for as long as possible. Ideally, prevention should start with the day we’re born but unfortunately we’re not taught prevention strategies and we fail to notice subtle symptoms such as increasing fatigue or constantly low energy, a lack of zest for life, recurrent infections, frequent colds & flu – symptoms that should warn you that things are not alright.
Preventive medicine takes into account the whole individual and the total influences—biological, social, psychological, environmental—that affect health, including nutrition, exercise, sleep, relaxation, relationships, work satisfaction. Strategies used in preventive medicine include individualised therapeutics, lifestyle modification, genetic testing & patient education.
Bioregulatory Medicine is a multi-dimensional approach to health care that targets the root causes of disease, not just the symptoms. As the word “bioregulatory” implies, this type of medicine makes use of various natural therapeutics to regulate key biological processes in times of illness and support the body in its effort to return to balance and good health.
Why should you opt for this type of treatment instead of conventional therapies?
Because conventional therapies never address the true cause of disease, thus allowing the illness to progress unabated to a stage where it becomes a “labelled disease”. In contrast, bio-regulatory medicine stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself once the factors that create disease are corrected. These factors can be nutritional deficiencies or excesses, malabsorption, immune dysregulation, hormonal imbalances, intestinal dysbiosis, underlying infections, underfunctioning liver, chronic inflammation, toxin accumulation, incorrect pH & dysregulation of the biological terrain (the body’s signalling system).
If your antioxidant defence mechanism is overwhelmed or if your methylation capacity is limited (due to a genetic mutation in the MTHFR gene for example), this may result in oxidative stress: an overproduction of free radicals due to an inability to neutralise and eliminate them, leading to impaired cellular physiology and accelerated ageing.
A comprehensive anti-ageing therapy will address all of the factors described above and leave you feeling energised & revitalised.
ANTI-OXIDANT THERAPYThis might sound like a fad but it is one of the best therapeutic measures you can take to prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer and most chronic illness. A pre-requisite for glowing skin, it is part of all anti-ageing & rejuvenation treatments.
WEIGHTLOSSCaloric restriction does not work for losing weight. Our therapy for weightloss corrects the factors (dietary or lifestyle) that caused you to put weight on in the first place and these are different for everyone:hormonal imbalances, insulin resistance, intestinal dysbiosis, nutritional deficiencies, etc.
Genetic Testing for Optimal HealthGenetic testing can be used to fine-tune your therapeutic intervention & create a personalised health programme with specific dietary, exercise & lifestyle advice based on your unique genetic profile. We currently use the 45 Gene Test designed by the Canadian company NUTRIGENOMIX.
I am a certified nutritional therapist & homotoxicologist, having trained with the late, great Prof (Dr med rtd) M.F. KIRKMAN in Homotoxicology and Bio-regulatory Medicine in London & graduated in 2007 with Honours. Bio-regulatory Medicine bridges the gap between conventional & alternative medicine, incorporating the best from both. My main therapeutic modality is nutritional therapy which I studied as part of a Nutritional Medicine programme at Thames Valley University, London (2004-2007).
1hour Nutritional Consultation
During the consultation, I will take a full medical history that will reveal your unique nutritional needs and disease vulnerability. A full medical history includes all key medical events that you experienced since birth, your family history of disease, and past & present diet. By looking at the progression of your health over time, it becomes possible to detect clinical patterns and clusters of symptoms that are indicative of metabolic imbalances or nutrient deficiencies.
Price: EUR 99.00
Follow-up Nutritional Consultations (30min)
During the follow-up, I will review your progress on the current prescription and recommend other dietary changes, supplements that are appropriate for the next stage of your health programme. Most health issues are complex and cannot be solved with a “magic bullet” approach. Also the body needs time to make the necessary adjustments and to heal.
Your initial prescription will include the minimum amount of therapeutic measures that are meant to trigger healing. It will also focus on key areas such as improving digestive function or correcting nutritional deficiencies. Subsequent prescriptions will be more specific or target key organs, systems or body functions.
Every case should be reviewed at 6 weeks initially and at 2-3 months after that.

Your Personal Plan of Care
Although I will give you many insights during the consultation and help you make certain connections between your lifestyle/dietary behaviour and your health history, time is very limited and I won’t be able to convey all the information you need to know.
It has been found that people find it easier to comply with dietary and supplement programmes when they come to understand how particular dietary/lifestyle changes or specific nutrients improve their health.

ONE - Optimum Nutrition Evaluation
Clinicians commonly use such nutritional testing to determine the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of chronic conditions.
Price: GBP 340.00 (to be purchased directly from Genova Diagnostics). The interpretation fee is included in the price.
Genetic Testing for Optimum Health
This test can be used to fine-tune your therapeutic intervention with specific dietary, exercise & lifestyle advice based on your unique genetic profile.
Comprehensive Lab Tests
Prices vary depending on the test and the number of markers involved.
Based on your medical history, I will recommend specific tests for you at the initial consultation and order the kits to be sent to your home. Some of the most frequently used tests would be:
Cardio Profile (used to assess cardiovascular disease risk)
CardioGenomic Plus™ Profile (used to assess genetic susceptibility to heart disease)
Hormone Profile Test (a salivary hormone test for evaluating key hormone levels over a single day. Used for Mood instability, Anxiety, Fatigue, Poor Cognitive Performance, Weight gain, Low sex drive and performance issues, Sleep disturbances, Altered fat metabolism, Altered blood-sugar control, Vaginal atrophy, Hair Loss)
Complete Hormones Test (the most comprehensive urinary hormone test for investigating the underlying reasons behind Weight gain, Anxiety, Fatigue, Low sex drive and performance issues, Sleep disturbances, Mood instability, Brain fog)
