Hi, I’m Nic and I am a registered Naturopathic Nutritional therapist trained in Hair Mineral Analysis working in the Brighton, Hove and Shoreham areas. I first discovered the connection between diet, lifestyle and health in my mid-thirties when I was working in a stressful teaching job and I ended up completely burning myself out due to the various stressors my body was experiencing. I subsequently went on to develop symptoms of chronic fatigue (extreme lethargy, head fog and food sensitivities are just some of the symptoms) and eventually I was diagnosed with “Chronic fatigue syndrome” (CFS). As I began to research possible causes of my symptoms, I cleaned up my diet, discovered nutritional therapy and began to see some big improvements when I also made some lifestyle changes. I realised I wanted to support other people too and decided to study naturopathic nutrition at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. I am a mum of one and I work with children and adults with complex health issues to help them get to the bottom of their health symptoms. Each person is unique and I recommend a personalised programme including lifestyle recommendations and the right food to eat based on your biochemical individuality. I am an advocate of food-based nutrition as this is how Mother Nature intended us to get our nutrients. I use foods, herbs and mostly food-state supplements in my programmes for optimal absorption and bioavailability. I am a member of BANT (British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy) and registered with the the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council).
