I am on a mission to help transform your health using food and lifestyle approaches backed by science…   

Everyone deserves to be full of vitality and energy so it’s good to know that health is something we can build, nurture and protect. 
We’re aware that specific lifestyles are bad for us. We shouldn’t smoke or drink too much alcohol, we should move more and avoid eating too much sugar and salt. But perhaps a less familiar idea is to use food as medicine to support immune health, hormone health, vascular health, brain health, energy and happiness. 
Our diets are the most significant driver of chronic disease here in the UK. Allergies, autoimmune conditions, type 2 diabetes, dementia, mental health, gut health, cardiovascular health and certain cancers are just some of the conditions associated with gut health. 
Medicines and over the counter preparations rarely treat the root causes of chronic disease. They merely tackle the symptoms. By helping you discover the root cause of your health condition and by understanding the biology that drives disease, restoring and maintaining health becomes a realistic goal. 
Good health is not just about avoiding unhealthy lifestyle choices, it's also about incorporating good choices and food is central to this. By using the functional medicine approach and changing what we eat and our lifestyles we can reverse numerous chronic diseases and improve our health and wellbeing. My goal is to help you ‘eat well and live well to be well’. 
REMEDY is here to show you how.

Eating for better health   

Eat whole 
Choosing whole food and avoiding highly processed food is the most important step in eating your way to better health. Whole foods are complex, nutritionally rich, and act as prebiotics encouraging the growth of our good gut microbes. 
Eat the rainbow 
By eating a ‘rainbow’ of colours daily we are more likely to consume the complex range of vitamins,minerals and phytonutrients needed to build and sustain health. Colourful foods also act as prebiotics that help support our beneficial gut microbes. 
Eat variety 
Variety is key to health. By choosing from an array of complex foods ensures we consume all the important nutrients and helps support a diverse gut microbiota. 
Balance means looking at the makeup of your plate. Appropriate amounts of micronutrients, beneficial fats, proteins and carbohydrates ensure all our body systems function optimally. 
Time restricted eating also helps hormone levels to rebalance and lowers inflammation. It is better for overall health to eat meals 2-3 times a day within a 10-12-hour window. 
Eat mindfully 
The connection between emotions and food is one laid down from birth. Understanding these patterns is the key to unlocking poor habits.
