I also will endeavour to educate, equip and support you, helping you to make sustainable changes and know why you want to make them.

What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is a holistic discipline, which looks at the body as a whole and all of the different systems within it. I look for the root cause of symptoms, not unlike a detective, enabling me to treat what is causing your body to be out of balance rather than just treating your symptoms.
IBS, Crohns, Diverticulitis
The gut microbiome plays a vital role in human health and influences the development of chronic diseases ranging from metabolic disease to gastrointestinal disorders. Dietary habits have a profound effect on shaping gut microbiota and therefore play a key role in the prevention or acceleration of disease.
Thyroid, Type 1 & 2 Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Addison's Disease
Nutritional support can play an integral role in the successful management of endocrine diseases. Food is considered as important environmental factor that plays a role in development of endocrine imbalances. Research has been able to pinpoint specific nutrients that are vital in the functioning of our endocrine systems, reducing the risk of disease.
Hashimoto's, Type 1 Diabetes, MS, Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis etc
The association between diet and the risk of developing inflammatory autoimmune diseases is a well known one. It is thought that due to the consumption of highly processed foods as well as other factors, it predisposes our bodies to chronic inflammation paired with other increasing risk factors for autoimmune diseases. Deal with our diets, the risk for autoimmunity decreases.
PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, menopause
Balanced nutrition can aid fertility, optimise maternal health throughout pregnancy, as well as helping to regulate and stabilise the menstural cycle. Women's health is vital throughout all stages of life.
Eczema, Acne, Psoriasis
Nutrition has long been associated with skin health, with many chronic skin conditions being shown to be critically affected nutritional interventions and dietary patterns.
Obesity, Type 2 diabetes, Blood Pressure, Cholesterol
It has been found that increasing fruit, vegetables and protein intake, as well as reducing certain foods can greatly impact metabolic health.
Chronic stress, Depression, ADHD
Multiple studies have found a correlation between a diet high in refined sugars and impaired brain function — and even a worsening of symptoms of mood disorders, such as depression.
"I had been suffering with Perioral Dermatitis for months. I had unsuccessfully tried every cream and steroid cream from my GP, they just made things even worse. I was so unhappy with being literally faced with this problem every day and I couldn’t even wear makeup to cover it up. After talking to Joy, I implemented some simple tweaks of diet and supplements and a few months later my skin has never been clearer!"
