Are your genes affecting your health?
Do you suffer tiredness,migraines,anxiety,infertility?
This is a new and exciting field of natural medicine,one that I have developed a special interest in due to my own health challenges.
MTHFR is a gene involved with biochemistry in every cell in the body.If you have inherited these genes it may affect cellular energy production and detoxification and neurotransmitter balance in the brain.
I can test to see if you have MTHFR gene issues through blood tests or a DNA cheek swab.With nutritional medicine we are able to help the body overcome these inherited weaknesses.

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome
Are you feeling tired and rundown but your doctor says all your tests are ok?
Do you feel you are not coping with every day stressors as well anymore?
Our adrenal glands have to respond to stress by secreting cortisol. With today’s stressful and busy lifestyles our adrenal glands get fatigued and can’t keep up. It’s like you have flattened your battery and don’t have that get up and go that you used to rely on.
There are wonderful natural ways to recharge your adrenals using herbal and nutritional medicines.
Download and fillout the adrenal fatigue questionnaire to see if it’s possible that you have adrenal fatigue.
I often refer clients for an adrenal salivary profile test to confirm adrenal fatigue.
You can also download my Adrenal Fatigue Questionnaire here.
An under active thyroid can also cause tiredness and sluggishness.
You may feel the cold and find it hard to lose weight despite doing all the right things.
Subclinical hypothyroidism occurs commonly around menopause and often with adrenal fatigue.These two glands work hand in hand.
Using blood tests and some simple in house tests I can determine if an under active thyroid is contributing to your fatigue.

Leaky gut syndrome.IBS,SIBO and dysbiosis(the imbalance between the good and bad bacteria) leads to tiredness,inflammation,autoimmune disease.even depression and anxiety.
