Meet Clinical Nutritionist
DipNNT CNM, mNNA, mCNHC, mGNC (Assoc)
Hi, I’m Charlotte, Registered Nutritionist, consulting in person in Kent /Sussex / Surrey borders and also nationwide online. Regardless of location, I help people take back control from gut health issues including IBS, IBD, SIBO, bloating, flatulence, acid reflux, heartburn, GORD and more, to live happier, healthier lives.
Not to mention the symptoms that can go hand in hand with an unhappy gut, such as sleep disturbance, skin complaints, cravings, stubborn weight and low mood. The gut & brain are so connected that symptoms of poor health in mind and body often occur simultaneously.
Mum to two teens and keen forager, I also have advanced DBS clearance due to work in schools & Cache Level 2 in Understanding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
I've been where you are, and know how all consuming health issues can be! Diagnosed with IBS, insomnia, anxiety and GORD in my thirties, (before I knew about the trigger foods and nutritional deficiencies at the heart of my issues), I struggled to face the demands of a busy life and worried for my future.
I was quite literally sick and tired of feeling sick and tired! Deciding to forgo the raft of prescriptions offered that didn’t seem like the right solution for me, I set about taking control of my recovery. I consulted a Naturopath and read up about how nutrition could help my issues, culminating in recovery, that led me to three years spent studying Biomedicine & Nutrition with the award winning College of Naturopathic Medicine.
Now, these issues are behind me and I’m on a mission to help others find answers and gain control, through nutritional therapy. Together, we can uncover the root cause of your gut health issues with solutions that truly benefit your health, instead of adding further symptoms and side effects. Working together to create a plan tailored to your specific needs and goals, that is so much more than counting calories.
Through small, sustainable diet and lifestyle changes and carefully selected supplements, we give your body the tools it needs to restore and optimise your health and function optimally. This evidence based, practical and personalised nutrition advice has my clients at the Dandelion Natural Health Clinic not just surviving, but thriving!
“The difference since taking the supplement and addressing my stress is HUGE.
I am bewildered. I thought I was eating all the right things but now realise why I
wasn't absorbing [nutrients] properly. Anxiety has gone from 10 to 1.
Thankyou for being so lovely. You've made a remarkable difference to me.”
Why Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional therapy is true 'healthcare'
The functional medicine framework we use sees you as a whole - body, mind, environment, experiences... it ALL adds up to your health. We don't diagnose or 'cure' illness but can provide valuable support for the body to heal itself, and work integratively alongside medical care.
We break the body down to systems - although symptoms may be present in one, how another system is functioning can affect it (e.g. gut health can be affected by stress, your headaches may be a sign of an overworked liver or food intolerance, skin conditions can be the result of an unhappy bowel). We investigate all systems and have access to further testing if desired.
Our first consultation gets to the root of how best to support you to feel better. To keep it that
way, follow ups adjust & track progress. Dietary & lifestyle changes are suggested. Supplements can be carefully selected if needed, checking compatibility with other treatment you may be having, or against any current medications for interactions. You're in safe hands.
