I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist DipION, mBANT, CNHC. I spent three years studying Functional Medicine at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. I’m also a Mum with Ménière's disease.
Originally from Newcastle, I now live in Hertfordshire with my husband and young daughter. After working in advertising for fourteen years, I became interested in nutrition after experiencing digestive issues, and decided to pursue a nutrition qualification.
When my Ménières symptoms were at their worst, vertigo made me scared to go out, afraid to go on holiday, and anxious to look after my daughter alone. I couldn’t drive, avoided busy places and had to step back from my busy corporate career. I was desperate for silence from the constant tinnitus and terrified the fluctuating hearing loss would become permanent deafness. It felt like my life was over.
Using my training as a Nutritional Therapist, and based on the latest research suggesting that Ménière's is a form of autoimmune disease, I made a number of dietary changes that helped me to identify the underlying causes of my symptoms, and ultimately to control them. By listening to what my body was telling me after eating different foods, I learned to support my immune system back to health.
Whilst I have not cured my Ménière's, I am now happily symptom-free, and am on a mission to help others support their health naturally.
If you are suffering with Ménière's, or an autoimmune disease or other health issue, and looking for ways to improve things, nutrition can be a surprisingly powerful tool.
