Michele Kingston

I was drawn to trying Nutritional Therapy when I fell ill some years ago and I was astounded at how discovering the cause and then using something as simple as food as my medicine could make such a difference to how I felt and start to bring my body back to health.

I have always been interested in science, particularly anatomy and physiology, and when I realised just how much of a scientific evidence-base there is for nutritional therapy, coupled with my own positive experiences of it’s power, I knew I had to learn more. I now have a degree in Nutritional Medicine from the Thames Valley University, which has provided me with a high standard of research-driven training.

My degree and extra curricular studying included naturopathy and functional medicine, giving me an excellent insight into holistic treatments with the view to offering my patients the best care possible.I am a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapy (BANT), which means I have trained to the highest national occupation standards, carry professional insurance, and will continue to train through monitored professional development programmes.

I currently work with private patients at Wilbraham Place Practice in South London, at Breakspear Medical Group in Hemel Hempstead and I do home visits in North London and Hertfordshire. I prefer not to specialise in one particular area due to the holistic approach that I take with each patient, nutrition heals the body as a whole and so the body should be viewed as a whole. Patients often suffer several seemingly random symptoms such as headaches, skin problems and joint pain and never think they are connected.

So would they see a skin or joint specialist? Should they have their symptoms separated and treated individually? I would say they needed to see someone who can see how symptoms could be linked together, trace them back to find the original cause and then treat it and this is what nutritional therapy aims to do.

I also work for Europe’s No.1 boot camp as part of their Nutrition Squad giving talks and one to one consultations to educate clients on how to eat for weight loss.

Plus I give talks to employees of law firms in the City on topics such as increasing energy and concentration and coping with stress.

Whether I am working one to one with patients or giving talks, my approach is warm, supportive and compassionate and my advice always focuses on being easy to follow, realistic and sustainable. I also think it is important that my clients understand the background to their treatment so I always aim to enlighten them about the science behind my suggestions.

Educating the general public as a whole about good nutrition is absolutely crucial as The World Health Organisation has said that one of the major risk factors for chronic disease is an unhealthy diet. So an important part of my job is writing in the media about health and diet related issues, I have been published in Metro International Newspaper in several countries around the world and also online on Yahoo lifestyle pages, The Huffington Post and Body In Balance TV.
