I’m Karen Alexander and I practice Nutritional Therapy in Farnham, Surrey and Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. I also hold consultations via video call for long distance and international clients. I have an MSc with distinction in Personalised Nutrition and studied my Nutritional Therapy qualification at CNM London.
I’m passionate about helping people using my knowledge of nutritional science to promote health and vitality. I assess an individual’s unique influences that are preventing optimum health, to create a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan. I work on the basis that if you understand why your health may have deteriorated, and why you need to make changes, you’re much more likely to embrace your plan with excitement and longevity. I can show you how food and lifestyle can have a profoundly positive effect on health.
My own experience has not been smooth sailing and I have battled with an under-active thyroid diagnosed at 10 years old. This caused fatigue, anxiety, depression, exhaustion and painful inflammation of the gut which was not resolved until I started studying Nutritional Therapy and learnt how to help myself. My full story is on my blog. I know how difficult it can be to achieve the work/life balance which is required for good health, whether or not you suffer from a chronic health condition.
During a consultation I will review your complete health history and that of your family, ask about current and past symptoms, look at your diet and lifestyle, assess nutritional status and order functional testing when appropriate.
Please feel free to contact me directly to organise a one to one consultation.
