Rebecca is a fully qualified and accredited Nutritional Therapist. She studied Naturopathic Nutrition for 3 years at the College of Naturopathic Medicine and is accredited with BANT (British Association of Nutrition Therapy) and CNHC.
Outside of her clinic she is a practitioner at the well known London Clinic of Nutrition and lectures for the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Manchester.
Her passion for helping people with nutrition comes from her own 12 year personal battle with chronic disease.
At 13 years old she was diagnosed with CFS/ME (chronic fatigue) and left in a wheelchair, unable to go to school from crushing fatigue, aching muscles, severe light sensitivity, noise sensitivity and brain fog, to name a few. Unfortunately the doctors couldn’t help and gave her a prognosis that there was nothing to be done.
After suffering ill health throughout her teenage years (down to 5-10% on the fatigue scale) she worked with Dr Myhill at the age of 18, who takes the same holistic approach, she began looking at the ROOT CAUSE of the chronic fatigue – mitochondria dysfunction, adrenal fatigue, candida infection, leaky gut etc. she changed her diet overnight, started to take nutritional supplements and for the first time in 5 years was seeing results.
At the age of 21 she was then finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease, Rebecca was bitten by a tick at the age of 8 years old. You can now see how her health deteriated from 8-13 years old.
Rebecca was tested through Armin labs and found benefits from taking the Cowden Support Protocol, a whole host of tailored nutritional supplements, changes in diet, lifestyle, personality traits, strict pacing, good sleep, learning to love herself and to have faith in herself.
Rebecca is happily married, and is now running around after baby Noah and Fudge the Cockapoo (whom she also healed from Gastroenteritis). Aswell as being very involved in her church and has a busy social life. Pretty good for someone who was told she was too severe of a case, and that she would have to accept and learn to live with her condition hey…
Recovery is possible. Alongside the correct interventions and when supporting the body with the right nutrition and the right environment, recovery is possible.
Outside of work she loves nothing more than quiet time at home or the Lake District. Weekends tend to be walks with the family, with a pit stop at a good coffee shop. The kitchen is the centre of the home, with homemade food for everyone to share. Yoga, cleaning and reading are her therapy in life.
