Learn about Elliot

For as long as I can remember, I have been intrigued by alternative healing methods and traditional herbal medicine. After developing some minor health issues of my own after an extended back-packing trip through Asia,  I decided to take responsibility and began researching ways by which I could find resolution without the use of pharmaceutical medications. I soon discovered that the solution to my problems was rooted in nutrition and basic lifestyle principles. 

My own experience, and the experience of those close to me, demonstrated the power of nutritional intervention. My success in improving my own health journey inspired me to study nutrition at a professional standard so that I could go on to help others along the way. I trained as a nutritional therapist at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in the UK, and later gained a qualification in Functional Medicine. 

 

I am now currently undertaking an Advanced Fellowship in Anti-Aging, Metabolic & Functional Medicine with A4M. At the same time, I am also part-way through a bachelors in Botanical Medicine & Phytotherapy, which I plan to complete by 2021/2. 

My approach to tackling health complaints 

Although my technical specialism is in nutrition, solely focusing on changing your diet is likely not enough to effectively manage an established health condition. To achieve the best results, a truly holistic approach to your lifestyle is necessary. This encompasses making changes to the foods you eat, but also the way that you eat and the timing of your meals. Furthermore, it also involves adopting ways to manage daily stress and optimise your sleep quality and quantity. Nutrition is no antidote to a sedentary lifestyle, or in contrast, a routine which involves over-training and unnecessary physical stress. The appropriate implementation of botanical (herbal) support can also yield benefits in many scenarios. These are all factors which I take into consideration when working with clients, and often need to each be addressed simultaneously to facilitate healing. 

Through working individually with people on a one-to-one basis, I incorporate the principles of naturopathic philosophy, nutritional science, and functional medicine into a holistic formula which can be practically applied to people's lives. I attempt to pair complex scientific research with frank common-sense to provide long-term, sustainable solutions for people looking to regain health and vitality. My approach is based on the notion that the human body possesses an innate intelligence, and when provided with the correct raw materials and environmental conditions, it is able to correct most problems itself.
