Nutritional Therapy by Vanessa Alves
Hi I am Vanessa, a qualified Nutritional therapist from The College of Naturopathic Medicine and I work in North London at The Haelan Centre, 41 The Broadway, Crouch End, N8 8DT.
I look at the body as a whole (holistically) and examine possible root causes by looking at how the different systems of the body work together and impact each other. This allows me to get to the root problem and tailor a plan that is unique to you. The person is treated not the disease.
I have a particular interest in digestive health problems such as:
If/when necessary I can advise for and provide functional testing (e.g. food intolerance and/or allergy testing, comprehensive stool analysis and parasitology, adrenal stress profile etc). I am registered and work with reputable laboratories (CNS, Genova Diagnostics).
A follow-up appointment usually takes place about 6 weeks later and lasts about 30-45 minutes.
I will also ask you to take the time to fill in a 4 day food diary prior to your consultation. In addition to nutritional therapy I may also recommend other therapies which maybe of benefit to you, such as herbs, acupuncture, osteopathy, massage, homeopathy and Reiki. I am also a Reiki practitioner and can offer Reiki therapy in a separate session.
I am registered with the Naturopathic Nutrition Association and registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council. I am also fully insured.
I'm at the Haelan Clinic on the second Tuesday of the month from 11am until 2pm but I am available on request on other days and times. I am also available to travel to your home or office.
