About me

 

Rebecca Williams Dip HE, BSc (HONS), Dip CNM
Professional Member of BANT, CNHC, ANP

Our current healthcare system is so focused on ‘crisis’ intervention – everything tends to be disease orientated and is treated in isolation. The NHS is excellent at acute illness, however chronic diseases and illness sometimes pose more of a challenge.

I have a particular interest in helping people with:

Autoimmune conditions

Chronic health difficulties.

As well as a huge variety of other health issues & concerns for example:

Diabetes

Skin conditions

Respiratory conditions

Allergies

Food Intolerances

Sport Injury / recovery

Depression

Even if you do not have a definitive diagnosis, please do not hesitate to contact me and discuss to see if nutritional therapy can be of benefit to you.

 

Mission Statement

I am passionate about helping people who don’t fit into the boxes, or who have been told they can’t be helped and have to live with problem and just put up with it / manage it.

Having had first hand experience of working in the NHS as a registered nurse, for the last twenty years in a variety of clinical settings, as well as being a patient and being subject to the traditional medical model that is mainstream in our society, I have witnessed both sides to our current healthcare system.

I am convinced, there are other alternatives, nothing should be approached in isolation and I believe that specialities need to work together to complement each other. Only in that way, can we truly have a superior holistic healthcare system. Using the Functional Medicine model approach to nutrition can help to identify the root cause of symptoms and pave the way to better health.

 

My Journey

I have had a long journey towards improving my health and general wellbeing over the last ten years and nutrition has played a pivotal role in helping me to achieve this.

Up until my 30’s I hadn’t really been ill apart from the occasional cold. Then I became extremely stressed, overworked and run down. I contracted a virus and was trapped in a vicious cycle of debilitating illness over several years. No definitive diagnosis could be given and I just kept on hoping that things would improve, but without really knowing why or changing anything.

The first time I began to make the connection between my diet and ill health was when I tried goats’ yoghurt and happened to notice (I now know due to the probiotics) that it helped ease some of my symptoms.

I changed my job, started eating three healthy meals a day as well as exercising. Slowly, but surely my symptoms improved as did my overall health, but I was still in a lot of pain all over my body and didn’t really understand why. I was referred to the rheumatologist and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Because of my love of food and having realised the importance nutrition played in my overall health, I decided to train as a nutritional therapist. What I have learnt through my training has been transformational. I am here to share my knowledge and expertise with you, to help you take back control of your health.

Are you ready for a new chapter on your journey to improved health and wellbeing?
