  • Depression, anxiety and fatigue
  • Weight gain, loss maintenance
  • Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol
  • Fertility, pregnancy, and post-natal care
  • Childhood and adolescent nutritional requirements

Nutritional medical practitioners recognise underlying mechanisms  involved in disease, states and explain how to treat or prevent them with dietary changes, lifestyle adjustment, and nutritional supplementation.

As a holistic practitioner James collaborates with his clients to create treatment plans together, where all aspects of the client's health, lifestyle, and goals are taken into consideration. During a consultation, Jame's works with his clients to explore their health history, current conditions, lifstyles habits and physical signes of nutrient insufficiencies. Evidence-based nutritional medicine draws on well-researched use of food and nutritional supplements to support and promote the body's natural healing processes
