I specialise in gastrointestinal health and fatigue, with an additional focus on nervous and endocrine health. Coming from a naturopathic background I am fascinated by how the various systems we have compartmentalised the body into are all interconnected in countless ways.
Thus although gastrointestinal health and fatigue are my speciality, I look for driving factors of disease such as hormonal imbalances, toxicity, inflammation, stress, nervous system health, sleep imbalances, underlying infections, nutrient imbalances, food sensitivities, biochemistry and our genetic predisposition to biochemical imbalances.
For example it is now known that the communication between the gastrointestinal system and the brain is bidirectional and inflammation in the gut can cause inflammation in the brain and vice versa. Thus conditions such as depression, loss of cognitive capacity ('brain fog'), Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease may have their cause in gut imbalances even when there are no overt gastrointestinal symptoms. Conversely gastrointestinal issues may have their roots in inflammatory conditions affecting the brain, such as physical trauma to the head, emotional trauma, glycemic stress, excitotoxicity and depression.
I offer genetic testing which enables me to tailor treatment to your genes as I learn about your inherent strengths and weaknesses.
Better than medication

CNM is a brilliant college, they have a great modular system which allows modern busy people with multiple responsibilities to study at a pace they can manage.
I studied with CNM in Brighton - It was the most amazing course which changed my life! The tutors are fantastic and I loved every minute.
Just completed a short course in nutrition for everyday living - was fantastic. Very well delivered, intensive but learnt so much - already making a huge impact on my everyday health. Thank you Marianna!
I am a student in Nutrition and I absolutely love my course !! High academic standard and great lecturers ! Highly recommend it
I am now in my final year of Acupuncture and have enjoyed every single minute of my 4 years here. What an amazing experience with inspirational tutors who have opened my eyes to a whole new way of living. Studying and learning at CNM enabled me to carry on with my job whilst also completing my course. I have made so many friends, connections and had an awesome time along the way. If you are thinking about retraining then I would highly recommend it !!! More...
The CNM brand has really helped me propel my career in the wellness space and if I had more time, I would love to take more courses at the Percy Circus Campus. I have completed the Natural Chef course, but would be interested in doing the Herbs and Bio Med courses. The CNM staff are very friendly, knowledgable and professional! More...
I studied Nutritional Therapy at CNM and qualified in 2016. I am so pleased I decided to retrain when I did. I was 32 and hadn't studied for 10 years and although it was a lot of work alongside my full-time job, it was definitely worth it. The quality of teaching and lecturers kept me motivated and I knew I was going to come out with the skills I needed to start seeing clients straight away. Lifestyle related disease and illness are at an all-time high and I want to help my clients to regain control of their health. More...
