The Surrey Centre for Nutrition Approach

Services

At the Surrey Centre for Nutrition we use a tailored and personalised functional medicine approach to uncover the root causes and triggers of disease. This is not a symptoms approach. Symptoms are merely the physical manifestations of an underlying biochemical or physiological imbalance. We use symptoms analysis and functional and nutritional testing to guide our clinical decisions making.

We then use nutritional therapy as an intervention to target these identified imbalances thus supporting the body back to health.

Clinical Focus Area

Autoimmunity

There are currently over 80 different autoimmune conditions identified, with the most frequently diagnosed being rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Others include;
Psoriasis - Eczema - Dermatitis - Chrons disease - Coeliac Disease - Multiple Sclerosis - Systemic Lupus - Addisons Disease - Graves Disease

Autoimmune conditions can affect any system of the body including the joints, bones and skin, the digestive system, the nervous system, the endocrine (hormonal) system, and can be life altering and debilitating. Using a functional medicine approach targeted at understanding the root cause of your autoimmunity and nutritional approaches also targeted at these causes rather than at the symptoms, I will support you in returning to a life of health.

Clinical Focus Area

Weight Loss

Weight loss clinic clients have often tried every diet and exercise regime with little or no luck, or their weight loss has plateaued. The simple reason for this is that weight loss is not always so simple. There are a number of complexities behind weight gain which need to be unpicked to achieve your weight loss goals.

Factors that can contribute to the inability to lose weight include;
- Hormonal changes
- Toxicity and poor detoxification
- Calorie restriction
- Restriction of FAT from the diet
- Pre diabetes and diabetes

Excess weight can contribute to high levels of inflammation in the body and result in the presence of other symptoms and diseases. Choosing to lose weight is one of the most important things you can do for your overall health and happiness.

I will help you identify the root cause of your weight gain and target these with personalised nutritional approaches designed for sustainable and long term weight loss.

Testimonials

Libby's knowledge and expertise in nutrition has helped me greatly improve my life. She has enabled me to better understand the connection between my body and what I fuel it with, which has led to increased vital energy levels. I highly recommend Libby to anyone seeking to improve their health and well-being.

Raj, Actor

Before I started seeing Libby I was struggling with knowing what to eat, I was overweight and needed to lose weight. I was feeling frustrated, as I didn't know how to progress. Working with Libby has given me control over what I eat in a positive and empowering way. I have learnt what works specifically for me and underlying issues which may have been holding me back. I have lost all the weight I wanted to, and more importantly I have an understanding of how to nourish my body long term. If anyone is considering working with Libby, I would say go…

Hannah

Libby helped me to understand what's good for my body explaining everything in a very simple way. Her advice is doable and easy to employ and it focuses on the general well being rather than just weight loss. She's also very approachable and always available to reply to questions you might have once you've started changing your habits.

Martina

Libby has given me practical help with developing a more rounded approach to food, one that also impacts on my entire wellbeing. I have always been susceptible to emotional eating and making snap choices in times of stress. Libby has given me tips to make considered choices and has helped shift my thinking to a position of nourishment, rather than starving myself. I have goals to lose some weight and re-balance my blood sugars and Libby's solid advice is helping me make that achievable and part of my everyday life.

Sarah, Digital Producer

I sought advice from Libby because of a significant weight loss following an illness, subsequent operation and prolonged stay in hospital. Prior to seeing Libby, my weight had shown no signs of recovering but, following Libby’s recommended changes to my diet, over a three month period I am now back to my pre operation weight. Additionally previous digestive symptoms have also been positively influenced, due, I am sure, to the dietary changes recommended by Libby. Friends and family all say how much better I am looking!

Tom, Retired
