I qualified as a doctor in 1996 and practised for 4 years. Although no longer practising as a doctor I can draw on my medical knowledge and experience to help treat patients with a wide variety of conditions.
A diagnosis of ME/CFS in 1998 presented a huge challenge, but through a combination of nutritional therapy, homoeopathy, acupuncture and osteopathy I made a full recovery. This journey taught me that the body has an amazing power to heal itself, if it is given the right support, environment and nourishment, and also gave me an interest in complementary medicine. I joined the British Society of Ecological Medicine in 1999 and attended several of their teaching modules in allergy, environmental and nutritional medicine. I have four children and have learned much about a natural approach to health through the various illnesses and health complaints that they have had.
In 2009 I came across NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique) and saw great improvements in my own health using NAET. I attended the NAET Basic and Advanced training modules in 2010 to qualify as a NAET Practitioner. I have since attended NAET Advanced 2 courses in Munich in 2011, Amsterdam in 2013 and London in 2015, as well as regular training sessions in the UK. I have been treating patients with NAET with great success since 2010.
I have recently qualified as a Mitochondrial Rescue Practitioner and I am very excited to add Mitochondrial Rescue Therapy to the treatments available to me to help patients on their journey of healing. I will be using it alongside NAET to support and speed recovery.
Alongside my work as a health practitioner, I am a campaigner and speaker on the topic of health effects from wireless technology and electrohypersensitivity. I have lectured many times on these subjects, including at the Get Wired seminars in 2013 and 2016. I am a medical adviser to SSITA (Safe Schools Information Technology Alliance), who work to raise awareness of the health issues from WiFi and other wireless technologies in schools, nurseries and colleges. Through SSITA I am in regular contact with scientists and campaigners who are active in this field, as well as parents of children who have been adversely affected by WiFi in their schools. I am also a member of PHIRE (Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment) founded by Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe. I am able to advise clients on how to reduce their exposure and risk from wireless radiation and have equipment to measure levels of wireless radiation and electromagnetic fields in clients' homes.
In 2012 I co-founded Stop Smart Meters (UK) with Mike Mitcham, and appeared before the Energy and Climate Change Select Committee overseeing the UK smart meter roll-out in April 2013, on behalf of Stop Smart Meters (UK), to give evidence on the health risks from wireless radiation.
