Jo decided to become a nutritional therapist after witnessing the benefit of nutritional therapy on her own health and wellbeing. Prior to re-training, she spent 17 years in a variety of retail, sales and marketing roles in the home entertainment industry, and understands the challenges of combining a healthy lifestyle with a busy, stressful job. She has particular interests in digestive health, energy management and nutrition for endurance sports. Jo is a regular contributor to Women's Running magazine, where she writes the 'Food in the News' page. She has also been featured in Men's Health, Women's Fitness and Running Fitness magazines.
Jo lives and works in Chiswick, London W4. She enjoys running, swimming, cycling and hill walking....and all the (healthy) food that she can eat to fuel her exercise sessions!
Jo invests in her continuing education each year and in 2011 attended and completed the inaugural Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP™-UK) training in London. Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function. The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.
