Dip ION, MBANT CNHC
Tess started collaborating with Amberin Fur & Associates in 2019 bringing 7 years of experience in Nutritional Therapy and Functional Medicine. She qualified in Nutritional Therapy from the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition and continues to further her Functional Medicine training with the Institute for Functional Medicine. She has lectured at College for Naturopathic Medicine (Juicing for Health and Natural Chef) and has run exclusive health retreats both in the UK and abroad.
Having worked in financial services for many years, Tess can relate to clients experiencing the detrimental effect that stressful and long working hours, strict deadlines, corporate entertainment, surviving on very little sleep and plenty of caffeine can have on our bodies. After having experienced exhaustion with weight gain and an autoimmune condition as a result, Tess was inspired to use nutritional therapy to turn her health around.
Tess’s approach is focused on getting to the bottom of her clients’ health concerns by investigating potential root causes. Being a Nutritionist, Tess does of course review her clients’ diets however, using the principles of Functional Medicine she uses systems biology to understand and identify how core imbalances in specific biological systems can manifest in other parts of the body. This holistic approach merry well with her colleagues at Lfstyl to dig deeper into specific physiological processes that can be implicated in ill health including: nutrient deficiencies, biochemical imbalances, structural integrity, cellular defence and repair, energy production and biotransformation among others. The findings allow Tess and the team to create tailored programmes to address the root causes of the disease or dysfunction in each individual client.
Tess’s role at Lfstyl is to support clients both physically and mentally throughout their health journey. Her three-month program provides not only the structure and information needed to optimise a change, but the consistent weekly support to journey the patient towards that goal.
Tess fully believes that optimal nutrition together with the Lfstyl team of other specialists enables the body to reach optimal health in the quickest and most efficient way.
