My Health Struggle

I started my journey towards functional medicine in 2012. Like you, or possibly someone you know, I struggled with constant and extreme tiredness. Although tiredness does not even begin to describe the bone deep fatigue and weariness experienced no matter how much sleep I had. I had night wakings and night sweats, gut issues like bloating and gas, painful stomach cramps with alternating diarrhoea and constipation. I also had acid reflux, reacted to various foods and was scared of eating. It was so difficult to pinpoint which foods could cause symptoms to appear or worsen them. I suffered from achy joints and muscles, brain fog, hair loss which was the last straw, and the list goes on. I couldn’t play with my children, have fun with my family, or go out with friends and even thinking of going to work to do a job I love was enough to make me ill and just want to curl my achy body in bed and stay put. I had a standing weekly appointment with different doctors for a while, which caused so much stress and discontentment as no one could help.

Discovery of Functional Medicine

I started researching ways to help myself. I was lucky and found lots of information, they were often disjointed and in lots of different places. Some of the information helped, while others did not, but I was able to start putting together protocols which gradually started to make me feel more human again.

Since 2016 I have undergone extensive training which has helped me better understand how to be a more vibrant and healthier version of myself and those I have worked with. The difference is as clear as night and day. I want to be able to do this for you too.

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in functional medicine, holistic nutrition, health coaching, and the use of state-of-the-art testing. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways, and protocols that help produce real and lasting results. With my help, you will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.

My Training

In the search for better health for my family and I, I decided to retrain as a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Nutritionist, and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I’ve trained with the Functional Nutrition Alliance, Institute of Integrative Nutrition, Functional Medicine University, the Kharrazian Institute, the Kresser Institute ADAPT Level One Practitioner Training Program and other prestigious teachers in the field of total body and especially, gut health. I am committed to further learning to keep me on top of current research, and the best ways to help people like you overcome and prevent chronic illnesses.

Client Testimonials

Toki is a wonderfully knowledgeable lady. I had been gradually becoming more poorly over several years and was told that there was nothing wrong with me by GP's. I went to Toki as a last resort in desperation that I knew something wasn't right. The testing was very thorough and my treatment was incredibly successful, I now feel I have my life back. I would not hesitate to contact Toki and her team again or recommend her to other people.
