What are the naturopathic principles

that guide my work with you?

nutritional therapy & functional medicine

Restoring Health by addressing the underlying root causes.

As practitioners of naturopathic principles we do not treat symptoms.

This is like taking a painkiller and thinking it has solved the problem.  It has suppressed the symptoms whilst leaving the underlying cause unchanged.

One condition can have many causes, and one cause many conditions.

Personalised Health Programme through One to one consultations

Food as Medicine

Food contains potent chemicals which influence biochemical pathways in our bodies.

Knowing where imbalances lie in the body helps the functional medicine practioner target those pathways.

Naturopathic principles state that the body is designed to rebalance itself into a state of homeostasis. However, obstacles to healing need to be identified and removed, whether these be nutrient insufficiencies, stress, sleep, environmental pollutants, infections or food intolerances.

functional testing

Patient-centred, not disease centered.

Each individual has their own unique genetic code and biochemical differences which means there is no such thing as a one size fits all approach.

As such a naturopthic approach is also about treating the whole person. This takes into account everything about you including your stress levels, exercise, sleep and environmental challenges.

Health Challenges that a functional medicine approach can get to the heart of:

  • Digestive complaints
  • Anxiety, depression
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Fatigue
  • Inflammatory conditions: eg IBD
  • Healthy Ageing
  • Brain fog, headaches
  • Hormones
  • Autoimmunity
  • Allergies, asthma, eczema
  • Long Covid

What clients are saying…

Focus and Energy

There were times where I didn’t seem have enough energy and focus, and my exercise and sporting performance seemed to be on a downward spiral. Approaching 50, I assumed it was mostly age related, but I ‘did’ suspect more could be done in the nutrition department. With that in mind I sought Nicki’s help.

As it transpired, I had no idea how little I knew. The sessions with Nicki have been a great experience. Nicki goes into great detail on your diet, your body and even your mind. Her knowledge and research is first class. It is clear that a lot of work goes into preparing for each meeting, and the rationale for each action is well explained.

A few tweaks to diet and behaviours resulted in replenished energy, weight loss and a generally healthier complexion. Added to that, there seems every reason to suspect that I may have ‘dodged a few bullets’ for the future.

I can highly recommend.

I was worried I had Candida

I attended Nicki’s clinic three months ago after troublesome gastrointestinal symptoms and which had gone on for too long. I was very worried that I might have candida and was pleased to discover through stool testing that there were good reasons for why my gut biome was not all it could be but candida was not the reason.

Gone are the days of omeprazole and now with Nicki’s scrupulous attention to detail, I actually have a diet and lifestyle suggestions and specific probiotics which are targeted to my particular biome.

As a result, I have lost half a stone, am sleeping much better and due to her passionate interest in food and it’s importance, I have increased energy levels and substantially decreased stomach discomfort giving me a renewed ‘taste’ for life.

As a result, I am making friends with my intestines and enjoy a positive attitude to my better health for which I cannot thank Nicki enough.

IBS and anxiety.

I came to Nicki because  of my IBS, and because I suffer from health anxiety and other anxiety issues. I have gained so much valued information from her which is life changing. She has been so extremely helpful and her knowledge about nutrition and lifestyle is incredible.
She really does go above and beyond and exceeded my expectations.
I am ever so grateful to Nicki and the passion in what she does .

Weight Loss and cardiovascular

I am 77, and take medicines for my Heart, Blood Pressure, and Cholesterol, including Statins.
I had chronic Back Pain which caused me to crawl upstairs on all-fours, and a strained Heart that worried me whenever I felt stressed.
I was in a panic about gaining weight, despite eating very carefully.
I had taken myself off Dairy, and even tried Gluten-Free.
I decided I needed guidance from a trained Nutritionist who would teach me what was safe to eat, and to lose weight slowly and permanently.
I contacted Nicki, who has introduced me to a different lifestyle., which I really enjoy, and will continue for the rest of my days.
I now walk upstairs normally, without thinking about it, and I have no more Heart strain.
In 3-4 months I have lost 10 kilos, and have another 5 or so to go.
Firstly Nicki told me I was so afraid of what I was eating, I was actually eating too little!
My case could not have been an easy one for Nicki, because she had to work around all the Doctor’s pills I was taking.
I feel my life is back on track!

Macular degeneration

6 years ago during a routine cataract op it was found that I had an eye disease;  ‘Pseudoexfoliation syndrome’ and also that the blood supply to the retina was extremely poor. This led to 3 years of monthly eye injections and multiple eye drops but the condition did not improve. I was then diagnosed with the beginning of macular degeneration in the other eye.

I came to Nicki who recommended some dietary and lifestyle changes and she asked me to take some specialised supplements for eye health.This I did.

At my last check up I was told both eyes had stabilised and I haven’t needed an injection for 8 months.

I know this is due to the excellent and professional care and advice I’ve received from Nicki.

Gastrointestinal limitations and bladder problems

I’m 64 and have had problems for many years with my bladder and bowel not functioning properly. I’ve even been seeing a urologist for a couple of years and on medication which I’ve now stopped.

I thought that I had a good balanced diet. However my symptoms including depression were getting worse. Since starting with Nicki and her holistic approach I’m slowly getting better and I ecognise I’m on a journey. It’s like learning a new language but so worthwhile. I feel as if at long last I’ve met the person who is helping me get to the bottom (no pun intended) of my problems and helping me understand what I have to do to change my system and my life. Her knowledge is amazing and she treats you with understanding and patience. She has been so helpful and I can’t thank her enough.

Sports Performance

I am a vegetarian with food allergies, and asthma and I felt that I wasn’t getting enough of the right nutritional content in my diet. I also enjoy competing in Triathlons, mostly Ironman distance, and needed help to improve my performance.

I have since made many improvements with Nicki’s guidance, and I am even getting PB’s (personal bests) !!

Nicki is very passionate about Natural Nutritional Health……( we are what we eat)  and her knowledge and research is boundless.

Macular degeneration, pre-diabetes and overweight

Nicki Spicer began working with me early in 2020. I had a number of medical conditions including macular degeneration in my right eye and a diagnosis of being close to Type 2 diabetes. She analysed my state of health and advised on a range of dietary and life-style changes. The results so far have been heartening. There has been no further deterioration in my eyes and I have both lost weight and dropped to the bottom of the pre-diabetic scale. I am hopeful that further improvements will be made over the coming months.
Throughout I have been impressed by Nicki’s professionalism and the skill and thoroughness with which she carries out her work. She recognised the difficulties I might have in making the adjustments needed to remedy my issues and was sympathetic and realistic in her advice. I am continuing to work with her.

Long history of sensitivities and unexplained symptoms

I came to Nicki pretty desperate with my health,  having also suffered from Covid-19 then from Long Covid. In 6 months I am feeling better than I have done in years. I am myself again. I can thoroughly recommend her.
