We do this to optimise health. PRO-TIP: Don’t ignore warning signs.

SAFE. CLINICAL. PRACTICAL. EFFECTIVE. Does it always include functional nutrition? 


In London our modern lifestyle means chronic back pain and chronic health concerns recur. —->>>  Why?

Is it stress? What makes us tired all the time? Get stubborn belly fat, skin conditions and poor hair health?
Can  functional nutrition boost performance by a notch after osteopathy?

OSTEOPATHY, NUTRITION CONT’D

When’s the best time to have osteopathy?

Posture and Health

Our total body wellness on optimal homeostasis or balance. Form and function. The best way to visualise these two is via our posture. Our posture and health are interconnected.

Are you fatigued at work? Bloated or experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms of stress and anxiety? Chest pains? Feel like you cannot breath properly, you have aches in your joints? Poor posture can lead to an impairment to blood flow through the chest. This strains the blood vessels below the chest to produce a weakness in blood flow to the brain and cause fatigue (Orthostatic intolerance).

Nutrition and health

An internal chemical and hormonal imbalance sets us up for illness. One example can be seen in this study linking Low Immune Function and Intestinal Bacterial Imbalance to the Etiology of Rheumatoid Arthritis. There’s a case for diet and lifestyle alone to be a potential cause of non specific chronic lower back pain. Osteopaths look to treat the cause of pain or disease. Our training includes studying the pathophysiology of disease. Inflammation must exist for a reason. Pain, therefore, must exist for a reason. Put simply, poor posture from lower back pain or an injury we are accommodating for leads to our disrupted patterns of healthy:

(i) breathing (ii) digestion (iii) sleep (iv) responses to nutrition  (v) respones to stress

Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, recognised by the NHS. Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems. Susannah’s osteopathic and functional food philosophies see her use lifestyle and nutrition to improve symptoms of chronic illness and chronic pain successfully.


Osteopathy, Nutrition

The Missing Link In Functional Care. A clinical background in Osteopathy Matters. 6 Reasons – Osteopathy, Nutrition.

  1. Osteopathy seeks to find dysfunction whilst examining and treating the body as a whole.
  2. Using the understanding of disease pathophysiology and pain pathways in history taking and physical examination are the greatest diagnostic tools of the osteopath.
  3. Correctly identify the cause or causes linked to why you are seeking nutritional therapy to begin with are the only way to deliver the correct therapy or therapy as treatment.
  4. “You can have inflammation without pain, but there is no pain without inflammation” One cause of pain is metabolic and a type or stage of inflammation indicates the presence of homeostatic imbalance. Both osteopathy and naturopathy adhere to the principle helping to create the right environment for optimal homeostatis (balance) means that the body will heal itself as it does in nature, to the best of its ability.
  5. Clinically, the most common tests to diagnose inflammation include measuring erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), white blood cell count, and albumin levels (and other biomarkers) These tests are nonspecific; that is, an abnormal result might result from a condition unrelated to inflammation. If you are seeking solutions by way of nutritional therapy, recognising signs and symptoms of acute, sub-acute and chronic inflammatory process, as well as being able to interpret laboratory reports thus, is unique and invaluable when it comes to getting results for healthy weight loss, unexplained fatigue etc.
  6. Our hormones have a complicated relationship with our Central Nervous System as well as our Cardiovascular Systems.

Functional testing in osteopathy, nutrition

Conventional medical testing will usually only produce a result when you have developed an actual disease. Often you may feel ill long before there is a “measurable pathology” – you know something is wrong but your tests keep coming back clear. Sound familiar? 




Safe, clinical, practical and effective.
