Your Health Matters
KATIE WHEATON BA (Hons) mBANT CNHC is a registered Nutritional Therapist and plant based chef based in London and Suffolk. She trained at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine where clinical practice underpins the training alongside Nutritional Science. Naturopathic medicine is a health care system that encourages the body's own self-healing process through the use of natural therapies and draws on both traditional healing methods and modern biomedical research. Three years of study has allowed her to hone her knowledge of naturopathic nutrition and healing foods. She has subsequently trained in Nutrigenomics which looks at the effects of nutrients on the regulation of gene expression and is a useful tool in preventative personalized health care. She is a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy (B.A.N.T), and the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), all professional bodies for nutritional practitioners.
Her approach is client-focused, personalised, educational, and collaborative. KATIE's MINDFUL KITCHEN was founded on the belief that food is medicine and is not just about what we eat but how we eat, and how we grow our food. Combining nutritional science and plant based healing, Katie's passion is helping people nourish the body and mind for optimal health. Her consultations start from the premise that everyone is biochemically different, and that we all have different dietary needs based on our lifestyle, genetics, and personal goals. Her protocols are put together using the principles of Nutritional Therapy and Functional Medicine, addressing root causes rather than symptom management. Alongside her private practice, Katie works as a plant-based chef for private clients and caters for events/yoga retreats. Katie also works for OptiBac Probiotics educating on gut health and the benefits of using probiotic supplements to assist gut healing and a balanced microbiome.
" My journey to health has been a pilgrimage to healing as I tried to heal my symptoms naturally and avoid merely masking the symptoms, which would often return again and again. As a child I suffered terribly with chronic ear infections, asthma, eczema. In my teens I suffered from acne, endometriosis, migraines, anxiety, low mood, inability to deal with stress, chronic allergies, sinusitis, bloating, poor immunity, and nutrient deficiencies.
The real turning point for me was when I travelled to Nepal for a friend's wedding and had the chance to explore Ayurveda, an integrative approach to Medicine. Ayurveda was my first introduction to the concept of biochemical individuality and personalised medicine and after my first meeting with an Ayurvedic doctor I knew it would influence the next course of my life. When you work with the body naturally, and in the right environment, it intuitively knows how to heal itself. I extended my trip and enrolled on a panache karma programme which is a cleansing and rejuvenation programme for body, mind, and consciousness. My health improved within 7 days and from that day forward I decided to study naturopathic nutrition. I now have optimal energy levels, reduced anxiety, pain free periods, clear skin, and a lifestyle that supports health."
Katie's nutrition plans are self-sustaining programmes that will guide your health back to a rooted more balanced state of health. I am proud to be part of the future of personalised medicine that accounts for nutrition, biochemical individuality, genetics, lifestyle, and psychoneuroimmunology. "
