KATIE WHEATON BA (Hons) mBANT CNHC is a registered Nutritional Therapist, plant based chef, and recipe developer based in Suffolk. She trained at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine where clinical practice underpins the training alongside Nutritional Science.
Naturopathic nutrition is a health care system that encourages the body's own self-healing process and draws on both functional and lifestyle medicine principles that get to the root cause of the symptom. Root cause medicine takes a deep dive into the emotional, physical, biochemical and spiritual health pillars that support self-regulation and resilience.
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. The journey from seed to plate is equally important as this can affect the nutritional content of the food. Seasonality of foods and wild nutrition is also weaved in to Katie's programmes.
Katie's passion is helping people nourish body and mind for optimal health. Her self sustaining programmes will guide you back to a rooted, more balanced state of health, and her approach is client-focused, personalised, educational, and collaborative.
Alongside her clinical practice, Katie works as a plant based chef and consults in the areas of gut and skin health, food growing, and seasonal eating.
My journey to heath has been a pilgrimage to healing as I made a conscious commitment to support my ailments naturally, and avoid merely masking the symptoms, which would return again and again.
As a child I suffered terribly with ear infections, asthma and eczema. As a teen I suffered with migraines, endometriosis, anxiety, low resilience to deal with stress, allergies, bloating, poor immunity, and undiagnosed food intolerances.
The real turning point for me was when I travelled to Nepal and met an Ayurvedic doctor. Ayurveda was my first introduction to the concept of biochemical individuality and personalised medicine, and uses an integrative approach to medicine. When you work with the body naturally, and give it the right environmental conditions, it intuitively knows how to heal itself.
I can now say that I have optimal energy levels, reduced anxiety, pain free periods, clear skin, and a lifestyle that supports health and vitality."
