Hello, I'm Alex Georgiou and I’m a registered nutritionist with a passion for helping people to overcome challenging health conditions and return to optimum wellness.
One of the things I'm often asked is, "What made you want to be a nutritionist?"
My keen interest in health and nutrition began after facing my own personal health issues when I was 28 years old. I had IBS symptoms of bloating, cramping and chronic diarrhoea as well as 'adrenal fatigue', anxiety and insomnia. Unfortunately, conventional medicine couldn’t resolve my health problems, which led me to seek the expertise of a nutritional therapist. She was able to recognise my symptoms were caused by an imbalance in my gut bacteria and my digestive problems were exacerbated by wheat and other gluten grains. I also had a genetic problem that affected something called methylation, which was the root cause of my health issues.
After reaping the benefits of nutritional therapy first hand, I decided to make this my vocation, and I studied for three years to gain my professional diploma as a registered nutritional therapist. I love being in a profession that I can pour my heart and soul into, that aligns with my values and contributes to the world in a positive way.
I'm a full member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), as well as the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP) and I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), the only register for Nutritional Therapy recognised by the government's Department of Health.
In 2019 I became a certified mould sickness practitioner having completed an advanced course by Dr Jill Crista. Mould is now recognised a major contributing factor to chronic health conditions ranging from IBS and SIBO to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Identifying and addressing mould as a root cause can be critical in overcoming numerous health issues. I have helped many people with 'mystery illnesses' by applying the skills and techniques I learnt from Dr Jill Crista.
I have gained accreditation as a SIBO certified practitioner by internationally renowned Dr. Alison Sibecker. She is a pioneer in treating patients with SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) which is the leading cause of IBS. The knowledge I have gained from this course has enabled me to offer the most up-to-date and most effective treatment for many IBS sufferers.
