Hello, I am Dr Nina Fuller-Shavel and I welcome you to Synthesis Nutrition. I am a qualified Nutritional Therapist working within the Functional Medicine model and I additionally have an MA Hons in Natural Sciences and a Bachelor's Degree in Medicine and Surgery from Cambridge University. I am a member of both the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM). I am also fully registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
I am passionate about the role of nutrition and functional medicine in promoting our health and wellbeing and I would like to use my methods to help you achieve your health goals. In my clinic I choose to practice an evidence-informed yet client-focused approach. It is my job to identify and thoroughly assess the genetic, biochemical and lifestyle factors that may contribute to your symptoms and health issues, use functional medicine testing as appropriate and then to synthesise all the information I have gathered to co-create an individualised and comprehensive health plan to address your unique needs.
My clinic also utilises an evidence-based integrative medicine approach based on individual client's health issues. Integrative medicine places the relationship between the practitioner and client at its centre, focuses on the whole person and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic and lifestyle approaches and disciplines (with appropriate referrals) to achieve optimal health.
