About Jackie Reader
Having spent many years suffering from thrush, athlete's foot, chronic constipation, digestive problems and fatigue, I finally gave up on conventional medicine when all my blood tests came back normal and my doctor did not seem to be able to offer me anything to help except laxatives and antidepressants.
The first thing I did to take my health into my own hands was to have colonic hydrotherapy. This was a complete revelation to me, especially when my therapist told me my gut was ‘very yeasty’ and had I ever been tested for candida – light bulb moment! sent me off to a nutritional therapist and I finally started to get my life back.
This was a turning point in my life and I then decided to train as a Clinical Nutritionist at one of the UK’s leading London colleges, the British College of Nutrition & Health, where I earned a Dip BCNH qualification after three and a half years of study. I am now a member of the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (FNTP) and Register of Colonic Therapists and Trainers (RICTAT).
I quickly realised that I needed to expand my knowledge to deal with emotional as well as physical issues and that, as good as nutritional therapy is, this was only part of the story. Since then I have trained in Kinesiology, EFT, NAET, Bowen Technique, Colonic Hydrotherapy and Live Blood Microscopy in order to offer my clients a completely holistic experience.
I believe that we need to look at the whole picture in order to resolve our health issues and return to full health and this is the approach I take with my clients.
I am passionate about what I do and strongly believe that good heath is the right of everyone. I do not diagnose and always recommend that my clients see their general practitioner if appropriate.
