Zoë Hill, DipNT CNM, Nutritional Therapist
I have always had a real passion for cooking, healthy eating and nutrition. It wasn’t though until my late teens when my own health was compromised that I learnt how changing your diet and lifestyle can have a dramatic effect on your health. At the age of 18 I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This was rather distressing for a young woman given the symptoms associated with PCOS (obesity, acne, male pattern balding, excessive facial and body hair, irregular or no periods and difficulty conceiving) plus the fact that there is no known ‘cure’ for PCOS. This encouraged me to do my own research and to discover that the symptoms of PCOS can be managed through changes to one’s diet and lifestyle. Nearly two decades on I am a healthy mum completely free of all symptoms associated with PCOS thanks to following a healthy diet, taking regular exercise and keeping an eye on my stress levels. What baffled me though was as a naïve teenager when I went to see my Doctor they did not mention anything about my diet or lifestyle. Instead, he offered to put me on the Pill, which I now know would have simply masked the symptoms.
Seeing the impact nutritional therapy had on my health as a whole, my digestion drastically improved and the eczema I had been plagued with most of my life cleared up, I decided I wanted to help others who are looking for a complementary route to improving their health. This led me to train as a Nutritional Therapist at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Central London.
