A little bit about Lorna Driver-Davies

A decade as a registered naturopathic nutritional therapist, with expertise in teen and women's hormone and gynaecological nutrition, working with diagnosed conditions and irregularities (including psychological changes related to menstrual and hormone health), menstrual cycle optimisation, the promotion of healthy female hormones, healthy fertility, pregnancy and post-natal health, hormones changes in your 40's +, thyroid health, minimising the affects upon organs and systems that connect to the stress response, sleep and optimising energy. Lorna recognises the important role of the immune system, gut health and the microbiome, detoxification and genetics in women's health. Lorna has special skills in working with complex conditions that require medical, medication and surgical intervention and is able to 'complement' medical support with safe appropriate nutrition and lifestyle programmes. She often refers to and works alongside specialist women's health doctors and nurses.. She also integrates functional medicine practice and her knowledge of botanicals as a herbal medicine dispenser.. As the daughter of revered Medical Herbalist and Naturopath, Dr Jill Rosemary Davies, her childhood and teens gave her the foundation of understanding that healthy food and medicinal plants can have an amazingly optimizing effect on our mind and body. Lorna was ahead of the game, being raised from 1982 on natural, organic and delicious home-made meals – full of antioxidant and microbiome supporting herbs, spices, plants and wholefoods. At home there was also a focus on the provenance of foods such as meat, fish and dairy (local, free range, grass fed and so forth) and a preference for traditional ways of preparing foods such as fermentation, 'live' cultures (such as home-made un-pasteurized yogurt) and slow cooking. During that time was exposed to new concepts about health that were considered very 'uncool' or radical in the 1980's, that today we accept positively as scientifically validated. From her teens she keenly absorbed clinical information from her mother on supporting female clients with herbs and naturopathy. All this has given Lorna the passion and drive to help others today and she still often lectures alongside her mother to nutrition and herbal students, as well as professionals, on plant chemistry and naturopathic practice.. Lorna's philosophy is that while food and meals can be healing, it should also be a joyful and non-stressful experience to eat and explore new tastes and smells. And that eating well, does not need to be complicated or exhaustive for those who lack time or skills.. Other professional experience or positions:. · Regularly lectures to members of the public, medical and nutritional professionals and mentors nutrition students. She is quotes on female health and nutrition for the media and press.. · Lectures on the nutrition module for the Royal Surrey County Hospital specialist gynaecological nurses' course entitled 'Caring for Endo Patients'.. · Nutrition speaker for The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy annual meeting.. · Published work: Case chapter on female hormone and thyroid support in 'Case Studies in Personalized Nutrition (Personalized Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine for Healthcare Practitioners)': https://www.amazon.co.uk/Personalized-Nutrition-Lifestyle-Healthcare-Practitioners-ebook/dp/B07X1M78JX/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=angela+walker+singing+dragon&qid=1571925705&sr=8-1. · Clinical & Education Manager at Wild Nutrition, where she advises members of the public, nutrition practitioners and medical professionals on women's, men's and family health and supplementation.. · Regularly attends CPD (continuing professional development) lectures and seminars in nutrition, functional medicine and botanicals in order to keep up to date with research, practical applications and, most importantly, safe practice.
