and other autoimmune skin & hair disorders
At Autoimmune Clinic we believe everyone deserves the chance to live a healthy, productive life - even with an autoimmune disease. To some, a diagnosis can feel like the end – but there is so much you can do to live a healthy life, despite your diagnosis. We know, because our practitioners have improved their own autoimmune conditions using the nutrition and lifestyle medicine approach themselves.
Our practitioners aim to offer caring, accessible and empathetic services to empower their clients to take back control of their health. It is important to us that clients feel listened to and cared for, as we believe it's part of the healing journey. By taking a gentle, whole-person approach, using the latest science, we strive to find the root causes of your illness to guide you back to optimal health.
We're always on the lookout for other autoimmune specialists to join us and grow the clinic.

WHAT IS NUTRITION & LIFESTYLE MEDICINE?
Nutrition and lifestyle medicine is an evidence-based approach to preventing, managing and even reversing chronic diseases by replacing unhealthy behaviours with positive ones – focusing on eating healthily, being physically active, managing stress, getting adequate sleep and having a strong support network.
An overwhelming body of scientific literature supports the concept that what each of us does in our daily lives has a profound impact on both our short and long-term health and quality of life. All therapists at Autoimmune Clinic recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach, by taking a thorough assessment of your health history, your families health history as well as your symptoms, to identify potential nutritional and lifestyle imbalances and understand how these may contribute to your health concerns.
Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.
