Millie Ferguson, BSc(Hons), Nutritional Therapy
Millie is a Registered Nutritional Therapist, member of BANT and CNHC. Millie’s Functional Nutritional Therapy work is devoted to the prevention and management of chronic diseases like diabetes, dementia, heart disease, chronic fatigue and osteoporosis. She has set up The Healthy Ageing Clinic at the Brighton and Hove Therapies clinic.
In her work Millie focuses on the connection between our health and our lifestyle, diet and environment. This connection has long been recognised. Despite that, we continue to ignore the importance of these factors. Now that genetic research has failed to discover a specific gene for diseases like diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s and most cancers and chronic diseases, finding the underlying causes of these condition becomes key to their prevention and for maintenance of health.
Millie applies scientific knowledge and the tools of systems biology to assess how the client’s diet, lifestyle and environment may be affecting their health. This approach means that each client is given a unique personalised program for optimal health. This patient-centred model of health requires that the individual participates fully in managing their health.
