About Me.

Melody Mackeown

I am a Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach with over 15 years of clinical practice and with a specialist knowledge of gut health.

I see clients with gastro-intestinal issues, whether they have a medical diagnosis or functional conditions like IBS.

Where necessary, I work in collaboration with medical professions, such as your GP and take into account any medical reports and diagnostic tests clients have undertaken. The service that I offer does not replaces that provided by your GP or Consultant as I am not a doctor.

In fact, I encourage my clients to seek medical advice where appropriate and to compile medical reports undertaken as well as results of endoscopies, colonoscopies and blood analysis so that I can gather all the necessary information to create individualised nutritional programme.

  • What is Nutritional Therapy

As a Nutritional Therapist, I apply the latest hypotheses and evidence-based research in nutrition and health sciences to you and your symptoms and come up with a diet, lifestyle and (sometimes) supplement plan to support your needs.

I will also bring in some coaching to help you put the recommendations into practice in a meaningful way or to break through whatever barriers that have held you back in past.

“Despite only working with Melody for 4 months I already feel much more energised, stronger and like myself”

I have a track record of working with individuals with a number of different digestive conditions, helping them to use nutrition to improve their quality of life.

How do I work as a Functional Medicine Practitioner?

I address the underlying causes of your health problems by applying Functional Medicine.

Functional medicine offers a different way of viewing the gut and approaching clinical management by moving away from symptom-based diagnosis to understanding underlying dysfunction and dis-ease by utilising personalised nutrition and lifestyle medicine. If we don’t fix the WHY all we do is address/manage the symptoms.

To identify the WHY, I normally recommend specialised functional testing to take the guess work out of your digestive issues. They give us a road map to follow a very precise nutritional protocol unique to your needs. This is called personalised nutrition.

Simply put, without testing and finding out the WHY fixing your digestive problems is less certain.

I also use coaching alongside the functional medicine approach which allows me to support you as whole person, not just disconnected symptoms. It also helps me to address the root causes of any health problems. I focus on a “can do” attitude, finding ways to overcome barriers, increase motivation and to get you excited about all the wonderful food choices available as well as working on eliminating cravings and hunger. As a result, most of my clients who follow a personalized diet and lifestyle programmes see significant positive improvements to their health and wellbeing within just 3-6 months, some within just 1-2 week.
