Xuxa's philosophy is to use an integrative and holistic approach to healthcare, looking at the body and its systems as a whole and how they constantly communicate and interact, ultimately influencing our overall health. Using this approach, Xuxa aims to determine and address the root cause of illness rather than just settle for symptom management.
Recognising that everyone's nutritional needs are unique and there is no 'one-size-fits-all' protocol, Xuxa is passionate about using evidence-based and science-backed research to support her clients with any health concern or condition. She aims to empower her clients with their food choices, encourage sustainable long-term change and achieve optimal health.
Xuxa has a particular interest in the complex and intimate relationship between the brain and the gut and how food plays an incredible role in the development, management and potential prevention of both mental health issues as well as adverse physical symptoms and chronic disease.
Xuxa believes that eating well shouldn't be time consuming, intimidating or elitist and should always be accessible and relevant and she frequently attends webinars, talks and workshops to further her knowledge and keep her finger on the pulse of nutritional science, implementing emerging evidence in her clinic.
Xuxa is a registered Nutritional Therapist with The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners (ANP).
" Xuxa couldn’t have been more thorough and attentive as a practitioner. I felt truly listened to, and the plan she devised for me really targeted the issues I came to her needing help with. I even felt improvements in areas I hadn’t expected to see improvements in! I already feel so much better as well as really supported "
