Health

It's not only in your mind.

NEURODIVERGENCE IS EXPERIENCED IN THE BRAIN AND THE BODY.

Life as a neurodivergent woman can present distinct challenges that impact both mental and physical health. Traditional approaches rarely meet the nuanced needs of those of us with ADHD or autism. My approach not only acknowledges these differences but also respects and harnesses them.
 

By combining functional medicine with personalised nutrition, my objective is to significantly enhance your overall wellness. This approach is rooted in a deep understanding of your unique strengths and provides targeted support for your specific health challenges.

Investigative Health is dedicated to investigating, identifying and addressing the drivers of YOUR unique health - encompassing both challenges and opportunities for wellness.

Discover how Investigative Health can transform the well-being of autistic women and ADHD'ers—promoting physical and mental health and resilience, and unlocking the extraordinary potential of neurodivergent women.

HORMONAL IMBALANCES

It's NOT all in your mind.

Many neurodivergent women experience these same issues.

This is not a coincidence. It's all connected - the brain AND the body.

And it needs a comprehensive, investigative approach.

IN PERI-MENOPAUSE, WOMEN WITH ADHD OFTEN EXPERIENCE INTENSIFIED SYMPTOMS, AS REVEALED BY A SURVEY FROM ADDITUDE.

Hormonal fluctuations tend to worsen ADHD symptoms such as inattention,

poor memory, overwhelm, emotional dysregulation and sleep disturbances

- which tend to overlap with symptoms of peri-menopause.
 
This period often marks the first diagnosis for many women, underscoring a key moment for tailored, comprehensive support. It's important to note that research into the hormonal impacts on women with ADHD is still in its early stages, and studies focusing on autistic women are even more scarce.
 
My research on nutritional interventions, such as L-theanine for enhancing attention in peri-menopausal women with ADHD, has deepened my understanding of these complex interactions. This allows me to offer informed, comprehensive and effective support.

Neurodivergent women deserve an ally who not only investigates and addresses
hormonal health, but also considers the gut-brain connection and more ...
To recognise all the parts of you and connect the dots.

How Investigative Health can support your Neurodivergence

We'll use Functional Medicine and Personalised Nutrition to

investigate, identify and address what you need.

 

Functional Medicine can help us get to the bottom of what's going on, while

Personalised Nutrition makes sure our strategies are adapted to YOU.

We'll support your hormonal, digestive, adrenal and brain health - and all the rest of you.

I can help to unravel extensive information obtained through detailed analysis of your 

symptoms, health history, family history, diet and lifestyle.   

Functional lab testing 

can give further insight into issues commonly experienced by autistic women & ADHD'ers. 

Some examples include:

Neurotransmitter production & balance, affecting focus, emotional regulation, sleep, appetite, etc.

Stool testing to identify digestive triggers & nutrient absorption, to support the gut-brain axis

Adrenal hormones affecting the stress response and estrogen production

Sex hormones including estrogen, progesterone and testosterone

Nutrient status affecting healthy function of the brain & body
