WORK WITH ANNA

WHY CHOOSE ME?

About

Anna HaynesNT is a fully insured and registered CMA member with 15 years of clinical experience in Naturopathic Nutrition and Optimal Nutrition.  She has 11 years of experience trained in Systematic Kinesiology and 9 years of clinical in Genomic Wellness screening (Epigenetics & Nutrigenomics) and Functional Testing.  

Anna offers interventions and strategies that are based upon information gathered from lengthy and detailed questionnaires and Functional Medicine investigation alongside DNA genetic profiles (Genetic Nutrition).

Anna is up-beat, and seeks to engage, inspire and motivate clients with clear direction and proven strategies.  Engendering self-responsibility as she understands recovery is a holistic process.

Anna’s chosen specialism is working with those who have neurological and toxicity-related conditions; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Benign Fasciculation Syndrome (BFS), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), targeting underlying nutritional and biochemical imbalances, viral and toxicity triggers that could be contributing to your illness.

Why Choose Me?

I walk my talk, I always have done! I quit sugar, dairy, alcohol, wheat, processed food 26 years ago, abstaining from alcohol for 20 years (but enjoy a glass of red wine and dark chocolate these days!).  I still don’t eat refined sugar and remain committed to being gluten-free. My health is a testament to that!

I am friendly, gentle but firm, motivating support

I take the time to listen to each unique story, giving you 100% of my attention. Because everything about the way you communicate your health history, the signs and symptoms enable me to journey with you and identify where there are imbalances in the form of nutritional deficiencies, weaknesses within organs, etc.

I also know what is realistically possible for busy people who juggle work and family commitments. I know how real life gets in the way of your best intentions! So I will not ‘judge’ or ‘lecture’ you – Nobody eats the perfect diet all of the time! YOU decide how strict you want to be with yourself. You set your own pace to make realistic and achievable changes.  I am your guide, and hold your hand, to help keep you motivated, to answer seemingly perplexing questions, and inspire a taste for nutritious food on route to good health.

Bite-sized goals

Nutritional Therapy is all about gradual permanent changes and long-term rewards. Choose just one or more recommendations, so long as you know they are achievable.  The key is to experience regular small improvements, that add up to big positive and permanent changes in your eating plan and lifestyle. These little changes become an automatic part of your daily routine, so they are no longer an effort.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Why do we need Functional Medicine?

Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis.
The system of medicine practiced by most physicians is oriented toward acute care, the diagnosis and treatment of trauma or illness that is of short duration and in need of urgent care, such as appendicitis or a broken leg. Physicians apply specific, prescribed treatments such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat the immediate problem or symptom.
Unfortunately, the acute-care approach to medicine lacks the proper methodology and tools for preventing and treating complex, chronic disease. In most cases it does not take into account the unique genetic makeup of each individual or factors such as environmental exposures to toxins and the aspects of today’s lifestyle that have a direct influence on the rise in chronic disease in modern Western society.
There’s a huge gap between research and the way doctors practice. The gap between emerging research in basic sciences and integration into medical practice is enormous—as long as 50 years—particularly in the area of complex, chronic illness.
Most physicians are not adequately trained to assess the underlying causes of complex, chronic disease and to apply strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to both treat and prevent these illnesses in their patients.

How is Functional Medicine Different?

Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease. Hallmarks of a functional medicine approach include:

Patient-centered care. The focus of functional medicine is on patient-centered care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease. By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, the practitioner brings the patient into the discovery process and tailors treatments that address the individual’s unique needs.
An integrative, science-based healthcare approach. Functional medicine practitioners look “upstream” to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body, and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning.
Integrating best medical practices. Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what is sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.

Business Mentoring

I offer mentoring to a very limited number of NTs (i.e. max of 3 at any one time). This is limited by the time I can spend with them, essentially, which is almost exclusively via zoom calls. I commit to responding to clients who are on my Functional Health Foundational Packages & my mentees first and foremost above all other clients, where it is possible. This is a key feature of my commitment to those who are invested in their health, and professional practices as mentees, for me to give you a rapid response to support your evolving clinical practice.

Mentoring Information – Anna HaynesNT, 2024 

I offer mentoring to a very limited number of NTs (i.e. max of 3 at any one time). This is limited by the time I can spend with them, essentially, which is almost exclusively via zoom calls.

Rapid Response

I commit to responding to clients who are on my Functional Health Foundational Packages & my mentees first above all other clients, where it is possible. This is a key feature of my commitment to those who are invested in their health, and professional practices as mentees – for me to give you a rapid response to support your evolving clinical practice.

I speak to each mentee individually – everything is specifically geared to you and your needs and your clients’ cases.

What typically happens is this – I receive case history information from you about a client, and test results if there are any, and then I speak to you about the case and make suggestions as to what to do for that client. Also, I can give advice about practical clinical matters and consultation styles & processes etc. if that is needed. I use all the skills I can muster to identify what will work best for your client: technical know-how, clinical experience, muscle testing and intuitive knowing.

The fee is at the same rate per hour that I see clients at – which is £150/hour in 2024. This fee includes the time taken to read the case history information in advance which can sometimes take tens of minutes if not longer if you send me test results about a case, for example. Once I have reviewed the relevant case history, I could cover one case history in a 15–20-minute zoom call, having read the case information in advance.

In some ways, securing good mentorship, enabling you to get started in an effective way is probably better than waiting, to make too many “mistakes” – which is often the way during the first decade of most NT practices! Furthermore, practicing in the most effective manner (i.e. best outcome for the client) is something all of us want to do as soon as is possible!

I have been in a full-time Nutritional Therapist engaging in continual Naturopathic Nutrition and Optimal Nutrition clinical practice for 16 years. The intention is for me to share with you my 16+ years of experience and knowledge and insights as to how best to help your clients. This should result in expanded levels of knowledge in my mentees. If you are not aware of or are not into ‘energetic matters’ or do not want to get involved in this (which is fine), then I firmly recommend you do NOT seek mentoring with me, because I will inevitably go there and discuss this with you.

Nutritional Therapy consulting is an Art and a Science. I aim to help you to develop your skills in the Art and the Science knowledge required to achieve outstanding rapport with your clients and super successful outcomes in the health of your clients. This is because you have not only been able to identify the key targets for therapeutic intervention but also been able to recommend the appropriate nutritional things (dietary changes & supplements) to achieve this.

As with other mentees, after some time of engaging my services, you may not then feel the need to do so, or so often.  If there is a time gap of many months between our appointments, this is just fine, whatever you need. There is no obligation to engage in a minimum number of hours with me. We can grab 15 minutes or 60 minutes of time – which is usually on a Thursday for zoom calls, or via What’s App (for quick questions) on other days. I will see if I can accommodate you at other days, but Thursdays are exclusively available to those clients who are invested and have signed up for a Comprehensive Health Package, and mentees – who are also invested. If you send me an email with a question then I will aim to respond ASAP and I charge pro rata for time and we can agree to settle outstanding time when it reaches 30 mins total, for example, or add to the next zoom appointment if that is coming up. However, it is best, and I prefer it, if the information shared with you is face to face on zoom rather than in emails – since this takes substantially less time.

Please note that I ask that all fees are paid within 24 hours – just as we would have our clients pay us. All invoices and receipts are raised via Intuit/Quickbooks for our accounting purposes.

Naturally, any private information we share about our own lives is as completely confidential as that of the clients we discuss!
