Hello, I am Afifah Hamilton, a Medical Herbalist, Nutritionist, GAPS Practitioner, Counsellor and Massage Therapist living near Chichester, West Sussex, UK.
I run a busy clinic, where I treat patients using herbal medicine and dietary approaches. I have been a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists since 1993 and as such offer a parallel service to that offered by orthodox GPs, as my training was similar, though with the emphasis on herbal rather than pharmaceutical drugs. My area of specialist research is metabolism, the paleolithic diet and the ketogenic diet, particularly its application to neurological, hormonal, cardiovascular, malignant, auto-immune and diabetic conditions. I have also trained with the neurologist Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of Gut And Psychology Syndrome and am a certified GAPS Practitioner. The GAPS approach is vital in the understanding and treatment of individuals anywhere on the autistic spectrum, whatever their age.
