What is Clinical PNI?

The PNI approach thinks of your symptoms as the snapshot or photo – the end process of a disease. The consultation is designed to unravel your ‘film’, to get to the cause of the problem. [READ MORE]

Clinical PNI practitioners look at the biological pathways in the body, which have led to long-term chronic disease or symptoms. Clinical PNI uses the latest scientific knowledge from the fields of psychology, neurology, immunology, endocrinology, evolutionary biology, epigenetics, nutrition and exercise science. [CLOSE]

Why we need Clinical PNI

We evolved in an environment very different from the one we live in today, but our genes remain virtually unchanged. Knowledge of PNI pathways in the body, evolutionary biology and nutrition, create the opportunity to improve and promote aspects of health in today’s environment. [READ MORE]

Western diet, lack of exercise, stress, medications etc can all play a role in poor health, and lead to a state of low-grade inflammation in the body. Our body is designed to resolve short-term inflammation, but long-term inflammation is associated with many of today’s diseases – type 2 diabetes, obesity, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, bowel conditions (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, IBS), joint problems, chronic fatigue, autoimmune conditions.

Our environment and lifestyle also have a big impact on our genes. Sub-optimal conditions have the ability to ‘switch’ our genes on or off – this is epigenetics and it can determine whether we are susceptible to a certain disease or not. Making changes to our diet and lifestyle can be crucial to changing disease outcome. [CLOSE]

How does the Clinical PNI treatment work?

The treatment interventions in PNI include: nutrition, herbal medicine, psychosocial intervention (for stress, anxiety, low mood), exercise, inflammation resolution and deep learning. [READ MORE]

Deep learning promotes a clear understanding of your disease or symptom. Through diagrams and teaching, links will be made between your past medical history, life incidents, current lifestyle and your symptoms. This process enables you to understand why particular recommendations have been made for you and where in your ‘film’ they will have an affect.
During the consultation you will be asked a wide-range of questions to get an overall picture of your health. Lucy will then spend time going through the deep learning process with you, drawing diagrams and explaining the pathways to your symptoms. She will make recommendations for a treatment protocol based on your ‘film’. [CLOSE]
