About Rochelle Logan-Rodgers
Registered nutritional therapy consultant
As a child, I loved science profoundly and was fascinated by its interactions with nature and people. I wanted to be a doctor, a forensic scientist, a nurse and then a doctor again. Simultaneously, from a young age, I witnessed the infirmities and passing of friends and family due to health-related issues. These experiences gripped me and have been pivotal in my conviction to assist and support people in their well-being.
I subsequently read Molecular Medicine BSc (Hons) from 2007-2010 at the University of Sussex to get to grips with the molecular errors of disease and its interventions.
But as I struggled with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, various skin issues, allergies and other illnesses and was not completely ‘cured’ by pharmaceutical drugs, I began to consider how my diet and environment were affecting my health status. My mother and I frequently utilised complementary medicine, especially when realising that, for us, conventional medicine by itself could only go so far. From a young age, I have reaped the benefits of osteopathy, applied kinesiology and other functional medicine interventions integrated with conventional medicine. I knew I needed to study in depth a more holistic approach of helping others and myself achieve optimal health. Thus, in 2015 I obtained my Postgraduate Diploma in Nutritional Therapy at the Northern College of Acupuncture, in conjunction with Middlesex University.
I have worked over a decade in hospitals and health care settings such as care homes, paediatric wards and specialised eye clinics. Currently, I work on Harley Street with an orthomolecular doctor (a physician who seeks to achieve an optimal biochemical balance by using nutrients); Dr Damien Downing.
Today I am a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist (NT) who is registered with two professional bodies; the British Association for Applied Nutrition & Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
In my 2006 application to university, I wrote: “I am keen to meet challenges, utilise my stamina and quickly absorb new concepts. I will thrive on the gift of using scientific knowledge to ensure that people will have the opportunity to a healthy state of wellbeing.”
These words ring ever true to this day.
