Glen is co-founder and director of the pioneering health information blog HealthUncut.com and is an expert blogger for the Huffington Post.
In addition to a strong academic approach to his work, Glen has received extensive training in behaviour change whist working in diabetes prevention research, an invaluable skill for maximising the effectiveness of his sophisticated nutritional programmes. He has also had the great fortune of collaborating with world-renowned Functional Medicine expert Doctor Georges Mouton, with whom Glen has worked closely for several years.
This extensive training, and diverse experience, puts Glen in a unique position to offer highly effective expert nutritional advice. Glen focuses on the importance of taking an individualised approach to promote optimal health, focusing on the underlying causes of any health problems, rather than just the symptoms. As a result, Glen provides his clients with comprehensive, personalised and highly sophisticated nutritional programmes, reflecting the latest scientific evidence and current thinking.
Glen’s main areas of interest include nutritional approaches for weight management, fatigue, cardiovascular health, pre-diabetes and insulin resistance, low mood and depression, pre-conceptual care and pregnancy, bone health, joint health, inflammatory conditions, along with approaches that support healthy ageing and optimal health.
Glen has been in practice since 2001 and is a registered member of BANT and the NTC.
