The doctors discuss:
Dr Leah Austin graduated from Newcastle University in Tyne, UK in 2007 and completed her General Practitioner training in 2014. She completed posts in general medicine, orthopaedics, emergency medicine, microbiology, palliative care, genitourinary medicine, obstetrics & gynecology. Since working as a General Practitioner she has gained experience working in the North East, Yorkshire, London, UK and Beijing, China. Working as General Practitioner within the NHS, she became frustrated with time constraints of 10 minute consultations; the ability to manage patients with longstanding (chronic) health problems and really being able to give patients the individualized assessment and care they deserved. Being of mixed ethnic background with Chinese and English, she became fascinated with eastern medicine and the true impact of nutrition, genetics, herbs, environment and lifestyle. With this and her own health/family concerns; led her to study nutrition and qualify as a Nutritional Therapist in September 2017 at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. She now practices in London, UK as an integrative practitioner specializing in exploring the root cause of health problems, chronic, nutrigenomic, hormone and digestive health.
