Functional Medicine – Nutrition Therapy to achieve wellness

Jo Gamble Functional Medicine Practitioner


As a Functional Medicine Nutritional Therapist consultant I believe in order to achieve wellness, you must first establish the cause of the imbalance. Treating the symptoms do not alleviate the problem, it is merely like putting a plaster on a dirty wound, whilst you can’t see the dirt it is still there. By establishing the interwoven web of mind, body and spirit, it is possible to piece-by-piece rebuild the imbalances causing disease and dysfunction.

As a therapist my approach to nutritional therapy and wellness encompasses the functional medicine approach.

Functional medicine is a unique approach to person centered care, rather than disease focused. The body acts as a dynamic integrated whole with an ever-changing relationship between internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical and social environment).

In Functional Medicine, interventions are naturally supportive of the body’s own systems, like nutritional therapy support or correcting harmful lifestyle factors, rather than, the management of the condition with chemical or surgical interventions to compensate for what the body is believed to not be able to do itself.

“I have known and worked with Jo Gamble for a couple of years and her knowledge and work within the nutritional field is outstanding. She has helped so many of my staff and members with their diets and illnesses. She has also worked with our professional boxers offering them nutritional support. The members, staff and I all look forward to her talks which she holds regularly at the gym for anyone wanting to attend. A very supportive, informed and professional nutritionist.”

In February 2011 our daughter Bethany was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Days and nights were long and troubled. Bethany was locked in her own world unable to communicate and suffering from poor health. In Spring 2011 we were introduced to nutritionist Jo Gamble. Not only does Jo have a wealth of experience in her field, with impressive credentials to confirm her expertise, she is also empathic and encouraging. In addition to effectively treating Bethany, she is also a tremendous support. Following the ongoing treatment plan Jo has specifically prescribed, Bethany has made phenomenal progress and continues to do so, her general health is also going from strength to strength. Thank you Jo!

As a highly graded martial artist (6th Dan) I have been interested in nutrition for many years. I actually thought I had an in-depth knowledge of this area until I met Jo Gamble.
Her knowledge about nutrition is absolutely incredible.
It’s nice to meet someone who has obviously done vast amounts of academic research into nutrition and it benefits but who has also had real-life experience. Not all the information can be found in books, some must be found through the hard personal toils of life and Jo has experienced more than her fair share of life’s challenges, which makes her a very congruent person.
I personally have found Jo very easy to talk to, she is very attentive to her client’s needs, very professional and knows her subject matter inside out and for these reasons I have no hesitation in highly recommending her to anyone.

“I had my first consultation with Jo Gamble in November 2011 and was immediately impressed with Jo’s professionalism knowledge and commitment. I believe that the nutritional and lifestyle changes that Jo has recommended have been a huge positive step in dealing with my medical condition.”

I was recommended to consult Jo initially with a thyroid problem and have seen positive results with this through blood tests. The changes that Jo has suggested not only in food choices but also in lifestyle have improved my general health and energy levels. I read a lot of books about nutrition and health but I realize I didn’t know much at all after consulting Jo as not only does she have a wealth of knowledge but she is so inspirational. I have no hesitation in recommending Jo

“Jo’s knowledge & commitment to her clients is amazing. Working with her firstly gave me hope as somebody was finally listening & piecing the puzzle together, each symptom however trivial meant something, secondly it freed me from the autoimmune disease roller coaster of ill health & immunosuppressant drug therapy and its side effects, thirdly I gained good health after many years of struggling & a longed-for baby, she is absolutely incredible!”


“Deteriorating health and additional medication were not where I wanted to be at the beginning of 2015!
Being guided to Jo Gamble was the start of a great improvement in my wellbeing.

Through her knowledge and experience, she helped me change my eating habits from fairly good to great and with the addition of supplements I have now made an investment in my future health.

Now I want to know why more people don’t look at this holistic approach, there is nothing to lose and so much to be gained!

2016 looks so much brighter for me.”

Sandra from Shrewsbury

“I was referred to Jo after being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She has an impressive breadth of knowledge about cancer and nutrition, and she will research anything that she doesn’t know (for example, checking interactions with new drugs). Jo loves understanding the science of cancer and nutrition too – which is very reassuring. After every consultation, Jo sends me a detailed plan summarising what we have discussed with clear action points that I can follow up. I feel healthier now than I have done for years!

Following Jo’s careful advice I eat like a king and feel better than I have done for years!

Jo is a goldmine of nutrition knowledge and suggestions. She loves knowing how the body works (and is excellent at explaining it in layman’s terms) and she keeps abreast of the academic work around nutrition – I feel confident that she is up to date with the very latest understanding.”


Both my husband and myself suffered from medical conditions and could find no solution from conventional medicine. Finding Jo was the turning point in our recovery. Her pragmatic yet caring approach and her vast knowledge has given us our health back and caused positive ripple effects through our family as we pass on her teachings to them. We have to travel two hours to see her but it is a small price to pay for our overall health. Can’t thank her enough!


I have been working with Jo for just over 12 months now to support me with nutrition & functional healing & am delighted with my progress to date. Jo listens & understands the deeper issues, offering the most appropriate support & solution. Her help in keeping me remained focused & on track is truly appreciated
