Carol Plumridge, Osteopath
Carol Plumridge, DO
Carol graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (B.S.O.) in 1980. After a spell in N Wales Carol came back to work in London and taught undergraduates at the B.S.O.
Carol worked as a director at the Greenwich Natural Centre and taught post graduate Cranial work. In 2004 after a phonecall to an ex student about a course he was running, Carol ended up taking over the Park Lane practice(there were quite a few conversations between these two events!).
Carol now treats patients, runs the practice, teaches on post graduate cranial courses and tries to improve at yoga!
Her interests are improving patients general health through Osteopathic treatment and noticing the impact of emotions on people's health and wellbeing.
The food we eat can have a significant effect on every aspect of our lives. Making adjustments to your nutrition and lifestyle can make a big difference to the way you feel and your health.
If you suffer with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, evidence is showing the relatively new FODMAP diet can significantly improve symptoms in 75% of people. Studies show that reducing weight by 5-10% can cut risks of heart disease, diabetes and stroke and reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.
So whether you want to improve your energy, take control of your weight, improve your performance in sport or have a specific health concern, a consultation with a registered dietitian could benefit you.
Each consultation is tailed to your specific needs, to suite your lifestyle and to help you make achievable changes.
Dietary analysis is also available where your diet is nutritionally analysed, this is useful to check for vitamin or mineral deficiency, carbohydrates and protein intake for sport or for assessing overall energy intake or weight gain or loss.
