Tom Sokolowski

Practitioner

Tom Sokolowski’s passion for science was rekindled when he became ill with parasites and chronic fatigue syndrome after travelling in South East Asia. Reading physics at Cambridge University provided him with the scientific investigative skills that he now applies to his functional medicine and nutritional therapy practice. These skills also guided his recovery as he completed a diploma in nutritional therapy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, followed by extensive further training in functional medicine, nutritional therapy and nutrigenomics.

Tom is passionate about keeping a wide area of interest in health and disease since he sees all the systems of the body as intricately connected and appreciates that any one symptom may have many different causes that need to be understood and investigated. He also regularly engages in both self-directed and commissioned research work which feeds into his clinical practice. Tom specialises in gut complaints, cognitive function, psychological health and neurodegenerative conditions, cardiometabolic health, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, toxicity and fertility.

Tom uses his experience as a Tai Chi practitioner, Thai Yoga Masseur and training in Psychosynthesis and Motivational Interviewing to support his understanding of our inherent potential to change behaviour and habits in service of the greater health, joy and abundant energy that he is convinced is possible for most individuals.
