Unfortunately I can't seem to track down anyone in the UK that is paleo/WAPF friendly that is also working as a health practitioner.
I'm in desperate need of someone to look 'under the hood' with significant gut dysbiosis, hormonal imbalance and nutrient deficiencies. My best efforts and intentions have got me nowhere, and have probably worsened the situation slightly. After being shunned and ignored by orthadox medicine, I'm left trying to self navigate many issues, which I've no idea how to approach and in what order. I end up chopping and changing supplements, programs etc too often without really knowing what's going on.
Anyone know of anyone in the UK equipped to deal with some serious adrenal problems and/or other hormone imbalances?
We do have some of the equivalent labs here, such as metametrix and genova, so might also consider working with someone from the US if I can get the same lab work and supplements.
Chris Kresser is one I'm considering, although he hasn't (yet) written extensively about adrenal fatigue, but he does seem like a good guy that is clearly paleo friendly and utilises relevant functional tests, without ventering into the realms of homeopathy, crystals and whale music.
I'd welcome any recommendations.

I know nothing about him, but I do read his blog and receive his email updates and he is low carb.
If you send me an email that is in my profile, I can send you yesterdays newsletter from him.
I saw Liam Chapman in Hendon, London when my health crashed badly in 2008. Only saw him once before I had to move back to Sydney (two months of being bedridden wasn't much fun in London!) but he ordered things such as AM ACTH and cortisol (to check adrenal function) and RBC (red blood cell) testing for potassium, mag and others. He seemed quite knowledgeable, approachable and didn't charge a fortune.
Unfortunately, the UK isn't the best for this sort of medicine which is a shame. I am on a thyroid forum and the UK members have all sorts of trouble trying to get the right treatment and thorough investigation of underlying nutritional issues.
Additionally, these organisations may help you find someone (though no listings as such on the sites)
