Louise has a growing area of specialism in inflammatory conditions, especially those associated
with pathogenic/environmental triggers such as borrelia spirochetes (Lyme Disease) and coinfections
or mould/mycotoxin exposure. It was a growing clinical awareness of the effect of
inflammation on the brain due to these factors and other more common triggers seen frequently in
nutritional practice, that led Louise to undergo training in cognitive decline therapeutics by
Professor Dale Bredesen. In 2018 Louise became the first practitioner in the UK to become
certified in the Shoemaker Protocol.
