Christopher J. Salmon

Functional Medicine Practitioner
Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach
Neuromuscular Therapist


Chris Salmon is an extremely diligent and conscientious practitioner. Having experienced chronic digestive symptoms, depression, anxiety and other stress-related symptoms for several years, Chris brings a very compassionate and understanding approach to his health coaching and functional medicine clients.

Chris has studied extensively with the CHEK Institute in California and is an expert in Healthexcel’s system of metabolic typing. He is also a skilled “hands-on” therapist and exercise coach. Recently, largely through the conquering of his own health challenges, Chris has focused on nutrition and functional medicine work, gaining qualifications in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and the Functional Medicine University.

Chris is currently co-authoring “The Giardia Solution” with Dave Hompes to educate the public and healthcare practitioners about Giarida lamblia. Giardia is one of the most commonly detected intestinal parasites in the world and has the ability to cause diarrhoea, IBS, depression, chronic fatigue and many other symptoms.

When Chris decided to address his health concerns using Functional Medicine, we found that he had a bacterial infection in his intestine called Achromobacter. We also noted that he had a significant amino-acid (protein) deficiency despite eating a healthy diet, as well as low levels of key vitamins B6 and folic acid, all of which were affecting his brain chemistry and contributing to his imbalanced moods.

After a 90-day program to address these issues, 90% of Chris’s symptoms had simply disappeared!

Through his attention to detail and professional support, Chris’s no-stone-unturned approach has led to amazing results with many clients in symptoms ranging from IBS and pain relief and corrective exercise to chronic fatigue and other complex auto immune conditions.

Chris truly cares about his work and would welcome the opportunity to help you recover and maintain your health to an optimal level in the same way he has addressed his own.
