I’m Dr Lauretta Ihonor BSc, MBBS, MA - a medical doctor turned health journalist and consultant. In a world where wellness/nutrition is big business and superfoods, 'miracle' cures are fast-growing with no real regulation, my focus is on shining a light on health products that are truly effective.
DID YOU KNOW THAT WHILE MEDICINES MUST BE PROVEN BOTH SAFE AND EFFECTIVE BEFORE BEING SOLD IN THE UK, MAKERS OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS, HEALTH FOODS AND WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCTS DON'T HAVE TO PROVE THESE PRODUCTS ACTUALLY WORK BEFORE THEY SELL THEM TO YOU?
I combine my extensive training in medicine and health/nutrition research with years of experience as a health journalist for specialist medical publications and broadcasters, such as CNN, Sky News and the BBC, to:
Help individuals, companies and brands develop health solutions that truly work and are based on sound scientific evidence rather than marketing hype.
