What's Your Body Trying To Tell You?
A science-backed quiz that decodes your symptoms and uncovers their hidden root causes so you can become your healthiest, most energetic, and most vibrant self.
You used to be able to run your life, and now it feels as if life runs you. You have distant memories of a life well lived. A life of purpose, adventure and pleasure. Sure, you were busy, but your body and mind could handle life’s many challenges.
You were showing up in your career, with your family and in all the essential places and relationships in your life because you were strong, confident, productive, and crucially, you felt well.
because you lack mental clarity, memory recall, and your focus is not quite what it was. It’s affecting your productivity and communications and making you worry about your bottom line.
and continuing to drag yourself through life, giving body parts a pep talk just to make it out the door or, worse, sitting on the sidelines watching life go by day after day.
After all, this isn’t how you saw your life panning out.
to conquer the medical mysteries stealing your sanity and success.
for the conundrum that is your family’s health history and the money spent on fad diet programmes and sub-par supplements that have yet to yield the results you were promised.
Full of vitality, vibrant and reassured that you know what it takes for you to be well.
And never have to worry about dropping the ball professionally or personally.
Because you have definitive tools that align with your unique biochemistry and genetics and help cultivate good health.
Start your dream project or begin your meaningful adventures while having the capacity to adapt to challenges and recover quickly.
Safe and secure in the knowledge that you’re living in a body that is ready for the next phase. Whether that’s increasing your chances of conceiving or entering a new phase of your own life.
A cutting-edge, comprehensive, science-backed wellness programme that’s designed to help individuals dealing with chronic symptoms or conditions by addressing the root causes so their health concerns no longer negatively impact their everyday life.
You see, here’s the thing, your health concerns didn’t just materialise from a blend of bad luck and thin air. In most cases, they’ve been bubbling under the surface for years or decades before your doctor can even make a diagnosis.
And it’s unsettling and infuriating to know and feel that something isn’t quite right in your body – only to be told repeatedly that your test results are “normal”, there’s nothing wrong, and nothing can be done. You just have to sit tight and wait for the resulting disease to manifest.

Leah de Souza-Thomas is a biomedical scientist, public health epidemiologist, functional health consultant and creator of the Wellness Accelerator+.
After 19 years of exploring and advising on contagious diseases and chronic conditions at a local, regional and national level across health protection, health improvement and healthcare public health, Leah came to a shocking revelation: Conventional approaches to managing not only chronic diseases but individual wellness simply weren’t working.
And she wasn’t going to sit on the sidelines and wait for it to get worse.
In addition to her Biomedical Sciences (BSc), Modern Epidemiology (MSc) and Public Health (MPH) degrees, Leah has completed numerous studies in lifestyle medicine, including the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) accredited course Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine, the Institute for Functional Medicine’s (IFM) Applying Functional Medicine to Clinical Practice (AFMCP), all six IFM Advanced Practice Modules (covering bioenergetics, cardiometabolic, environmental, gut, hormone and immune health), and the IFM Therapeutic Food Plans course.
Leah knew we needed to think differently about our approach to solving the chronic health crisis. Today, it’s this new – data-driven – approach combining her public health expertise and biomedical training with science-based lifestyle medicine that she successfully uses with clients to transform their health and lives.
You’re correct – there are lots of free resources and low-cost health programmes available online. However, while you could find temporary relief from one-size-fits-all social media or Google solutions, there is nothing like the Wellness Accelerator+ out there. This programme is life-changing (if not life-saving); it addresses the root cause of your health concerns and helps you restore your health by embracing a holistic approach that is personalised and targeted to your lifestyle, health needs and goals, so that you have the freedom to live life on your terms, rather than your symptoms.
It’s also worth remembering that as with all investments, investing in your most valuable asset (your health) will cost money, but getting ill is truly expensive.
This programme starts from £3,650. There are slight variations in pricing based on your individual testing needs. I recommend applying and scheduling a call to get an exact quote.
I know you’ve tried to fix the way you’ve been feeling. I know you have the best intentions and are willing to do whatever it takes to feel better. You’ve tried doctors and felt dismissed. You’ve spent thousands on supplements and diet changes. You know these issues are all caused by something, but no one is taking you seriously.
I know how hard it can be to find the right solution. You might try something promising, only to be disappointed by the results. You’re doing everything right (or at least, as you were told to) but still not seeing improvements – you’re dealing with crippling fatigue, and you can’t lose weight, clear your skin or see the improvements you crave.
I believe in and stand by what this programme can help you achieve. This isn’t a gimmicky cleanse or detox – it’s a comprehensive, holistic approach designed with your specific needs in mind and combined with a deep understanding of the innate ability of the human body to heal successfully with the right inputs.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to wellness, and that’s why we created the Wellness Accelerator+. Our programme was made with your lifestyle in mind, so you can focus on the things that matter most to you – career advancement, family time, or anything in between. We want you to know that when it comes down to it, your health matters as much as any other part of your life does. And without it, no part of your life will work as you want it to. At The Thrive Practice, we want you to live the life that makes sense for YOU.
Your body is in crisis, and it’s letting you know that it needs help.
Your symptoms are your body’s way of demanding help. Consider it a warning sign. You’re doing yourself a disservice every time you make the choice to ignore these signs. It’s time to get to the root of the problem with this game-changing programme and get your motivation, sense of hope and lust for life back. It’s time to start living again.
After your initial consultation, you’ll receive your test kits in the post. Most of the tests are performed at home, as required samples are easily obtained (e.g., saliva, breath, stool, dried blood spot or urine). Where a blood draw is required, this will be taken by a local phlebotomist.
The proven, scientific approach to restoring and optimising health used in this programme supports all the systems of the body as a whole, as opposed to isolated symptoms and systems. As a result, this programme is suitable for taming and transforming the following:
• Chronic hives
• Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Grave’s disease
• Food sensitivities
• Heartburn/acid reflux
• Food intolerances
• Candida overgrowth
• Parasitic infections
• Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
• Inflammatory Bowel Disease
• Low libido
• Adrenal dysfunction
• Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
• Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
• Amenorrhoea & Irregular cycles
• Hormonal imbalance
• Adrenal dysfunction
• Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
• Grave’s disease
Metabolic & heart health
• Blood sugar dysregulation
• Cholesterol and blood pressure issues
• Weight loss resistance
• Insomnia and chronic fatigue
• Pregnancy/post-natal support

Absolutely. Functional labs are recommended testing based on the needs of each client. This isn’t a cookie-cutter approach to health and healing. Recommendations for testing for food sensitivities, mould, heavy metal toxicity, and more are made if suspected.
I work with clients outside of this programme through specific wellness programmes. Further information on these programmes can be found here: Restore and Rebalance.
