Johanne Cluff

New Client Coordinator

Having suffered with ME/CFS for many years, Johanne became determined to find a way back to good health.  On her road to recovery she gained a deep interest in hypothyroidism, and published Dr Durrant-Peatfield’s book The Great Thyroid Scandal.  She is currently studying for a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy at BCNH College of Nutrition and Health.  Johanne is passionate about helping people find their way back to a healthy happy life, and brings that passion to her role as one of the New Patient Co-ordinators at the OHC.
