I’m Aileen Smith, I’m a BANT and CNHC Registered Nutritional Therapist, with a DipION qualification from the Institute For Optimum Nutrition in London.
“My aim is to inspire you to optimum health in a way that is easy and achievable for you. I love to help people who have the intention to live healthily yet feel they need nutritional expertise and guidance to help them achieve their personal health goals”.
The Health Heroine Nutrition Clinic is based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, however I occasionally run clinics in other UK locations AND I offer Virtual Consultations (by Skype) for those unable to visit me in person. Find out more about my consultations at http://thehealthheroinenutritionclinic.com/
I provide nutrition and wellbeing advice and coaching for clients interested in uncovering the root cause of their health concern and wishing to optimise their health naturally.
I am happy to work with any condition, however my special interests are:
- Promoting Female Health
- Healthy Weight Management etc
- How Stress Impacts on Physical Health
- Mindfulness around Food
- Managing Health in the Corporate World
I’ll prepare a Personalised Health Optimisation Plan that fits with your lifestyle, budget and your food likes and dislikes based on your personal health history and analysis of your diet and lifestyle. Where appropriate I may recommend functional laboratory tests and/or nutritional supplements.
I love to help my clients by sharing my nutritional knowledge alongside my love of good food and my experience of making health and lifestyle changes whilst running a business and having a busy life.
I’m a ‘foodie’ at heart, I believe food is to nourish and to fuel you but it should always be fun, pleasurable and a social celebration. I like to offer help and practical advice to fit with your busy life and that you’ll easily adapt to your lifestyle.
I’d be delighted to have a chat with you to see how I may be able to help. I always suggest that you book a no obligation Free 25 minute Health & Energy Evaluation with me before booking any programme. I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Nutritional Therapy (DipION)
I undertook my 4 years training at the renowned Institute For Optimum Nutrition in London.
I’ve been trained to use a patient centred body systems approach. I will spend time with you, listening to your health history and looking at the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors (such as sleep, relaxation, exercise, movement, nutrition and stress) which may be influencing your symptoms and health conditions.
I love to analyse a client’s case to help identify the potential underlying reasons for their current health status. I find that being able to give a client an understanding of what is going on and what may have triggered their symptoms can assist them in implementing their health optimisation plan.
I also regularly attend conferences and post graduate educational events enabling me to apply the most recent advances in nutritional science in my clinical practice, visit www.thehealthheroinenutritionclinic.com to read more.

Some Client Feedback
"I thought I had a reasonably healthy lifestyle and diet – I did however recognise that I had numerous bad habits, which over the years I had tried and failed to overcome. My coaching was a revelation and highlighted many things I didn’t understand about nutrition. Each session provided practical notes tailored to my food challenges, and listing commitments I had made. I changed my view on what I saw as good and bad food and quickly experienced the benefits of changing my bad habits; lethargic feelings disappeared, I had boundless energy, I lost weight without trying.
The result – I feel fantastic!"
"As a busy self-employed person juggling work, family, friends I always felt there was never enough hours in the day. I regularly felt burnt out and didn’t sleep well. During my sessions with Aileen, we discussed in detail my lifestyle including exercise, nutrition and patterns of behaviour and the areas that I needed to focus on to get my sleep pattern back on track. I’m deeply grateful to her for the kind way in which she transferred her knowledge and insight to me and can truly say “I loved my sessions with The Health Heroine”.
The Zest4life programme made such sense to me that I now consider the nutritional value of every meal that I eat. Of course, I am not perfect and I have days and events weekends when I go 'off plan' but it is always in my mind what I should be doing, I feel much more positive about the food I eat and in the last 2 months I have not had any processed food or pre-prepared meals, I haven't bought any biscuits, sweets or cakes and when I feel in need of a treat, a couple of squares of dark chocolate does the trick....... honest.
I wanted to become slimmer but wanted to be healthier at the same time and I feel that this programme has helped to achieve this.
I lost weight and inches on the Zest4life programme, however, the focus on caring about myself and living well, rather than losing weight helped me to commit to this programme. I'm now enjoying my food and I feel much happier with myself
