About me

I'm Ali, I'm a registered nutritional therapist with the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT) and a graduate of AFMCP UK from the Institute for Functional Medicine.

My clinic is based in Durham city but I also offer remote consultations via Skype and home visits when appropriate. I work with individuals who want to improve their health and lifestyle helping them to discover the amazing vitality life has to offer! Through high quality nutrition and lifestyle modifications we work together to reclaim motivation and lust for life. Whether you suffer from existing symptoms and conditions or just want to improve your general health I aim to help!

I have trained in the following areas:

  • Weight management
  • Insulin resistance and metabolic imbalances
  • Female hormone health
  • Digestion support
  • Energy production
  • Gluten sensitivity
  • Stress management

Through nutritional therapy it is possible to support most areas of health and work together to help you optimise your current health status. By restoring proper function through diet and lifestyle modification the body can potentially re-balance itself and start functioning at its optimal level. Health is not simply the absence of disease but rather living life with vitality and energy.

Working together and engaging you as a client is my goal. Providing a support system and educating you on how to make the right choices for your own health and how to easily incorporate these choices into your everyday busy life. Advice is up-to-date and evidence based providing answers to what can sometimes be complex health concerns.

This involves an in-depth 90 minutes consultation which helps tailor your diet and lifestyle to your specific needs, goals and symptoms. It can help support existing conditions or simply gain a more detailed insight into your health. It involves the completion of an in-depth health questionnaire prior to the consultation which will then be expanded on during the consultation looking at family history, lifestyle, personal history, stress levels, diet and current health status.
