The foods you eat have a profound effect upon your health, mood and energy levels. But you are unique. This means that your particular health concerns, your lifestyle, your environment and your emotions all contribute to your uniqueness. And so does your diet. Like a piece in a jigsaw, the ideal nutritional programme needs to fit you like a glove. That’s why the same latest fad diet will make some people thrive and others feel miserable. I passionately believe in personalised nutritional advice that works for you.

My truly holistic approach combines nutritional and lifestyle advice to support your health through life ups and downs.

Training, Qualifications & Experience
MSc BSc (Hons) NMed PgDip MBANT NTCC CNHC Registered
Spanish-born Miguel has had a life-long love of cooking and good food. Living in London from the mid-nineties he soaked up different cultural traditions, always favouring a Mediterranean diet “with an oriental twist”. He first became interested in the science of nutrition whilst learning about Ayurveda during his 3-year Yoga teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga in the early 2000s. He had just completed his postgraduate studies in Environmental Science, and his inquisitive mind led him to start a degree in Nutritional Medicine with acclaimed Dr Lawrence Plaskett at Plaskett College, which he completed as a BSc Honours at Thames Valley (now West London) University. He has more recently studied Functional Diagnostic Medicine with Drs Grisanti and Weatherby at The Functional Medicine University and FMTown.
He runs two busy London Nutritional Therapy Clinics – Harley Street and Belsize Health, Belsize Park and an evening and weekend clinic in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire. He also runs a specialist weight loss clinic where he devices individualised programmes to suit the individual’s needs. He works with renowned Master Clinical Hypnotherapist Monica Black, as well as with several London-based GPs and Consultants, including a top Neurologist, who routinely refer patients to him for integrative management of their health. He also works at nutrition-based retreats by Detox International..
Miguel has a Lecturer role at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, where he is part of a research project on Psychoneuroimmunology and stress-related diseases. Other of his research interests include oxidative cellular damage as a result of environmental exposure and epigenetics and he is currently writing a book chapter on the biochemical changes triggered by stress during pregnancy, both on the mother and the unborn baby.
Alongside his academic and clinical commitments, Miguel provides research support to academics and clinicians across Europe through his ongoing collaboration with scientific publisher Springer and offers consultancy services to various food supplement companies in the UK and Spain.
Miguel is a proud Director of BANT (British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy), and Deputy Chair of BANT Council. His aim is to help every BANT member attain the highest standards of integrity, knowledge, competence and professionalism in the practice of Nutritional Therapy.

Full Initial Consultation Sawbridgeworth (1 hour): £100
Follow Ups (45 mins): £90
Telephone / Skype consultations: from £90 based on requirements.
Metabolic Balance® from £725 for a 3-month package including programme and consultations.
My fees reflect the time spent researching your health concerns prior to your visit to the clinic, an unrushed, friendly face-to-face consultation, together with limited support via email or telephone during the course of your programme. Some complex cases may require extra support, and I am happy to be in touch on a more regular basis. Any additional charges commensurate with the particulars of your specific case will be discussed at the initial consultation.
The costs for biochemical tests – should you need any – will be agreed with you during the initial appointment. Your practitioner’s fees includes the interpretation of the test and the recommendation of specific dietary and supplementary modifications necessary to correct any imbalances found, although an additional consultation will be necessary to discuss your results and the therapeutic protocol in adequate detail. These consultations can take place over the phone or Skype.
I pride myself in being fully supportive and non-judgmental, and we strive to provide a personal touch to our way of delivering a top quality complementary healthcare experience.
Home and VIP visits arranged by request. Please call us for details.

The naturopatica practice approach puts you at the centre of the picture and works around your needs. It values the importance of the mind/body/spirit connection, so the focus is placed on the whole of your person, i.e. what’s going on inside you as well as in your immediate environment. According to your specific needs, your practitioner will use diverse approaches to ensure you get the best possible experience from the process, from the first email or phone call to your very last consultation.
Nutritional Therapy is a recognised complementary therapy which can be used on its own, or alongside any other therapies. That is why we are equally happy working with your GP or specialist consultant in the ongoing management of your condition as we would be working with or referring you to any other qualified complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner.
All decisions made are participative and informed by evidence obtained from only the most current research on therapeutics and diagnostic methods. This ensures minimal – if any – adverse drug effects and interactions with existing medication and gives you peace of mind.
naturopatica is a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy, BANT and adheres to the professional association’s strict code of conduct. Our aim is to attain the highest standards of integrity, knowledge, competence and professionalism in the practice of Nutritional Therapy.
naturopatica does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, sex, age, disability or sexual orientation.

What is Metabolic Balance?®
Metabolic Balance ®is an individualised health optimising programme that works by balancing hormonal production. Each programme is different, and the recommendations are based on a thorough investigation based on a set of initial blood tests. The plan allows for a simple and hassle free adjustment to your daily diet without supplementing meals or eliminating food groups. You will be required to eat 3 regular meals per day. The beauty of it is that it is absolutely natural, i.e. just based on foods that you can buy in your local supermarket. There are no pills or powders to take, and its effects are incredibly profound and long-lasting.

Metabolic Balance® is suitable for anyone wanting to:
- Achieve healthy and sustainable weight loss
