Would you let Nutritional Vitality discover the most precious you?
Sarah’s own vitality and enthusiasm for life is a testimony to her belief in the "Power of Food". Sarah has had many happy years successfully running her busy practice, Nutritional Vitality. In combining her passion for both nutrition and psychology, Sarah has created a unique therapy in which nutritional science and expertise are blended with her humanistic, person-centred psychotherapy. Often people know what they "should" eat, yet struggle to do so. Addressing these psychological factors takes the struggle away.
Sarah's work is varied – in addition to one on one client consultations, she regularly appears on local radio and writes articles for national magazines and local press on a wide range of subjects including Child Nutrition and Stress management.
Sarah freelances with corporate nutritional training and promotion, working with corporate names such as Danone, Nuffield Health, Tesco Pharmacy, Booths Supermarket, Greenvale Homes and English Lakes Hotels.
Sarah practices yoga, walks the Lake District Mountains and runs competitively. Her most favourite way to relax is with a good book, preferably in the sunshine on a camp site.
It's ALL about You!
Perhaps you just want to feel better generally or address specific symptoms? Maybe you are an athlete in need of sports nutrition to really tweak your performance? With so many diets in the media, could you be confused about which foods are best for you and need a little help making sense of it all? Perhaps you know what to do to lose weight but you don't want to do it alone? Or you want both - nutritional advice and someone by your side along the way!
Whatever you want, Sarah is here to support you in achieving your goals with as little effort on your part as possible. There's no point in making it complicated! It's not about extremes but supporting you to make gradual, manageable changes which are the best ones for you.
During your Initial Consultation, Sarah takes a detailed analysis of your dietary and nutritional intake and a detailed health case history from you. Together you will agree your goals and dietary changes.
Afterwards you will receive:
- A strategy for health – linking the symptoms to potential nutritional imbalances and providing support and encouragement to change diet and lifestyle
- A written action plan – personalised advice for dietary and lifestyle changes
- A written supplement programme – details of any recommended nutritional supplements
- The recommendation of any non-invasive clinical tests, if required
- Reasonable telephone/email support throughout your programme
Your follow up consultations are important. Your nutritional recommendations are often not life-long, but will be subject to review. You will gain the maximum benefit from seeing Sarah at 4-6 weekly intervals to monitor your progress and make any adjustments necessary.
Sometimes you might want more information about what's happening in your body. Functional tests can help focus your programme accordingly. Tests Sarah recommends are:
- Adrenal Stress Index
- Gastrointestinal Function and IgA food reactions
- Fungal stool profiles
- Thyroid Function
- Male and Female hormonal panels
- Yorktest Food Intolerance Testing
Workplace nutrition can have a huge impact on reducing absenteeism and increasing morale, performance and ultimately productivity. The support and protection of your employee health is vital. For every lost man-day it could cost the company upwards of two man-days through loss of productivity and increased overtime. Sarah can tailor a bespoke package to suit your individual corporate needs such as:
- Menu planning
- "Meet the Expert" events
- Nutrition training for staff of schools, residential care and children's homes
- Gift packages
- Writing for your publication
- Well-being workshops

"I find Sarah extremely helpful. She is never judgemental – always positive – with a calming nature - and very professional in her approach. Sarah listens, and asks questions, she offers advice and suggestions. In short, Sarah addresses the problems and advises on how to work with them. Thank you Sarah – you’ve done the impossible for me, and I’m still enjoying the fruits of my labours. My lifestyle has changed and so has my outlook. "
"Thank you so much for your good advice. It has made an enormous difference!!! I see my Lama for spiritual healing and couldn’t have gone without your help."
"I found the dietary therapy amazingly helpful, as it changed my life from several years of pain and suffering to back to living my normal life and I would (and have) recommended it and you."
"I follow Sarah’s advice around 80% of the time, and 20% of the time I’ll eat some of what I used to before. I can honestly say that seeing Sarah Garton Nutritional Therapist is one of the best things I’ve ever done."
"Sarah is great to deal with and always available to answer any questions and give me guidance when I need it. Since the first consultation Sarah's knowledge and helpful approach have made a big difference to me - I can't recommend her highly enough"
"I found the whole experience very, very positive and it has enabled me to improve my health and general well being so much that I am continuing to use your guidelines everyday. The written reports were especially helpful to me as they were concise and well presented; I still refer to them daily. After many years of trying to 'go it alone' but also trying to find the correct information in books to do so, to be able talk over my health concerns with you and have you explain the reasoning behind your recommendations was so enlightening and comforting. I would have no hesitation in recommending your programme (and indeed I have) to anyone. As for me, it has changed my whole outlook on what to eat, when to eat it and why I should eat it. The supplements you recommended have also made such a difference too - the condition of my nails has improved greatly, my skin is superb, my sleep patterns, which were very broken, have improved so much that I now regularly sleep 6 hours a night which in itself is wonderful. To say that you have changed my life for the better is an understatement, because of your programme I feel much healthier, more able to cope with life’s ups and downs and most importantly for me, I look forward to every new day knowing I am doing everything I can to keep myself in the best of health.”
"Sarah has been a great help to me. I feel much better since implementing the supplements and dietary changes she suggested. The positive results have shown up in my blood work results, too! I have recommended Sarah to others also. She's been great both for both me and my son."
“Sarah has literally changed my life around. Years of yo-yo dieting had well and truly taken their toll on my wellbeing both physically and mentally, and I had gotten to the point where I thought that there was something very seriously wrong with me. I’ve been seeing Sarah now for seven months and the improvements in the way I feel and look has been remarkable. Having thoroughly assessed all my symptoms we have slowly worked at eliminating the causes and there is no turning back for me now. Sarah has helped me discover undiagnosed food intolerances and this in itself has been fundamental in how I feel today. Unlike any other diet with Sarah’s help I have finally weakened my emotional attachment to food, and now have a much healthier attitude to how, when and what I eat. I shudder to think where I might be today if I had not have met Sarah seven months ago.”
"I have found your advice/nutritional support very beneficial to my son’s health and emotional health/wellbeing. I continue to order and give my son supplements as advised by yourself. I also am very grateful for the general advice you offer me whenever I ask. I never expect you to spend the time answering my questions but am always pleasantly surprised that you have taken the time out of your busy schedule."
“It’s very difficult to express in words just how much Sarah has helped my daughter and me through her Nutritional Therapy. On both accounts Sarah has thrown us a ‘life-line’, through her therapy she has helped us understand how lifestyles and diets can and will change for the better your individual well-being and vitality.
"Food was a very emotive subject for me having suffered with an eating disorder for over a decade. I contacted Sarah for help and found her to be very approachable, reassuring and knowledgeable. The dietary prescription that was created specifically for me following a detailed health assessment was realistic and practical, with the rationale fully explained in a format I could understand. Sarah's e-mail support was brilliant when I found things difficult or had any questions and I am delighted with the progress I have made, following the advised changes in diet and lifestyle. I was able to understand why I was finding recovery difficult, how to progress and Sarah encouraged me to take ownership of my own improvements in health. I now enjoy my food, have much more energy and feel a definite improvement in my mental clarity. Sarah's positive and pragmatic approach has enabled me to achieve the objectives I set at our initial meeting, and learn how to maintain my future health. I feel very positive about the future and could not be happier with the nutritional therapy I received."
