Alison Wells DipION MBANT RCNHC
A New You. Energised. Revitalised.
Think that's a bold claim? Well, in three months you’re going to be feeling a lot better. Thanks to the wonders of the world's oldest healing system, nutritional therapy will treat all of you, just as nature intended.
Delivered with only natural foods, along with supplements and minerals if you need them, nutritional therapy proves that you really are what you eat. Very quickly, you'll not only find you start to feel better, but you’ll sleep better, your skin will begin glowing and your ability to focus will dramatically increase, as your entire system starts to restored to homeostasis.
Healthy inside. Happy outside.
When people ask what nutritional therapy is, it's easier to explain what it’s not first. As it isn't a diet, unless we find you’re intolerant to something, we choose foods for their healing factors and nutritious value. There's no calorie counting or faddy eating on my watch!
We go back to nature and eat the way we're all meant to eat. Food is wholesome, seasonal and vitamin-packed for goodness, and recipes are reassuringly simple. Working with me will leave you feeling empowered and confident. In fact, our goal is to get to the point where you don't need me anymore. With nutritional therapy, once we've worked out what you need to eat, nature takes care of the rest. Just you wait and see.
Everyone calls me Ali.
I’m down to earth when it comes to food. We need to eat, we need to get certain nutrients and we need to get them in a certain way or we hit major problems. We’ve got one shot at life and I’m continually staggered at just how much nutrition can transform the 90 years or so we’re alive.
But being healthy ‘the Ali way’ isn’t about rules and beating ourselves up when we break them. It’s creative, inclusive, and delicious. Recipes are easy to whizz up even when tired after work, and I will coach you from the side like the champion you are from the side.

What my clients say
I was very impressed with Alison's knowledge of her subject, but also the time and trouble she took to research and understand the conditions which trouble me. She has provided sensible, straightforward dietary guidelines for me to follow which started to show early results and have produced continued improvement. Her general advice on supplements (type, brand and dosage) and a specific natural treatment for my fingernail problem have been most efficacious.
I had gotten to the point where food terrified me! Everything I ate triggered an often painful reaction of some type. At my wit’s end and loosing faith in traditional medicine I turned to Nutritional Therapy. Alison’s “Hold my Hand” package was just what I needed. She worked very closely with me to figure out what was going on and help me resolve it. We ran private tests to confirm what Alison thought to be the problem and adjusted my diet accordingly. I am no longer terrified of eating and haven’t felt this good in years!'
I was sceptical at first, however, aided by my wife and the excruciating pain in my joints I decided to give Nutritional Therapy a chance. Alison’s knowledge of the area instantly set me at ease, she helped me understand all the blood tests my GP had run, providing me with a detailed report, helping me to clearly understand what was happening within. Through our sessions and testing, Alison figured out the trigger which she then helped me to rectify. My GP has approved my withdrawal from pharmaceutical drugs, I am pain and symptom-free, my ‘beer belly’ has disappeared (something my wife is very grateful for!) and I now believe in the power of Nutritional Therapy.
I thought I had it all, a top job with a jet-set lifestyle, holidays and business on 5 out of 7 continents. I loved it, but as time progressed my body started to misbehave. My energy levels started to fall, my stomach swelled and bloated, my gut was, well, simply not happy. I had just about gotten to the point where enough was enough. I was on the verge of giving everything I had worked my whole life for up, because the thought of getting out of bed in the morning was simply too much for me. Then a friend introduced me to Alison, she gave me back my life! I loved her “Hold my Hand” package. I felt supported the whole way through my journey. My case was complicated and my work commitments regarding travel didn’t make Alison’s job very easy. Six months later and I am able to work with more clarity and energy than I have ever had. I am happy healthy and in control.
After a mysterious potbellied bloating kept coming and going, Ali put me on a strict detox for 3 days and then a month of clean eating. Whilst not entirely pleasant, I am still standing and haven’t had an instance of bloating back since. I know what to eat and what to skip, which is a god-send! Ali is a kind and detailed focused person who went well beyond what I expected and ploughed through research to rule out this and that, which made me feel genuinely cared for, and finally, listened to. My partner was so impressed he got help with a weight loss plan, and dropped 3 kilos as a result!
Alison was so friendly and made me feel at ease straight away.....which is difficult as I have a social phobia which has kept me in the house for ten years. She is very knowledgeable and intelligent and talked me through the whole process. It didn’t take long to decide she was the one for me! I would highly recommend her, I have a long road ahead to losing weight and healing my body and with Alison, I feel like it is actually possible. I cannot thank her enough for the kindness and patience she has shown me.
I have had the chance to work with Alison on my goal of losing weight. It has been 7 years since I quit smoking, in which I ended up gaining almost 2 stone and I have never managed to lose any weight since quitting smoking. Alison managed to get me to lose almost a stone within four months. After a very detailed questionnaire that I had to fill in for her, we had a consultation session where she explained what she believed I should do in order to achieve my goal. It didn’t feel at all like I sacrificed anything. She managed to educate me and made me understand what I should do or should avoid. It took me some time to adjust my preferences to more healthy options, which I have done with Alison’s help.
I highly recommend Alison as she shows expertise in the nutritional industry. I am confident she has the skill set necessary to handle any challenge. She is professional and at the same time her approach is very friendly which gives you the empowerment and comfort you need to change your lifestyle and manage your weight. I now feel healthier and I will dare to say that I understand my body more. Thank you Alison!
I am very happy I found Alison to be my Nutritional Therapist. So many of my questions regarding the correct diet got answered!
We are dealing with 2 problems which in a way are opposite to each other. Alison did create me a great eating plan and also gave so many useful advices. Only after a month I could see the difference, my friends are noticing that I look better. Also, she is very understanding. Knowing that I am going on a holiday she offered me great swaps for my favourite alcohol drinks to make sure I enjoy my time!
I feel great and I would definitely recommend Alison's services. The last thing she would do is to make you not enjoy your journey to the changes. She will always find a great compromise if needed.
It's the best investment in myself I've ever done.
