Amie Butler Weight-loss and Gut Health Nutritional Therapist
Are you confused about weight loss or how to eat a 'healthy diet'? Have you tried low-fat dieting or calorie counting, lost the weight but can not maintain it? Are you concerned about your weight and do not know where to start?
As a nutritional therapist I believe there is no 'one size fits all' approach to weight loss and wellbeing, after all you are unique and so are your health needs! As a nutritional therapist I focus upon addressing the underlying cause of imbalances, dysfunctions and disease supporting the body towards optimising weight loss and health. I work with you to create a long-term program that is right for you and your lifestyle setting the stage for empowerment and self-responsibility.
Nutritional therapy can help support you on your journey to optimal wellness. I provide personalised and evidenced informed consultations from my clinic in Whitstable, Kent. This can either be in a safe one to one setting or via online video call.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
INITIAL CONSULTATION: £95
Your first consultation will last up to 75 minutes. In the consultation we will review and discuss your health questionnaire and food diary, talk about your health goals and medical history and I may also ask about any other factors in your life such as stress, family or work pressures. Based on the information you provide, we will work together to formulate practical and achievable diet and lifestyle program tailored to your health needs? After the consultation a personalised dietary and lifestyle report will be sent to you that will include nutritional recommendations for you to follow. Some optional tests or nutrition supplements may also be recommended if appropriate. I may also provide you with recipes ideas, meal plans and shopping lists to help and support you on your journey to optimum nutrition.
Nutritional therapy is not a replacement for medical advice, as a practitioner who works alongside other medical professionals when necessary I will refer you for any ‘red flag’ symptoms to your medical professional.
FOLLOW UP CONSULTATION £65
A follow-up consultation will last up to 45 minutes, ideally this is 4-6 weeks after your initial consultation. In this time we will discuss how you found the nutritional changes to your diet, evaluate any symptoms, changes in health status or any laboratory tests and we will discuss how next to move forward with your health goals. You will then be sent another personalised dietary and lifestyle report that will include additional or alternative nutritional recommendations for you to follow. Again this may include some optional tests or nutrition supplements.
METABOLIC BALANCE £995
Metabolic Balance is a three-month programme that re-sets your metabolism and hormone levels, particularly insulin, in order to enable your body to reach its natural weight. A blood test shows which foods are best suited to your personal biochemistry and this determines your eating plan. The results are successful long term weight management. As a metabolic balance coach I support and provide 4 consultations to help guide you through the programme.
