Anna Cleary Ikin MSc BSc (Hons) CSci FIBMS MBANT - Biomedic Nutritionist®
Registered Nutritional Therapist, Biomedical Scientist, Chartered Scientist, Nutrition and Dietetics student.

I love living in the picturesque Wirral Peninsula, close to Liverpool and Chester. I offer expert Nutritional Therapy services accessible online from your own home.

I am a BANT & CNHC Registered Nutritional Therapist, with a Masters degree in Nutritional Therapy and a background as a Biomedical Scientist, Chartered Scientist and Mental Health Volunteer.

I have over 27 years of experience in NHS laboratory medicine, working behind the scenes, playing a critical role in patient diagnosis and treatment. I am now working in private practice as a Registered Nutritional Therapist helping to unlock the mysteries of unresolved and complex health conditions, including Histamine Intolerance.

Alongside working in private practice, I am studying towards a PgDip in Nutrition and Dietetics, furthering my knowledge and experience in medical aspects of nutrition support. I have also been a mental health volunteer for over 20 years.

My main focus is providing support for and navigating unresolved and complex health conditions. If you have been facing persistent health struggles or have sought interventions without resolution this can be especially challenging and have a huge impact on quality of life. My focus is unraveling these complexities, offering clarity and tailored solutions to support your health, wellbeing and quality of life.

In a world overwhelmed with generic and conflicting nutrition information, I focus on you – your health, diet, circumstances, and lifestyle. Nutritional Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It’s a comprehensive evaluation that considers your unique needs, with a focus on both visible and internal aspects of health.

Together, we can embark on a journey to invest in your health, wellbeing and quality of life. I offer you a personalised and effective solution beyond the generic information found online, and will take positive steps with you towards a healthier future.

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.
