Auriol Moores Dip ION FdSc MBANT CNHC
Auriol is a Registered Nutritional Therapist located in the Berkshire area with clinics in Wokingham, Bracknell, Crowthorne and Reading areas.
What you eat, how you digest and the kind of lifestyle you lead can have a major effect – both physically and mentally on your body. The nutritional choices you make affect how you live your life on a daily basis and are crucial in ensuring that all your body systems work synergistically. In its most basic sense Nutritional Therapy is about promoting optimum health and peak performance and preventing disease.
Vitology Nutrition offers individual personalised nutritional advice and support. Auriol works with a range of health conditions including, weight loss, fatigue (and related conditions) and overall gut health. Vitology also offers diagnostic lab testing helping to get to the root cause of your health concerns.
It isn't just what you eat that contributes to your overall well-being but it is important to also consider your lifestyle, genetic make-up and the environment within which you live and work. If any of this is out of balance, this can affect your overall health and well-being and affect your overall equilibrium. You can't change your genes, however you can change what influences them and that includes your diet and the environment. Auriol offers a range of nutrigenomic tests covering many aspects of health and chronic disease including DNA Health, DNA Diet, DNA Oestrogen & DNA Sport.
*Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, ALL consultations have been moved to online and can be conducted from the comfort of your own home during the daytime, evening or weekends (subject to availability).

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.
Consultation Fee - (1 hour) £97.50 (Pay as you Go)
In order to see the full benefit of your nutrition programme, and to give your body enough time to heal, a minimum of three consultations is usually required.
We charge in blocks of 3 hours and this gives you the freedom to choose how you spend your credit. i.e. 3 face to face (1 hour consultations), 30 minute follow ups on the phone/Skype or in clinic This also includes emails asking for advice. If the answer is straight forward then there is no charge, however longer answers or phone calls will be deducted from your clinic credit. We will advise you when your credit is running low.
The package price is £285.00. Family and bespoke packages are also available. Weight loss courses and packages are also available. Please contact me for more details.
Health questionnaire/s and 3 day food and lifestyle diary will need to be completed and returned prior to your first appointment in order to get a full clinical history.
I also practice Nutrigeonomics which is how food and the environment affect our genes. This involves a non-invasive swab, from which the SNPs can provide valuable information about genetic variations which then enable me to prescribe precise lifestyle and nutritional recommendations aimed at compensating for the genetic variants. Main tests include DNA Health, DNA Diet, DNA Sport and DNA Oestrogen.
I also run workplace wellbeing programmes and educational health programmes. Please see my website for further details: http://www.vitologynutrition.co.uk/corporate-workshops/
