Caroline Hind - Weight loss, Brain Health, Blood glucose. Clinical Nutritionist
Hi, I'm Caroline. I'm a Registered Nutritionist specialising in troubleshooting weight loss issues, supporting brain health and helping people to achieve good blood glucose and energy levels. I work with adults and children on a one-to-one basis and periodically run group coaching programmes and workshops (for adults only, though children are welcome to accompany parents).
Private clinical nutrition consultations allow me to carry out health assessment and dietary analysis from a functional medicine perspective.
In addition, I offer and can advise on a range of functional testing for metabolic health, including full cholesterol and thyroid panels, fasting insulin and ageing markers.
“I found Caroline to be extremely knowledgeable, thorough and empathic. She is very enthusiastic about nutrition and this is infectious! I feel that I have benefited from a new way of thinking about my diet and how it affects my health.” E.B.
I'm a low-carb practitioner (a Registered Nutritionist and Certified Primal Health Coach) who has worked with many people to stabilise their blood sugar levels, their weight and their energy. It was through my work in this area that I realised just how much of an impact the right food choices were having on my patients' brain health and their overall metabolic function. It turns out that research suggests people suffering conditions that affect the brain can have elevated blood glucose levels even a decade before they develop problems. This not only ties in brain health with other aspects of metabolic health, such as weight, lipids, blood sugar and arterial health, but it also means that food and lifestyle modifications present a big opportunity for prevention and improvement.
I find this interconnected area of health fascinating and my functional medicine training allows me to look at the individual's challenges from an holistic viewpoint that is nonetheless grounded in evidence-based science.
I often work with people who have been forced to consider their brain health for one reason or another or who are struggling with the early stages of neurodegenerative issues. For others, their doctor has warned them that they must focus on their blood sugar, weight or other metabolic markers to avoid health complications.
I also support people looking to tailor or troubleshoot low-carb, keto, intermittent fasting and paleo nutrition.
One-to-one functional medicine consultations include dietary analysis, health assessment and identification of any testing, supplement and nutritional and lifestyle needs. I advise a commitment to three consultations so that the correct course of action can be identified, trialled, monitored and adjusted.
For children and patients with complex issues, I help parents/carers to coordinate where necessary different healthcare providers and create individualised dietary and lifestyle strategies that take into account recommendations from other practitioners.
In addition to working one-to-one to provide functional medicine care, I offer nutrition and lifestyle support in a group setting, including:
>Employee Wellness workshops and programmes tailored to the individual needs of organisations. Topics include handling stress, eating for energy, nutritional self-care, taming cravings.
>Primal Transformation Health Coaching 6-Week Programme
>Happy Guts one-day nutrition and lifestyle workshop retreats held periodically in the beautiful East Yorkshire countryside. Ideal for stress-busting.
>The Low Carb Solution programme for T2DM - I volunteer as an ambassador for national charity, the Public Health Collaboration, providing support and information to health professionals about low-carb nutrition for T2DM and running 8-week group programmes for patients.
Call or message me for an informal chat about how I might be able to help you. or book a 20-minute phone call via the scheduling button on my website.

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.
