Cristiano Percoco BSc (Hons) Clinical Nutritional Therapist
Your health is the best investment you will ever make.
Hi and thank you for visiting my profile. I very much appreciate your time and I respect the fact you are looking for a solution to your problem/s.
My original passion and then expertise in Nutrition came from my own journey out of serious illness many years ago. I was able to recover by adjusting my diet and life style. My personal journey made me believe that our physical and emotional bodies can regain optimal health, if we do the right thing.

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.
I offer 15 minutes free initial consultation over the phone if needed.
Please get in touch directly for information about my fees.
I also offer discounts when booking a set of three or five consultations.
5% discount for video or phone consultations.
I practice in Bournemouth, or I home visit whenever needed.
I use functional testing in more complex cases.
Some supplementation might be needed at a discounted rate compared to retail.
Monday to Friday 12.00-18.00 (last appointment). Some availability on Saturday.
Over the phone and video consultations also available.
Before your first appointment you will need to complete a questionnaire, which includes your health goals, a comprehensive health and medical screen and a three days food and symptom diary. This should be ideally emailed back to me prior your initial appointment. The more I know the better I may be able to guide your own body’s return to health.
After this preliminary examination, we will discuss the most appropriate dietary and life style interventions to suit your needs and health goals.
Nutritional Therapy is not a quick fix, but a journey of self discovery and it may take some time to regain optimum health. I understand that change, for any part of life, is always hard to embrace, but I believe that with the right tools, mind set and attitude, impossible things may become possible.
You won't be left alone on your journey. We will work together as a team, which means you can contact me via email in between consultations for any burning questions or if you need to share new insights. I will also reach out to you, on a regular basis, in order to check-in on your progresses. I want you to succeed in pursuing your health objectives.
