The Victoria Clinic

Victoria Clinic: 01483 723688
I am a fully insured, UK registered Nutritional Therapist trained to understand how food and nutrients interact with the function and health of the body.
A satisfied client: "Eleanor Strang has made an enormous difference to my life. I had suffered for over a year from stomach and bowel trouble, seen my doctor on various occasions and visited a specialist twice, with no solutions.
Her common sense approach to my troubles, analyses of the gut microflora and advice have literally changed my life. I am suffering no longer and can now lead a normal life – previously arranging anything in advance was impossible as I never knew how I’d feel. Thank you Eleanor." Mary, London.
You may be looking for some practical advice on how to change your eating habits, or perhaps looking to understand how your food choices are contributing to a health condition. Perhaps you've read that the right diet can reduce your risk of a disease that runs in your family? My advice will be evidence based and well researched, and I support you in how to make these changes to your diet. The smallest changes, when they become habitual, can make measurable differences over the long term.
Healthy food choices generally support well-being, whereas poor dietary choices challenge that well-being and will eventually manifest as symptoms of ill-health. However it's never too late to learn. The right diet can help to protect against disease, restore optimal energy levels and encourage a return to good health, vitality and well-being.
How it works
At the Victoria Clinic in Woking we start with a 'discovery' half hour appointment, where you can chat about your concerns, your health issues and gain some understanding about how nutritional therapy works. Some people may have a health condition they wish to explore a little deeper and so will book a package of 3 consultations, which allows for any functional tests that may be recommended. We ask you to complete a Health & Nutrition questionnaire which involves a 3 day food diary. Your second (50 mins) consultation is then based on my analysis of this completed questionnaire. Some email support 2 weeks after this consultation can help you manage the advice given in the dietary protocol, or answer any questions that have arisen. Your third consultation 4 weeks later reviews how you are getting on and the success of the protocol. The best results are experienced by those who commit to a minimum of three consultations. Nutrition is not a quick fix, but if the changes implemented become habits - great results are possible.
So, YOUR goals are our starting point, but having trained in the Functional Medicine model of nutrition, I can explore the potential root causes of any symptoms of ill-health, that may have resulted from years of dietary imbalance. By addressing any underlying issues, and tailoring appropriate advice to your individual needs, (avoiding a standard, one size fits all approach), with a little guidance, you can learn to make the right choices, and ensure you are eating the right foods to optimise your health and well-being.
Clients' personal goals can vary, but typically dietary advice is sought to restore better gut function (digestion, absorption and elimination), or maybe to better manage weight or stress levels, or support a variety of diagnosed life-style related health conditions, like autoimmunity. Advice can investigate food intolerances or allergies or help to optimise hormone health or support fertility and conception. Exercise, sport and energy levels can also benefit from evidence-based nutritional advice. Functional testing through reputable laboratories can help to identify nutrient deficiencies or biochemical imbalances, manifesting as symptoms.
Some more satisfied clients:
"Having been diagnosed with an autoimmune gut condition in my early twenties, I continued to experience symptoms even after adhering to a strict gluten free diet for over a year. Eleanor took the time to assess the symptoms of my ill-health and explore likely causes - including both dietary as well as wider lifestyle factors. Her expertise surrounding gut health gave me a much greater understanding of my condition and she offered clear nutritional advice and recommendations which allowed me to take the necessary steps to improve my health." Tom, Chiswick
"After many years of trying to get pregnant, we began IVF treatment in 2014. Working with Eleanor on our nutrition assured us that we were doing everything we could. The advice was easy to understand. We feel that following Eleanor’s guidance has significantly contributed to Louise being 13 weeks pregnant." Steve & Louise, Woking
” I can not recommend Eleanor highly enough. After suffering with low thyroid, and continually having to increase my synthetic thyroid hormone replacement medication, Eleanor identified the condition as autoimmune thyroiditis – Hashimotos. A plan was put together to manage the underlying autoimmunity and after 6 months, re-testing my thyroid antibodies, they were back down registering in the normal range, which was confirmed by my GP. My results have been remarkable.” Darren, London
"What impressed me most about Eleanor was excellent practical advice on daily dietary requirements to help me rid myself of belching and bloating – it worked a treat after 3 weeks. Highly qualified, scientific, a pleasure to consult with. Can see after work in Acton also, a big handy plus for me. Recommended, even if it’s just a nutritional MOT. Feel a whole lot better!" Pete, West London
