About me

Hi, I’m Elena, a Registered Nutritional Therapist. I’m focused on taking your health to the next level through personalised nutrition & lifestyle programme.

In my practice – Gut Philosophy - I use genetic testing, functional testing (stool, microbiome, comprehensive hormones), wearable data devices to monitor your progress and professional supplementation range.

I support many of my clients with gut health and I am working with a wide range of health concerns, all of which were shown to have a strong link to gut health:

  • Gut related symptoms
  • Food allergies and sensitivities
  • Skin issues
  • Weight management
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Hypothyroidism and other thyroid issues
  • Female hormonal imbalances (PMS)
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Mental health and mood disorders

If you have a health condition, specific goal or simply want to improve your overall nutrition, I’m offering a complimentary 15 min discovery call. You’ll have an opportunity to discover how I work and discuss your health concerns.

Nutrition topics

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
