Liz Quinn MSc, DipION, MBANT, CNHC
As a registered Nutritional Therapist I believe passionately that the food you eat and the way you live can have dramatic effects on your health. My approach is the help you make the right choices in such a way that they become part of your everyday life. I offer private consultations, food intolerance and genetic testing and give regular talks.
I have always loved good, fresh food and as I grew up I became more and more aware of how much better I felt when I ate well to the times when I ate a lot of processed foods and little fresh food. It was when I had my own children that I decided to take this interest further. There were so many conflicting messages regarding what you should and shouldn't eat so I embarked on 4 years of study to become a Nutritional Therapist so I would be able to make informed choices for myself and my family, and now want to pass that information and support onto others.
I believe strongly that there is no point in being told to make radical changes to your diet that you just won't stick to. Instead I work with my clients to put together a programme of changes that are possible and can become part of their everyday life. We then develop these changes over the months to help achieve their ultimate goal. It is really exciting and rewarding for both parties to see what a difference just a few changes can make to someone's well being.
I also carry out food intolerance testing, genetic testing and other functional tests such as stool analysis. These tests can really help us target the specific issue and correct any imbalances that may be highlighted by the test. Genetic testing is a really exciting area at the moment. I only work with testing companies who provide information on genes where you can influence their expression through diet.
Prior to an initial consultation you will be asked to complete a questionnaire and a 3-day food and lifestyle diary. This information and that gained during our initial consultation will enable me to identify potential imbalances within the body for which we can develop a programme to try to correct. The advice given will be based on you as an individual and will be targeted to your specific areas of concern. Any recommendations made will be supported by up-to-date scientific research.

Nutritional therapy is about finding the best possible diet and lifestyle that allows you to be as healthy as possible.
Nutritional therapists apply the Functional Medicine Model, which considers an individual's biochemical makeup, lifestyle and environment to develop a safe, effective and personalised plan to help you achieve optimum wellness or support your recovery from poor health.
Rather than looking at one are of concern we look at how your body as a whole is functioning to find the root cause of your issues and then look to promote balance in your body systems.
It does not mean you have to cut out all the foods you enjoy. Instead you work with your nutritional therapist to find simple, practical and realistic changes that can become a way of life and bring your body back in balance, helping you achieve your health goals. Recommendations made will be personalised to support you and your life.
Registered Nutritional Therapists are not able to diagnose but we can provide support alongside conventional medicine to help promote balance within your body systems. We will always highlight any signs or symptoms that we feel you should discuss with your doctor.
