Jane Pugh BSc (Hons). PhD., ADHNP, mNNA
Using a scientific approach to nutrition I help clients to identify the underlying causes of their health concerns. Symptoms tell us that one or more of the bodies systems is out of balance.
EVERY ONE OF US HAS A HEALTH STORY
…and we are tuned into the individual habits of our own bodies. Some of us have niggling symptoms, whilst others may be suffering with long-term ill health. In my clinic I see men and women with a whole range of health concerns.
Despite its complexity, the human body has a simple mandate. We are designed to take in food, break this down, absorb the nutrients for energy, growth and repair, and eliminate the waste products. If any part of this process is not working effectively, the health of other parts of the body may be compromised.
The endocrine system includes a system of glands that produce hormones: thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, pancreas, pituritary, pineal, hypothalamus, thymus, ovaries and testes. Hormones work in harmony to regulate a myriad of functions within the body. Imbalances in one organ can impact the overall balance of the hormonal system.
What are your symptoms telling us about the health of your underlying systems?
What is your body lacking and what does it need?
I give practical, hands-on advice to help you understand how to help restore and maintain your health. I focus on optimizing health with food and lifestyle. I take time to explain the the science behind my recommendations. I believe that if a person understands why their body reacts in a certain way, that they are better empowered in their health.

FREE introductory phone consultation
I offer an initial consultation by phone. This allows you to establish whether Nutritional Therapy is the right route for you with no obligation to make a booking. It also allows me to ensure that my skills and knowledge are suited to your needs. Please call me on 07881 915537 to have this introductory phone consultation.
If I cannot answer, please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as possible. Alternatively you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can arrange an appointment.
Initial consultation – 1.5 hours:
Having agreed your health objectives, I take a complete health history, discuss your concerns and look in detail at your current diet and lifestyle. I take time to explain the Nutritional Therapy approach and the importance of your commitment to this in achieving your health goals. I then work with you to agree a Nutritional Therapy Plan which includes dietary and lifestyle recommendations as appropriate to your health goals.
I offer an optional computer analysis of your 3-day food diary presented to you as a detailed report:
Cost: Additional £30. This can be included as part of the initial consultation or at a follow up consultation.
Follow up consultation – 60 or 90 minutes as required:
I recommend a follow up consultation 4-6 weeks after the initial consultation. This is used to assess the progress that you have made and any changes to your symptoms. We then adjust your Nutritional Therapy Plan. The frequency and number of follow up sessions will depend on your individual circumstances.
60 minutes: £50
90 minutes: £70
The number of follow up consultations will depend on your individual requirements. During our initial phone consultation I can give you an indication of how many you are likely to require.
