About me

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 chronic illness and pain. In my clinic I see men and women of all ages with a whole range of health concerns.

Energy and Vitality

The body can reach a state of fatigue via a number of different routes. For some people this is a 'slow onset' over many years and for others may happen quite suddenly, maybe following a viral infection. Common symptoms include fatigue that is not alleviated by sleep, low energy, low immunity and discomfort throughout the body.

Cleansing the body of Toxins
Toxins originating in the gut are free to circulate the bloodstream and cause inflammatory responses elsewhere within the body. I work with clients to try and identify the root cause of their symptoms.

If the body's primary routes of elimination are not working optimally, I will work with clients to help promote detoxification and optimise these elimination pathways.

Healthy Digestion
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.

Hormonal Health
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?

With this understanding in place, 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 and the use of food state nutritional supplements when required. 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.

Areas of nutrition I deal with


* If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have one of the medical conditions starred above, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.

Fees

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 jane@lifeforcenutrition.co.uk so that we can arrange an appointment.

Full 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 a revised approach to food and eating, lifestyle recommendations and a supplement regime if this is appropriate to your needs.

Cost: £65

Follow up consultation – 45 minutes:

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 to advance your therapy. The frequency and number of follow up sessions will depend on your individual circumstances.

Cost: £45


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.

What some of my happy clients have to say

“Jane was very kind, approachable and knowledgeable. Her assessment was thorough, and I felt listened to throughout. The advice she gave me was simple and easy to action. I am already feeling the effects of the small changes I have made in my diet, my mood has improved and I have more energy during the day – I’ve even managed to persuade my partner to make some positive changes in his diet. I can’t recommend Jane highly enough, if you think (or know) you need to make some changes in your diet give her a call……you won’t regret it.”?

A. W. Basingstoke. (Age 52).

A. P. Fleet (Age 61).

“When I met Jane, I was feeling low on energy, suffering with my digestion and my skin had flared up. Jane has a very gentle and understanding approach and does not force anything on you. She truly understands how the body is connected and what it needs to function properly. Jane makes suggestions on what she feels you need to do and takes the time to discuss. I thoroughly recommend Jane as I now feel so much better, what a way to start a new year! Thank you Jane.”?

S. S. Farnborough (Age 40).

“Within a few weeks of starting a change in diet, my symptoms eased, and my energy levels improved. With support and guidance from Jane I'm now much stronger, back at work and managed my healthiest winter in over 18 years! I’ve even found ways of enjoying cake without it being unhealthy! I couldn't have done it without her, so thank you!”?

L. J. Basingstoke (Age 28).


“Jane is extremely good at drawing diagrams and explaining the science behind things, as well as being incredibly easy to talk to. Jane manages to be very professional, lovely, friendly, patient, and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone wanting to change the way they think about food, and themselves.”

C. M. Basingstoke (Age 40).

“Jane explained the problem areas to me in a clear, understandable manner, drew up a personal nutrition plan for me and motivated me to make the necessary changes in my lifestyle. I noticed a positive effect with 2 days and since then have seen a consistent ongoing improvement in not only my digestion but also energy levels and recovery time following exercise. I am very grateful for Jane’s help and cannot recommend her highly enough.”

G. S. Eweshot (Age 40).

C. T. Farnborough (Age 48).

“Jane was very encouraging and generous with her time, professional and provided a lot of helpful information. I am now following Jane’s advice and looking forward to improved health. I am now quite excited to try these new more nutritious products and improve my health. I would fully recommend Jane and her services.”

K. J. Basingstoke (Age 50).


“I have recently visited Jane after feeling run down for a number of months after having 2 small kids. I can’t talk about results yet as it’s been only a couple of days since I have seen Jane, but her approach is fantastic. “She starts by finding out what your goals are, then finds out as much as possible about your personal history and spends great amount of time explaining things and coming up with recommendations that won’t break the bank. I am hoping that with her help I will be back to my bouncy-self in no time. I would highly recommend Jane to anyone who wants to find a natural solution to their health problems.”

A. G-S. Basingstoke (Age 36).

"I have taken advice from Jane on several matters and she has always been able to help; she is fantastically knowledgeable, and her advice is pragmatic, sensible and easy to follow. Jane doesn’t judge whether what you do is right or wrong, she just helps you identify better ways to look after your health with a sensible eating plan. She also encouraged me to make changes that have improved the quality of my sleep. It was much easier than I thought it was going to be!"?

S. S. Farnborough (Age 41).

“I first consulted Jane as I was worried about what I was eating, my weight and nutrition as I am getting a bit older….. We had a lovely conversation which covered topics I expected to chat about and others I didn’t. Jane certainly provides a holistic approach! We came up with a plan – and what I found really great was that she kept in touch for the next 6 weeks to make sure that I was OK with keeping to the plan. Further recommendations were made too. The result is that I have a better regime, have lost a bit of weight and I feel so much better. Thanks Jane.”

A. D. Hartley Wintney (Age 55).
