Keeley Nicholas MSc (Nutritional Therapy). mBANT. rCNHC. BDS. MFGDP(UK).
Hi, I'm Keeley. I'm a registered Nutritional Therapist practising from my nutrition clinic two days per week, based in a small village between Droitwich and Worcester.
I support my clients on a one to one basis, so that advice may be personalised, focusing on individual nutritional requirements, and incorporating lifestyle changes to optimise health and wellbeing. Bespoke nutritional and lifestyle recommendations are created at each appointment, which are supported by current evidence-based science.
I have the benefit of extensive medical training, as I am also a practising Dental Surgeon - but don't let that put you off! I have an understanding of many medical conditions and medications, and I am comfortable communicating with medical professionals to ensure you receive the all round support you require.
What to expect
In my nutrition practice functional medicine principles are utilised to ensure that root causes of signs, symptoms and imbalances are identified and addressed, rather than 'putting a sticking plaster' over the problem. I offer functional testing, and can also discuss tests that might be available to you through your GP practice, in order to obtain clarity in certain situations. I also can recommend supplements, which may aid your journey to optimal health.
Initially a consultation appointment will identify the concerns you have and what you are hoping to achieve. Focusing on you, and with your input, a personalised protocol will be created, the aim of which is to to rebalance bodily systems and correct nutritional deficiencies. Lifestyle factors such as lack of relaxation time, too much or too little exercise, lack of connection with others may also be addressed, as their impact on health is important.
Many factors can impact on ill health. If the body is not provided with the raw ingredients to function, or those raw ingredients are not absorbed from the gut to the body, or the wrong type of raw ingredients are provided health will slowly deteriorate.
