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.

I offer a FREE online consultation should you wish to discuss your requirements prior to booking a consultation- contact me via email. 

This first call will give you the opportunity to find if you want to work with me and if your nutritional needs align with my expertise. I strive to provide the best possible care, and if I think that you should see another specialist0 I would be happy to refer. That's why it is so important for me to offer this first call free of charge.
