About me

Lara Boyd - Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioner - personalised nutrition and lifestyle coaching.  Online consultations available.

I work with people of all ages, in a variety of settings, who are ready to make guided changes to their daily diet and lifestyle, to achieve better health and wellbeing. Many have pre-existing conditions.  I will assess your diet, health and lifestyle to understand your personal nutritional needs and coach you over a period of time to provide education and solutions to enable you to meet your own changing nutritional needs.

Arrange a free 15-minute phone chat to discuss how personalised nutrition and lifestyle coaching can support you, your health and your goals - each step of the way.

Scientific testing can be undertaken to deliver a more targeted nutritional approach.  It can provide insight into how well body systems are functioning, identify any microbial disturbance and highlight any pre-clinical nutrient depletion which might be addressed through your diet.  Lara recommends tests from laboratories with Clinical Pathology Accreditation and you will have access to the full range of tests including a phlebotomy service in Edinburgh.

If it is appropriate to recommend supplements you will obtain a discount via the Natural Dispensary.

I also work with organisations and offer work-based clinics.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
