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.
