Linda Sims Dip CNM, MBANT, CNHC
I am a Bristol based Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist. My aim is to help you achieve your health goals and peak performance as well as supporting your body towards maintaining health. I am passionate about food and love creating delicious healthy recipes that support well being.
Making changes to your diet and lifestyle can have a big impact on your health, giving your body the right fuel can help promote its natural healing abilities. My role is to help you take control of your own health and wellbeing whether you simply want to improve your diet, suffer from a chronic condition or need a personal weight management plan and advice.
One to one consultations are designed to evaluate your diet, discuss past and current health in detail, review family history and identify any possible nutritional imbalances and underlying issues that can contribute to presenting symptoms. Working together with clients, I take into account their individual needs to create a personal nutritional plan and if needed a supplement plan. I offer ongoing support via follow up consultations and emails.
Why not contact me via phone for a free 15 minute consultation or email for further information to discuss your needs. You can also visit my website for more information.
