Lindi Jaff - LJ NUTRITION Dip NT, mBANT, rCNHC
Hello, I am Lindi, a registered Nutritional Therapist at LJ Nutrition working in North West London.
I am originally from South Africa and have been living in London for the past 15 years with my family. I am the proud mum of two gorgeous girls.
I love empowering busy parents to help them feed their families in a fun, creative and nutritious way and am passionate about picky eaters and the role us parents play in our kids journey and relationship with food. I love baking and cooking healthy alternatives for my family and love helping people to get results and feel their best, working from the inside out.
As a mum I also believe we need to feel our best and take care of ourselves in order to give the best we can to our kiddies. I support women with their own health and wellbeing and my main goal is to get to the root cause of your symptoms and look at the bigger picture.
I am passionate about supporting people through diet and lifestyle to reach your optimal wellbeing and help reduce the risk of disease. Every approach needs to be tailor-made to suit your individual needs and together we will devise the best possible plan and achievable goals for you.
Feel free to join my FREE facebook group Creative Health Tips for families where I offer free support around mealtime ideas, strategies around snacking and picky eating, tips, recipes, resources and discussion around all things nutrition for you and your family.

There are many different ways to work with me, and I aim to find the best way to work with you around your needs and lifestyle. I offer the flexibility of working face to face, over Skype or the phone. Initially we would always try to meet face to face if possible. To stay on track and to offer you ongoing support I prefer to work with you by offering packages which include the initial consultation as well as a few follow ups either face to face or weekly calls and email support to help you reach your goals.
The initial consultation with LJ Nutrition will last up to 75 minutes and will be based on an assessment of your previous medical and family history, your current health and lifestyle together with a detailed discussion about your health concerns and goals. During the consultation we will go through all the body systems in detail to establish any triggers or clues that may help me build the best possible plan for you. Prior to the consultation I will send you a short questionnaire as well as a food diary so I can review your case before we meet.
You will be asked about any medical conditions as well as any supplements or medications you have or are currently taking and the main health concerns you have.
Together we will talk about you health goals and if any functional or routine testing is needed as well as any lifestyle, food and supplementation changes.
Within 48 hours I will send you a detailed plan of all the recommendations with any recipes,meal ideas as well as how to order supplements if required.

"Lindi had been such a help to me. I have Crohns disease and before I started seeing Lindi I was getting lots of stomach pains and diarrhea but with Lindi's help I now get almost none.
Lindi is very kind and caring and so nice to work with. Lindi has given me lots of recipes so I've also started cooking and baking my own food for my diet and I really enjoy it. Thank you"
"Lindi, is a wonderful passionate nutritional therapist. Her approach is both friendly and relaxed. I found her to be clear and precise in her explanations regarding symptoms and causes, and she is extremely helpful with cooking and handy tips! Healthy food is a definite passion for her.
I made the recommended changes and felt the benefits really quickly. My quality of life has certainly improved. It is a pleasure to be her client. I would thoroughly encourage you to see how nutrition therapy can improve your wellbeing, you may be surprised ."
"After suffering with an underactive thyroid for 6 years, lack of energy and hair reduction I was referred to Lindi by my GP as my TSH levels were rising. I've just had a repeat of my blood tests done and amazingly my TSH and cholesterol levels have dropped significantly in just a few weeks thanks to her autoimmune protocol.I would like to thank Lindi for helping me through this challenging time."
"Thank you so much Lindi my kids loved your healthy cookery class today! The fussiest one came home and ate a red pepper for the first time - I'm speechless !
Highly recommend Lindi's courses."
"Lindi's advice and expertise to address my constant feelings of being tired and bloated has proved to be spot on. Her recommended adjustments to my diet were completely bespoke and effective. Lindi was highly consultative yet personable, and I was grateful for the phased approach whereby she could measure my progress and suggest further adjustments when necessary. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Can't enthuse about LJ Nutrition enough. My daughter loved her workshop this morning and the care and attention that Lindi gives is so impressive. She really knows her stuff and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. Well done Lindi and thanks for today."
