Do you want to improve your mood, memory and energy levels? Are you looking to optimize your health, so that you age in the best way possible? If so, call me now for a free 10 minute conversation on how best to proceed.
I am an experienced nutrition clinician, educator and author and I have been practicing nutritional therapy in London since 2003. I have an MSc in Nutrition and Chronic Disease (Distinction) and I focus on helping clients with healthy ageing. Many of my clients have complex, chronic conditions like auto-immune diseases, low bone density, gastro-intestinal disorders, pain (including in the head or in the musculo-skeletal system), stress-related conditions or severe fatigue. I also see clients who are in need of nutritional support through chemotherapy.
I use a 'Functional Medicine' approach to helping clients, which focuses on identifying problems with underlying body systems that may be contributing to signs and symptoms of ill-health and disease. (www.functionalmedicine.org).
I'm also a qualified university teacher and have taught on many nutrition and health-related degree programmes, including at the University of West London and Greenwich University. And I write and deliver seminars and lectures to healthcare practitioners who are keen to further their nutrition knowledge. (See the events tab of www.lorrainenicollenutrition.co.uk)
I provide nutrition advice to businesses as part of their employee welfare programmes; and I have co-authored 3 books, Biochemical Imbalances in Disease, The Functional Nutrition Cookbook and Eat To Get Younger. I am also the editor for the new book series Personalised Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine for Healthcare Practitioners. The first book in the series was published in 2018 (Mitochondria in Health and Disease.)
I received Highly Commended in the CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) Awards 2013 for outstanding contribution to the CAM Community.
