About me

Do you want to improve your mood, memory and energy levels? Are you looking to optimize your immune system and general health, so that you age in the best way possible? If so, message me now; and I'll be in touch 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) and the 2nd book was out January 2020 (Case Studies in Personalised Nutrition). See here for more on the books: https://www.lorrainenicollenutrition.co.uk/books-nutrition.php

I received Highly Commended in the CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) Awards 2013 for outstanding contribution to the CAM Community.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
