Clinical Nutrition or Nutritional Therapy is an evidence-based, individual, holistic approach to healthcare, addressing the underlying causes of ill health rather than just treating the symptoms.
?The human body is made up of trillions of cells. Each individual cell is like a tiny machine, responsible for carrying out thousands of essential biochemical processes every day; all these tiny cells work in synergy to run the ‘big’ machine - YOU. For optimal health, performance and energy each cell requires a specific range of nutrients from the foods we eat; if we don’t provide the cells with these essential nutrients, our cells cannot perform to their full capacity and we will not experience our full health potential. Scientific evidence shows that nutritional imbalances can significantly contribute to the onset of disease.
To help assess your specific imbalances, in advance of your first consultation, you will be asked to complete 3 detailed health questionnaires and a food and lifestyle diary which include details of your medical history, symptoms, familial predispositions, diet and lifestyle. ?
During the consultation, using her knowledge and expertise based on the most current research evidence, Lynn will discuss your health issues and ensure you have an understanding of the underlying physiological and biochemical processes that may be impacting on your health.
She will devise a Nutritional Therapy programme according to your individual needs that includes a personal nutrition report along with supporting fact sheets, and recommended nutritional supplements as appropriate.
?Nutritional Therapy is a recognised complementary medicine that can be used on its own or alongside any other therapies.
?Lynn is happy to work with general practitioners or specialist consultants in the ongoing management of individual health conditions.

Around 18 years ago I was diagnosed with triple vessel CHD and discovered I had previously suffered a heart attack. Two years later I was in hospital again when attempts to widen my congested arteries with angioplasty and stents failed. I could not walk upstairs without experiencing severe chest pain and my cardiologist explained that CHD is progressive and the prognosis suggested I would require triple bypass surgery within the next 10 years.
Forced to take sick leave from my job as a lecturer and manager in further and higher education, I determined I would use the time to investigate means of improving my prognosis; I read everything I could get my hands on related to CHD and began to realise the impact the foods we eat can have on health and the progression of chronic disease. This was the turning point when I finally took responsibility for my own health; the changes I implemented to my dietary and lifestyle habits had such a profoundly positive effect, that a year later my cardiologist discharged me.
?My research into the effects of nutrition and health continued and began to expand until my interest was so great and I was so inspired by my own dramatic health improvements that I spent the following 6 years studying a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutritional Medicine with Thames Valley University, so that as a Nutritional Therapist I could support others in achieving their optimum health, and experience an improved quality of life as I had done.
?I’m living proof of how supportive to health Nutritional Therapy can be - 18 years on and not a scalpel in sight!
?Please note that Nutritional Therapy is not a replacement of orthodox medicine but is complementary to all other therapies, and supportive of holistic optimal health
