Lynn is a registered practitioner of Clinical Nutrition; Qualified Lecturer, Nutrigenomics Counsellor and Full-On Foodie!!
Her own chronic health experiences with CVD and consequent life-changing achievements after a heart attack gave her the zeal to study a degree in Nutritional Medicine.
Her passion is to educate people, using the latest scientific research, on how diet and lifestyle hold the key to their optimal health and wellbeing.
"By guiding and supporting individuals through their personal nutritional programme, I help empower them, as I did myself, to achieve and maintain optimal health."
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.
Lynn offers private one-to-one consultations. 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.

Nutrigenomics is the study of how dietary factors influence gene expression and subsequently our health.
Diversity in our individual genetic make-up means that we all respond differently to various lifestyle interventions such as diet, physical activity, environmental exposures etc. This is because we all have variations in our genes known as Single Nucleic Polymorphisms, or SNPs for short. Nutrients from the foods we eat can interact with genes to help 'switch on' the positive effects and 'turn off' those that can have a negative impact on our health.
Lynn offers a range of packages including DNA and metabolic testing; analysis of the individual's genetic variations and the production of a personalised, comprehensive dietary and lifestyle plan for life that can significantly reduce the risk of future chronic disease and help maintain lifelong optimal health.

As a qualified lecturer, Lynn runs a series of one-day masterclasses on various health topics throughout the year in Malvern, Worcestershire but she is happy to consider other venues if approached.
Each masterclass takes a Functional Medicine approach, using the latest scientific evidence to examine the underlying causes of ill-health and subsequently, the dietary and lifestyle changes that can be made to help each individual reach their personal health goals and reduce the risk of chronic disease.
A comprehensive take-home toolkit is provided at every masterclass
A healthy three-course lunch and all refreshments are included

Around 19 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 - 19 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
