About me

I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist offering professional nutritional and lifestyle advice and support. Based in Truro, Cornwall for face-to-face consultations in a professional clinic environment with online consultations available to provide flexibility and ease of access to all services.  Aside from self-referrals, referrals are always welcome from GPs and other medical or complementary therapy practitioners.

The aim of Foreshore Nutrition is to share knowledge, provide support and empower individuals to make positive and sustainable changes towards long-term optimal health and wellbeing. This is achieved using current and robust scientific evidence and research in the field of nutrition following a functional medicine approach. Our bodies need the right balance of nutrients to function well and sometimes our individual needs are not met which may be a factor leading to health issues.

I work with clients to assess and identify individual potential nutritional imbalances to understand how these may be contributing to symptoms and health issues. A wide range of functional tests and exclusive practitioner access to professional supplements are available to target therapy to suit the client’s specific needs, allowing a tailored rather than a generic ‘one size fits all’ programme.

I work with clients who are seeking support with a variety of symptoms through to chronic health issues,  including advice on healthy eating, weight loss and lifestyle, as well as support through particular life stages.

Foreshore Nutrition services range from a basic dietary analysis through to personalised consultation packages, meal planning and group workshops/talks upon request.

Training, qualifications & experience

Following nearly 30 years working in the NHS and private sector, Melanie embraced a career change and undertook four years of study at the world-renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, qualifying with a Distinction in 2020.

Melanie has supported clients with many varying health issues and is the founder of Foreshore Nutrition. Whilst having a particular interest in gut health and the microbiome, Melanie will also support clients with a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.

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.
