Natasha Achilleos BA(Hons), Dip(NT), Dip(NAT) (NaturoHealthNutrition)
NaturoHealthNutrition was founded by Natasha Achilleos a fully accredited and registered Nutritional Therapist and Naturopath who is now practicing in the North Somerset area after relocating from and running a successful private practice in London for the last 3 years.
The focus of my practice is aimed at supporting clients with gastrointestinal symptoms or diagnosis (spasmodic bowel, small intestinal bacteria overgrowth, IBD, reflux, gastritis, irregular bowel transit, h pylori), hormonal imbalances (symptoms and transition, hormonal conditions (women and men) and stubborn weight gain), stress management and its associated symptoms (fatigue, loss of resilience, endocrine and hormonal imbalance, weight gain, mood swings, loss of energy, 'tired and wired') which can set the stage for suppressed immunity, issues with digestion and absorption, hormonal symptoms and issues, cardiovascular issues, metabolic disruption and autoimmunity.
Motivating clients to feel empowered by giving them the tools to enable change is the philosophy of my naturopathic and nutrition practice. I love what I do and I am passionate about making a difference in people's lives.
I focus on lifestyle, whole nutrition and therapeutics to restore the body back to a more balanced state and equilibrium. Stress plays a role in the manifestation of many health complaints and this will likely form part of your treatment plan. More information about the areas I support and the role of stress in pathology can be found on my website under 'Health Matters' and my blog.
If you are ready to take that first step you can begin by contacting me for a free consultation (drop me an email) to see whether we are a good fit and to discuss your symptoms and what you would like to get out of our time together. I generally recommend a minimum of 3 months and possible diagnostic testing i.e. a stool test or an hormone DUTCH test to uncover markers and get to the root of your symptoms. If you wish to book in a general health check then one or two consultations is usually sufficient with possible six monthly check ins to tweak or discuss particular areas of support.
During our time together, we will discuss your food intake, cravings, habits, medical health history, family health history, physical activity, occupation, lifestyle and other factors which may influence our emotional and psychological well being, to build an individualized plan. I also offer meal planning which are available as part of your plan or through my online services.
Links and information about the diagnostic testing I use in my clinic can be found in my testing section and can also be ordered through my online services.

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.
Please see my website for details of my consultations and packages, general wellness online program and diagnostic testing.
Payment is made in advance for consultations and packages. Fees for laboratory tests are either paid directly to the laboratory or through me.
I am registered with Genova Diagnostics, Biolab and Regenerus Labs. This allows me to research and obtain the most suitable and cost effective tests to uncover clues about your health if they are applicable to your treatment plan.
I update my education and professional development by attending courses, workshops, seminars, online webinars and subscriptions to nutrition journals and scientific publications.
