Samantha Varriale, The Energy Nutritionist, BA Hons (Oxon), DipION, mBANT, rCNHC
Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Perhaps you're relying on caffeine or sugar to get you through the day and counting the hours before you can collapse into bed? Or maybe you've been told everything is normal but you know your energy is nowhere near where it should be.
Hi, I'm Sam, and I help tired people improve their energy, increase their vitality and reclaim their lives. With my personal journey of Hashimoto's disease and post-viral ME, I understand what you're going through and know exactly how you feel, and I help people just like you.
Fatigue can have many underlying causes and contributory factors, including poor diet and sleep, nutritional deficiencies and hormone imbalances. As well as being tired, many of the people I work with are also struggling with their weight. My approach involves considering all the potential causes of YOUR fatigue and addressing them with personalised, evidence-based dietary and lifestyle recommendations.

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.
What some of my clients say:
"I contacted Sam as I’d been suffering with debilitating fatigue and pain for 4 years following a virus. I had been improving slowly but flare-ups left me housebound. After following Sam's advice, both the pain and fatigue are much improved.” Janette, Feb21.
"Sam is patient, interested and educated making for a very rounded approach. I am now making progress and feel supported to work at a pace which works for me. My diet was already quite good but I feel I have more information on important foods to include for my own specific issues and can feel the benefit of this." Amy, Oct20.
"I had my first appointment last Thursday and after following the recommendations for the last 7 days, I have already noticed some positive changes - I'm managing to get up before midday for the first time in months, I am not flagging so much by mid afternoon, I have lost over 1lb in weight and 1inch off my waist measurement even though I seem to be eating more, my restless legs and leg pains which have plagued me every night for months have reduced in intensity and my brain fog is not so bad. I know this is early days, but WOW, this is so encouraging!" Sheryl, Sep20.
