Hello, my name is Sara Thackeray, I am a registered Nutritional Therapist based in Bognor and Chichester, West Sussex, BN18 0SD. I offer in-depth nutrition consultations for a variety of different health concerns, health improvement or weight management.
I am experienced in treating many different health conditions. I have a particular interest in chronic health issues such as fatigue (adrenal fatigue, low energy), gut problems, and weight loss. I personally recovered from dry eyes by healing my body with nutrition and detoxification.
I graduated from the prestigious College of Naturopathic Medicine where I spent 3 years training at both the London and Brighton Colleges. I studied one year of bio medicine and two years nutritional therapy including over 200 hours of clinical consultations. I am a full member of the Naturopathic Nutrition Association (NNA). The NNA is the professional association for nutritional therapists who practice in accordance with national occupational standards and naturopathic principles.
I have also trained in functional testing including DNA testing, Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) for mineral levels and toxic metals, food intolerance testing, stool testing, thyroid panels and more. I regularly attend training and seminar days to further my knowledge.

I work with clients locally and worldwide with complex health issues.
The initial consultation lasts one and a half hours. During the consultation, I will go through your health history and current symptoms. I will give you a suitable supplement plan and talk about ways diet and supplements can support your health issues. If necessary, I will also offer functional tests to identify the root cause of your health issue. After the consultation, I will email you a personalised diet plan. If you have any questions I offer free phone calls up to 10 minutes to see how nutrition can benefit you. The follow-up will be booked for approximately 4 to 6 weeks depending on your needs.
Follow-up appointments last one hour. It is recommended to have at least one follow-up appointment so I can monitor your progress and make any changes to the diet and supplement plan as necessary.

''Sarah was recommended to me by a mutual friend. I had been suffering
for a number of year of extreme fatigue after a hysterectomy and
chemotherapy. Since being under Sarah care and advise I am feeling
much better in myself although there's still a long way to full
recovery but Im sure recovery is possible as great improvement have
occurred since being guided by sarahs professional advise.''
”I came to Sara after suffering with moderate to severe dry eyes for 10 years (I was first diagnosed at age 21). After a comprehensive intake and hair mineral testing, Sara developed a specific protocol for me including diet, supplements, and detoxification measures. What I most appreciate about Sara is that she checks in with me every month and adapts my treatment based on what I’m experiencing. She is also willing to troubleshoot problems and answer all of my questions in a timely manner. Sara is very knowledgeable and often speaks from her own experience with detox and healing, which gives her even more credibility and allows her to fully relate to her clients. After a few months of working together my eyes are feeling about 10% better, which is really wonderful because I was in constant discomfort with burning and extreme dryness when we started. I’m so excited to keep working together on this healing journey!''
''I approached Sara for help with BHP and found her to be professional and knowledgeable. She advised me on my diet and supplements which contains various nutrients and herbs that have been shown to benefit the prostate. We also worked on my gut, which she said was leaky and inflamed. I used to be a very heavy meat eater, and Sara pointed out that eating a lot of red meat might be causing to much protein in the urine which could be irritating my prostate. My symptoms of frequent urination, and pain have much improved. I am also sleeping much better thanks to several minerals that I believe I was deficient in. I have had sleep issues for 10 years, and this is the only thing that has helped after the sleeping pills stopped working! I’m now getting 7 hours sleep per night.
“Sara is a very knowledgeable and thorough Nutritional Therapist. The diet and lifestyle advice she gave me has been beneficial to my health. After implementing her nutritional plan I no longer suffer with fatigue, I am sleeping much better and my bloating is much reduced.”
”I would recommend consulting Sara to anyone. I was a particularly tough case since I seemed to do everything right to prevent my skin outbreaks. However, Sara went to work and came up with some very useful suggestions that did the trick.”

''I did the Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis. It was part of my program through Sara. I am on several different supplements to balance out my mineral levels. My skin keeps getting clearer and the past 3 days now (knock on wood) I have noticed significant improvement in my eyes! Feeling pretty positive and hopeful that this is just the beginning! You will like working with Sara. She is a wealth of Knowledge!''.
