Susan Woodward (Replenish Nutrition), Dip CNM mBANT rCNHC
Welcome to Replenish Nutrition.
I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist. My passion for nutrition developed after my own health declined and left me struggling for many years with a wide range of debilitating symptoms that traditional medicine was unable to help me with. Nutrition and Lifestyle medicine changed my life and now I am committed to empowering others to change theirs.
> Have multiple symptoms but get told there is nothing wrong with you?
> Feel run down or get frequent colds?
> Suffer with energy crashes, mood swings or food cravings?
> Feel overwhelmed by things that never used to bother you?
> Struggle to achieve or maintain your ideal weight?
> Have trouble sleeping or wake feeling unrefreshed?
> Want to support your health naturally?
> Want to get your life back?
Everything we eat is an opportunity to nourish and replenish our body. However, those of us following a typical western diet are often making food choices that burden and stress our bodies. Correcting our eating habits, identifying nutritional imbalances and making the right food choices now can restore health and set you on the right path for a healthy future.
I work alongside my clients to create personalised Nutrition and Lifestyle Plans that reflect their specific symptoms and unique circumstances and I support them in reaching their health goals.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied and completed 3 years of training at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
I trained in the principals of Functional Medicine, a science based approach to health and healing that looks at the body as a whole and assesses the underlying causes of symptoms. Rather than look at a symptom in isolation, I seek to support the underlying imbalances and address the root cause.
I am a full member of the BANT (the professional body for nutritional therapists) and I am CNHC accredited (the regulatory body for complementary health).
I am a passionate educator and give regular talks to my local Diabetes UK Support Group.
I have completed a FHT accreditation in ME, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Recovery with The Chrysalis Effect, an organisation dedicated to supporting people with chronic exhaustive conditions.
I passionately believe in food as medicine as it was an integral part of my own healing journey when my health was hijacked by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 10 years ago.

I have a series of wellness packages designed specifically to help keep clients on track. Nutritional Therapy requires ongoing support and realistic timeframes within which to monitor and reach health goals. It's too easy to lose momentum with your health goals but having a series of diarised appointments will give you structure and help keep you focused. Wellness Packages offer additional benefits such as email support in between your consultations, access to additional services such as Supervised Shopping Visits and offer a more cost effective approach.
People often have questions they would like answered before they book a consultation and I am more than happy to do so.

Once an initial consultation is booked you will be sent a detailed Health Questionnaire and 3-day Food and Lifestyle diary which needs to be completed and returned in advance of your appointment.
