Zara Syed MSc, BSc (Hons), DipION, mBANT, CNHC
Hi, I'm Zara, a registered Nutritional Therapist offering personalised nutrition advice at my clinics in London and Wimbledon village.
In a world where we are overwhelmed with information about what we should and shouldn’t be eating, one size does not fit all.
My scientific background has equipped me with a deep understanding of the interactions between biochemical mechanisms and the symptoms we experience. Beyond the quick fixes and faddy diets, I will help you gain a better understanding of the root cause of your symptoms and empower you to make informed and targeted changes to your diet and lifestyle. Recognising that we are all biochemically unique, I will advise manageable steps towards optimum health, through a programme that is tailored to you.
If you have a health condition, specific goal or simply want to improve your overall nutrition, please get in touch to arrange a complimentary call for the opportunity to discuss your health concerns, ask any questions you may have and find out how we can work together.

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.
