Good nutrition is vital for a healthy life and being aware of the many nutrients we eat every day is key to achieving good well-being. The current modern lifestyle is disruptive to our eating habits making our food choices often less nutritious and less beneficial for our bodies. Consequently making it harder to cope with demanding lifestyles. This becomes a vicious cycle from which it is difficult to emerge. It is further exacerbated by the conflicting information people receive daily .

What to expect from a Nutritionist consultation.
Food, not only can it increase your waist size, but it can alter your mood as well. We have all heard of the positive effects that eating chocolate can have (in moderation!), that’s because endorphins are released into the brain. However food can also have a bad reaction to your body, sometimes so mild that it will probably go unnoticed for years. However, if you book with our affordable nutritionist you could feel so much more alive and perform better within all walks of life.
A health professional with special training in nutrition can help with dietary choices. Nutritionists provide evidence-based information and guidance about the impacts of food and nutrition on health and well-being. A nutritionist could simply design a weight loss plan or create an eating plan around medical conditions. A nutritional therapist can also devise an eating plan to gain weight if required.
You don’t have to travel to Central London or Harley St, you can now book an online nutritionist consultation. The process is the same as if you were sitting in the Wellthy Clinic near Harley Street. You will be asked to complete dietary information, gene and hormone questionnaires before your nutrition consultation. This way our Nutritionist will have a detailed understanding about you to maximise your consultation time. You will need a computer or device with a camera and microphone. Our Nutritionist will send you a meeting link to access your private video call. After your consultation, you will receive a personalised nutrition plan and then a further 30min online nutritionist call to answer any questions you may have about your plan.
Your diet impacts greatly your health outcomes and ability to heal. The rise of diet-related diseases, obesity and malnutrition through unbalanced diets is a global problem. By speaking with a Nutritionist you can gain clarity for your individual needs and learn how best to manage your symptoms. Most commonly clients approach nutritionists for weight loss advice, to improve skin conditions or reducing menopause symptoms. All these can be achieved by addressing gut issues or hormonal imbalances through dietary changes and supplement intake. Also, our nutritionist can help with a variety of other conditions and the results are empowering.

One condition that affects half the population eventually is menopause. Did you know that the whole menopause cycle could last for 7 years? A consultation with our menopause nutritionist could help you discover what foods to avoid and what can help reduce your symptoms.
The simple answer is yes, the best example of this is eczema, which is often triggered by specific allergens. For many people, these will be allergens that come in contact with their skin, but in some cases, they can be specific foods. We can design an eczema diet plan based solely on your needs. Often certain foods can lead to other skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis and psoriasis. Psoriasis can be a debilitating condition and having a Psoriasis meal plan to help manage your symptoms could be beneficial.
Diabetes is a disorder characterised by an inability to properly transport and metabolise glucose. Diabetes UK estimates that 1 in 15 people in the UK have diabetes. It is estimated there are 4.7 million people in the UK diagnosed with Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is preventable and indeed curable. It is possible to manage diabetes type 2 with a healthy diet and regular physical activity. Book a consultation with our diabetes nutritionist.
Yes, the right nutritional eating plan can help with irritable bowel syndrome. Our advice is that diets which are high in processed foods that contain too much sugar, salt and trans-fats are not advised. Foods high in refined sugar make your blood sugar levels rise rapidly which can slow down your digestion. More information on how our IBS nutritionist in London can help you.
We pointed out at the beginning that food can alter your moods, and the answer is yes it can help. Eating the wrong foods can increase anxiety. Anxiety can cause difficulty concentrating, irritability and tense muscles. It can disrupt your sleeping patterns and difficulty overcoming worries. Any foods that will stimulate your fight or flight response are best to avoid eating. Poor gut health has been linked to anxiety so having the plan to proliferate good bacteria is important. Speak with our nutritionist for anxiety during a free 15 minute online session to find out how we can help.
Improving an individual’s diet requires more than just information provision, it requires consistent and long-term support to change and maintain new behaviours. Doctors do a fantastic job under different circumstances but nutrition consultations take time and specific training to gain the best results. Our nutritionist will provide you with a personalised nutrition plan that will help you reach your goals.
The Nutritionist provides clarity and a personalised nutritional plan based on your needs. The plan will focus mainly on food quality and nutrient density rather than on quantity and calorie measurement. We believe a well-balanced nutritional regime combined with a few lifestyle changes can support you through several physical symptoms.
