Good nutrition is vital for a healthy life and being aware of the many nutrients we eat every day is key to achieving good wellbeing. The current modern lifestyle is disruptive to our eating habits making our food choices often less nutritious and less beneficial for our body. 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 on a daily basis.

Food And The Impact It Can Have On Our Bodies
Food, not only can it increase your waist size, it can also 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 London you could feel so much more alive and perform better within all walks of life.
What Is A Nutritionist
A health professional with special training in nutrition who can help with dietary choices. Nutritionists provide evidence-based information and guidance about the impacts of food and nutrition on health and wellbeing. A nutritionist could simply design you 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 exactly 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 prior to 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.
Why do I need to Speak with a Nutritionist?
Your diet impacts greatly on 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, 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.
What Medical Conditions Can A Nutritionist Help With
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.
Can Diet Affect Skin Conditions
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, having a Psoriasis meal plan to help manage your own symptoms could be beneficial.
Diabetes And Nutrition
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.
Can A Nutritionist Help With IBS
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 London can help you.
Can A Nutritionist Help With Anxiety
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 actually 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 a plan to proliferate good bacteria is all important. Speak with our nutritionist for anxiety during a free 15 minute online session to find out how we can help.
Can a Doctor Help me with Nutrition Needs?
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.
What are the Benefits of Seeing a Nutritionist ?
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.
Is It Worth Seeing A Nutritionist ?
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver (Gandhi). We believe that making small nutrition and lifestyle changes can make a big difference to reduce your symptoms. If you experience fewer symptoms, you will feel better and therefore will have a better quality of life. Moreover, if you have tried medications and other therapies but are still struggling with symptoms then why not try a different approach. Have a look at our google reviews, yell and reviews page to see how we have helped others with similar conditions.
Why Can't I Just Do My Own Diet Plan ?
As a registered nutritional therapist I have seen many people who have tried this method. They skim read a few articles about hormonal health and weight loss, then think that's it. Nutritional therapy is a little more involved than using recipes you have read in books or found on the internet. If you create your own plan you are more likely to deviate from the plan. However, if you have a consultation with a health specialist who provides and supports you through a well structured personalised nutrition plan you are more likely to achieve better results. Follow up sessions every 4-6 weeks will be organised to encourage you along the way with the plan being reviewed and changed when appropriate.
It has been suggested a simple formula for losing weight is to burn more calories than you consume. Whilst that tactic can help for a healthy person with no remarkable medical history. In reality, it’s not that simple as there are multiple factors that need to be considered.
Are you stressed? Depressed? Do you have an eating disorder? Do you overeat? Are you dehydrated? Do you have difficulty sleeping? Do you have digestive issues? Do you have hypothyroidism? Cushing’s syndrome? Polycystic ovarian syndrome? Are you menopausal? Pregnant? Are you taking medications? All these factors and others can act as weight loss obstacles. Our naturopathic nutritional therapist would take these factors into consideration when creating a personalised nutritional plan. It could be that your nervous system, hormone regulation or digestion may first need support as part of a nutritional plan to achieve the best results.
Do Subscription Diets Work?
These types of diets that you see advertised everywhere are just designed for the masses. They do not cater for your personal requirements or take into consideration any underlying medical condition. If you are experiencing bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, reflux or stomach cramps this could be a sign of gut or absorption issues. If you don’t first resolve the cause of your problem then dieting will not give you the results you are wanting to achieve. Yes some people will lose weight short term but you may end up gaining weight afterwards through a yoyo effect. Speak to our CNHC registered nutritionist to devise your personal sustainable eating plan which will help you achieve the best results over the long term.
What to Expect in your First Consultation
Prior to your first session you will be asked to complete dietary, hormone and gene questionnaires. Our Nutritionist will then gain a deeper understanding of your presenting problems within your initial consultation after asking further questions. A specific detailed nutritional plan will be created for you to follow for 4-6 weeks. After that an online nutritionist follow up session will be organised. You can choose to have the session in person at Wellthy Clinic near Harley Street, or speak to our nutritionist online for sessions.
