If you’re interested in my nutrition advice but want to ask some more questions then this Frequently Asked Questions page should help!
Are you qualified?
Yes. I became interested in nutrition after my Crohn’s diagnosis in 2012. After 5 years of study, I finally qualified as a Nutritional Therapist in 2017. My diploma is regulated by the Federation of Nutritional Therapists and the IICT. I am also fully insured. While this is vital, I feel my real life experience is just as important. I have lived with a digestive disease, figuring out what I can eat and what I can’t since 2012 and manage my symptoms, fatigue, deficiencies and diet on a daily basis. I have written a book on the topic of IBD and been in featured in a variety of publications including The Mail On Sunday, The Guardian and Metro Online.
What if I can’t afford it?
I completely understand and I am very passionate about making information accessible to all. That’s why I offer lots of free blog posts, ebooks and have a few cheaper products- my book (which is under a fiver) and my flare up plan. On Fridays I offer free 15 minute slots to chat things through.
Do you have any examples of anyone who has used your nutrition services in the past?
Yep plenty- here are a few testimonals. I’d be more than happy to put you in touch with any of these clients for a quick chat…
Absolutely- that’s why personalised nutriton advice is so important.But there’s things that all of us have in common- we all need to try to maximise the amount of nutrients we can absorb, we all need to get a healthy balance of protein and fat and figure out foods that help us and foods that can make things worse. I believe the best way to do this is by working with you to analyse your food diary in detail and work with you to figure out a diet that’s right for you.
Do you offer programmes?
For all new people, I firstly offer an initial 60-minute consultation. I love to work with people long term but I use my first session to figure out if we are right for each other– to save you committing to something long-term without knowing what’s right for you and to ensure I can help you.
I thought IBD had nothing to do with diet?
Diet can certainly not cure IBD but working out your diet can definitely help with everything from fatigue to nutritional deficiencies. Some people find they can control the illness with diet alone but it is a continual progress and it’s always vital to keep in touch with your doctor. Despite this, everyone with a chronic illness should learn about nutriton and health- to ensure they can best support their body and immune system.
