Nutritional Therapy utilises the latest evidence- based research on Nutrition and the Functional Medicine framework, which analyses the underlying causes of your symptoms and recognises that your body's systems work in synergy rather than isolation. Each person is unique and and so no two nutritional approaches will be the same.
Nutritional Therapy aims to support you alongside other health care providers to provide you with comprehensive and rounded approach to managing your health.
Understanding the importance of nutrition is not only important for yourself but the whole family. Knowing some simple swaps and tips can make a big difference to managing the whole families nutrition, no matter what stage of life you and your children are at. I bring my clinical experience in family nutrition to help you and your family make simple changes for a healthier future.
No one plan fits when it comes to weight management. I am a firm believer that diets do not work. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you need to make permanent lifestyle changes, altering what you put in your body and when. Eating 'healthily' doesn't necessarily mean you are eating the right foods for your body. I will explore your individual circumstances and tailor a plan specific to you.
Whether you are training for a marathon, or a professional athlete who wants to perform at optimal best, I will support you. Fitness is personal and diet is key. I will perform a detailed analysis and work with you to help you achieve maximal results.
Billions of bacteria live in your digestive tract and play an important role in your health. A specific diet can improve the health of your gut, preventing and treating conditions associated with autoimmune diseases, skin conditions & allergies.
People with chronic fatigue syndrome may have imbalances in their gut bacteria. For many whose symptoms are not relieved by rest and sleep, reshaping their diet is an effective way of improving their condition.
The Thyroid gland is a regulator that controls the rate of our metabolism. Alterations to the thyroid can present as changes in metabolism, heart rate, digestion, energy, appetite, hair & nails, sleep and mood. All these symptoms can be signs that the thyroid is over or under producing sufficient hormones.
There are many ways of supporting the thyroid through diet and natural remedies, and I will almost always recommend a full Thyroid panel test.
Skin conditions such as eczema are generally linked to a gut imbalance or histamine intolerance, which stimulates an over reactive immune system. Working on the root cause such as gut health can dramatically reduce these symptoms are relieve the stress caused through the skin.
Allergies such as hay fever are usually a sign that the immune system is over stimulated. I work on boosting the immune system with specific nutrients and target the root cause, relieving the stress through the allergy response.
Hormones are your bodies messengers and an imbalance can have profound effects on your mental, physical and emotional health. A nutritious diet and other healthy lifestyle behaviours may help improve your hormonal health as well as having positive effects on natural fertility.
"After my initial chat with Harriett, she suggested that she did a diet diary analysis on my current diet, and asked me to put together a diary of everything I consumed over a week, and make a note of my mood and energy levels. Harriett then gave me an in-depth analysis, listing areas of improvements (and explaining why) with great suggestions on how to improve my nutrition by making some simple changes. She also suggested product and lifestyle reccomendations, which have been really helpful. Harriett is very easy to talk to, a very positive outlook and a joy to work with" Charlotte, Bristol
Functional testing removes the common guess work and let's me understand exactly how your body is functioning, while highlighting underlying causes of symptoms. Testing will provide a snap shot of the current moment. I will not use this to diagnose, Instead this is used as a baseline to rule out various illnesses and measure improvements as you progress throughout your nutritional journey. Tests are completed by professionally recognised laboratories based in the UK, using samples of either a clients saliva, blood, urine or stool.
Tests cover areas such as:
