Lucy trained at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London. She has a degree in Biochemistry with Chemistry and is also a trained cook.
Lucy’s recommendations are evidence based and underpinned by scientific research. However, not everything can be studied in a clinical trial, which is where Lucy’s clinical and life/personal experiences are used to back up recommendations.
Lucy is passionate about encouraging people to prepare and cook real food to create healthy meals. Lucy works primarily with specific and personalised dietary changes, but it is often beneficial to use nutritional supplements and lifestyle suggestions.
Lucy is registered with BANT (British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) and with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council) and so is bound by a strict code of ethics and conduct. Lucy has just completed two years of additional training at The Institute for Optimum Nutrition and regularly attends seminars to enhance and keep her knowledge up to date.
About Nutritional Therapy:
Nutritional therapy uses dietary changes along with supplements and lifestyle advice to enhance health. This may be for a specific health concern, or for those looking to support their general wellbeing.
Nutritional therapists work by assessing and identifying potential nutritional imbalances.
Understanding and then explaining to an individual how these imbalances may be impacting on their systems and symptoms is a key part of the nutritional therapy process.
A specific and personalised nutritional protocol is agreed with the client to readdress the imbalances and to bring about positive health changes. Demands of daily life are very much taken into consideration so that the recommendations are realistic and achievable.
