About Eleanor

Hello, my name is Eleanor, welcome to my Nutritional Therapy website.

I am a BSc., degree qualified Registered Nutritional Therapist. I first trained with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London, before completing the BSc in Nutritional Medicine at The University of West London. Both courses taught the Functional Medicine model, which looks to optimise health by putting in place what a healthy body needs to function well.

Functional Medicine is a model of healthcare that works particularly well to prevent chronic, non-communicable diseases, the sort that can manifest after many years indulging in poor diet or poor lifestyle choices.  With the right support, changing such lifestyle behaviours can sometimes be the single most effective therapy for an individual, yet these root causes of chronic disease are largely ignored, rarely investigated or even acknowledged.

The utility of dietary change lies in the power of NUTRIENTS and the understanding of what the body requires to function well, and how it uses them and literally depends on them. Feeding a body with calories that are empty or devoid of vital nutrients will eventually cause it to malfunction, like giving an engine the wrong fuel.

The vastly sophisticated arena of functional testing available now is also allowing practitioners to thoroughly investigate a person’s health and nutrient status and to signpost as yet undiagnosed health issues, that may be contributing to their symptoms.

After twelve years of clinical practice, I support a range of clients who are either referred by medical practitioners or come to me direct. I have a special interest in gut health, optimising digestion, supporting autoimmune conditions, gluten sensitivities and pre-conceptual health/fertility. I believe in a philosophy of shared education.  What I learn, I like to pass on.  Understanding generates empowerment, and is more likely to induce long-term behavioural change,  which in turn will bring about better health.
