One-on-one nutritional therapy

Where I can help – and the complexity of being an individual

One-on-one nutritional therapy works well in cases where an individualised programme based on up-to-date scientific evidence is needed. Maybe you have tried other eating plans, or the advice you have gathered elsewhere is too generalised to make a difference. We are all biochemically different. Our nutritional needs and responses vary widely depending on  age, size, genetics and individual biochemistry. See my recent article on web site on why the average diet doesn’t fit the unique you

How nutritional therapy works

Nutritional therapy, as the name suggests, is a therapy. It is highly-personalised and we adapt your diet to your physiology, genes, and lifestyle.  You will be given practical and emotional support on your  journey. The aim is to get you to your health goals, and equip you with the skills and new habits to maintain your health independently for the long term.

 Step 1: I will start by asking you to complete a health questionnaire and fill out a three-day food diary. During your first consultation we will review this.  I will look at your diet and lifestyle and make a couple of basic recommendations to start working on straight away.  If needed, I may make recommendations for lab tests, appropriate to your health issues.

Tests look at a range of factors from nutritional status, to food sensitivities, stress hormone levels to gut inflammation and immunity, to genes, and the results may inform dietary and supplement recommendations.

Step 2:  I plan targeted dietary interventions to improve your health based on case history, and if used, lab results too. I may also recommend specific supplements at professional grades to kick-start your recovery.

Step 3: Follow-up consultations are scheduled to monitor progress. I will roll out further dietary changes at our meetings.

Lucy (47), designer: “Jeannette is experienced, informed, articulate and good to work with. But more important from a patient’s point of view than any accolade, is surely a good result. I have gone from taking daily pain killers for Rheumatoid Arthritis to none at all. Through careful, personal and realistic dietary changes, the pain associated with this condition has gone for me. I am more and more convinced of the power of tailoring what we eat to improve all aspects of our health. I would recommend Jeanette wholeheartedly.”
