The Practical Nutritionist

The Practical Nutritionist – personal, and above all, practical nutritional advice and services to help you improve your health. I specialize in stress management, energy levels and mental alertness and, as a registered holistic nutritionist, I develop programs, individually-tailored to you, based on your health goals, physiology and  circumstances.

Food and drink impact stress, energy and alertness far more than you may realize and even small changes in what you eat can make a difference. However, we’re all different, so what’s right for you may not be right for the next person, particularly considering the pressures of modern day living.

That’s where The Practical Nutritionist comes in. At all times, my aim is to help you improve your health in ways that are realistic and sustainable for you over the long term. If this is the sort of approach you are looking for, check out my services and pricing or simply  get in touch and see how I can help you.
