About me

Hi! I’m Nicola, a BANT registered nutritional therapist based in the UK. 

 

I specialise in nutrition for thyroid health,  brain health, and gut health, using a functional medicine approach. 

 

I live in the Devonshire countryside with my husband and two Jack Russell's. 

 

I enjoy a slower pace of life that is filled with time spent in nature, wholesome local produce, and relaxing walks. It does wonders for my health. 

 

Also, I love food!

My autoimmunity story

 

I have lived with Hashimoto's disease and vitiligo since 2013. I felt constantly fatigued, dizzy, anxious, unable to concentrate and generally unwell with frequent migraines for years, but my doctor insisted my blood work was fine. I tried the keto diet, fasting, and HIIT training while unjustifiably putting on weight. 

 

Everything changed once I saw a BANT registered nutritional therapist and learned what my body was asking for. 

 

I have put my own Hashimoto’s into remission through diet and lifestyle changes and I no longer need any thyroid medication. 

 

Brain health is a constant work in progress, especially as I hit perimenopause and I'm so grateful to have nutritional therapy to fall back on when I need it- I want that for you too. 

Once I realised the power that nutrition and lifestyle can have on our health, I knew becoming a BANT registered nutritional therapy practitioner was my calling. So I trained to become a registered functional medicine nutritional therapy practitioner myself and have never looked back!
