Eat For Health

Looking to improve your health? Eat for health with science backed nutrition and the healthy eating doctor.

The old adage ‘we are what we eat’ has never been more important. With a wealth of contradictory information published about the latest ‘superfoods’, or what not to eat, how do you navigate a path to find what is best for you? Do you feel overwhelmed by contradictory and conflicting information? Unsure who to trust? Would love to eat for your health but don’t know where to start?

There are healthy choices that you could be making now which mean a rich array of tasty nutritious food, that may improve the quality of your life and reduce your future risk of disease. For more information look at my health page, where you will find articles on the the science of nutrition and wellness.

My aim is to show you which nutrition headlines have some good quality scientific evidence behind them and help you identify the ‘fact’ from the ‘fiction’. I chose the name of my business ‘Healthy Eating doctor’ to convey that I’m a doctor, who integrates nutrition, health and scientific evidence, to help you eat for health.

Based on questions from clients, I’ve designed Free Resources designed to give you a general frame work for your nutritional needs. I know how difficult it can be to eat healthily, and also find credible dietary information at different stages of your life. There are guides for fertility, pregnancy, breastfeeding, polycystic ovary syndrome and menopause.

I studied medicine at Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge and University College London and was a paediatric doctor for over a decade. I have completed a PhD in cancer genetics from UCL and hold a postgraduate Membership of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.

I am a Registered Nutritionist, specialising in Nutrition Science, with the Association for Nutrition, and have an accreditation for Applied Human Nutrition from The University of Cambridge. I no longer practice as a doctor, but instead provide nutritional consultancy, and lecture on culinary science and nutrition.

Appointments

My advice is based on the latest science, and my aim is to provide a practical approach to enjoying tasty real food for life based on scientific evidence, to improve your health. Since everyone has a unique makeup shaped by their genes, lifestyle, gut microbes and medical history, I provide a personalised nutrition advice and appointment service that is tailored to you as an individual and your needs.

My expertise is nutrition science, focusing on assisting people address specific health concerns, with science backed nutrition. This includes pre operative optimisation, post-operative recovery, fertility, cancer, the menopause, during and after pregnancy. Personalised nutrition that is evidence backed is key.

Personalised Nutrition

I provide consultations either by video call or face to face if location allows. As with improving physical fitness with a personal trainer, I recommend repeated consultations to continue to review and improve your food choices. A  minimum of three sessions are advisable, which are available as packages.

Adults

Life is busy, and with news headlines bombarding us on an almost daily basis about the latest health fad, or ‘superfood’ it can be hard to know how to improve your health choices. Instead of following restrictive diets, detox drinks, and lots of supplements, I am able to provide you with with personalised evidence informed information about healthy eating which is practical to follow and tasty.

Children

Together with my experience as a paediatrician, and personal experience as a mother with two children, I am able to provide support with weaning, and guidance for helping to achieve healthy eating in older children. I have personal and professional experience of children with complex allergies, exclusion diets for weaning babies, children needing extra calorie and breastfeeding mothers. I am able to provide family packages tailored to your personalised nutrition needs as individuals, but sustainable and practical for busy family life.
