What is Nutritional Therapy?

In nutritional therapy we look at the whole person and the whole picture to assess and analyse what could be the potential underlying imbalances mediating your ill feeling. We look at diet and lifestyle factors, stress factors, environmental factors and everything that is mentally and physically consumed potentially causing adversity in the mind and body. We look at possible vitamin and mineral deficiencies and if there is a need for supplementation and functional tests through your GP or privately.

Nutritional therapy is not a 'one size fits all' diet plan. We focus on the individual rather than the symptoms and the support and advice is completely personalised to you and your needs. It also requires time and effort and therefore it is not a 'quick fix'. We use a targeted staged manageable approach to helping you reach your health goals.

Registered nutritional therapy practitioners are trained to use the functional medicine model and a functional medicine approach to analyse all systems in the body, its interactions, external factors and potential predispositions. We are trained to assess for underlying biochemical and nutritional imbalances and apply nutritional science research and up to date evidence based information.

Nutritional therapy is not a replacement for medical advice and practitioners will often liaise with the client's GP and other healthcare practitioners, to ensure safe practice at all times and act in the best interest of the client.

How do the 1:1 Consultations Work?

Firstly we need to find out about you. This means your health history, family history, medications and supplements, symptoms, eating and lifestyle habits. This is to enable me to do a thorough assessment of your health status, analyse your food diary and lifestyle habits, and know your health goals.

I will ask you to complete a Health Questionnaire and a detailed 3 day food diary.

When we have our 1:1 consultations, the initial session will last longer, up to 90 minutes as we explore your health concerns and symptoms and the potential underlying imbalances. We will explore and address the possible root mediators which I will explain to you and we may investigate with functional laboratory tests and discuss supplementation if appropriate*. We then collaboratively devise an actionable personalised Wellness Plan, which includes diet and lifestyle modfifications that is workable for you. Our follow up consultations will review how the Wellness Plan is going, explore further the mediators to your symptoms and update the Wellness Plan. You will get full support and coaching to help you achieve your health goals and focussed attention to you and your wellbeing throughout our journey together.

Once you have booked your programme, you will get a Welcome Pack explaining everything.

How many consultations will I need?

The amount of sessions needed depends on your specific case and you as an individual. If you have quite a complex case that requires exploration of many areas and time to make the changes, this may need a longer time period over a number of months. On the other hand, you may just be looking for a diet and lifestyle boost whereby you want to ensure your optimal wellbeing, then this would take a lot less time. All of the programmes (Wellness Journeys) allow for consultations approximately every 2-4 weeks, as well as support calls in between, so you are fully coached and supported along the way and do not feel left alone. We can discuss what is best and right for you and your individual situation to help meet your health goals.

How much will it cost?

There are three programmes (Wellness Journeys) and a Diet & Lifetsyle Boost programme. Please have a look here to find out more about each one.

"I had an excellent experience with Laminn and I would recommend her to anyone. She helped me build a sustainable plan for myself that I honestly can keep to while still enjoying my favourite foods and without missing too much by helping me identify which triggers caused me the most problems and found alternatives I can enjoy instead. She also did not tell me to cut out XYZ food groups but helped me identify which ones I can cut down and which ones I would not miss too much by cutting out. I have seen a significant improvement in my health, both mental and physical, which I can only put down to what I am fuelling my body with"
