Elisa Barker

I have always followed what I thought was a healthy exercise and dietary programme. Despite this, following the birth of my first child proved a challenging time of ill health. The discovery of Nutritional Therapy at this time not only enabled me to restore my health prior to pregnancy, but helped me to achieve an enhanced version of my health and wellbeing.

My journey in studying and practicing Nutritional Therapy has enabled me to experience the value and power that lifestyle and dietary modifications can have both as a complementary practice to conventional medicine and as a preventative and life enhancing education. The evidence base of the therapy provides a solid foundation for dietary programmes and modifications and the power of nutrition is evident in the results that it produces.

Dietary misconceptions in the media and healthcare industry sometimes makes decision making about individual situations difficult. Nutritional Therapy can help to guide clients through these.

I am a BANT registered Nutritional Therapist and I have a BSc in Nutritional Therapy from the University of West London.

I am trained to address all health concerns but specialise in hormone balance, blood sugar balancing and weight loss.

About Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is a scientific and evidence-based approach to improving heath and quality of life. A holistic picture is built of every individual client including current symptoms, but more importantly, the cause. Biochemical imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, digestion and gut integrity and absorption of nutrients and lifestyle factors all interplay in health and wellbeing. Therefore, Nutritional Therapy is concerned with not only improving quality of life and health now but understanding the client’s individual journey to this point and how to maintain health and longevity in the future. In addition to examining dietary and lifestyle factors, Nutritional Therapy can also explore functional testing and supplements as needed.
