The world of nutrition can be confusing with lots of contradictory information out there. As the only nutritional therapist in Durham registered with the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy, Ali wants to help you get a clear picture of your health.  Many people suffer with symptoms of ill health every day.  Failing to realise that this is not simply part of life but rather a result of dietary and lifestyle habits, which could be impacting on your current and future health.

Using up-to-date and evidence based advice we can address imbalances in your body.  By providing an insight into your current lifestyle and dietary habits, we can identify key areas for health improvement.  Ali’s approach is not about counting points or fad diets.  It is about educating you so you can make your own choices,  eat for health and pleasure and lead a life free from any previous constraints associated with food.

Having undertaken training in various biochemical areas, Ali can work with you in various areas of health including:  

  • Weight loss and management
  • Hormone balancing
  • Liver and detoxification support
  • Digestive imbalance
  • Energy production
  • Stress management
  • Fertility
  • Sleep
  • Emotional health

Personalised nutrition consultation   £75 for 90 minutes

Personalised nutrition tailors your diet and lifestyle to your specific needs, goals and symptoms. An initial 90 minute consultation will gather in-depth information which can help support existing conditions or simply gain a more detailed insight into your health.  A detailed health questionnaire and food diary will be sent to you to complete and return before the appointment. Together we will develop an initial health action plan for you to follow. 

Follow up appointments are advised to help track progress and introduce further action points.  These sessions are £45 and will last 45-60 minutes.

Food intolerance testing:

Daily complaints such as bloating, gas, headaches, constipation and fatigue are symptoms that many suffer.  Food intolerance testing gives an indication of what foods your body is mounting an immune response to (causing symptoms) and how eliminating such foods could relieve symptoms.  Food intolerance testing is best used together with a personalised nutrition consultation to fully understand your symptoms but can be done as single follow up appointment.  You can be tested for up to more than 150 foods. 

  • 50 foods -£110
  • 75 foods – £145
  • 100 foods – £175
  • 150+ foods – £230

    Each price option includes a 30 minute consultation after the test to help implement dietary changes.

Nutrigenomics:

Creating the ultimate personalised nutrition.  Nurigenomics evaluates our daily choices such as exercise, lifestyle and specifically diet in relation to our unique genetic make-up.  Your individual DNA will be sequenced and examined to help identify any genetic weaknesses where nutrition can intervene and help you achieve optimal health.  Based on the results a unique plan of action will be developed.  This is a fascinating area of health, suited for anyone interested in knowing more about themselves or for those who are unable to improve existing health issues.  From £350 (including initial DNA test, interpretation, reporting and initial 90 minute consultation). 

Functional laboratory testing:

Functional testing can help identify existing conditions, excess or deficiency in certain nutrients, health risk panels and various other biochemical markers.  If used in conjunction with personalised nutrition it can help identify if the body is missing the basic building blocks for health, which could be resulting in less than optimal health and various symptoms.
