Ellie has always been passionate about food and the connection between how and what we eat, our health and how we feel.
Ellie’s degree in Herbal Medicine included studying nutrition. Since completing her degree in 2000 she has completed several further nutrition courses. Ellie sees clients privately for nutrition appointments and teaches on the nutrition module of the Heartwood professional herbal medicine course. She also teaches almost all of the nutrition courses at City Lit college in Covent Garden. (Previously, she taught nutrition and herbalism courses at the Mary Ward Centre in Russell Square for over ten years.)

Your initial nutrition consultation will last one hour. In that time you will be asked to give a thorough medical history so Ellie can get a complete picture of your past and present health. You will be asked to bring along a four day diet diary listing everything you have eaten and drunk in the last four days and also any medicines or supplements you are taking. Ellie will ask what your goals are and then work with you to devise an individual dietary plan that will help you achieve them, a plan which is also going to fit in with your tastes and lifestyle. Often Ellie will give recipes to try and may recommend nutritional supplements. Advice on exercise and relaxation/time management is also included.
Subsequent appointments are thirty minutes long and are an opportunity to review your progress, alter your dietary programme as necessary, discuss your barriers to success and develop further strategies to help you achieve good health. Typically clients come for between two and four nutrition consultations and report that they are incredibly worthwhile in terms of improving both short term and long term health and achieving personal health goals such as losing weight, having more energy, improved digestion, less pain or improved hormone balance.
