Ceri’s private practice, Beyond Nutrition UK, offers a comprehensive evidence-based approach to personalised nutrition medicine and lifestyle interventions underpinned using the functional medicine approach.
During a consultation, Ceri will assess your diet, lifestyle, and health history to structure a targeted, individual nutrition strategy, including diet, cooking, exercise, and lifestyle interventions to support your health journey.
A range of functional tests are available which can be useful to help identify disturbances in physiological functioning that conventional tests can miss because they are not sensitive enough. Functional tests allow Ceri to understand the root cause of your health complaint, so she can treat the problem efficiently and effectively based on scientific fact.
Ceri offers virtual nutrition consultations and 1:1 guidance is also available. Ceri also offers Corporate Wellness packages which apply the science of nutrition. All advice and information you receive will be based on the latest scientific evidence. Ceri is happy to work alongside your other health care professionals to foster better results for you.
Ceri’s current research into the Gut – Brain Axis, looks at the effects of nutrition and lifestyle interventions on Mental health, Mood and behaviour via the gut microbiota.
Alongside her clinical work, Ceri is also an NLP Practitioner, health writer and freelance copywriter.
What is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care and can support individuals with a range of health concerns.
Nutritional Therapists frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided, this is to ensure client safety and most effective service.
Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been shown to support the health of all the major systems of the body (skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, excretory, endocrine, immune, reproductive, and integumentary [skin, hair, nails]). Typical priorities in nutritional therapy consultations include support to achieve optimum energy levels, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological wellbeing, and optimum gastrointestinal health.
