Hi, my name is Janet, thanks for visiting my site

Your health aspirations are my priority and I offer nutrition consultations which aim to help you achieve your health and wellbeing goals.

I am a fully qualified nutritional therapist (DipION, mBANT, CNHC Registered) and founder of Apples to Zinc Nutritional Therapy.

I have always been interested in food and nutrition but, until I had my own family, it was simply an interest.  Having a family really changed my priorities and the way I felt about health.  Not only did I feel the huge responsibility to ensure my children were healthy and eating the right foods, I also wanted to make sure my husband and I were healthy too so that we could set a good example to our girls and to maximise our chances of a long and healthy life.

I kept hearing the media reports of the worsening health of the nation and decided that I wanted to learn more and to help educate and inspire the future generations to take control of their health and wellness.  I enrolled and studied at the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition and haven’t looked back.

I worked in the corporate world for over 15 years and am very familiar with the challenges that this environment provides to people who are trying to change their diet and lifestyle.  Having a family has also given me a wealth of experience and understanding of how budget, different food preferences and time pressures can impact on how we eat and live our lives.

headshot-2My approach to nutritional therapy is realistic, simple and supportive.  I focus on adding or replacing foods in the diet rather than just taking them out.  I take account of a client’s budget, time pressures and food preferences to provide a tailored programme to support the client’s health concerns.

I am very passionate about food and how it can support health but understand that it is, in many cases, not an alternative to conventional medicine and so I aim to work with GP recommendations and with other alternative therapies to help you to achieve control over yours and your family’s health

I would love to help you to achieve your health goals so why not get in contact today and see how I may be able to help
