Hi, I'm Marta...
REGISTERED NUTRITIONAL THERAPIST DipCNM mBANT CNHC
I'm a registered Nutritional Therapist and I help women regain control over their health and bodies so they can enjoy life to the fullest!
Having spent years indulging in far too many sausage rolls, pastries and Red Bulls I know too well how much of an impact poor food choices have on the body - painful periods, cravings, zero energy, bloating, sleepless nights and constipation to name a few. Before I realised my passion for health and wellbeing I spent 10 years in the dental industry where I discovered how huge of an impact diet has on our oral health. I studied to become a dental nurse and oral health educator and became very passionate about educating people on how to keep their teeth healthy.
Fast forward to 2014 I decided to pursue my passion and spent the next 3 years studying Nutritional Therapy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London.
I’m a member of BANT, which means that I have to continuously attend undergraduate and postgraduate training on a regular basis to stay on top of the latest research into the ever changing field of nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
Outside of work I love spending time outdoors, walking my two dachshunds Bodhi and Pepper, hanging upside down at an aerial class or cooking something delicious in the kitchen.
What Is Nutritional Therapy?
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of optimal health and wellbeing; Practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health issues.
Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing.
Practitioners recongnise that each person is unique and recommend personalised nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Nutritional therapy is never recommended as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also 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.
