Nicola Moore DipION mBANT CNHCReg
I have worked in the sector of nutrition and lifestyle medicine as a forward-thinking nutritional therapist since 2004. I held the role of a senior academic at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) for over 12 years, and overall Head of Clinics for 4 years. During my time at ION I was instrumental in improving the standards of clinical training and professional development of the nutritional therapy profession.
My sensible, evidence-based and pragmatic approach has won praise from both the nutrition industry and public sector, and I am regularly asked to speak at conferences and events, and contribute to mainstream media delivering opinion and advice.
I run an online clinic, working with with clients throughout the UK and internationally. It is my philosophy of focussing on positive relationships with food – and actively stepping back from the perceived perfection that so many people feel they should be achieving – that has most fundamentally enabled lasting, positive impact on the health of my clients. I focus on getting the root cause of my client’s health concerns, working in collaboration with them for a meaningful period of time. My main areas of interest are in gut-related immunity and hormone issues, as I have found these to be inherently important to achieving results in a wide range of health conditions and concerns.
I have been commended for my ability to convey complex nutrition and health messages in a clear and engaging way to my clients, the public sector, and undergraduate nutrition students through social media, my online workshops, public speaking events and lecturing.
My mission to continually improve professional and ethical standards within the nutritional therapy profession continues, and I now run mentoring and clinical support groups online for both practitioners and students.
