Corporate nutrition advice from a nutritional therapist in Edinburgh
There can be no denying that the health and wellbeing of a workforce are key to the success of a company. Yet how many colleagues, employees or friends do we know who are always tired, stressed, lose concentration easily, susceptible to colds and flu, overweight, depressed and have digestion problems?
Healthy employees are nearly 3 times more productive than employees with poor health (Medicare report)
Employees with poor health take up to 9 times more sick leave than their healthy colleagues (Medicare report)

Better decision making
It’s normal to have a lot of questions at this stage. Here are my most commonly asked questions:
This depends on many things. For example, how long you’ve been unwell for, what the underlying causes of your symptoms are and how much you need or are able to change your diet and lifestyle. I would certainly hope to see improvements within the duration of your health package. We may wish to work together for longer after this.
The foods you eat are at the core of my work. Food provides the foundations to then add targeted supplements where needed. I only use companies whose research and ingredients I trust. There are a lot of “not very good” supplements on the market, made with fillers and in forms the body can’t use very well. I disagree strongly with statements saying that all supplement are a waste of money. Therapeutically, I see them make huge differences and science backs this up.
Your consultations are normally 4 weeks apart. On a package you will have a 15 minute call with me every week in between consultations so we can make amendments in the interim and so that I am able to fully support you.
I don’t always recommend testing but if I think it will help you get better quicker then I will. I only recommend tests that will change my course of action.
My most frequent tests are the GI Map (stool test) SIBO breath test (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), ONE test (Optimal Nutritional Evaluation) and DUTCH test (hormone testing).
No, I hope not! In some cases, I recommend elimination diets to my clients but only when these are appropriate. My aim is to have you eating as wide a range of foods as possible – hopefully including the odd glass of wine and piece of cake! However, do be prepared to make some dietary changes.
No! One of the reasons my first consultation is 1.5 hours is so I can understand your lifestyle, who you cook for and what is realistic for you to be able to do. The vast majority of clients are extremely busy, so quick meals are an absolute must.
