About Me

Diana's_Head Shot photos Feb 2016  002 EyesI am a retired Registered Nurse and started my career in 1973.  I have worked in several areas within the N.H.S., private nursing etc. My passion with nutrition emerged from nursing countless people suffering with preventable illnesses. From 1991, I worked for a rehabilitation charity where residents needed help to aid their recovery from illness/accident or mental health problems.
In this setting, I was very involved with health promotion and this is the bee in my bonnet. So much so, that the It’s Your Life! natural health show was born! This event allows me, by way of the exhibitors, to help educate lots more people on how to stay well.

 

I am used to talking to small groups about health and nutrition and this is now a major part of my work. I am the Clinical Nutritionist for the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue service.

With a lifetime of nursing, more than twenty years in health promotion and fifteen years studying human nutrition, I have the experience necessary and a wealth of information that enables me to treat chronic health issues and illnesses – especially gut problems. Apart from my nutrition course, my teachers are the best; the late Barry Groves – a doctor of nutritional science, The Weston A. Price Foundation – a non-profit organization, teaching traditional nutrition; Natasha Campbell McBride – a doctor who specialises in gut disorders and many other specialists. I will never cease researching this subject because information does not cease.

My approach is different, maybe unorthodox – but I assure you my advice completely logical and will ensure that clients see this too.

I do not routinely prescribe supplements and only advise their use if there is no other way.

I am very happy to answer your questions so do please phone me for details or text me a message and I will call you back. There is absolutely no obligation attached to an inquiry.

On a personal level, I have a partner, two grown children and two cats.  I live and work in Reading, Berkshire.

I am fully insured to practice independently.
