Nutritional therapy

Friendly, non-judgemental nutritional advice

Call 07973 854389

The Nutrition Pod is a friendly, non-judgemental hub for nutritional advice, based on the latest scientific studies and facts – no fad diets here! Born out of a passion for natural solutions to personal and family members’ health problems, Lisa has been studying and researching the field of Functional Nutrition since 2012 and adopts a personalised method of optimising health and wellness.

We are all individuals and what works for others may not work for you. There is a significant amount of misleading information about nutrition on social media, but The Nutrition Pod is able to guide you in the right direction. Food and your biochemistry is a complex but pretty amazing thing!

The good news is that only 5% of human disease is actually a direct result of your genes. It’s the environment into which you put those genes that counts, so even if you do have a genetic predisposition to certain health problems, you can keep them dormant or counteract them by improving your nutrition and general wellness. We all live in a fast-moving, stressful world and eating healthily is not always top of our list of priorities, but The Nutrition Pod is here to help you change habits in a safe, effective and inexpensive way.
