Clinical Nutritional Therapist Cheltenham, Gloucester for Optimum Health 

Welcome. My name is Laila Lewis (BSc Hons, Dip CNM, mBANT, CNHC, Cert., ASK); I am a fully qualified and registered clinical Nutritional Therapist, Systematic kinesiologist and the founder of Nourishing by Nature. I run a full-time clinic in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and I am a team member of The Nutrition Coach in London’s Harley Street. I qualified in Nutritional Therapy in 2010 and in the seven years since graduation, I have helped over a thousand people just like you improve their health and wellbeing. I believe everyone has the potential to nourish themselves to optimum health through balancing themselves physiologically and emotionally and that the foundation of this is clinical naturopathic nutrition.

How Nourishing by Nature and clinical nutritional therapy help you

Nutrition and lifestyle approaches to healthcare have been repeatedly shown to support all the systems of the body and nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health and peak performance. In addressing nutritional imbalances the body is supported towards optimum health and vitality. Nutritional Therapists believe that the body has the natural ability to maintain and restore health and work on creating the right conditions for this to occur. To help you achieve this, my mission is to provide you with the support, inspiration and down to earth, friendly advice that enable you to make long-term positive change.

A Functional Medicine approach to healing

I take a Functional Medicine approach and I am a member of The Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM).  This approach aims to address the underlying causes of disease and imbalance via using a systems-oriented approach and involves the client and practitioner entering into a therapeutic partnership. Rather than taking the traditional medical disease-centred approach, this more patient-centred approach works with the whole person and not isolated symptoms and the roots of disharmony are explored.  Taking this approach means that a consultation involves much more than simply giving a Client advice on what to eat. Yes that is a fundamental part, but consultations involve discussion of a Client’s health history and looking for the interactions amongst genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. Functional testing is also often recommended as a way to giving detailed information about physiological imbalances. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
