Diploma in Nutritional Therapy, Institute for Optimum Nutrition
Nutritional therapist & educator championing positive relationships with food. Specialist in gut, immunity and hormones.
I have worked in the sector of nutrition and lifestyle medicine as a forward-thinking nutritional therapy practitioner 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 at the Institute 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 alike, and I am regularly asked to speak at conferences and events, as well as contributing 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 allowed me to accomplish lasting 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.
I have been commended for my ability to convey complex nutritional and health messages in a clear and engaging way to the public and students through my posts and videos on social media, online workshops and public speaking 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 practitioners.
In addition, I provide all clinical provision for the Amelia Freer brand. Amelia Freer is a high profile media nutritional therapist and celebrated �nutritionist to the stars�. She is also the author of four books.
