The Nutritional Realist Services

At the Nutritional Realist we are passionate about empowering you to great health and wellbeing. Our aim is to help you make nutritional, and sometimes lifestyle, changes that fit with your life, your pace, and your health goals.

The Basis of Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care.  Nutritional therapy practitioners use a wide range of tools to assess and identify potential nutritional imbalances and understand how these may contribute to an individual’s symptoms and health concerns. This approach allows them to work with individuals to address nutritional balance and help support the body towards maintaining health.Nutritional advice

Nutritional therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine. It is relevant both for individuals looking to enhance their health and wellbeing and for those with chronic conditions wishing to work with or 'consult' a nutritional therapist in collaboration with other suitably qualified healthcare professionals.

Practitioners consider each individual to be unique and recommend personalized nutrition and lifestyle programmes rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Practitioners never recommend nutritional therapy as a replacement for medical advice and always refer any client with ‘red flag’ signs or symptoms to their medical professional. They will also frequently work alongside a medical professional and will communicate with other healthcare professionals involved in the client’s care to explain any nutritional therapy programme that has been provided.


Education with implementation is key in our interactive workshops designed to hone your own knowledge, enabling you to make informed choices about your health. A bit like sharpening your virtual machete to get you through the health jungle!

Private sessions

In our personalised consultations we look to identify imbalances and their underlying causes as well as dealing with any symptoms you may have.  We like to keep things as straightforward as possible, equipping you with advice, knowledge and techniques that you can implement for great results.

In your initial consultation we will take you through a pre-completed questionnaire to understand your current health issues, health history and diet. Together we will create a Health Improvement Plan, consisting of dietary and lifestyle recommendations for the next 4 – 6 weeks. If supplements are required these will be discussed at this point, along with recommendations for any functional biochemical tests. Follow up appointments are usually held 4 - 6 weeks later and consist of a review of the symptoms, discussion of any test results and adjustments to the Health Improvement Plan (and if required supplement plan).

"Lisa has such a great brand concept with The Nutritional Realist, inspiring education on Nutrition to many different kinds of people. Hosting an event with Lisa as the guest speaker meant people felt at ease through Lisa's nature but also engrossed in the educational facts that were brought to life in how we should look after ourselves.
Attendees came away feeling positive and energised having listened to Lisa and I would highly recommend getting in touch with Lisa to host future events of this kind.
Thanks again!"
