About Sally

Nutrition & Lifestyle Medicine and Complementary Health

Hello! I’m Sally

Health writer, Reg Nutritional Therapist (rCNHC) & Reg Nutritionist (MBANT)

Nutritional therapists are often viewed as pious, clean-living individuals, baking kamut muffins for fun.  I hate to disappoint you – I’m really not like that.

Having spent my teens and early twenties as a terrible pescatarian (more of a ‘pastafarian’​ if I’m honest, living on pasta bake and cheese) I know from experience the detrimental effects of poor food choices.

Zero energy, spots, raging pre-menstrual tension, bloating, crazy bowel habits…the list goes on.

At age 21 I got a job in a fantastic local healthfood store (Tullivers in York city centre) and slowly began my journey into the world of herbs, nutrition, naturopathy and positive lifestyle changes.

I loved sharing this information with customers and decided to take things further by qualifying as a Nutritional Therapist.
I ran a private clinic in central York for over ten years and now focus on nutrition & lifestyle medicine writing, workshops and education.
My area of particular interest is the fascinating link between our gut and brain.

Your tummy talks with your brain all the time: nutrition helps us to know which foods make the best conversation!
