Hi, I’m Emilia!
My goal as a Nutritionist is to help you

achieve clear skin.

How I can help

an introduction to nutritional therapy

How I work

My passion is to help you regain your confidence so that you can feel happy in your own skin. To do this, I dig deep into your health history to work out what has led you to present with the symptoms you have today. When we understand what is contributing to your current symptoms and skin condition, you can feel empowered and have control over your skin and your health. Each one of us is unique and that is why I take a personalised approach to nutrition, taking into account your genetics, family history, lifestyle, beliefs & dietary factors. Each person with acne will have a different cause, requiring different approaches. There is no one size fits all to your wellness.

Nutrition isn’t the only factor when it comes to clear skin, and this is why in our consultation I may recommend other practitioners, such as osteopaths, facialists, therapists or counsellors. By working on all areas of health (mental wellbeing, lifestyle, diet & skincare) we can achieve results quicker, that last longer.

What is Nutritional Therapy?

Nutritional Therapy is a science-based approach to help you achieve wellness. The therapy focuses on the nutrient value of your diet, while also taking into account your environmental, lifestyle and genetic factors. It focuses on you and your body as a whole, as opposed to focusing on just your presenting symptoms.

Functional tests are available at additional costs. These are in-depth tests that help to find underlying imbalances, deficiencies or infections that could be contributing to your symptoms. Functional testing can also be used from a preventive approach, maintaining wellness and minimising disease risk.

What to expect on our journey together

My goal is to help you achieve clear skin and regain your confidence so you can be the best version of yourself. I know how much acne can hold you back and that shouldn’t be something you just have to accept and live with.

To do this, I want to focus on helping you create healthy habits for life, and that is why I offer my services as packages through my program Healthy Skin from Within. This allows us to work together and have regular meetings, so that eating in a way that supports your body becomes second nature. I believe that having a coach that you can talk to regularly is the best way to stay on track to achieving your goals and lasting skin results.

Before we work together, I want you to know that taking a holistic approach to your health isn’t a quick fix. It takes time, consistency and persistence. It’s not always linear and you will have good and bad days, and that’s fine. I am here to keep you on track, listen to you and motivate you to keep going.

Some bonuses from
working inside out on your skin

Because the body is all connected and each system talks to each other, i.e your gut influences your immune system, which affects your hormones, which can affect your energy levels, when you start to take a holistic approach to your skin you may also find:

  • You feel more energised
  • You’re less bloated
  • You sleep better
  • You feel better about yourself
  • Your periods are easier to manage
  • You reach your ideal weight
  • You have a better quality of life

FAQ

your questions, answered

How long until I see results with nutrition?

This depends on how long you have had your symptoms, how motivated you are to change and how well you stick to the recommendations. If you have had a particular problem for years, it may be a few months for you to see noticeable changes. Generally most people tend to see a difference within 12 weeks.

Will the diet recommendations be really restrictive?

Diet recommendations are always tailored to your needs. If you feel your diet needs big improvements to become more healthy, this can be done very gradually, changing only a few aspects at a time. It’s important that your diet includes food that you enjoy and that you can stick to. If it is too restrictive, food is no longer enjoyable and your diet change will not be sustainable. Nutritional recommendations may be restrictive for a short period of time, such as removing possible food intolerances for six weeks, the goal can be to reintroduce these foods afterwards.

Do you include meal plans and recipes?

I tend to recommend specific foods and you can introduce these into your diet however you would like. I do recommend websites and cookbooks for recipes, but I do not write my own recipes and cannot plan a full meal plan for you (e.g what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day).

Are supplements needed if I eat a healthy diet and exercise?

Eating a healthy diet is always the basis and most important factor. However, our soils are depleted, our food no longer has the same nutritional content as it used to, most of us are highly stressed and our environment is polluted. These all contribute to a higher demand of nutrients needed by the body which isn’t achievable through diet alone. If we do discover any deficiencies or infections, supplements will need to be used at a therapeutic dose for a short period of time to address this.

Can I have nutritional advice alongside medication for acne?
Yes! I always take into account what medication you are taking and make sure we
AVOID anything that could potentially interact with your medication. Nutrition may also
help to reduce side effects that can happen due to certain medications.
Can I book just one session?
I do not offer one-off sessions as it’s not an effective strategy to achieve results. It takes time, consistency, and persistence to create healthy habits for life. I am here to support you every step of the way when you’re ready to start your journey.
Why are the supplements you recommend more expensive than the ones in supermarkets?

Just like junk food is usually cheaper than higher quality, organic food, supplements also range in quality and price. Cheaper supplements can have more additives and fillers in them, less of the active ingredients and contain forms of minerals that are harder to absorb and utilise. The supplements I recommend use therapeutic dosages, are easily absorbed by the body and help to get results quicker. Additives in supplements may cause reactions in some individuals, as they can contain ingredients such as gluten, dairy, soy and other common allergens. The brands that I choose are hypoallergenic, meaning they contain very few of these common allergens.

What is personalised nutrition?
Each client that I see with the same conditions, will all have completely different nutritional plans. This is because we all have a different health timeline, including medications we have taken, illnesses or infections we have had in the past, stress, genetics, life experiences, personal choices and beliefs. We are all unique when it comes to our biology, and this is why certain medications, supplements and protocols do not work the same for all of us. All these factors influence what foods, supplements and lifestyle changes will suit you best and give you results in the safest, easiest, and quickest way possible.
What solutions do you offer during a consultation?
Your plan will include diet and lifestyle changes as well as supplement recommendations. The plan may also focus on exercise advice, stress management and other lifestyle advice like daily routines. Sometimes referrals to other practitioners may be necessary such as osteopaths, chiropractors, counsellors and your doctor.
Do I need to spend a lot of money on a consultation, healthy foods and supplements?
I always take into account your budget and how much you are able to spend a month on supplements and food shopping. Functional tests are private tests available at additional costs. They can be used to investigate areas deeper such as gut health, hormones, inflammation and infections. Nutritional therapy is a lifestyle change and does require an investment of money, time and effort, but an investment in your health today can help reduce the risk of disease in later life. The payment made for a consultation covers the time that is spent in the 90 minute discussion, but also the time taken afterwards to research your case to develop the perfect plan for you.
How do you keep up to date with all the latest research in nutrition?
As a member of BANT, I am required to complete a minimum of 30 hours a year of conferences, webinars, seminars and research to make sure that all the recommendations I make to clients are based on the latest information and research. Nutritional therapy is a science-based approach, with new research coming out every day.
