Registered Nutritional Therapist BSc (Hons), mBANT, CNHC
I’m often asked what I most like about being a registered nutritional therapist? My answer is this: few things in life beat seeing someone who hasn’t been looking or feeling good for years, walking back into my office looking lighter, brighter and feeling fabulous. A few of Louise’s friends and family are cases in point. Many people come to see me for support with digestive issues, skin problems, stubborn weight loss, hormone issues or sometimes a couple of these or all of them. Often they have been suffering silently, feeling below par for years, going around in circles trying different approaches before we meet. The good news is that the new science on the microbiome, the kilo and a half of bacteria in our guts, can be manipulated through diet and lifestyle – two areas YOU control. Feeding the microbiome right may improve digestive issues, skin, mood, weight, and immunity too. I offer microbiome stool testing in my practice so you can get a picture of how depleted or out of balance your gut bacteria is. This can be very motivating for making good food choices. Nutritional therapy is a therapy, not a quick fix pill (alas!), which means you work with your therapist over a series of sessions (a few months), on issues that may have been going on for years. The aim is to work with you to commit and bed down new habits so they become the norm based on eating delicious, enjoyable foods for the individual you are, to keep you happy and looking and feeling your best for the long term."

Suzanne Duckett is a well known beauty and wellness journalist who has been writing about her field for over 20 years for titles including Tatler; Vogue; Elle; Grazia; Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and Sunday Times Style. She is the Editor of the infamous, annual Tatler spa guide (probably her favourite gig) and thisistheantidote.com; her newest and most personal passion.
Suzanne admits whole heartedly to being totally nuts about her subject and all the fascinating aspects that contribute towards to that whole grail we call ‘wellness'. 'It’s definitely a holistic formula that’s needed to achieve feeling well’ she says, 'being a nice human being, consciousness, spirituality, family, friends, fun, laughter, nutrition, fitness, complimentary medicine, yoga, health and beauty products and cures all have their part to play ('and probably in that order' she says!).
