Meet Rachel, The DNA Dietitian®

Board-certified RD MSc PGDip BSc

Hi, I’m Rachel, a nutrigenomic Dietitian fascinated with all things science, diet, and DNA. 

My goal is to enlighten as many people as I can with the right nutrition, tailored specifically to their unique DNA, so they can live their best life.

It was my own life journey, that led me to my career as a Dietitian. I was overwhelmed with all the conflicting information out there, and it was exhausting trying all the latest fads to no avail. I was unhappy with my figure, had low energy, and felt totally defeated by the world of wellness.

After over a decade later, and extensive training and research into inflammation, genetics, and nutrition, I had mastered my quest to wellness. I personalised my own diet based on my DNA, and I’ve never felt better about myself, both inside and outside.

What’s even better is that you too, can also look and feel your best. I’ve created a framework for my patients to Eat The DNA Way® according to their own unique requirements.

Rachel's Story

Rachel received a First-Class Honours in Biomedical Science BSc where she was set on unearthing the root cause of inflammation, a sweeping chronic disease.

A further two years at King’s College provided Rachel with expert skills in the treatment and management of medical conditions. Rachel benefited from the clinical training programs at esteemed hospitals, including The Royal Marsden, Imperial College Trust, and St Thomas’s Hospital.

Rachel’s extensive qualifications in the dietary treatment of medical disease and health optimisation, earned her the position of guest lecturer at St Mary’s University, which she currently holds. She is also a contributing author to a nutrigenomic literature review with The University of Toronto.

At King’s College London, Rachel studied Nutrition at a molecular and biochemical level, during her master’s degree. Her findings have been published for research in epigenetics – how diet affects DNA expression.

Rachel worked as a clinical dietitian under the NHS at Chelsea and Westminster hospital, before starting her own practice on Harley Street which saw the birth of The DNA Dietitian.

Further Qualifications

To be a true expert in any field, learning never stops. Rachel continues to enrich her professional knowledge through ongoing mentorship and education from the head of Nutrigenomics at The University of Toronto & specialist IBS management at King’s College London
