About Rachel

Board-certified RD MSc PGDip BSc

 

I’m Rachel, and I’m a Nutrigenomic Dietitian & University Lecturer on a mission to free you from the guesswork around what you should be eating.

In more ways than one, I’m just like you.

I spent years trying to figure out what foods were right for me and I ended up feeling totally confused, low in energy, and defeated by the world of wellness.

Listening to self-proclaimed ‘experts’ in the field, I started to cut out many foods I loved and ended up malnourished – I couldn’t have been further away from my goals… to feel full of life with the body of my dreams.

Eleven years have passed, and extensive training and research into Inflammation, Genetics, and Nutrition, provided me with the knowledge to personalise my own diet, according to my DNA. I’ve never felt more relaxed around food, healthier in myself, or been happier with my body! No more guesswork – just powerful insights about the foods my body needs daily.

What’s more, I’ve created a framework for my patients to eat The DNA Way® and finally meet their unique requirements.

Do you feel like you’ve tried everything and are still not where you need to be? Are you looking for a similar solution that’s based on real science and not opinion? Are you ready to feel empowered with the answers you’ve longed for?

Click here to read about how we can work together or read more about my qualifications below.

If you’re more interested in the science that underpins my work you can listen here to the podcast episode I recorded with the world-renowned Dr. Rupy Aujla from the ‘Doctor’s Kitchen’ where we talk about ‘Eating with your Genes!’.
