ABOUT MELISSA ROYDE

I am a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist and obtained my Diploma in Nutritional Therapy (Dip.ION) from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in Richmond, London. (Visit www.ion.ac.uk).

 

I am a full member of the British Association of Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT), the regulatory body which ensures high standards of care from practitioners.  (Visit www.bant.org.uk).  I am also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) which regulates complementary health professions.  (Visit www.cnhc.org.uk).  I am a member of the Royal Society of Medicine.

 

I have a clinic in East Horsley, Surrey.  For existing clients, consultations by telephone or Skype can be organized.  See the Contact page.

 

My background

I have practised as a solicitor for the last 16 years in the media sector, including working as Head of Legal and Business Affairs for Jamie Oliver, where my interest in food became a passion. I am also Head of Legal for MeteoGroup Limited, part of the Press Association, in a part-time capacity.

 

Having suffered from various conditions over the years and seen many health care professionals and complementary health practitioners, my fascination in the relationship between diet and health has also grown, leading me to study for my Diploma in Nutritional Therapy for 3 years.

 

My particular interests whilst studying for my Diploma in Nutritional Therapy were:

Gastrointestinal health

Female Hormone Support

Adrenal and Thyroid Function

Weight management

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Sports Nutrition
