Hello, I’m Karen Maude a registered nutritional therapist practising in Colchester and online. I also write for local publications about nutrition.
I specialise in personalised nutrition taking a holistic and compassionate approach with my clients, backed up with science. This means that I take into consideration all the factors in your life that can affect your nutrition: sleep, stress, lifestyle, exercise, health, etc.
Working within the functional medicine framework I look to identify imbalances in your body and my aim is to help you to feel at your best everyday.
I do this by providing you with a personalised evidence based nutritional plan that you can incorporate into your everyday life and will support you as you as your move forward with implementing changes.

why choose nutritional therapy?
"Nutritional therapy involves carefully chosen diet and lifestyle recommendations to meet your specific needs"
Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health. Nutritional therapy can benefit you if you wish to find a healthier way of living and can help you reach your potential at each stage of life from pregnancy to aging and can support symptoms of chronic disease.
It's crucial that you take care of yourself and good nutrition has a key part to play in maintaining and ensuring your health for the future. In fact, food is at the heart of the lifestyle medicine movement being advocated by the NHS and practiced by a new generation of British GP's, including the best selling author Dr Rangan Chatterjee.
To ensure you achieve the optimal diet for your stage of life it is advisable to meet with a nutritional therapist every few years. Think of your consultation as an MOT, a necessity, not a luxury.
Nutritional Therapists like myself can help with preventative measures to protect your health e.g. weight management and we also seek to identify nutritional imbalances to understand how these may contribute to health issues and can help with a wide varieties of symptoms which may relate for example to:
Allergies and intolerances
Diabetes and pre-diabetes
This list is by no means complete.
It just provides a snapshot of some of the issues I can help you with. Please feel free to contact me to check if I can help you.
