I'm Jennifer Williams and I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist working in Braintree, Essex. I have a diploma from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition, London, a world leader in the field of Nutritional Therapy.

Prior to that I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1990 at St. James's University Hospital, Leeds and subsequently worked as a Staff Nurse on the Plastic Surgery ward at the same hospital, where I became interested in health promotion and disease prevention. Consequently I went on to qualify and work as a Health Visitor, including a role as Specialist Health Visitor for the Elderly in Worcester.

When my first son was born I gave up paid work to concentrate on being a full-time mother. When my second son was 2 years old he started to have digestive problems, numerous visits to the GP and paediatrician led only to long term medication with no diagnosis. Subsequently my third son was born and at the age of 2 years he too developed digestive problems. I felt sure that there must be an underlying cause for their digestive difficulties and became more interested in nutrition and its role in health. This led to the study of Nutritional Therapy. Both boys later tested positively for non-coeliac gluten sensitivity. They commenced a gluten free diet and within weeks there was an improvement in their digestive function and mood. 

I believe that what you eat has an enormous impact on your health and energy and it is important to achieve a realistic, sustainable dietary balance in order to support health. As a nutritional therapist I will advise and support to you to enable you to make dietary and lifestyle changes to optimise your metabolism and promote wellbeing.
