Small changes in your diet can lead to big changes in your health

Can you remember the last time you felt really well?

If the answer is no it may be time to start thinking about your diet. Eating the right food at the right time will transform the way you feel each day and a few nutritional changes could result in a dramatic improvement to your health. I can help you to establish what those changes should be and how you can build them into your daily routine.  This isn’t a diet or a quick fix; it’s a lifestyle change and a long term solution to your health, wellbeing and happiness.

Take control of your health and you will cope better with the stresses and strains of daily life. I can work with you to devise a nutritional programme tailored to your individual needs, helping to increase your energy levels in the day and sleep well at night. You’ll look healthy and feel alert, increasing your confidence and the way you approach daily life, safe in the knowledge that you are doing the very best for your overall wellbeing. Be kind to your body and feed it with the nutrient dense food it deserves to help you get the very best out of your life.

Why work with me

I’m Tracey Harper, a leading local Nutritional Therapist and IFM certified Functional Medicine Practitioner based in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire. I work with a broad range of clients to teach them about real food and revive their health and vitality through nutrition. The reason many of my clients see me is because they can’t remember the last time they felt really well. They may have been coping with a chronic condition for a long time and cannot seem get to the root of the problem.   Through nutrition I look at the cause of the issue to find a long term solution to good health, alleviating the symptoms and making people feel themselves again.

Eat well – work well – live well

Your diet affects the way you look, feel and perform each day and I can help you change the way you eat for the better. I will devise a personalised and practical nutritional programme tailored to your lifestyle that will include menu plans, recipes, shopping lists and relaxation tips, empowering you to feel positive and manage the challenges you face each day.

I love sharing my passion and enthusiasm for food with anyone who wants to learn and so I am running monthly Food Preparation and Cooking Experiences.  These workshops are a natural extension to my nutrition consultations as I can provide hands on guidance to make simple, tasty and nourishing food. Occasionally, if appropriate, I incorporate food preparation with a client consultation!

I discovered the connection between diet, lifestyle and health when I was working in a high pressured corporate environment in London. As the demands of my job took over and challenged my physical and emotional health I wanted to learn more about how I could look after myself and regain a healthy and manageable work-life balance. Through my own interest in health and wellbeing I realised I could support other people too and trained to become a qualified Nutritional Therapist. Having been there myself, I understand how easily the daily challenges of life can take over, so that our own body maintenance drops to the bottom of the list. I soon realised that if you take control of your health you will be in control of your life.

“I was pretty desperate when I first met Tracey. I’ve suffered from autoimmunity for as long as I can remember having had glandular fever twice, then developing ulcerative colitis during my first pregnancy and then adding rheumatoid arthritis to that after the birth of my second child. I’d tried numerous drugs which worked for a while and then either stopped working or presented awful side effects. I was having flare ups on a daily basis and struggling to cope with young kids and a full-time job.

The thought of depending on heavy medication for the foreseeable future was scary as it wasn’t working and made me fear for other side effects I might encounter. I had been told about functional medicine on a Jason Vale juicing retreat, so I decided to explore it. I found Tracey on the ifm.org website and from day one, Tracey’s communications were informed, clear and kind. We had an exploratory chat and I felt excited at what could be, though she managed my expectations about it not being a quick fix and the efforts I would need to put in.

Tracey was thorough in her approach, establishing a clear picture of my health history and contributing factors. She helped me realise that my mental health was directly related to how ill I was, and I needed to take some time out to heal. The way she delivered this message was incredibly kind, and strong enough for me to finally take it seriously.

Tracey’s knowledge seems limitless, backed up by her constant self-development and completion of specialist courses, which directly benefitted me. She gave me a clear plan to follow, which incorporated diet, supplements, reducing my toxic burden, and stress management in the form of various things such as massage, country walks, yoga, meditation, journaling and exploring things I enjoyed again as I had lost that over time.
She was incredibly proactive and sent lots of information, introduced me to other people who were on similar journeys, invited me to relevant talks and workshops, and kept in touch to see how I was getting on. The initial food regime didn’t work in the way we’d hoped, so she advised me to explore another (auto-immune paleo plan) and again provided all the information I needed to do it including recipes, introductions to organic suppliers, books and relevant articles.

I have now been working with Tracey for 4 months and can honestly say I haven’t felt this good for years. I’ve lost 2 stone, haven’t had a flare up for months, feel much happier, less stressed and calmer. I now understand how to manage my autoimmunity and live in a way that enables me, and my family, to be healthier and happier. I have made serious changes to our lives because I have the information to support it and have experienced the benefits that make me, and my family, want to carry it on.

Over this time Tracey has been a rock for me, always willing to share her knowledge, network and be there when I needed help shaping things along the way. I can’t thank her enough for helping me at such a desperate time and heartily recommend her to anyone.”
