Rita Carmichael

Nutritional Therapist in Nottingham

I am a registered nutritional therapist in Nottingham and have been practising since 2006.

There is no such thing as the "average person" when it comes to health and diet. You are unique and have your own individual requirements for nutrients to support the major systems in the body towards a state of optimal health. Nutritional therapy aims to stimulate the body's powerful healing capacity to restore good health, rather than masking symptoms. Often just small changes to diet and lifestyle can bring about significant health improvements. The effects of good food on your body will delight and amaze you.

My Specialisms

I have a particular interest in weight management, healthy ageing, energy levels, female hormones, autoimmune conditions and digestive health; I also offer nutritional support for people with cancer. I am a coach for Metabolic Balance®, the natural weight management and hormone-balancing nutrition.

I also offers wellbeing solutions in the workplace and write a healthy eating blog Nutri Natters, which can be found at All of the recipes on my blog are designed to be anti-inflammatory and most are gluten-free.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

The body has an amazing capacity to repair when given the right conditions. As an experienced and qualified nutritional therapist, I'll guide and support you on your journey towards optimal health and wellbeing. Drawing on principles derived from current biochemical and physiological scientific knowledge, I'll assess your nutritional needs and recommend a personal healthy living plan to address the causes of ill-health and restore balance in the body.

Before we meet, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire about your health concerns, medical history, eating habits and lifestyle (the questionnaire can be downloaded from my web site During our first consultation, we will agree a personalised healthy eating and lifestyle plan, giving practical and manageable advice for you to follow at home. Be assured that you won't be asked to do anything that you don't want to do!

The latest lab tests (to identify any chemical imbalances in the body) and nutritional supplements may be recommended. Follow-up consultations are recommended to monitor progress and move you further towards your health goals.

Consultations are face-to-face, by telephone or Skype.
