Alison Riley - The Wholefood Nutritionist
The Wholefood Nutritionist
I am a professionally trained, degree qualified Holistic Nutritionist specialising in Digestive Health, Detoxification, Parasite Cleansing and the restoration of Optimal Gut function. 10,000 years ago Hippocrates said All Disease begins in the Gut and it is on this premise that I base my work in order to achieve total body, mind and spirit healing and integration for myself and my clients.
I am passionate about discovering WHY disease occurs and incorporate an awareness of the mind/body connection. I aim to help you achieve optimal physical vitality and mental clarity through pure wholefoods and detoxification.
In addition to my 8 years in clinical practice, I have worked in an International Detoxification and Rejuvenation Clinic supervising and supporting patients on detoxification programs; been involved in nutritional research with a GP focusing on intestinal cleansing and restoration; and contributed to the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" researching and formulating juice fast programmes.
Above all, I am a true foodie and emphasise that healthy nutrition is about flavour, quality produce and a variety of wholefoods and not becoming to finnicky or fussy. I have extensive experience in the food industry working in Fine Dining restaurants and Health Food Stores whilst funding my studies, which enables me to provide practical, useful and easy dietary suggestions that are both tasty and good for you.
As a new mother to a healthy and thriving boy in March 2012, Alison can also guide you first hand through preconception and fertility care, pregnancy nutrition and optimal food choices for your little one
