Hello, my name is Itziar Morate and I am a nutritional therapist. I help people who would like to improve their health, increase energy levels and boost their immune systems. Perhaps you suffer from a chronic illness or maybe you simply want to live a healthier lifestyle. I will give you the tools and knowledge you need to live a better, healthier life.
As a registered nutritional therapist, I am a member of a number of regulatory bodies. This means the expert advice and guidance I give is based upon the latest science and the principles of the functional medicine approach. I am friendly, honest and approachable and take a holistic view of health that reflects your whole body rather than any specific illness or body part.
If you would like to learn more about nutrition for young adults, families and cancer prevention, why not book a free consultation with me at Itziar Morate Nutrition. I offer consultations face to face in London or over the phone/online for those in the UK and abroad.
1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during the lifetime. In 2017, 366,303 cases of cancer were diagnosed. Overall, scientists estimates that around 40% of cancer cases are preventable. That’s around 147,000 cases every year in the UK.
Eating a healthy diet, being more active each day and maintaining a healthy weight are important ways you can reduce your cancer risk (World Cancer Research Fund). If you would like to decrease your risk of you contracting cancer, I can provide a tailored diet plan that will reflect your tastes but also restore the balance in your body.
If you are undergoing treatment for a serious illness such as cancer your appetite, and therefore your health may suffer. For the last four years, I have worked in cancer care in various cancer centres and NHS trusts. I have a real understanding of what the body goes through during these difficult times and what it needs to recover and re-energise.
At ages 18-30 you are at your physical peak, and it is essential that you practice good nutrition to maintain your health. Eating the right foods will support metabolic functioning, protect your immune system and reduce the risk of chronic conditions developing.
Research has shown that your diet affects not just your physical health but also your mental wellbeing. There’s a lot of information out there, some of it conflicting, so it’s not easy knowing exactly what you should and shouldn’t eat. If you need help, I offer tailored support that reflects your needs and lifestyle. I can support you if you suffer from digestion problems, skin disorders, fatigue, stress & anxiety and female health problems such as PMS, PCOS, menopause and weight management.
Nutritional therapy is the application of nutritional science to improve health and wellbeing. This involves identifying imbalances in the body and what problems or symptoms they are causing. Nutritional therapy isn’t a replacement for medical care, but a complementary medicine that is tailored towards the need of the individual. Unlike some forms of dietary advice, it is a highly regulated profession that is anchored to evidence-based data and science.
My interest in nutrition formed in my early 20s during my first pregnancy, when I experienced first-hand, the benefits of good nutrition and what it can do for the body. As my family grew, I discovered that nutrition not only improves physical wellbeing but also emotional and psychological wellbeing. I firmly believe that a well-balanced diet and lifestyle is the best medicine of all, and it is this ethos that underpins my advice and guidance.
I completed a degree in nutritional medicine back in 2014, after which I worked in various NHS trusts helping patients recover from cancer. My main areas of interest are cancer prevention, healthy eating, ageing and weight problems. However, I get most satisfaction in helping clients overcome their challenges and improving their health through simple but effective changes to diet and lifestyles.
I offer consultations at my home in London, online (using Zoom or Skype) or through the phone for clients in the UK and abroad. I was born in Spain and am fluent in both Spanish and English. Current safety guidelines mean that right now, most of my consultations will be delivered online or through the phone.
