Welcome to Hannah Barratt Nutrition …

In 2007 I returned from London to my roots in Norfolk where I now live with my husband and 3 children. Not only is the country a fantastic place to bring up a young family, it also provides a number of opportunities, which are complementary to Naturopathic nutrition. We grow our own vegetables (I was particularly pleased with last year’s crop of sweet potatoes), whilst the stunning beaches provide a fantastic backdrop on which to walk our dog (and children) in the freshest of air.

I enjoy running and Pilates and when time permits and my husband allows (as he is left in charge at home), scuba diving in the beautiful Red Sea. Indeed arguably I am at my most fulfilled when diving in the tranquility of the underwater world.

As a family we lead a healthy lifestyle, where both exercise and nutrient rich food play an important part.  My husband is keen on his ‘Sunday roast’ and I am partial to the odd bit of chocolate, although you will be unsurprised to know that it is the 80% variety!  Nutrition is not about eating an inedible diet.  It is about packing the flavours and nutrients in.  Nothing pleases me more when I hear my children say “Mummy, this is absolutely delicious”.

The Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen

The Dirty Dozen - It is so important to wash your fruit and vegetables in order to remove pesticide residues. The worst offenders are known as the ‘Dirty Dozen’. Here is a list of those [...]

How I Work

I work on the basis that everyone is unique.  What might work for one person won’t necessarily work for another and this is why taking a thorough case history in the initial consultation is imperative.  I often get asked for advice on certain ailments, but without knowing their root cause it is very difficult to offer the right support.

It is important to stick to the plan that I draw up in order to see results, however I don’t believe in cutting everything ‘bad’ out immediately, unless I feel the client can cope with this on both an emotional and a physical level.

I have chosen to work from home in order to create a comfortable stress free environment for both my clients and me, without the worry of parking in towns and traffic etc.

What to Expect

You may have already seen a complementary therapist before and already have an idea of what to expect, but I shall give you a brief overview of how our meeting will run before we start.

An initial consultation will normally take 90 minutes. During this time I will ask questions about the client’s condition, medical history, diet and lifestyle.  In addition it is important to know of any conventional treatments that they may be taking. I may look into the iris (Iridology), or do face, tongue and/or nail diagnosis to get a better picture of the complete health state of the client.

Don’t expect immediate results.  The reason for the follow-up 6 weeks later is to allow time for the plan to start working.  You may only notice slight changes to start with but hopefully by 6 weeks you will notice a marked improvement.  Please remember I am always on the end of the telephone or email should you have any questions regarding your plan or symptoms.

The Process

A full case history will be taken in the initial consultation, which will last approximately 90 minutes.  At this meeting it would be useful if you could bring with you the names of any medications or supplements you may be taking.

You will have received a 3 day food diary by email.  Please complete this before your consultation – this needs to be filled out accurately and should include all drinks and snacks, as well as meals.  It is very important for me to know exactly what you are eating and drinking.  Please then return to me by email or bring with you on the day of your consultation.  Following our meeting I will then put a plan together for you and either email (if you are happy for me to do so) or send to you in the post.

I suggest a follow-up 6 weeks later.  It is at this time that you should have noticed some changes.  The follow-up is to see how you are getting on; you may have some other symptoms that you wish to discuss, in which case this can be done at this time.  Further follow-ups can be made to suit you.
