About Myself

Heather Lee, Nutritional Therapist, Nottingham, Loughborough and Vale of BelvoirI have a degree in Biochemistry from York University, a PhD from the School of Medicine, Cardiff University and have worked for many years in scientific research on food-related areas.

My attention turned to the health benefits of food and nutrients after I had been ill with ME (chronic fatigue syndrome) for several years. During the time I was ill, conventional medicine had little to offer, so I decided to take responsibility for my own health and, after extensive reading, which included Patrick Holford's Optimum Nutrition Bible, I started to follow a programme. This included a healthy diet of fresh food and additional vitamin, mineral and essential fat supplements. Gradually, after 6-12 months following this regime my health improved and eventually led to a full recovery.

The amazingly powerful effect of food on health and well-being then became a passion for me and I decided to train as a Nutritional Therapist at the reputable Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London, where I graduated with Distinction in 2005.

Since training I have worked as a Nutritional Therapist in the Nottingham area seeing clients at clinics in West Bridgford, Loughborough and Upper Saxondale, Radcliffe on Trent. I also give nutrition workshops at the Maggie’s Centre in Nottingham and have been invited onto local radio to talk about various topics on food and health.

Additional activities include being a tutor at the Institute of Optimum Nutrition, giving workshops for local groups on healthy eating and membership of a committee for the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy (BANT).
