We personally experienced the impact of stress and poor nutrition on our physical and mental health
As a Doctor in Dental Surgery and as a Business Consultant, we have both experienced the effects of stress and poor nutrition on our physical and mental health. When meeting at the College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM), we shared a fascination with the evolving research in nutritional science and the associated natural solutions for many health problems. We were particularly inspired by the approach of looking at people holistically and individually, rather than looking at symptoms in isolation and generalising treatments. After 3 years of study and many hours of clinical practice and observation, we graduated with Distinction as Naturopathic Nutritional Therapists. Together we opened the London Wellbeing & Nutrition Clinic (LWNC) with the aim of helping people feel better, healthier and reach their full potential through easy implementable and sustainable steps. We focus on identifying and minimising the impact of stress on physical and mental wellbeing. At LWNC, we pride ourselves on being members of the BANT organisation, our professional body of Registered Nutritional Therapy Practitioners and the Association of Naturopathic Practitioners as well as being CNHC registered. We strive to continuously keep up to date with the latest scientific research in Nutritional Health and attend Continuous Professional Development seminars on a monthly basis.
After obtaining her Doctorate in Dental Surgery and practising in France for 4 years, Anne-Claire worked in central London for over 5 years. She quickly realised that the root cause of many dental and gum issues were due to nutrition. As a preventive measure for her patients, she started looking into Naturopathic Nutrition as a way to reduce the consequences of an unhealthy diet on oral health. With a growing interest in Nutritional Therapy, Anne-Claire decided to obtain her Nutritional Therapist Diploma and started to apply what she was learning into her day-to-day life: she was sleeping better, feeling more energised, less stressed and ultimately feeling much happier. Anne-Claire progressively started developing a particular interest in the impact of stress on the body. Indeed, stress is a common thread in most professions and as a Dental Surgeon, she was experiencing this first-hand and witnessed how changing her eating habits and lifestyle had a positive effect on her stressful life. Anne-Claire has decided to fully dedicate her time to being a Nutritional Therapist and help as many people as she can. Today, her main goal as a qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist is to support clients struggling with anxiety, stress and burnout amongst many other conditions and help them feel better, just as she did, thanks to nutrition.
In October 2023, Anne-Claire was appointed Director of Biomedicine at the College of Naturopathic Medicine where she lectures part-time sharing her knowledge and experience.
Consultations with Anne-Claire are available in French or English. Les consultations sont disponible en français avec Anne-Claire Naturopathe Nutritioniste.
