Welcome!

Hi – thanks for stopping by!

I’m Alison Cowell and I’m qualified in both conventional and holistic nutrition. It was never my intention to be a holistic nutritionist- in fact I spent the first 30 years of my working life as a civil servant in London.

However, towards the end of that time, my health was failing rapidly and after many (too many!) years I was eventually diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a very nasty inflammatory bowel auto-immune condition. In a way I was relieved that I had a name for my symptoms, but utterly devastated to be told that the only way I could control it was by taking medication for the rest of my life.

I started to research the condition and, I guess like most of us who have been diagnosed with something, I became ‘an expert’ in it! I realised that a healthy digestive system is paramount to good health so I was eager to learn as much as I could about it. I took several certificates and diplomas in the subject and gained a wealth of knowledge. During my studies I found out that I was hugely intolerant to eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms (pretty devastating for a vegetarian!) I eliminated them from my diet and I couldn’t believe the impact. I felt so much better and, along with all the other things I had put into place through my studies, I came off my medication and have never looked back. Whilst I will never be free of ulcerative colitis, I have been in remission for years.

I developed the products and services of Healthy Eating based on my own experience and the knowledge I acquired – and they work! That’s because at Healthy Eating we treat you as the individual you are. There are no generic solutions, no photocopied diet plans, no putting you in a group or making assumptions based on your ethnicity, weight or age.

Healthy Eating Ltd is a thriving business, with myself and my lovely assistant Amy here to help.  I’ve seen over 10,000 individual clients and I LOVE what I do!! So take a look around the site, join us on Facebook, sign up for our newsletter or make an appointment to invest in your health. We’d love to hear from you!
