My name is Helen Auburn and I am a Functional Medicine trained, Registered Nutritional Therapist & Nutritionist.
Welcome to hnt!
I am CNHC Registered & based in Swindon, seeing clients from here and Marlborough, Malmesbury, Newbury, Gloucester, Oxford and surrounding areas. I trained for three years [degree equivalent] at the prestigious Institute for Optimum Nutrition [ION] in London
I love what I do! As a family practitioner & nutritional health coach. I work with men, women & children with debilitating symptoms, who want to improve their health, boost their energy and learn to enjoy living life to the full. I use nutrition and health coaching to help YOU become the healthiest and fittest you can be!
Making sure we eat the right foods for us, in the right way, is the basis of good health: being aware of our diet and tailoring it to our bodies’ needs is one of the most powerful tools available for the prevention and treatment of illness, supporting the natural healing process.
Consulting with a holistic, functional medicine-trained Nutritional Therapist, can be the first step towards investing in your long-term health and vitality, helping to create a new, healthier YOU!
Helen has always been there to help me, no matter how many questions I've needed to ask. I would certainly recommend her to anyone seeking a highly professional and friendly nutritional therapist." ~ James Wilson, Newbury www.jawphotography.co.uk
The Benefits of Functional Medicine, Nutritional Therapy
Our bodies run on the food we eat: it’s our fuel. Making sure our food is right for us, of the best quality and prepared in the right way can have a big effect on how we function in our daily lives, at work, or emotionally in family or personal situations. Nutritional Therapy can help find the right balance in the way we approach our lives, ensuring we work to our optimum potential throughout the day.
Functional medicine, nutritional therapy advice, helps you to understand and make changes to the kinds of foods you eat and determine nutritional deficiencies & toxicity, therefore helping with many conditions that have been medically diagnosed, including Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
The above and the following list of health issues, which, as a nutritionist, I have treated, or are currently treating:
- food allergy & food intolerance
- acid reflux
- intraocular pressure [IOP]
- multiple sclerosis (MS)
- thyroid issues
- cardiovascular disease e.g. high BP
- heavy metal toxicity
- weight loss
- inflammatory skin issues e.g. acne, eczema, psoriasis
- non inflammatory, skin issues e.g. vitiligo, cherry anginomas
- inflammatory bowel diseases [IBD's] e.g. Crohn's & colitis
- hormone imbalance e.g.PMS, amenorrhoea, menopausal symptoms
- frequent colds
- hay fever
- mood swings
I am only at the beginning stages of my program, but I am already seeing amazing results in how I feel and how my body is changing, and the migraines have stopped too. Helen has been a great support and been there for me, when I have questions, or facing a challenge. Working with Helen was the best decision I could have made for my health, and I am so thankful for her, and can't wait to share with her the end results." ~ Abigail Strickland, former Whatley Manor, Aquarius Spa Manager, Easton Grey, Malmesbury

I regularly keep updated with the latest research with Continual Professional Development [CPD] events and have given talks on BBC Wiltshire, Swindon & JackFM. I love to keep fit. I am very knowledgeable, regarding sports nutrition, so I keep up to date, by attending sports nutrition seminars.
I'm the Swindon Advertiser's nutritional advisor & therefore, I feature several times a year, with my point of view, regarding the latest health research.

Finally, over the night of 24/25 June 2017, I participated in The Ridge Walk over 52 miles, for Sense, a charity supporting those with sensory deprivation and Rubella. This was not something I could have even dreamed of doing, when I first saw Helen. I was the oldest participant in the 52 mile walk, and coming in at 17 hours and 3 minutes, I was the 11th finisher out of 62!" ~ Nicholas, Marlborough
