Please see below under ‘Media Acknowledgment’ where you can click on the orange link.

I was born in London & lived in Hampstead, North West London. When I was three years old, my father, whom graduated at Magdalen College, Oxford, with an MA in languages, decided to move the family to Swindon. He was head of modern languages, at Commonweal School, until he retired. I have two lovely, adult children.
I trained at the prestigious Institute for Optimum Nutrition [ION] in London. Five of my family members have PhD’s [three from Oxford], with three working in the field of medicine. John Auburn, CSO ReOrbit [former UK director for Astroscale - space debris] is one of my three brothers.

Why trust me? As mentioned, I was personally invited to be listed on The Midult website.

"Helen Auburn is very knowledgeable and approachable. Her sports nutrition pack was the perfect fit for Oriol and Helen went the extra mile to ensure Oriol was comfortable with the plan and his preferences were always respected. Helen's expert advice has allowed Oriol to focus on his Judo training whilst feeling full of energy and positivity. Thank you Helen for being part of Oriol's journey to become British Minor Judo Champion, English Minor Judo Champion and Western Area Minor Judo Champion."

“Me and my husband saw Helen in June 2021. At
the time I was post surgery related to Gl and I also
suffered with severe menstrual pains caused by
stage 4 endometriosis. The pains were so severe
that I had to be admitted to hospital on a few
occasions and every month I had to go off sick
from work. After I started following Helen's
protocol my pains completely had gone which
initially was unreal. In addition I feel my body feels
more energised and my skin has also changed and
became more supple and healthy. My husband is in
fairly good health but he also reports benefits from
the protocol he was provided by Helen. To us and
me in particular Helen is my saviour and I am really
grateful for all her help and support. I recommend
Helen to anyone regardless whether healthy or with
health issues. What is also really important to me
is that Helen is not only professional, caring and
well knowledgeable, but also really passionate
about her profession which I do not see very often
nowadays. Thank you very much Helen your help is

”Thank you Helen for all your help and advice on improving my Fibromyalgia and Interstitial Cystitis symptoms. After making changes to my diet and taking the supplements you recommended, within one month I have noticed a considerable improvement in my health. I feel I now have my life back. Thanks again for all your help."

Karen, Swindon

"My wife and I had been trying for a baby for three years, but had so far failed to conceive.
After numerous tests at the doctors we had both been told that we were perfectly normal and that in theory we should have no trouble getting pregnant.
This turned out not to be the case and after several years we were looking at what medical treatments were available before IVF.
My wife took Clomid for 6 months, which was quite unpleasant and was also, unsuccessful.
Additionally, she had also tried acupuncture to no avail.
We decided to commence IVF treatment, but went to see Helen, as a last resort, before starting, to see if it would help us.
Upon seeing Helen at the first consultation, it became clear that both of us had underlying health symptoms, which on the surface seemed unrelated to our fertility issues.
These included bloating/IBS, heartburn and indigestion, skin rashes/eczema/rosacea, low mood/anxiety, pms/menstrual cramps, constipation/diarrhea, tiredness/fatigue and food intolerances/sensitivities.
Following Helen's detailed advice we made subtle changes to our diets and included supporting supplements specific to both of us.
After a few weeks it was clear that many of the symptoms were improving and a few months later most of the symptoms had disappeared completely, if not improved markedly.
A year later we both feel incredible and more importantly, we have a baby boy after the first round of IVF worked first time!
We feel that Helen's treatment was invaluable in helping us to become healthier individuals and her expertise in the field of nutrition may have been the difference in whether IVF worked, or not."

Daniel & Laura, Swindon

"I first saw Helen in Nov 2020 after suffering with awful sickness migraines for the past 2 months & I knew my body wasn’t in tune. Little did I know that they were just symptoms of my body shouting at me for help! I couldn’t wear deodorant and my body felt so tender all the time with constant back ache. She made so much sense talking and listening to all my symptoms over the years, much of which I was told was viral. I had Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia, most likely from my 20’s. Helen gave me fantastic support. It’s like my body has woken up. I’m full of energy and have no aches and pains! My muscles feel so much stronger. I’ve just returned from a walking holiday in Wales and I couldn’t believe how I could just walk so fast up and down the coastal walks. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen, her knowledge is extensive and with her support you feel you have found a good friend. I’m 54 and ready for life!"

Joanne Whichello, Swindon

"I had been suffering with colon issues for a number of years. In 2017 I was diagnosed with unclassified ulcerative colitis.

Over the next three years I tried to find food triggers and remedies to help manage the symptoms [bloating, discomfort and frequent bowel movements]. Whilst I made little progress, I never felt that I had found a solution that would suit me.

In early 2020 I started working with Helen, together we went through a health assessment, diet and supplements. After a few weeks of trial and error, with Helen's support, I started to notice progress. Once we had found a direction, we built upon that together and I now know which foods I can and can't eat. I also know which supplements support a happy gut.

6 months after working with Helen I had a colonoscopy and my gut looks good. In fact, it is looking healthy.

I still have to maintain a diet and supplements that support a healthy gut. The tools and knowledge Helen gave me has allowed me to do that.

Above all, even after our consultation ended, Helen is still approachable and supportive to questions.

Thank you Helen."

Alex, Oxfordfordshire

"I have just completed a month with Helen’s support and I will be able to go forward now with so much more understanding of how what I eat affects my health. I can’t thank Helen enough for all her expert guidance during this period.
I was recommended to Helen by a friend. I had been suffering with diverticulitis, stomach pains, bloating and bowel problems for years. I had recently had a scan and confirmation that my diverticulitis is now extensive. After finishing my third course of antibiotics in 6 months I wanted to find a different kind of help. I consider myself a very active 67 year-old taking lots of exercise, walking, tennis, and weigh less than 9 stone. I thought I was eating healthily. But no, I wasn’t!
Helen has been amazing. Her knowledge and experience have put me on the road to recovery and I feel better than I have for years. Everything Helen recommended has worked. I have followed her detox food protocol and taken the recommended supplements for 4 weeks and my symptoms have disappeared. Bloating has stopped, digestion is back to normal and indigestion has stopped. I have lost a small amount of weight, mainly belly fat, and I feel so much better. During the first couple of weeks of the programme I slept better than I had for months.
At first I found changing long standing habits difficult, but Helen’s support educated me in how to shop for the right foods, create healthier meals and how to replace the foods causing the problems with alternatives that I enjoy. Her month of support was amazing and she was always on call to help me with the smallest of problems. Her quick response to my questions was always so knowledgeable, positive and caring that I gained confidence and began to make big lifestyle changes. I feel well and feel more confident that I can keep symptoms and infections at bay.
I can’t thank Helen enough and I am very happy to highly recommend her expertise."

“When I asked Helen for nutritional help for very high cholesterol of 8.8, I had been told by my GP that I should be prescribed statins. My cholesterol level has fallen in just 3 months. I have increased energy levels, reduced sugar cravings and I no longer suffer from migraines!”

Simon, Swindon

“After completing the protocol (PCOS), I managed to fall pregnant. I gave birth to a healthy, happy, full term baby girl. I have to say it was a very easy and smooth labour and birth. Probably the easiest and nicest birth I've ever had. I think that's testament to the nutritional advice given by Helen.”

Charlotte Hitchen RGN, Chippenham

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. Functional Medicine, 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 food allergies, nutritional deficiencies & toxicity, therefore helping with many health conditions that have been medically diagnosed.

"I contacted Helen as the medication for my Crohn's stopped working and I wanted to try something different. I did some research online but it was difficult to know what would work for me. After a few tests, Helen gave me a list of foods and supplements that would help the symptoms of my Crohn's. Within a couple of weeks I was feeling so much better, the best I have felt since before my diagnosis in 2016, and I’m still feeling great almost a year on.

This has also helped me get back into football, which I haven’t been able to do for prolonged periods of time. I would highly recommend Helen to anyone!”

“Having taken on board what Helen advised, I put it into practice. As a result, over the following year I lost 42kg! Furthermore, I hope that I may have overcome the diabetes, my drug dosage has been reduced by half already, and the next time I visit the doctor, probably in a month or so, I hope I will be able to come off the drugs completely. This achievement has been accomplished in no small part as a direct result of Helen's advice.”
