home. Auburn

Welcome to hnt!

I am CNHC Registered & based in Swindon, seeing clients from here and Marlborough, Malmesbury, Newbury, Gloucester, Oxford, Chippenham and surrounding areas. I trained for three years [degree equivalent] at the prestigious Institute for Optimum Nutrition [ION] in London

I really enjoy my work, as a full time, family practitioner & nutritional health coach. I work with men, women & children with debilitating symptoms, who want to improve their health, boost their energy, determine & reduce allergies, 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 Functional Medicine-trained, Registered Nutritional Therapist, can be the first step towards investing in your long-term health and vitality, helping to create a new, healthier you.

"Working with Helen to look at how I could change my eating in order to feel better has been life-changing. I was having a lot of issues related to hormonal changes and they have all without exception improved now that I have changed my diet. She is incredibly supportive and her advice is extremely well-informed and up to date. ~ Dr. Sharon Harvey, Chippenham

"After taking advice from Helen, and following a diet that she recommended would heal my gut and digestive issues, I can say that 6 months on I am now in control of my digestion. Helen is incredibly knowledgeable and helped me find a solution specifically tailored to me. Thank you so much!" ~ Stefan, Faringdon

“ 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, which I was reluctant to take, having researched the harm they can cause. I knew that taking a better approach to my diet and health would be the best option. Helen’s professional advice, excellent knowledge and great support, made following her protocol, easier than I thought it would be. I would highly recommend Helen, as my cholesterol level has fallen in just 3 months (following an independent pharmacy check) having strictly followed the protocol, she specifically designed for me. The protocol developed by Helen, has also helped with increased energy levels, reduced sugar cravings and surprisingly to me, I no longer suffer from migraines! On the whole, a completely different approach to the food I eat.” ~ Simon, Swindon

"I contacted Helen Auburn to improve my diet, general health, and advance my performance at elite level sport, in cycling. The service, continual support, and advice gained from Helen, is simply invaluable. Helen listed all the foods and supplements required to drastically improve my diet, performance, and overall well being. For me, this simply removes the tedious guess work, wondering if I'm eating and supplementing correctly, as an individual.

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

"I had been suffering with debilitating chronic fatigue for 12 months when I contacted Helen. I was unable to work and barely left the house due to anxiety and fatigue. I had multiple food intolerances and difficulty digesting a range of foods. I had tried a local herbalist and nutritionist, and had received acupuncture treatments all for several months, but had made little progress in digestion and fatigue. Helen proposed a different approach to food and supplements and I was willing to try anything that might help me. I was really grateful for Helen’s support, which far exceeded anything that previous practitioners had offered. I was also impressed that she was willing to listen to and work with me, I have learnt a lot about my own body through this whole process which will support me in the rest of my life. I have tackled my health issues from multiple angles, in addition to nutrition, and I haven’t relied on Helen to know all the answers, but she certainly knows a lot when it comes to supplements and consulting her throughout has been a great support and guide. I am delighted that after 4 months of working together all my digestion issues have been resolved: histamine intolerance, intolerance to egg, difficulty digesting fibre, fogginess and fatigue have all vanished. Thank you Helen! I now have my life back." ~ Kathryn, Swindon

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 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
  • arthritis
  • osteoporosis
  • intraocular pressure [IOP]
  • diabetes
  • tinitis
  • depression
  • multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • thyroid issues
  • cardiovascular disease e.g. high BP
  • infertility
  • heavy metal toxicity
  • weight loss
  • inflammatory skin issues e.g. acne, eczema, psoriasis

  • non inflammatory, skin issues e.g. cherry anginomas
  • insomnia
  • asthma
  • endometriosis
  • inflammatory bowel diseases [IBD's] e.g. Crohn's & colitis
  • hormone imbalance e.g.PMS, amenorrhoea, menopausal symptoms
  • frequent colds
  • hay fever
  • migraines
  • headaches
  • cystitis
  • thrush
  • mood swings

"For as long as I could remember, I struggled with weight loss. I tried all sorts, but nothing stuck. Then in recent years my energy levels got so low, and I battled with migraines regularly. I was getting desperate. Helen came highly recommended by someone I knew through work, and since then, I have never looked back. Helen made me feel so comfortable during our consultations, and her wealth of knowledge made me feel I could trust everything she said.

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 first saw Helen, about 17 months ago. The impetus to see her, was the fact that I had been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, a year, or so before. I had already started to take proper exercise to combat the condition, but I knew I needed much more, including in particular, a complete change of diet. I think it was one of those irritating celebrity post holiday diets, which spurred me to get proper knowledgeable advice, and so I went to see Helen. She was so professional, looked at my situation in great detail, and gave me some extremely sensible, and practical advice. 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.

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

Helen Auburn: CNHC Registered, Functional Medicine, Nutritional Therapist & Nutritionist for Swindon, Newbury, Gloucester & Oxford

"Helen really knows what she is talking about. The help, advice and support, I received from Helen, was absolutely life changing, because it completely transformed my health and my whole life. I was eating healthily, as far as I was aware, so I didn't understand why I felt so bad, all the time. I was getting stomach pains and eating a diet that was recommended, if you have PCOS, which was one of my problems. I have never been overweight, and got lots of exercise. I had been to see doctors, who were no help, whatsoever. I was also finding it hard to conceive, at this point, but I was doing everything the books were telling me to do. I couldn't understand it, and being a nurse, I felt I knew something wasn't right. I knew the doctors that had told me I was fine, were wrong. I went to see Helen, as a last hope. I followed the new diet and supplement protocol. After following the diet and supplement protocol, for several months, I started to notice unbelievable, and incredible improvements, to my overall health. The difference was amazing, and unbelievably, at the end of completing the protocol for six months, I also managed to fall pregnant, which to be honest, I had kind of thought, would never really happen, again! I would say it's been a complete life changing journey, and an absolute revelation, to be able to understand what my problems were, and to be able to take control over my problems, that the doctors never tell you about! Helen gave me all the support I needed through the six months, and she always answered my questions, of which there were many! And even though they felt like silly questions, Helen never made me feel like they were. The whole experience has completely changed my life for the better, to the point, where I am inspired to do a nutritional course, in the future. I thoroughly recommend anyone, to see Helen. Follow the protocol, and it will seriously change, not only your health, and well being, but your whole life! It has been worth every penny. In fact, you can't put a price on it! It's invaluable advice, and be prepared to change some of your ideas of what we are told about our health, and nutrition. The most incredible advice, I have ever had! Thank you so much, Helen." ~ Charlotte Hitchen RGN, Chippenham. Update: October 2018 "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. It was also a very healthy pregnancy. I felt energised, even at the very end when previously, with my other children, I have felt very tired and worn down, towards the end . Helen was always there, if I needed any advice, or I had any questions. It was a huge support for me. Thanks so much Helen for all your amazing advice and support, throughout. I definitely will be continuing to follow Helen's nutritional advice." ~ Charlotte Hitchen (RGN), Chippenham
