Lynne Dalton, Dip NT, mNTOI
Registered Nutritional Therapist, Dublin
Lynne is a Registered Nutritional Therapist who believes that health is not just about the absence of disease. We were designed to live long lives with energy and vitality but unfortunately some of the foods we eat today don’t support this. They sap our energy and stop our body systems running in the efficient manner they are supposed to. This belief has created a particular interest in longevity and an enthusiasm for helping clinical patients deal with menopausal symptoms and supporting optimal bone, cardiovascular and cognitive function.
She also has a special interest in digestive health and the ever-emerging field of the human microbiome. Lynne also delivers corporate wellness events and manages our ‘Slimplicity’ healthy eating courses throughout Ireland.
