Lynne Dalton, Dip NT, mNTOI
Registered Nutritional Therapist, Dublin
Lynne Dalton is an experienced clinical 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 women’s health and an enthusiasm for helping clinical patients deal with fertility issues, hormone imbalances, menopausal symptoms and supporting optimal bone health and cognitive function. As a qualified Health and Wellness Coach, Lynne also supports clients in making positive behavioural changes to attain better health and wellbeing.
