“I was really lucky to get on the certificate course last minute. I remember spending the course weekends with my jaw dropping, with the information I was hearing and learning about. Little did I know I would love the course so much that I would go on to complete a diploma in Nutritional Therapy! AND my diploma would lead me into starting my own business!!!! What I learnt will stay with me forever…………everyone should have this knowledge.”
A little bit about the products I sell as exclusive agent in Ireland: BioGaia probiotics contain the Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis (L. reuteri) which is a patented probiotic bacterium with exceptional and well documented health benefits. Clinically documented to maintain digestive health and body’s natural defence (70% of immune system is in the gut!). L. reuteri is considered a truly superior probiotic. They have demonstrated beneficial effects on common digestive upsets such as diarrhoea, constipation, gas and bloating.
BioGaia probiotics are available in drop or tablet form. The drops are the only liquid probiotics available in Ireland. They are convenient and simple to give infants & children, as they do not affect breastfeeding or the taste of food. Clinical trials have proven to reduce crying in colicky babies by up to 74%!
Nutritional Therapist (DipNT), member of NTOI, BANT and BSIO
I trained to become a Nutritional Therapist at IINH, from 2008 to 2011. What really appealed to me was that the college gives you loads of practical food and nutrition knowledge in the first year already, unlike all the other colleges. It means that you can start working with people and making a change even before you get into the nitty gritty of anatomy, physiology, pathology, supplements etc. I highly recommend the college with all the very dedicated and hard working staff.”
Patricia Daly is a fully qualified Nutritional Therapist (dipNT, mBANT, mNTOI) based in Dublin, Ireland. Following her cancer diagnosis, she began studying nutrition. Since graduating from IINH she now specialises in the area of Integrative Cancer Care. She is currently doing a course called “Nutritional Medicine in Oncology” at the Tumour Biology Centre in Freiburg, Germany, and is a member of the British Society for Integrative Oncology (BSIO). Her clinics are based in Dublin 6 and 2 but she also does phone/Skype consultations for clients who cannot travel that far or live abroad.
Beside individual consultations, Patricia also lectures on IINH’s Nutritional Therapy programme in Bray, works with corporates to enhance the health of employees and writes articles for various magazines.
Embracing nutrition in its wholeness is a way to change the way we live. I enjoy assisting clients with one-to-one consultations aimed at improving the diet according to their unique needs. I also give weekly classes on nutrition, explaining the basics, how to choose and use foods, and providing recipes that are easy, fast and inexpensive. I organise monthly cooking classes with different nutritional themes.
Customers will be cooking themselves, use tools and foods that are commonly available in out shops I also pair with a Yoga teacher in workshop where Yoga and Nutrition can be helpful, having monthly workshops where also food is provided. Knowing about food, nutrients and its effects on our body is not sufficient without putting in practice your knowledge. This means evaluating oneself, cooking and enjoying the benefit of food while enjoying the cooking and the food itself.
“This is a brilliant course. I gained a lot of confidence. This was crucial for me and helped me enormously. Studying with likeminded people helped me focus and get a sense of direction and clarity of purpose. The tutors are excellent and there is great support for students.”
I have worked in my local health store for 18years and during this time have seen a lot of people with Food intolerance and sensitivities. I have food intolerances myself and know how difficult it is to get a diagnosis and to find foods to suit my restricted diet. In my clinic I use either the Vega Testing Method or the Fitzwilliam FoodTest to test for intolerances. I give advice on diet, what to eat and how to prevent nutritional deficiencies. I also recommend supplements if required.
Stress and lifestyle factors are often contributing factors and considering their effect on the health issue will form part of the treatment protocol. I have been working successfully with food intolerance for the past four years. Also available at Clair’s Clinic is a Coeliac Screen test and a test for Candida and Bach Flower Remedy Consultations.
Nutrition Therapist BA (hons) Psychology, Dip NT, mNTOI
“The teaching and the support were second to none. IINH have set me on a new and exciting career in nutrition, I have never looked back!”
With a background in psychology I have a keen interest in mental wellbeing. Nutrient therapy targets imbalances that affect neurotransmitter activity and healthy brain chemistry. At my clinic I use lab testing to determine any deficiencies or overloads of specific elements that affect mental health, and devise a nutrient protocol to balance these. This therapy may benefit sufferers of depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, bi-polar, or aggressive behaviour.
I also specialise in digestive issues. The gut or ‘second brain’ is vital for proper absorption of nutrients and for optimum health. Conditions that can benefit from nutritional therapy include IBS, IBD, constipation/diarrhea, ulcers, heart burn, bloating, candida to name a few. I also trained with Lucille Leader in the nutritional management of Parkinson’s Disease and am now also specialising in this area.
I qualified as a nutritional coach in May 2013. Prior to the course and currently I am a personal trainer/ gym instructor. In my job I never felt I knew enough about nutrition. I found it extremely frustrating to push my client physically but yet not see them hit their target weight or fitness potential. The reason for this was purely down to their diet. To achieve results it’s down to 70-80% diet and 20-30% training, so nutrition was the only option I had if I wanted my clients to reach their potential, but also for my own benefit.
The course with IINH was fascinating. To learn how much damage or benefit food can have on the body is just unbelievable. I am delighted I decided to do the course because there is so much to learn that can benefit not only clients but also me. I would highly recommend the course to anyone interested in nutrition or suffering from an illness etc. At the moment I’m meeting with clients, giving them nutritional advice along with an exercise plan. I’m based at Crossfit, Walkinstown D12, but also do house calls.
Nutritional Therapist – Optimum Energy through Nutrition
Graduated as Nutritional Coach in 2011 and will graduate as Nutritional Therapist in 2014.
The IINH has given me tools to help people change their life through healthier eating habits, make better lifestyle choices and help raise their awareness about nutrition. I have grown hugely in my knowledge and as a person through the studying, lectures, and clinic work at the IINH. Felt supported through their holistic approach and the experience of their staff.
As a highly personal, intuitive and creative Nutritional Coach I can relate to all ages and professions. I have been providing one to one consultations as a Nutritional coach. Dealing with clients seeking assistance with fatigue, low energy and vitality, poor sleep, stress, digestive dysfunctions such as IBS, constipation and bloating, food intolerances, weight loss and, weight management. I have been giving diet and lifestyle advice through creating a safe space, showing and providing understanding, compassion and, guidance. Using my coaching and counseling skills extensively for which I have received great feedback such as being methodical, having great insight, excellent and specific questioning, and suggestions/advice around food, providing great motivational support, excellent stress/lifestyle advice. I work as a Reiki practitioner and I strongly believe that wellbeing and helping people get more energy, deal with trauma and everyday life issues go hand in hand with healthy eating habits. I love working with people, and every client I have worked with so far is looking for understanding, compassion and someone to guide them and listen to their story. Having the knowledge to help people with their food and lifestyle choices is a vital step in the work I already do!

Qualifications: Dip. Life & Business Coaching; BETEC Advanced Diploma in Nutrition & Health Coaching, ITEC, FETAC (Level 6)
I became interested in Nutrition in 2005 because I refused to accept the diagnoses given by my doctors and specialists that I had to live the rest of my life in pain and with endless restrictions.
Bit by bit I changed my diet and gradually got my life back! I returned to college to study Nutrition because I want to help other people make the same discovery I did. In 2010, I qualified as a Health & Nutrition Coach with the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health with two distinctions!
My aim is to show clients how small simple changes to their diet can drastically change their lives. I am particularly interested in food intolerances, Mum & Baby, weight loss and general health. I continued training in 2011, receiving a Merit in the FETAC Level 6 course “Train the Trainer” as well as becoming a zest4life Nutrition & Weight Loss Practitioner.
I run a private clinic in Johnstown, Co Kildare but also travel to clients’ homes.
I’m a qualified Nutritional Therapist and hold clinics in the South Dublin area. My work is to empower clients to take control of their health through positive and scientifically grounded changes to their diet and lifestyle.
A positive change in eating patterns gives the body the right conditions to return to proper functioning and health. The great news is that it doesn’t have to be a sacrifice either. I can help you get well while enjoying foods that taste great.
My aim is simply to help people make the bridge between where they are now and great health and wellness. I work with a whole range of health conditions both diagnosed and unrecognised.

My interest in nutrition and healthy living led me to the Irish Institute for Nutrition and Health in 2005, from which I graduated in 2008. I loved my time at IINH, met a lot of like-minded people and I was very inspired by the excellent lectures. This led me to open my own nutritional therapy clinic in Carlow after graduating. I now work in partnership with Ashling Ward and we run a very successful clinic working with adults, children and families.
I have been working in the area of holistic health for over 13 years. As a mother of four grown up children, my approach to a healthy lifestyle is both practical and achievable. I am passionate about motivating people to take control of their own health. I love sharing my experience and enthusiasm for healthy eating and living, and believe in increasing people’s awareness through education.
At The Nutrition Clinic in Carlow we run workshops and seminars on a variety of health topics. We provide talks to schools, the corporate sector and various community groups.
At our clinic we work with adults, children and families. Over the last number of years, I have worked with many clients presenting with a variety of health issues from digestive ill health and female hormone imbalances to weight management and immune system problems.
I now also work as a student clinic supervisor with IINH at their student clinic in Bray.
Ke’Ola Health is born out a deep desire to help you to live a healthier more fulfilling life, by connecting you to the incredible healing power within you. Normal life is not always conducive to wellness, and so I strive where I can, to help you gain a little more balance. I do that in any way that I know how, but I mostly use nutritional therapy and yoga. If you need to get to the root cause of your current health issue, nutritional therapy is sure to bring you closer to your goal.
I practise in Cork and details of what you can expect from a consultation, some of the health issues I am trained to help you with, fees etc. can be found on my website.
I’ve always had a keen interest in nutrition and health and after completing a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy with the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health in 2009, I left my sales career to follow my passion and become a Nutritional Consultant in the Cork area.
Nutrition is the foundation of our health and even if we have to use conventional medicine, we can still use the nutritional recommendations to keep us as healthy as possible. Everyone can create new habits and achieve the desired result to maintain health for a lifetime. I’m very passionate about the whole area of lifestyle changing, to improve people’s health, emotionally & physically, for the better. I use Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) skills during consultations to help people move to a healthier lifestyle.
My particular areas of interest and expertise are in children’s health, fertility, women’s health, weight loss, stress and lifestyle balancing.
I’m also a regular contributor to Nutrition topics on Cork’s Red FM and The Irish Examiner’s Feel Good weekly health supplement and I specialise in Corporate Nutrition (Talks, Presentations, Demonstrations and 1:1 consultations).

I studied with IINH for three years from 2007-2010 and while it was a challenging course it taught me valuable skills and knowledge that I have now transferred into a viable business – The Nutrition Clinic working with Margot Kearney . Working in the area of nutrition has been so rewarding on many levels and without the support and teaching from IINH none of this would have been possible.

I loved studying with IINH, the weekends were always too short, the friendships were lasting, the three years were over so fast! I look back now at what also seemed to be hard slogging to learn the curriculum, attempting to make sense of the body, to build a solid scientific foundation and how that has stood to me in practice.
I vividly remember the debates, the fears, the doubts, the thinking we ‘knew it all’, and then the shared excitement at the acquisition of knowledge and understanding, the growing realisation that we were holding something precious in our hands. It was great, I look back on it now and realise it was a period of growing up…or maybe of waking up…perhaps from naivety. Only for the bigger fish I still need to fry, I’d go back and do it all again in a heartbeat!
I practice nutrition on the principles of Functional Medicine. I specialise in hormone balancing and fertility for males and females.
I embarked on my journey of nutritional learning with the IINH in September 2009. I wrongly assumed my curiosity would be satisfied after the introductory 1st year with Richard, but I was hooked and ‘hungry’ for more knowledge. The following 2 and 1/2 years certainly didn’t disappoint, Nutritional Therapy and Functional Medicine is such a fascinating, rewarding, and constantly evolving field to study and practice in.
The course is incredibly interesting and enlightening, not to mention very hard work at times! In spite of the hard work I enjoyed every assignment and lecture involved in the course and the wonderful lecturing staff played a huge part in inspiring and encouraging my passion for nutrition and health. I have now embarked on the next step of my journey; practising Nutritional Therapy in a professional clinic environment and love every minute of sharing my knowledge & expertise with clients, family & friends.
At Bodhi’s Nutrition Clinic, we passionately believe that what & how you eat profoundly affects your health, mood & energy levels. The science of Nutritional Therapy recognises that food is our main tool for prevention of illness, recovery & all round great health. By making the right changes to your diet, you can often feel much better very quickly.
As nutritional therapists, our work is focused on the unique nutritional needs of an individual. We practice functional medicine, a patient-centred approach based on the recognition of an individual’s biochemical uniqueness, addressing the whole person and not just a set of isolated symptoms. It takes into consideration the web-like connections of all bodily systems, with an emphasis on identifying the root cause of any health issues.
Our aim at Bodhi’s Nutrition Clinic to empower you to take responsibility for your health whether a client has specific symptoms they want to address, or would just like to improve their overall health and feeling of wellbeing. Nutritional therapy can also work alongside your GP and other health professionals.
