Nutritionist at The Bodyworks Practice
Nutrition with Nicole Ferguson. I studied Nutrition at ACNT, Sydney Australia and then completed my degree level Herbal Medicine qualification at CNM, London.
I am a Nutritionist / Naturopath, my aim is to improve your health the natural way through the use food, herbs and supplements. Other naturopathic techniques are often offered and external laboratory testing if necessary.
This consultation is part of the complete naturopathy consultation and includes herbal medicine and iridology.
The Benefits of Nutrition / Naturopathy
It is becoming better known that the food we eat plays a vital role in our health. Food can have powerful effects on the body be it to help ease disease or create it. Herbs are also food but in a concentrated form and can be very beneficial when taken in tincture, powder or loose herb form.
The objective of the consultation is to help the body come back into balance. I work with, nutrition, herbal medicine, iridology, tissue salts, homeopathy and naturopathic techniques within this consultation. Often I can recommend external lab testing to find the root cause of your symptoms.
When you attend to your appointment you can be assured that the main aim is to educate you on your health and to help you understand why and what changes need to be made. Our bodies will always work towards health.
The consultation lasts up to 1.5 hours. I also use Iridology as part of the consultation to help identify your bodies weak and strong points.
You will be given lots of time to discuss your health concern in the consultation so I can understand about your current health and the options that lay before you.
I may request you undertake some laboratory testing this may be: stool, hair, urine or blood depending on what your symptoms are. I find that this, in turn, helps you to save money and time instead of trying lots of different things out. Testing services are via external labs and are an additional cost. Once we get the results back you will be required to come in for a follow up session so I can interpret the results and help you make the right lifestyles choices to improve your health. This way, both you and I know exactly what needs to be worked on. Don’t worry, I will guide you through the tests and make sure you know what needs to be done. I work with many laboratories both in the UK and overseas that can do this. This is known as Functional Medical Testing.
Labs I use are Genova, Invivo, Bio Lab, Cambridge Nutritional Sciences, Mineral check, and Biological Testing Services.
When your body shows signs of dis-ease this may mean there is also a deficiency so if I think that food alone will not help, we need to find what else we can do to help you. Usually herbs and supplements will be suggested.
It is common practice to follow up your session after about 1-3 months depending on what changes are to be made. Many clients come back in for follow sessions monthly or quarterly from here on if needed.
Typical reasons people will come to see a naturopath:
- Reproductive health both men and female
- Hormonal balancing for all stages in life
- Digestive health anywhere from mouth to anus
- Heart and or lung health and associated conditions
- Immune related disorders
- Joint health
- Mood and related disorders
- Healthy blood sugar balance

to name a few…. not one protocol is the same for the next person, I work with the ethos of treating the person with the disease rather than the disease itself.
