Samantha Josephs has been working as a Registered Nutritional Therapist in her North London practise since 2008 using a Functional Medicine approach to Lifestyle Medicine. Her experience encompasses a wide variety of conditions and she has personal and practical knowledge in autoimmune conditions, particularly Multiple Sclerosis, as well as living with dietary restrictions including dairy-free or gluten-free diets.
Samantha works as a guest lecturer for the Institute of Optimum Nutrition (ION) and BCNH training upcoming nutritional therapy students in a variety of conditions, including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Autism and ADHD, Alzheimers and Dementia.
Samantha is very active in the MS community and has presented to many MS support groups, including taking part on an expert panel at the MSLife Expo in 2016. She works as a facilitator for the charity Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis presenting at conferences, hosting webinars and facilitating retreats.
She has also undertaken projects tackling health and nutrition within schools and colleges involving practical hands-on education for students, parents and staff in order to improve nutritional standards whilst supporting specific educational needs.
Being a real ‘foodie’ herself, Samantha’s vision for Nutritionista is to promote good health and eating practises but without depriving you of delicious and desirable foods. She believes — like many others — ‘prevention is better than cure’.
Samantha gained a BA Hons degree at Leeds University, then went on to enrol in BCNH (UK College of Nutrition and Health) graduating with a Distinction in Nutritional Therapy in 2008. She is a member of BANT (British Association of Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine), and the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council), the only register for Nutritional Therapy recognised by the Department of Health.
