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.
