About Me

Elaine Jackson BSc (Hons), DipION, mBANT, mCNHC. 

Elaine was careful to structure her advice to me – it was very personal and I appreciated her taking the time to understand me “ Emma, Solicitor, London

Elaine is a registered Nutritional Therapist and certified Metabolic Balance coach. She is founder of Connecting Nutrition and works as a Nutritional Therapist for York Test Laboratories. She completed the Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice programme in the UK.

Elaine graduated with distinction from the world renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition and has a degree in Nutritional Therapy. 

Elaine is a member of BANT (The British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapists), which requires her to abide by strict codes of practice. She is registered with the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), supported by the Department of Health which ensures she is trained to the highest standards laid down by the National Occupational Standards.

Elaine spent over 15 years in advertising and as a board director of a London Advertising Agency, before becoming a Nutritional Therapist. In addition to understanding how diet and lifestyle affected her own health issues, the pressure associated with long hours, tight deadlines, working weekends and two lovely step children, equipped her with the understanding of how the stresses of everyday life affect food, diet and lifestyle choices.

Elaine is committed to the highest standards of clinical practice and regularly attends conferences and educational events at the forefront of nutrition science.
