About Me

Elaine Jackson BSc (Hons), DipION, mBANT, CNHC

Founder of Connecting Nutrition, I run a busy nutrition and weight loss practice in north London and online virtual health consultancy.

Graduating with distinction from the world renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition, I continue to undertake extensive training in Nutritional therapy, a degree in Nutritional Therapy and I completed the Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice AFMCP programme in the UK and apply this personalised and effective health approach in clinical practice.



I am a certified and experienced Metabolic Balance Coach. Working one to one with clients, supporting and guiding their weight loss journey is one of the best things.

I see many clients confused about which form of healthy eating is best for them and why can’t they lose weight when they are hardly eating anything. Many feel they have lost their way with food, undisciplined, confused and disempowered. Food should not be viewed as good or bad or as a calorie. Food should be enjoyed.


I work as a registered nutritionist for YorkTest Laboratories, a leading provider of food and drink specific IgG antibody food intolerance testing programmes.

I have guided thousands of clients on how to approach elimination diets following their test results. In a vast majority of cases, the common complaint is IBS (diagnosed or self-diagnosed) with symptoms. 


I am a member of The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), which requires me to abide by strict codes of practice.

I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC), supported by the Department of Health which ensures my training to be of the highest standard laid down by the National Occupational Standards.

I regularly attend lectures and events to enhance clinical practice and am a senior associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine.
