Nishtha Patel is an internationally respected nutritionist, with a particular interest in diseases of the gut. This specialism developed in 2010 after her own daughter became seriously ill while on a family holiday. Doctors suspected Crohn’s disease and prescribed a regime of powerful drugs. Yet Nishtha’s daughter failed to thrive. In desperation Nishtha took the matter into her own hands and enrolled at The London College of Naturopathic Medicine. After three years of intensive study and research she developed a successful treatment plan for her daughter.
Nishtha continues to devote her life to improving the health and well-being of others through diet and nutrition. She believes passionately in putting the patient centre stage. “Each person has their own unique genetic, environmental and nutritional history,” says Nishtha. “I like to consider the whole person, not just a set of symptoms. It’s key to understanding the body’s natural healing process.”
As part of her on-going training, Nishtha is studying for an IFM Certification in Clinical Practice – a cutting-edge programme developed in the States to better address the health concerns of the 21st-century. She is popular amongst patients for her warm personality and reassuring expertise.

When I came to Nishta my health was deteriorating at a fast level and didn’t know what to do. She was kind, caring and thoughtful helping calm me in my most fragile state. I felt that she went above and beyond what was required of her by answering my every email within 24 hours giving me information about other people that could help me (life coach, skin treatments, acupuncture) and understanding of my situation and did everything she could to help me, my every need was met. I am now a lot more happier and my health is getting stronger every day. Katelyn
