About Foreshore Nutrition
Gut Health and Digestive Wellness Nutrition Expert
Melanie is a Registered Nutritional Therapist who qualified at the internationally renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition and is the founder of Foreshore Nutrition, the name reflecting her Cornish coastal roots. Melanie's passion for nutrition is borne from her own personal journey, seeking answers to chronic health issues and gaining back control of debilitating symptoms using a natural and holistic approach.
Foreshore Nutrition is dedicated to helping you achieve optimal health through personalised consultations using a functional medicine approach. We look at your history, identify and assess potential underlying nutritional deficiencies and biochemical imbalances which may be contributing to your health issues, rather than a conventional 'one size fits all' generic approach.
Melanie specialises in issues surounding gut health and digestive wellness, and is qualified as a SIBO practitioner (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Find out more about SIBO here. However, she sees clients with a wide range of symptoms as the gut is integral to whole body health.
Foreshore Nutrition provides you with a wealth of knowledge and resources. You will have your very own GDPR-compliant online account and personalised nutrition and lifestyle plans are provided along with access to a wide range of functional medicine testing and high-quality supplements. This provides you with a bespoke programme tailored to your individual needs. Seeing clients from Cornwall to Scotland and everywhere in-between, remote online consultations allow easy and flexible access to all.

Don't Let Your Gut Control Your Life
Poor gut health can lead to a range of health issues, from digestive problems to autoimmune diseases.
At Foreshore Nutrition, we specialise in improving gut health through personalised nutritional and lifestyle support using a functional medicine approach. This means that we take a look back through your history to identify potential underlying factors which could be contributing to your symptoms - by addressing these we can tailor your therapy and aim to bring the body back into balance, to help you feel well again.
Bloating, constipation, diarrhoea, bad breath, reflux, nausea, excessive belching or flatulence and abdominal pain are the symptoms we tend to think of being related to poor gut health.
However, low mood, anxiety, skin disorders, hormone imbalances, fatigue, nutrient deficiencies, difficulty losing weight or trouble with sleep can all be linked with poor digestion, disrupted gut health and an imbalance in the gut microbiome.
And if we don't address our gut health, this can lead to inflammation and chronic disease.
As Hippocrates famously said, "All disease begins in the gut".
We Can Help With:
IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Coeliac disease, diverticulitis, gastroenteritis, leaky gut syndrome, GORD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), auto-immune disease

Disrupted gut microbiome/Dysbiosis

Poor diet or malabsorptive issues leading to deficiencies in key nutrients essential for overall health.
