1. Working as a Consultant in Nutritional Medicine (clinical work)
Over what feels like decades (because is decades !), Juliet has gained enormous experience in clinical practice from within the NHS and private healthcare. Research in nutrition science continues to accelerate awareness of the relationship between nutritional status and physical and mental health. The combination of her clinical and academic roles enables her to continuously build her knowledge base and develop expertise in several specialist areas of nutritional medicine.
Neurology and cognition
Nutritional medicine and lifestyle adaptations to help protect and enhance brain function. The importance of nutrition to our cognitive function is unequivocal and our daily diet can influence many areas of cognition including memory, attention, judgement, and other vital functions. Expert nutritional medicine can protect against cognitive decline in aging.
Probably the most important area of our work in nutrition. It’s so important that we reduce our food-related carbon footprint. Juliet and her team provide information that enables people to make meaningful. Impactful changes that will lower carbon emissions, reduce personal carbon footprint, and help protect the future of the planet. We help combat global warming and reduce climate change.
Immune resillience & adapting to living in high viral load e.g Long-covid & influenza
Anti-inflammatory immune adaptation to combat conditions including:
a) Skin Conditions: psoriasis, eczema, acne, rosacea.
b) Gastrointestinal conditions: IBD and Chron’s Disease
Modern living impacts the messaging systems within our body, often causing disruption to our natural rhythms. As a result the systems that rely on our hormones to functions properly also become disrupted. Careful nutritional adaptation can help restore those natural rhythms to improve.

As Juliet’s reputation in sports performance nutrition grew, senior executives at several corporations approach her to express an interest in corporate performance nutrition and how her work could benefit their employee health and performance. Juliet worked with various CEOs, executive and senior management teams to design and integrate strategies to help create a healthier company culture. The results from these nutrition and lifestyle interventions were profound. Company employees ate better, slept better, and laughed more. As employees began to thrive, so did the company. These companies soon realised that a small financial investment, alongside some carefully integrated nutritional and lifestyle interventions, produced significant health, well-being, and performance gains. Companies I have worked with, and who value their employees’ health and well-being, include Royal Dutch Shell, ITV, British Telecom, TXM Heath, TXM Plant and Group M and others

When Juliet isn’t working, she is mostly outdoors somewhere, usually with a dog or two or a paddleboard. Her family, friends and dogs are incredibly important to her so there’s usually on or two of them out and about with her.

Juliet works as a digital nomad during these weeks away. She loves these times the most, when her head is clear and her mind flourishes, so many exciting ideas.
