Nutritional Therapy: Supporting your Body Systems, alongside your Conventional Treatment.

Where relevant, nutritional support offered to patients is conducted in conjunction with and under the supervision of The Harley Street Breast Clinic.

You may be recommended to book a nutritional therapy appointment by your medical doctor in order to support your body systems whilst you go through conventional treatment or perhaps you would just like to improve your nutrition in order to work towards optimal health.  

Why do we believe that Nutrition and Lifestyle are Important?

The European Investigation of Cancer (EPIC), one of the largest studies of diet and health ever performed, which involved half a million people in ten countries, found that adherence to a diet comprising of mostly fruits, vegetables, fish, olive/sunflower oil, along with the avoidance of Western-type foods seemed to contribute to a reduction in postmenopausal breast cancer risk.

The Annual Report of the President’s Cancer Panel by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published in April 2010 concluded that the real problem of environmentally induced cancers had been underestimated.  Exposure to environmental carcinogens in our food, water and air need to be considered.

There are further studies that indicate that what we eat, drink and how much physical activity we undertake all play various roles in breast cancer, many substances have been identified as carcinogens that we can take simple steps to avoid and some nutrients found in food have been associated with decreased breast cancer risk.


Nutritionist advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice and treatment. We strongly recommend that you contact your medical doctor with any health concerns you may have. Nutritionists work by supporting your particular body systems to support normal body function and to promote optimal health.  However, we do not claim that nutritional treatment corrects, modifies or restores health.
