Alison Orr

food intolerance expert Ali

I’m Ali – I am a qualified Nutritional Therapist and I’m currently completing the Institute of functional medicines practitioner training (IFMCP). I have always been interested in health and exercise. From growing up as a gymnast to now providing training in weights, pilates and high-intensity interval training (HIIT). I like taking part in team challenges such as Tough Mudder and enjoy being outdoors whenever possible. I also love dogs, travel and Thai food!  

As a Nutritional Therapist, I find most of my clients approach me with digestive complaints and weight loss which is where most of my experience lies. However, I also have experience with hormone balancing, autoimmunity and overall general health improvement. I have a real interest in mindset and to motivate clients by helping them realise that they are capable of anything they put their mind to. I find that fixing a client’s mindset is a fundamental step in making dietary changes. When things seem daunting, they can be broken down into manageable and sustainable lifestyle changes.

I thoroughly enjoy what I do; nutrition and exercise was a hobby long before it became my profession. I aim to empower people with knowledge. Helping people make changes, providing them with direction and realising their full potential are the most fulfilling aspects of my role.

Why YorkTest?

YorkTest is at the forefront of IgG testing which is great to be a part of. I have the opportunity to work with many clients from a range of backgrounds who are looking for support in different areas of their health. I aim to provide information that is individually tailored to them. I have also appeared in YorkTest’s latest TV advert which you can watch here.

What are the highlights of your role?

I take pride that I can provide people with information that can really impact their lives. I receive great satisfaction when I give advice to my clients and this leads to a better lifestyle and quality of life, especially when they are on the road to becoming healthier and happier.

How to arrange your consultation:
