“Without a doubt, best dietitian ever! I had severe vomiting issues, and no one could identify the reason of it. I tried many diets and seen numerous doctors. Nothing was helpful. Rachel is the only dietitian who was able to identify the cause of it and after following her advice I do not vomit anymore. Rachel is an amazing dietitian, and she is extremely caring. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, I learned something new in each session with her. She helped me understand my body and the right food choices to live a healthy life. “

    The weight loss journey with Rachel has been a real life changer. Before I started working with her I tried to lose weight but I was never able to maintain the weight loss, and I tried so many diets. With the DNA way I finally have something which is specific for me and works for me ! I am so pleased that I learned to be mindful when I eat and I am now able to make those choices even when I eat at the restaurants. I really recommend Rachael especially because you will be able to learn a new lifestyle, you will be fully supported in the journey and she will give you all the tools and support you will need along the way. She is also very knowledgeable and she is able to explain the science behind nutrition in a very simple and enjoyable way. The programme is specific to you and based on your DNA and this is a big difference and I am very grateful I met Rachel, because really changed my life !

She gave me helpful advise to beat the bloat. Her method, the Dna way, has been great to achieve my best self. After my weight loss, I felt reborn.

    I really recommend Rachel Clarkson. I was really lucky to find her e start my weight loss journey with her because I think that Rachel is the best Dietitian I’ve ever met. She did not give me just a diet, but a lifestyle. She didn’t talk just about food, but also how you approach it and your feelings about it. Between one appointment and the other, I never felt alone: I recorded my food journal on an app where Rachel could comment, I followed her on Instagram where she gave lots of advise, I could ask her questions on a Facebook group. She is kind, comprehensive and competent. She supported me on this journey like anyone else did.
