Rachel Philpotts is a nutritionist and mental health expert, founder of re:Nutrition. She holds an MSc in personalized nutrition alongside qualifications in functional medicine and neurolinguistic programming. A member of the British Association for Lifestyle Medicine (BANT), the Complementary Healthcare Council (CNHC) and the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), Rachel has contributed to publications such as BBC Good Food and Good Life North and is in the process of having her Master’s research into stress and major depressive disorder published. She is also active across social media, and has guested internationally on mental health podcasts such as Dawn Breaks and The Mindful Trinity.
Prior to becoming a nutritionist, Rachel enjoyed a successful 13-year commercial career. However, her career-girl lifestyle caught up with her in her 30s and left her tired, frustrated and a shadow of her former self. It took total burnout to make her realise something had to change. It was during this time that she discovered the concept of functional medicine. The simple nutrition and lifestyle changes she made transformed her health, and she was inspired to quit the corporate world and retrain. Now she helps other tired and wired career women to combat fatigue rebalance their mood naturally and feel revitalized, reenergized and restored.
