What does Spriggs Nutrition offer? 

Spriggs Nutrition specialises in providing tailored nutritional therapy support for those with migraines as well as for those managing connective tissue conditions such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) and the associated health concerns, specifically migraines, chronic headaches and bone health. We do also offer support for other health concerns or those looking to understand how nutritional changes can support their health goals.

Our approach involves both evidence & clinical-based yet realistic guidance to help you reach your health goals, at times this also includes a multi-disciplinary approach. Our recommendations may include nutrition guidance, lifestyle interventions around sleep, stress management and if required testing and supplement recommendations. To help support you, we often use a multi-disciplinary approach. This may include liaising with your GP, a medical specialty/consultant, a physical therapist, dentist, podiatrist, psychological support, and/or occupational health. In some cases, we coordinate care within our clinic where we have Spriggs Chiropractic who offer comprehensive musculoskeletal assessment, including x-rays if clinically indicated & physical and spinal rehabilitation. Our practitioners at both Spriggs Nutrition and Spriggs Chiropractic are trained to at least MSc level.

 

Who does Spriggs Nutrition work with?

There is no ‘typical patient’, we work with a variety of ages, although typically not infants or young children. Examples of enquiries we are asked for help with include;

  • Connective Tissue Disorders such as Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder & hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
  • Musculoskeletal health – inc bone & joint health
  • Migraines & Headaches
  • Gastrointestinal health
  • Blood sugar management
  • Energy & sleep support

Our patients may come with questions or concerns such as (these are just a few examples):

I’m confused by nutrition advice as I have two health conditions & the guidance conflicts or is confusing? 

I am experiencing more and more foods ‘reactions’ & struggling to know what to eat or how to get enough nutrients or energy? 

I often feel; nauseous, full easily, bloated, have abdominal pain or discomfort, acid coming up, bowel movements are a struggle or are urgent, dizzy, fatigued &/or unrefreshed by sleep…the list goes on. 

 

Where are consultations held? 

Our clinic location in central Newbury, so if you are based in Newbury, Thatcham, Hungerford or wider Berkshire area, Oxfordshire, Hampshire, Surrey the clinic is easily accessible for in-person appointments.

For those further afield or if needed for another reason, remote consultations are available via video calls. An initial face-to-face appointment is recommended first, if possible, with the option to move to remote video or telephone call on-going support. We do also offer the option to split consultations into shorter sessions where appropriate – see our Consultations page for more information.
