Laila Lewis

BSc (Hons), DipCNM, mBANT

After a lifelong interest in natural health and the belief that nutrition is the foundation of well-being, Laila finally bought balance to her own life by leaving a stressful advertising career to undertake 3 years naturopathic nutrition study at The College of Naturopathic Medicine (CNM).
In addition to running her practice, Laila supervises final year student clinics at CNM and is a nutritional advisor in a busy health food store. This keeps her up to date with what natural health products are available so she can pass this knowledge on to her clients.


There are many conditions recognised as requiring unique nutritional recommendations and Laila's training included the management of the nutritional needs of individuals with, among other issues, stress, emotional and psychological imbalance, low energy, digestive disorders, hormonal issues, poor skin condition, immunity problems and weight management needs. Having overcome fertility problems herself, Laila's special interest lies in pre/post-conception care, fertility, weaning and baby and toddler health.
