Our Clinic

At the Brain Bio Centre, we believe in an integrative approach to mental health and wellbeing. Specialising in the ‘Optimum Nutrition’ approach to mental health, our team has over 35 years experience in the field and has helped thousands of people around the world. Through consultations and biochemical testing, our experts aim to identify physiological imbalances that may be contributing to symptoms, after which a tailor made diet and supplement programme will be developed to restore balance.

The Brain Bio Centre is owned by the Food for the Brain Foundation, a registered educational charity, and shares a building within the Putneymead Group Medical Practice in Putney, London. It is a not-for-profit clinic, with any financial surplus generated being transferred to our charity Food For The Brain, enabling us to further important work into research, education and raising awareness of the benefits of nutrition.

“I cannot believe how much better I feel after such a short time on the programme. I feel 500% better than when I started 3 ½ months ago. The blood tests showed up food intolerances and vitamin and mineral deficiencies, which allowed the correct actions to be taken and when the results were explained it made complete sense. I am so glad I chose to go to the Brain Bio Centre. I had suffered from depression for several years but didn’t want to go on antidepressants for fear of addiction, and since being on the supplement programme and cutting out the foods I am intolerant to, the depression has lifted”…”I am so grateful to Lorraine, my nutritionist, who has enabled me to move on in my life. It was worth every penny”.
