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.
Our Clinical Services
The Brain Bio Centre offers a comprehensive assessment of the biochemical imbalances and nutritional deficiencies that contribute to mental health symptoms as well as detailed advice and guidance on how to correct these imbalances.
The Brain Bio Centre clinic utilises a variety of biochemical tests to help assess your nutritional status and identify underlying drivers of symptoms. We offer packages of tests related to different mental health conditions, which are aimed for those that would like to gain a deeper insight into biochemical factors that could be contributing to symptoms. However, it is also possible to take individual tests without investing in a package. Your nutritional therapist will advise you on which ones may benefit you accordingly.
Consultations and Programmes
We offer both individual consultations as well as long-term programmes for those that wish to have more support. A consultation with your nutritional therapist will always include taking a full case history, food diary analysis, advice on biochemical testing and the analysis of results. For more information on biochemical tests, please read our page explaining the test packages that we offer. In addition, a one hour appointment with one of our psychiatrists may be required prior to the initial appointment with the nutritional therapist.
We offer a variety of educational services such as talks and workshops, as well as in-house nutritional therapy through our packages, which offer tailored programmes to target stress and other health issues. Our therapists have extensive experience delivering talks to a wide variety of audiences on the topic of nutrition and mental health. The talks are stimulating and engaging, aiming to help empower people with practical knowledge they can use and implement in their everyday lives.
What our clients say…
“97% of clients say that they would recommend us to friends and family…”
“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”.
