Help Yourself to Health, founded by Registered Nutritionist, Diana Hervé, is a nutritional and lifestyle service for everyone, of every age, to learn about the best ways to improve their health and well being or overcome disordered and emotional eating.
I believe everyone can benefit from nutritional therapy in order to alleviate nutritional and lifestyle imbalances that may be causing chronic, long term health problems and debilitating symptoms such as fatigue, IBS, or disordered eating/digestive issues and weight gain. Understandably, these problems can affect a person’s enjoyment and quality of life.
Help Yourself to Health promotes the message that if we increase and balance our nutrient intake, then not only can we improve the health of our gut, immune system and hormonal balance, but we can promote excess fat loss and be a healthy weight. I will mentor you on your personal journey; provide you with all the nutritional information you need to recognize that nutrients are your currency, and they can be consumed in the most delicious meals - I will even provide you with a recipe pack alongside a personalised programme. Your journey to optimum health and wellbeing begins as soon as you learn how to 'eat yourself to wellness'!
It all starts with the shopping basket - by filling your shopping basket/fridge/cupboards with lots of raw ingredients and whole, fresh foods, then most meals can just be a concoction of these ingredients and a selection of any of these foods will yield a nutritious meal….we literally open the fridge door and 'help ourselves to health', because nutrients = health - the more we eat, the healthier we can be, and eventually we can learn to make positive associations between the nutrients in our diet and the health benefits we experience.
I’m here to help you by sharing my knowledge so that you can achieve your health and lifestyle goals.
Together we can do this.

Testimonials summer 2017
I first contacted Diana after being under the Hospital for about 5 years and
nobody listening to me when I told them my Bowel condition was not
responding to medication, because of what I was eating. I was told I just
needed to eat following a Low Fat and Low Fibre plan, but I knew it was more
than this. I was so worried about eating out, especially on Coach Trips. I
would go out and not eat anything from the night before until I got home
that evening and sometimes this could be nearly 20 hours!
I felt that Diana actually listened to me and she devised an Eating
Plan for me that was so different from the way I had eaten before and I felt very
nervous before I started it. However, within a week of following her way of eating,
things started to improve and I actually felt confident in eating while I
was out and everything has got better. I still have to watch what I eat but
the way my life around food has changed is very encouraging for the
I can't thank Diana enough, especially knowing that I have a contact
whenever I needed it.
Having been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in January, a friend recommended Diana to me as a nutritionist who would be able to help me. When I had my first consultation, I found Diana very easy to talk to and very supportive. It was obvious that she has experience in dealing with my type of health problem and that she has great knowledge of nutritional therapy. Diana was able to design an easy-to-follow diet plan and she gave me very good advice on dietary supplements and ways in which I could strengthen my gut to cope with the many antibiotics I have to take to control my other long term illness, Bronchiectasis. By following Diana's plan and suggestions I have been able to control my Colitis and make the necessary lifestyle changes when I am experiencing a flare-up. I would thoroughly recommend Diana to others.
I took my 17 year old daughter to meet with Diana hoping to get some answers, and we got so much more! Diana was absolutely fantastic with her - she listened to her and put a plan into action that has truly changed my daughter’s health. My daughter now has knowledge that will stick with her throughout her life. We cannot recommend and thank Diana enough .
I have just logged on with the specific aim to thank you for last night. After a busy day at work and train delays I was more in the mood for putting my feet up but I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed last night, it was a brilliant evening, fun but most of all inspirational. I love food, but lack confidence when cooking and actually need to see how things are done to do them myself. I loved the fact that we could really all get stuck in if we wanted to and get really up close and see what was going on which made a big difference to me. The food was absolutely amazing and so simple to prepare. I also enjoyed the fact that we got to taste everything too (it was all delicious). I have just prepared the stuffed peppers for later and can't wait to surprise the family with something different (and healthy) for a change as we just seem to eat the same old things week in, week out.
I hit a milestone birthday last year and it took a while, but eventually had that light bulb moment and realised if I wanted to keep as healthy as possible, I would need a consistent approach to my lifestyle, not and on-off with no clear aim in mind. Diana is her own best advertisement, the embodiment of good health and vitality so for me, the absolute right person to help me through. With her guidance, I've followed the six week plan, and made a gradual, but marked shift in my approach to my overall wellbeing, not just focusing on weight loss, although that is one very happy outcome. I enjoy the way I eat now and always look forward to my varied and colourful meals. I'm a natural lounge lizard so you won't catch me at the gym but more fresh air and some small steps have enabled me to take my own giant leap.
Thanks to Diana for making me so happy with my body again. I have managed to lose all my baby weight that I have been carry around plus more and I feel so confident and good about myself. I feel like I have so much more energy and it's all thanks to Diana guiding me to eat healthy and exercise more. My children love helping me prepare our meals and love all of Diana's recipes. Having Diana's help has really changed the way my family eat, my husband and myself are much more healthier and our children are following in our foot steps.
Thanks to Diana, my daughter now has a good understanding of which foods were upsetting her and is able to avoid them.This has made her more confident when eating out and she is now more healthy and happier in herself.
I have now successfully lowered my Cholesterol level and am grateful for Diana's excellent advice .She has helped me to improve my health and has also given me great tips on lifestyle and mindset in a very friendly, kind and caring way.
I needed to get help before middle age turned into old age all too quickly. After a consultation Diana suggested I avoided dairy, sugar and refined, processed carbohydrates and to drink a glass of vegetable juice a day which included fresh ginger and other vegetables, which have anti inflammatory properties. She explained how important it was for me to eat essential fatty acids every day too, so I now sprinkle nuts and seeds onto my food, and use olive or linseed oil whenever I can.
