About Me

I graduated from the Institute of Optimum Nutrition in 2001 and formed Equilibria Health Ltd with my partner Jules in 2004. With a growing team of Nutritionists and a Medical Doctor, Equilibria Health is now recognized as one of the UK’s leading providers of nutrition education.

I deliver an annual series of UK wide practitioner and medical professionals postgraduate seminars, workshops & masterclasses metabolism, health and performance, and nutrigenomic. In addition, Equilibria Health Ltd also instigated an ambitious programme of clinical workshops which has been consistently well received. Over recent years, I have received two nominations for CAM Best Practice Award for clinical excellence. 


I am inspired by seeing people find their niche in life, so several years ago I developed a mentoring arm to the Equilibria business. Providing support for recent graduates and practitioners to help them to achieve their potential, I spend 1:1 time with clients using a variety of techniques to help them to find direction and success in their chosen career.


Past work included practice from the Centre for Health and Human Performance (CHHP) at 76 Harley Street, London, and at Tudor Medical Centre, in Stratford Upon Avon. 
In recent years I have become fascinated by the potential of nutrigenomics, HRV,  metabolism and actively research impact of food in performance and health. My most recent focus is studying the relationship between HRV and blood glucose levels. I have very recently developed a model to asses athletes health looking at data analysis and metabolic behaviour for long term health.

Meet My Team
Jules Cattell BA hons Dip ION mBANT NTCC CNHC
Jules has always had a passion for food but it was following a visit to a nutritionist in 1998 that her interest in food as therapy blossomed. Suffering classic stress related problems, the result of 10 years in a challenging executive role, Jules soon learned the power of food and immediately decided to turn nutrition into her new career.
After graduating with distinction from the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in 2001, Jules started in private practice alongside working as Marketing Manager for the highly regarded supplement company, BioCare. She then returned to ION as a tutor and Year Programme Leader, before forming Equilibria Health Ltd in 2004. 
Jules is now back in private practice at Tudor Medical Group in Stratford on Avon. She is a Clinical Tutor on the MSc Nutritional Therapy course at the University of Worcester, alongside lecturing, writing for the local and national press and being a full-time Mum to Milo!
With over 15 years experience in clinical practice, Jules offers a confident, practical approach to nutrition, tailoring programmes to the client’s needs and lifestyle. She has a particular interest in children’s health issues and having trained at the Autism Research Institute in California she now runs a regular clinic in London with behavioural optometrist Smita Trivedi
