"Melissa Cohen has been a life changing nutritionist for me. Rarely have I met a professional (in any industry) who was so thorough, dedicated, non-judgemental and constructive. She is fully in the trenches with you and looks at things from every possible angle. She is not satisfied until she identifies the root cause of the problem and always finds a solution!"


Hi Melissa,

Your advice really helped me to remain satiated for longer and reduce my cravings which is something that I was struggling with. It also helped me gain a better outlook of food and I am very grateful! I can already see results in terms of definition and I hope that I will be able to make more progress.

Thanks so much again I really appreciate it xx


I would recommend Melissa Cohen - this my story. I was always tired and carried an extra stone since been diagnosed with underactive thyroid - never felt good for long. Then menopause and lockdown on top added to weight and feeling like I lived in treacle. Having worked with Melissa I am eating tasty food , lost nearly a stone and have so much more energy. I feel like myself for the first time in a long time.



I would really like to thank Melissa Cohen who has not only helped me understand good nutrition she has helped me lose weight within a short period of 4 weeks. I'm really pleased with my results and now view this as a life change rather than a diet. Due to Melissa's great food recipes and recommendations on food groups, I've now changed my eating and cooking habits (and I enjoy cooking). Melissa had a personal approach to my needs and likes and I felt she really listened and delivered. I would definitely recommend Melissa, not only has she educated me on eating the right type of foods but also to feel healthy and lose weight at the same time! Win/win!!


After many years of struggling with acne and going to various practitioners which didn't help, I luckily found Melissa and had a few consultations. I highly recommend doing so as it was a complete game-changer and my skin is the best it has ever been and is clear now after a few months of following her recommended protocol. The supplements and advice really changed my skin and I am so pleased with the results.
Thanks Melissa!


I have been seeing Melissa Cohen for the past several years for nutritional advice and to also help me review my vitamin levels. Following several consultations and advice, I have adjusted my diet and am now eating better taking the correct vitamin supplements so all my vitamin levels are as they should be. I now have more energy and feel I am better health.


I am so proud to write this reference for Melissa Cohen.

In mid 2019, I was diagnosed with acute hypertension and high blood pressure from extreme work and business travel. I had also begun to experience significant body pain, chronic fatigue and widespread arthritis.

After several months of no answers from US and UK traditional doctors, Melissa Cohen was able to quickly and effectively manage my conditions and get to the causes. Melissa put together action plans including supplements and diet to reverse many of these afflictions.

Today only a few months later, I am happy to say that I haven't felt this good in years. I plan to continue working w Melissa regularly for many years to see how far I can continue to improve my overall health.

She has been there for me every single day with support, guidance and precision advice.


I have discovered a whole new way of enjoying good, healthy foods since my consultations with Melissa. My previous misconceptions about eating well have been totally re-evaluated, and I now find my food choices and preparation methods are much more exciting, nutritious and delicious! I do not consider myself to be 'on a diet' which may end at some point, but now eat wholesome, natural and organic foods including olive oil, nuts and natural full fat yoghurt - all with Melissa's blessing.

I would not hesitate to recommend a consultation and programme with Melissa for anyone who has either lost their way with diets, or who may need a re-boot to literally give them a new lease of life!'

Melissa is very knowledgeable in the world of nutrition and makes healthy eating fun and also provides great nutritious recipes. I am never hungry or bored - which is a first. Melissa caters to each individual needs and is very encouraging and makes you feel great.

Just had to tell you about the most exciting visit I have ever had to Waitrose. Had to stop off en route home. Even the guy on the till said he had never seen foods of the kind I was buying. I feel totally inspired thanks to you - you did an amazing job. I even had the silken tofu. I am genuinely excited in a way that last Saturday I would have found hysterical and even a little bit sad. I cannot thank you enough - I am really really determined. Three inches off waist, two off bust and two off hips. A great kick start.Thank you so much. You did a great job.


I have dealt with nutritionists in the past to try and solve my problem but I have never met anyone who comes close to having the knowledge and expertise that you have regarding nutrition. Have a lovely Christmas and speak to you in the new year.Many thanks.


My daughter is now attending school nearly full time as her IBS symptoms and anxiety have reduced considerably.We will see you in 6 weeks time for a follow up.


I have suffered my whole life with asthma, eczema on my hands and legs and 'irritable bowl syndrome'. Thanks to the team at Functional Health, I have NO more IBS, NO more eczema and the asthma is better than it's ever been.I really love that you spent time finding out what was causing my problems, instead of just writing me yet another prescription.
