Dimple is a registered dietitian and NLP practitioner (NLP means neuro-linguistic programming, which is an alternative therapy. The aim is to train the brain to respond in different ways).
In her 21 years with the NHS, she spent 15 of those working in the community with families affected by MND. Her approach is to a) understand how food fits into life, and b) look at the way things we eat and drink affect how we live.
Dimple now runs her own dietetic consultancy practice called Fresh Nutrition in Bolton, which includes appearances at national conferences and on media, such as BBC Breakfast TV.
“With the right guidance, support and knowledge, food can still be uplifting with complex conditions like MND. It has been an honour and a privilege to help people with MND achieve good nutrition and hydration. This can be so empowering. It’s great when you see progress, by helping someone to halt their weight loss or increase energy levels.”
