Meet The Team


Lara Sago
Founder, Nutritionist, Certified Health Coach

Having previously struggled significantly with her own hormone journey and seeing the positive impact nutritional therapy made.  Lara was inspired to share what worked with her and help as many women as possible to overcome their health and hormonal challenges, hence the birth of Nutrition for Vitality.

Having lost her own mum to cancer when she was just one, Lara later became passionate about working with cancer patients, and supporting them, alongside their mainstream treatment with personalised nutrition and lifestyle strategies.  Lara believes a truly integrative approach provides the best chances for the client, and there is plenty of research suggesting the right nutrition and lifestyle strategies may significantly improve patient outcomes.

Lara is also experienced in supporting digestive issues, autoimmune conditions, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, long COVID, skin conditions, and weight management.

Lara prides herself on being approachable and relatable to clients, whilst also being extremely thorough, leaving no stone unturned to support her clients to achieve the best possible results.

Lara has previously written for several publications, and also works as an assessment marker for the renowned Institute for Optimum Nutrition.

Lara has a Diploma in Nutritional Therapy from the College of Naturopathic Nutrition, a Health Coach Certificate from Zest for Life, and has completed the NTEC certified Systems Approach to Cancer course created by Dr Nina Fuller-Shavel, which sets a new standard in cancer nutrition education in the UK.

As well as running her own private clinic, Sophie has worked as part of the clinic team at the Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) in London, where she studied for 4 years prior to that.  More recently she has completed an integrative cancer care course and certification for nutrition professionals, which qualifies her to safely and effectively support clients with or recovering from cancer.
