Carla Bredin - Wild Healthy Nutrition

Carla Bredin, MSc, MA, BA, DipNT

Hi. I’m Carla, Wild Healthy’s Nutritionist. I provide private consultations to people in need of change, who are attempting to manage symptoms related to their diet and lifestyle, such as overweight, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and metabolic syndrome. I have an MSc in Nutritional Medicine from the University of Surrey. My research focused on dietary patterns in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and was the first cross-sectional study of its kind in an Irish population. I have a strong interest in nutritional medicine and lifestyle medicine – the combining of expertise in the pursuit of optimum health for the patient. I work closely with several GPs in Dublin.  I’m originally from Donegal, and that’s where the name comes from. Up there, we use Wild [pronounced Wile] to mean Very. My hope is that someday, an aul’ Donegal fella will walk up to you and exclaim “Jeez, you’re lookin’ wild healthy, hi!” and then my job is done.

What is Nutritional Medicine?

Nutritional Medicine is an evidence-based approach to managing chronic lifestyle-related diseases through diet and lifestyle modulation. Its approach acknowledges the significant role dietary factors play in the development of certain diseases, while also following the best-practice for managing or reversing the disease once it has been established.
